For subscribers that dont have a lapse in their subscriptions - an incentive could be that every year you get 10% of your subscription price up to 50% off after 5 years of continuous membership!

Thanks for coming to the Community, and adding your vote to this idea!
We're keeping this idea to 'Not Right Now', as this isn't something we have any immediate plans to implement. We appreciate you sharing your thoughts.
As always, keep an eye on our Spotify Blog for announcements about other discounts and offers you can use with your Spotify account.
If we do have any new info to share, rest assured we'll check back in here with a new status.
Marked as new idea.
would be worthwhile definitely.
Hey Blake and crematedman,
I like the idea.
Do I think it will work? Probably not. In my mind, it is impractical for Spotify at this time to give money away due to their fast world wide expansion and debt level. They also happen to have more free listeners than paying subscribers - no real income there. I am not sure what their advertisers pay because I am a subscribed customer.
Startups can take awhile. If you look at Spotify's financial information you will understand that they are walking the fine line. The CEO on down are more interested in investors opinions.
Our piddly subscriptions are the proverbial drop in the bucket, and probably would not support them for a week. (Timeline is a guess!) Spotify does not notice nor recogognize thier customers requests see: explicit button and parental control threads. Close to 7 thousand requests over a four year and counting time period and only recently has the tread been acknowledged.
Good luck with your request. I would rather have a playlist promoted instead!
recognize not recogognize!
This is a good point. Now I don't think either that Spotify may give us 50% off of subscription, its unfair to the effort of artists and Spotify.
Now I do believe we (long time subscribers) should get at least every once in a while a discount or whatever.
The reason is, new subscribers get amazing deals. And this is even being abused by somepeople creating new accounts every time their 3 months ends. I find this very annoying, I get to see people enjoying and abusing of the 3 months of Spotify premium while I'm paying the normal fee.
I really hope Spotify does something about this good idea.
I'm happy to be paying the amount of money that I am, and I wouldn't want artists being paid any less for their music.
To help prevent users from resubscribing every three months, perhaps features could be unlocked at certain time intervals? E.g. at the 6 month mark, you can store more songs locally, at 1 year you can get access to some exclusive content etc.
The suggestion came from going over a very tight budget. I know to most people $10 a month doesnt seem like a lot but its more than i can afford.
I listen to the free version of spotify 5 days a week at work and the ads dont bother me one bit. I am thankful that the vast selection of music is offered for free with what i'd consider minimal ads. I live in northern minnesota and there are many places that don't have cell phone service-and those are places with some of the best fishing. If Spotify offered a $5/mo option of being able to save a certain amount of songs for offline listening while still running ads, id be all over it.
Unless a cheaper subscription price is offered in some way....i will just be another freeloader with "ad listening" being my only contribution to the artists.
It would be nice to listen to some music that i want (instead of the radio) this time of year while im out trying to catch some fish and its almost 50 degrees colder than when water freezes!
50% would be great but kind of sure that'll never happen.I would on the other hand greatly appreciate to get a month or two for free now and then. Got an e-mail a few weeks ago with "Get premium and get 3 months for free" but I sadly realized that it only was for new members.For me that has been with them for almost 10 years, there was nothing and have never been...
Not sure on the discount amounts either, but it would be a cool thing thing in general for some kind of nod to loyal subscribers. Plus, this money goes to content creators, so, personally, I'd rather there was some kind of middle ground. Like, every 12 months of subscriptions get a discounted month or something. It could even be awesome to accompany it with some personal stats if a reduction wasn't possible. Spotify is awesome but Apple and Google (who are bigger fishes in the sea for other things) are trying their best to get their hands on more of the pie and Spotify giving incentives to loyal users would go a long way.
