[Subscription] Student Discount in Quebec

Status: Case Closed

Hi everyone,

 

I woke up this morning to Spotify's Student Discount email, which made me glad.., until I found out that it's not available in Quebec. As the voice of all Quebeckers, I would like to address Spotify's Team to make it available in Quebec too. We're a part of Canada as much as the rest of the provinces.

 

Thank you,

Hey everyone,

 

Thanks for coming to the Spotify Idea Exchange.

 

We've been looking into this idea but due to circumstances outside our control, Spotify is not currently able to offer Spotify Premium for Students in Quebec. As it is stated in our guidelines, we cannot influence subscription, price or product changes at this point.

 

If we do have any new information to share, rest assured we'll check back in here with a new status.

 

Thank you for your understanding!

Marked as a new idea and edited the title slightly to make it easier to find via search 🙂

I totally agree with the idea! What kind of restrictions make the offer unavailable here??

 @lasnierfelix This is written right under the green button on the Spotify Canada Student Discount website: "Spotify Student Discount Offer Terms and Conditions apply. Due to restrictions, this offer is unavailable in Quebec."

@ImparatorFatih, this is exactly what I am referring to.. What restrictions though ; legal, administrative, .. ? If only they specified a bit more on the website, which  I think they could, I don't think we would be having this conversation 😉 That's all I'm saying 🙂

I couldn't agree more. What kind of restricitions are applicable in that case? We are still canadian students after all !! 🙂

Hey everyone. Unfortunately, due to circumstances outside our control, Spotify is not currently able to offer Spotify Premium for Students in Quebec. We hope to be able to make it available in the future. Thanks for your understanding!

@meahtenoha, thank you for repeating us what we already know ; can we not know what those circumstances are? The government won't let you charge us 5$ less on our subscription? Spotify USA doesn't like french canadians? An obscure law is restricting you?

@ImparatorFatih @Granturismoo @clarea Am I the crazy one or does it seem shady??

ImparatorFatih

@lasnierfelix I'm on the same boat as you. I really wonder what are those said "circumstances" that makes it unavailable in Quebec for some "reasons". @meahtenoha May you share them with us if you're allowed?

They don't even consider Quebec as a part of North America
