Spotify discounts Premium service to $0.99 for a limited time

The offer is only available until December 31st, 2017, to users who have never tried Premium before

    Looks like a response to Amazon Prime music coming online in Canada.

      Not really since Amazon Prime Music doesn’t technically compete in the same space. It only offers 2 million songs whereas Spotify, Deezer, Apple Music, Google Play Music and etc. offer way more. Amazon Music Unlimited which doesn’t exist in Canada would be the direct Spotify competitor.

      This promo is likely reacting to the offer that Deezer has been doing lately to woo prospective paid subscribers. Both Apple Music & Google Play Music have better offers as Apple offers 3 months free & Google is offering 4 months free. Both better than requiring users to pay $1 (which I know is like nothing but still…)

    I just got an e-mail from Spotify saying it is $9.99 for 3 months not $0.99 ??

    • dirtyKIMCHI

      That’s due to previously using Premium.

    If I can try it for $0.99 for 3 months and cancel, I’d be interested. Don’t want t lock in for a year off the bat though

      You can, no contracts on spotify

    • Garrett Cooper

      Went online and saw just that. Signed up a couple days ago to try it out.

    I wonder if they’ll be paying artists any less during this period or if they’re just happy to lose even more money than usual.

  • so groove music pass shuts down and this is how they want to try to get me to go to Spotify? give it to me for almost nothing. I dont know if I wana switch. what if I go back to the days I didn’t have a music pass?
