Spotify is absolutely phenomenal. It’s one of the largest online streaming services in the world and it certainly deserves the reputation it has built over the years. And despite the bits of controversy that crop up at times, it’s still great — I use it daily.
What’s nice about Spotify is that it’s 100% free if you want it to be. You actually get a lot of useful features even if you never pay a cent. However, there are a few features that are hidden behind Spotify Premium that you may like.
Fortunately, Spotify has a limited-time offer that you can use to get a taste of Premium’s features [No Longer Available]. This offer is only for residents of the U.S. and Canada. Apologies to those who live elsewhere!
If you sign up for Spotify Premium between now and May 15th, you’ll get 3 months of it for free! Once the 3 months are up, you’ll be charged $9.99 per month to continue the Premium subscription, so be sure to cancel it before the promotion runs out.
This will only work on Spotify accounts that have never had Premium before. In other words, new users only! However, if you’ve tried the 7-day Premium trial in the past, you are still eligible for this promotion.
What do you get with Premium?
- Absolutely no ads.
- Download music for offline playback.
- No more shuffle-only playback on mobile devices.
- Access to audio at higher bitrates (better quality).
Once you’ve redeemed the offer, check out our complete guide to Spotify to get started on the right foot.
