Thank you for your response. I considered doing a gift card, however... I'd like to sign up for the current Premium offer to take advantage of the 3 months at .99 and 9.99 each month thereafter. It looks like I can't do that with a gift card? What is the best way to achieve this? Here is my situation. My daughter currently has an account and uses free Spotify, I'd like to be able to sign her up for Premium without her knowing (as a gift for Christmas), it would be on her iPhone. Do I need to make a new account, and if so will this mean she will have to delete her current account?
Re: How do I give Premium as a gift to someone else?
Unfortunately, you can't 'gift' promotions, as the promotions rely on certain criteria. A possible solution: you could 'borrow' her account and claim the promotion @ https://www.spotify.com/premium under her account (provided she has never upgraded to Premium before).
Help's arrived. Right now the only way to gift Spotify Premium to someone is to buy them a Spotify Gift Card. You can get these in some retailers, and depending on your country, they may also be available through Amazon.
Let me know if you need a hand with anything else; I'm always here for you.
