Giftcard disabled student discount

Giftcard disabled student discount



Premium as of now (but I typically have the student discount for premium ) 



My Question or Issue

 I recieved a giftcard from someone and applied it to my account, not knowing that it wouldn't be applied to my current student discount plan... I realized today that I am unable to access the other features such as Hulu and Showtime that came with the student plan and I am unable to change the subscription until it renews on 3/19/2019. I was wondering if I could somehow renew my student discount subscription so I can get those features back without waiting until 3/19.

Hey @ghosttrash, and welcome to the community.

Hope you're doing great! 


The reason this happened is that Gift Cards aren't used to pay for Premium for Students or Premium for Family. 


Because of that, you'll have to wait until 3/19 to rejoin. On that date - you can also reply back here to let me know if any issues occur when switching back.


Have a nice day 🙂
