I live in the UK, but I'm currently studying a degree with a US university via distance learning.
I was able to get the student discount for Apple Music using SheerID fine, but for some reason it doesn't work with Spotify.
When I go to https://www.spotify.com/uk/student/verification/ , the dropdown list of countries doesn't include the US so I can't select my university. And when I try to verify via https://spotify.sheerid.com I get a message saying 'we have successfully confirmed your status!' but then an error message when I get redirected back to Spotify.
Then I saw this post on the help section: https://support.spotify.com/uk/account_payment_help/subscription_options/student-discount/ - which says that if you're studying abroad your account country should match your university's country. So does this mean that I have to change my account country to the USA and then it'll work?
I'm happy with apple music's student plan for now but I'd prefer to be back with Spotify to be honest, I just don't want to pay so much more for it!
