That’s cool! The discounted rate will automatically begin on your next billing date. You can check the status of your subscription at any time.
Note: If you subscribed through any other company than Spotify (e.g. with your internet/mobile provider or iTunes), you need to cancel your existing subscription with them before signing up.
12 months at a time, with the option to renew when that time elapses. You can renew a maximum of 3 times as long as you’re eligible (so the deal can cover a total of 4 years). We’ll remind you when it's time to renew!
If you don’t renew, or you’ve exceeded the 4-year limit, payments will proceed at the standard Premium rate.
You can pay for Spotify in lots of ways. Check the payment methods available in your country by clicking Subscription in the menu on the left of your account page.
Note: It’s currently not possible to pay for the student discount with PayPal or with a Spotify gift card.
You can't apply additional discounts to a Student plan. This includes any trial offers, and Premium for Family.
You can! If you’re enrolled with a university that’s eligible for our Student discount, you can take advantage even if you’re abroad.
Your account’s country settings need to match the country of your university, and your payment method needs to have also been issued in that same country. For help with this, check out our guide to country settings.
We use the good folks at SheerID to verify your student credentials, so if you’re having trouble signing up you can get in touch with them.
If we’re unable to verify your student I.D., you won’t be eligible to claim the student discount. In this instance, any charges will show on your statement as ‘pending’, meaning no money has actually been taken.
Once the bank receives the confirmation that your student I.D. failed to verify, the ‘pending’ charge will be refunded. This can take up to 48 hours, depending on your bank. You can reach out to them for more information.
Otherwise, try logging out and back in. Occasionally this is needed to force a sync of info between your device and our account system.
It’s also worth checking you’re logged into the right account.

No. You are entitled to only one account with the student discount at a time, and that discount lasts for 12 months even if you cancel the subscription or close the account.
If you want to apply your student discount to another account, you need to wait until 12 months have elapsed since you first signed up for it on your current account.
