I think its a brilliant proposal to spotify management to reduce the premium price to £5 a month after constant subscription for 6 months or maybe 9 months of the £10 premium. This would bring in much much more premium subscribers and therefore create much more profit for the company, also as the numbers of people finding out about spotify is increasing, naturally, it can only stand to serve more people and get more and more popular. 

I really like spotify and i am a new customer on a three month trial run and so far i think its good.

3.5/5 stars i rate it,   ...i would rate 5/5 if the premium price was more affordable(for vast majority of people interested in using)for what your getting considering that not every song is available and you cannot perminately store the songs also sometimes the songs will not play on offline mode or stop half way, which is very stressful.

        Though the quality is excellent this is the main reason why i am a fan and now recomend spotify to everyone.

I dont think i will continue to keep the premium at £9.99 per month though i will at certain times of the year renew the premium payment for speacial times like holidays and such.

Though if continuous premium customers where allowed a 50% discount after say 6 months i would reconsider and i would keep permanent subscription!!

Loyalty discounts are awesome. Cell phone companies do it and that's one of the reasons I stick with my provider to this day. I think the same thing would be great for Spotify.

I like the sentiment behind this suggestion, but I absolutely agree with others in the thread that a 50% discount is way way more than I could see them offering (and I'm not sure if I'd really want it, because as others have also said, a good chunk of that money goes to the artists for their great music). I do like the call for something between the full subscription level and the fully free level, as I know a lot of people who would love to subscribe for various functions of the service, but they can't afford the $10 a month. (Arguably, I probably can't either, but I manage to squeeze it in because music helps keep me sane, but I'm lucky to be able to make that call.) Another option might be to let customers get a small discount if they pay for say six months or a year at a time? A lot of companies do this (Pandora used to, my web host does this), so there is some merit to it.

Working towards a free account is a better idea than a decrease in monthly subscription cost. I'm ashamed to say, I didn't even think about the artists that are getting paid off of subscription costs. It's more fun to work towards that free account anyway.

No thanks! I'd happily pay Spotify more. It's cheap as chips at the moment.

$10 a month is not expensive. Heck, you can get a family subscription for $15 a month. This service is exactly where it needs to be price wise. Id even pay 20 a month if it had more functionality in the interface.

Saving $5 a month will put another $1000 in my son's college account. The price of things are relevent to each persons situation. Priorities dictate what is expensive and inexpensive.

Life is always relative. I remember when I was in audio school a teacher of mine said that Spotify was annoying because they weren't thinking about music. I always thought he was wrong. I think he just didn't understand that Spotify is the new face of the music industry. I'm sure Spotify always thinks about music, much like I do. It's tough to start from nowhere but no one knows what the future holds. It's all about taking well calculated risks. Play your cards right and come out on top.
