If you've already received a message from SheerID confirming your student status, but you're having difficulties activating the discount, we first recommend trying to open the link from that message in an incognito or private window, preferably on a desktop device.

 

In case that doesn't do the trick and you’re still getting an error message, check out the info below for what to do next.

 

"You've already redeemed this offer"

Spoiler

What does it mean?

  • Your SheerID activation link has expired.

OR

  • Your verification status at SheerID is pending.

OR

  • You’re trying to renew your student discount, while your existing discount is still active.

 

What should I do?

"The verification code you have entered has already been redeemed"

Spoiler

What does it mean?

Your SheerID activation link has expired.

 

What should I do?

  1. Reach out to SheerID and ask for your requestID
  2. Paste the requestID in this link: https://www.spotify.com/student/apply/sheerid-international/?requestId=[Insert requestID here]
  3. Try redeeming the offer again by opening the link.

"Oops something went wrong"

Spoiler

What does it mean?

  • Country miss-match, meaning the country on your profile isn’t matching the country your university/college is based in.

OR

  • You haven't selected the right country code when adding a phone number.

OR

  • Your SheerID activation link has expired. 

 

What should I do?

"Your student credentials are already associated with another Spotify account"

Spoiler

What does it mean?

The activation link has expired or the student discount is already linked to another account.
