[Subscription] International Student Discount (via ISIC)

Spotify currently have student discount in the UK and US, which entitles students to 50% off the cost of Spotify Premium. As a UK student, this is great for me but I feel it is a little unfair on students in all of the other countries which have Spotify. There are plenty of ideas about bringing student discount to loads of different countries, but I don't get why Spotify doesn't take the easy route and partner with ISIC.

 

For anyone who doesn't know about International Student Identification Card:

Lots of other big companies already use ISIC to verify student status in 133 countries!:

 

So Spotify, what do you say!?

Great idea! That would be a good way to validate students and the discount could be easily offered worldwide. 

 

I really can't see why the discount is only available in the US and UK. I hope this idea will get some attention by the Spotify team. There are students in other countries, too. :'D

Don´t you think that as a student you could sacrifice 2 or 3 beers per month in order to have Spotify Premium? Plus I would assume that a lot of premium users (if not a majority) are students, therefore it doesn´t make much sense for Spotify to do that.

I honestly don't have an isic card. I like the way spotify verifies the discount right now.

singapore does have the discount but not on all level ; the last time I saw the Promo is during a Polytechic/ College Open House (about a year ago) here . I do wish there's a way to do that... forking out bout SGD 10 /mth aint fun when the cost of living is too darn high here....
