[Subscription] Discounts for People on SNAP Benefits

Here’s an idea for Spotify: Many people require food stamps (now called SNAP) to help them through a difficult period of unemployment or under employment. For some like myself, this occurs as the result of a health crisis that prevented me from working for nearly a year. It would be great if Spotify would offer the student rate to individuals who are on SNAP. Individuals could qualify by submitting a photo of their SNAP benefit card. I suggested this in correspondence with Spotify after a special rate I was getting was about to expire. Spotify asked me to post it here. Please support this idea. (Most of us are not free loaders, we are doing the best we can under difficult circumstances. Our commercial free music brings us peace and comfort.

Amazon offers a $5.99/month rate for a prime membership to people who recieve SNAP or Medicaid benefits. I agree that there should be a discounted membership for Spotify. People fall on hard times, people have mental and physical disabilities that prevent them from working on a regular basis. Music can be a great therapy for people.
