Spotify Double charged me for NINE MONTHS and I am having to beg to get the money back they took

I had a credit card that I just used for internet subscriptions.  I had it on autopay because I trusted the companies that I gave my credit card number to.  

 

Since then, I have gone through all my credit card charges, trying to cut down on my monthly expenses, and I noticed that Spotify has charged me twice for 9 months!  I bring this to their attention, and Spotify said that it was their fault.  When I logged in with Facebook, it somehow made two accounts.  So for 9 months, I was getting billed twice for premium service (only receiving one email a month from Spotify letting me know that my credit card was going to be charged).  The only fault I have in this is not checking my statement from the beginning.  

 

So instead of refunding me the money that they owe me, they want to give me credit.  At this point, I want nothing to do with Spotify.  I don't want free months, and that is what they keep offering me.  I have never had to work so hard to get money back that was taken from me.  Spotify, admit something went wrong, and fix it.  Why would I keep using your service when you keep trying to take advantage of me?  If you would have just given me the credit I was owed in the first place, I would be singing your praises.

Coming to this forum certainly helped. After I posted here I emailed customer service one more time and finally got a response. So either 3rd time is really a charm or somehow posting in this community sends off some techi smoke signals :) ..Looks like this is happening all over spotify because when you sign up or in through Facebook it's actually adifferent account? or something like that. So you could have hit the Facebook sign up button by mistake or did so intentionally thinking that it would prompt your current account, but thats not the case. Seems it creats a whole new account, ergo (sp?) the double billing...anyways they kindly fixed the problem and when I asked for a credit they kindly credited my account. I, like you, LOVE my Premium account and didnt want to have to let it go (while I LOVE it I will kindly leave ANY service that doesnt respect their customers) so I was and AM one HAPPY Camper...hit up customer service one more time and you should get an email back, I'd bet within the same day. I'm back to being a spotify lover and poster gal again (lol) ...I hpe you have the same great experience...:)

Unfortunately this isn't an issue which anyone on the community will be able to help you with, refunds and billing issues all have to go through the customer services team (who you are speaking to I would guess).

I totally understand that.  I am just letting it be know that it is an issue.  Maybe someone else is dealing with this as well, or maybe someone is looking at Spotify to use. 

 

It's really a sad thing.  I did enjoy Spotify when I used it, but the Customer Service does not live up to the product.

I just received an email from them, and they are refunding all of my money.  For those of you that are out there dealing with this, the third time is a charm.

Yes I have a similar problem. I used to pay for it, but I then cancelled my subscription. It still keeps charging me though, and it has for over 2 months. Sometimes they even charged me twice, only paying me for one month. I want my money back, and I just want to actually cancel my subscription, cause right now I'm paying for something I can't even use anyway. Please help

Hey Snuuby,

 

I can only find one account with the email address attached to your community profile.  Could you please contact the support team via this link?

 

They will need any email addresses or usernames that you may have used.  If this does not find an account, they will ask you for your payment details - this will be described in the email case.  Please post your case number in a reply to this thread.

I am having the same issue. I have been double billed since July. I emailed the Spotify Support Team with my issue on October 7th and they have not responded to me. So when I saw the double billing on my debit card again this month I disputed the charges. This is a shame because I really enjoy the service but I am frustrated with the costumer service.

@Nathan1985 - Could you let us know the 8-digit case number # from when you got in touch? It is in the automated email reply. We can ask someone to chase it up for you.

Hi I've been charged twice for the third month.

 

I put in a request with the support team on October 1st, did not receive any reply other than the automated email and have again been charged twice for November. 

I'm ready to dispute the charge if this isn't taken care of soon but I'd rather have this resolved with Spotify. How can I get this fixed? 

 

Thanks!
