Would like to know this as well!
Thanks for stopping by the Spotify Community
All you need to do is go to
Does this work even if I already have a premium account?
Yes it will work
"Can I get the student discount if I’m on Premium already?
Yep! All you need to do is sign up at www.spotify.com/student and the discounted rate will automatically begin on your next billing date."
thanks for your reply! But when I click on that, I get redirected to the sign up page to create a new spotify premium account..
Or do I need to fill out my credit card details again and then the subscribtion will change?
No need to create a new account. Just head over at spotify.com/student and re-enter your payment details 🙂
Your account will switch over to the discounted price on the next billing date.
Is there any way to change to the student discount without having to use a credit card? I now pay my premium through iDeal and I don't have a credit card, but it says that's the only payment option...
Yeah, I want to know that as well 🙂
I found this tweet: https://twitter.com/SpotifyCares/status/854605304566296576
"PayPal and iDeal aren't currently an available payment method for the discount. We'll be happy to pass your feedback on"
Spotify has posted this article here and it says that it will show all of the available payment methods when it asks for a payment:
Payment methods vary by country and some payment methods might not be available with all subscription types (family, student, etc).
Since the student discount just launched in more countries, it could be that credit card is the only option right now for those countries and could expand to more options in the future. There have been other users posting here that the only option it gives them is credit card. So I'm not really sure there is not much information on this yet. It's still very new.
Thanks for your help!
Now I have the next problem: SheerID needs to verify my student status, but it doesn't redirect me to their page.. What now?
Hey again Sahne,
Can you try signing up using a different browser or an incognito window? Please also make sure pop-ups are enabled. Clearing your internet browsing history would greatly help, too.
Let me know if you continue to have any issues.
Im a student at the HAN (hogeschool of arnhem and nijmegen) SheerID tells me im not eligible.
