How to pay for Premium with iTunes gift card

I've been a Spotify Premium customer for a few months now, and I've always done my payments through a PayPal account. However, I have a few extra iTunes gift cards laying around that I can use as App store credit on my iPhone. Is there any way I could pay for 2 or 3 months of Premium ahead of time using up that App store credit? I'm also aware paying through the app store is 13$ or so because of Apple's fees, but I still have nearly 50$ of iTunes gift cards that would otherwise be going to waste. Thanks ahead of time for any replies!

Hey,@Et12272

 

As @MattSuda previously said,

 

Right now subscriptions can not be purchased through the iOS app (via iTunes)

In the past during Spotify's introduction offer, users would accidentally subscribe through the app instead of the website causing a lot of confusion. This decision was made to make the offer go more smoothly. Sorry for the inconvenience.

You can still subscribe to premium via http://spotify.com/premium

Tweet from Spotify support on Twitter:

"During our Intro Offer, in-app purchases are not available. Get started with Premium at http://spoti.fi/1qSoQB4"

Hey there @tania_n123, thanks for reaching out!

You need a recurring payment method, like a credit card or PayPal, in order to get the promotional offer so the gift card shouldn't be eligible as a method :)

Hope this helped!

Hey @warlock315

 

Unfortunately you cannot pay in advance with iTunes, you will have to subscribe via iTunes and pay ever month with the credit on the iTunes account :)

 

I hope this helped! :)
