Spotify Offers 50% Student Discount

spotify $"Please give me money. Some money. Any money." Getting people to pay for music is not getting any easier. Spotify's latest effort to turn free users in to paid offers ad-free premium service for $4.99 - 50% off its regular $9.99 fee.  Traditionally, student users, many of whom are cash strapped and tech savvy, have been particularly difficult to monetize. 

The music streamer is using SheerID to verify eleigibilty. 

This new offering allows students to get Premium at half the price and:

  • Play more than 20 million songs with no ads
  • Access Spotify online, via mobile, on a tablet, or through a home entertainment system
  • Download favorite playlists and listen offline
  • Better sound quality
