I listen to Spotify both on my way to the office and while working. As I enter the office, my phone (Android) plays one of those "listen to this ad to receive 30 mins of ad-free listening". Only a minute later, I sit down to work, flip open my macbook, and change spotify to play from it instead of my phone. One song plays and then I get ads, and it's not even 5 minutes into the ad-free half-hour.
It's the same account, I'm not behind a vpn on either device, i've only changed which device it's playing from, so not sure what the issue is.

Unfortunately, the 30 min of ad-free listening doesn't carry over when you switch playback to another device. Apologies for any confusion caused - We'll make sure to pass on your feedback to the right team.
