Spotify support appears to be completely helpless to resolve this issue. The process is broken, hundreds of people do not see the discount in their Google cart, and Spotify support has been helpless to fix it in several weeks. Here is what I receive today after going back and forth 6 times.

Thanks for posting about this on the Community and for your patience on the matter.
Spotify is aware of the issue regarding being charged full price for the Google Home Mini offer for Premium for Family subscribers, and the relevant team is currently working on a fix for it. We hope to have this resolved soon!
We will keep you posted on this as soon as we have more information.

I have gone through every suggestion and link provided and none of them work. I get the same windows to choose the color and when I check out. I am still being charged the full price at check-out. Is there something else we can do? Can a different promo code be provided?
Thank you . Please let us know. I know this is still being worked on but I never received any follow up after my 2 hour conversation with Spotify and google support last week. I’m glad I found this site though. Hope you guys can get it resolved in time for the holidays.
It says your issue was solved but I still have not heard from spotify. I signed up for a family plan and was told I was going to get a google home mini. I did buy the google home mini for free successfully then google canceled my order. Now if I go in and try to buy it through the email again it wants to charge full price. This problem is not solved. I have waited over a week for spotify to figure this out. I want my home mini or I will cancel this service.
Just tried again and it's still happening. I also tried manually entering the code that's actually in the URL and it tells me it's already been used, so the issue is definitely Google mistaking the code as being used already. The promo ends soon and if it's not fixed, then I really hope we get some sort of compensation.
