Hey @Alisa91,

 

Thanks for sharing those screenshots with me!

Yes, since the student discount trial offer is only available for people who haven't tried Premium in the past, you won't be able to use another trial on Premium for Students.

 

There is some more info on Premium trials here.

I hope this helps 🙂

Hey @Alisa91, thanks for reaching out to the Community!

Help's here.

Have you tried Premium in the past (the individual Premium subscription, Premium for Family or Premium for Students), or have you used your payment method on any of Spotify's services?

 

Keep me updated 🙂

Hi @Billy-J, thanks for your reply! That's not something I can remember I'm afraid; the last time I even logged in to spotify was over a year ago 😕

Thanks @Billy-J!

I'm not sure if the usernam also constitutes as sensitive, but i've blacked this out just in case.

Oh dear - i see a 99p payment in June last year. Is this why it's not giving me the student offer?

Hey there @Mal_ge,

 

Thanks for jumping in here with a screenshot! 

 

Keep in mind that when purchasing a subscription which is already at a discounted price, it's not compatible with other discount offers. For example Premium Family or a bundle with Headspace. When you subscribe for a bundle like Premium Student and Headspace, it's not possible to get a free trial with that. That's why you were charged the full bundle price.

 

Hope this sheds light on the subject 🙂
