Spotify logo50% off Spotify Premium for studentsStudent discount via Unidays & NUS Extra

Ongoing

For many, streaming is the preferred way to listen to music. There are plenty of free music streaming services, and if you don't mind putting up with ads then you can't beat the price. But if you want the full ad-free service you'll need to stump up for it.

Spotify Premium lets you listen ad-free, save offline tracks, play any track in the order you want and listen in higher-quality audio, and its student discount gives 50% off, making it £4.99/mth. Use up any new customer promos first though to maximise value – eg, Spotify Premium newbies can currently get a 30-day trial for free.

How do I get the discount?

You can sign up to the deal via your Unidays or NUS Extra account – log in and follow the instructions through to the Spotify website. If you already have a premium account, the discount will apply from the beginning of the next month.

You initially get the promotional price for 12 months, though if you want to extend it you can do so before it the discount period ends, as long as you're still a student at the time (so you could extend it by another year just before you graduate). Otherwise you'll be charged full price unless you cancel your premium subscription.

One other thing to note – you can't pay for a discounted subscription using a Spotify gift card, so you'd pay the full £9.99/mth price tag if you tried to redeem one under the student offer.

Spotify logoSpotify: MoneySaving tips & tricksIncluding free trial & £14.99 Family membership

Ongoing

Spotify is free to use on desktop computers, as long as you don't mind listening to adverts.

However, if you want to save money on Spotify Premium (normally £9.99 a month), so you can listen without ads and on mobile devices, here are some tips and tricks:

  • Spotify Premium free trial. If you're new to Spotify, you can take advantage of a free 30-day trial of Spotify Premium. After your trial, if you want to upgrade from the free version of Spotify to paid Premium membership (£9.99 a month), there's normally an introductory offer available such as 'three months for 99p'. These change frequently, but it's definitely worth checking.

  • Family membership. If multiple people in your household use Spotify Premium, but you don't all want to share one account, it's cheaper to upgrade to a Family subscription (£14.99 a month) than to each pay £9.99 individually. In theory, it's worth up to £60 a month as a maximum of six people can share a Spotify Premium for Family membership.
     
  • Alternatives to Spotify. If you're not committed to using Spotify, there are several alternatives for streaming music such as Deezer, Google Play and Apple Music.

Section 75

Free protection for all shopping!

There's a little-known piece of legislation that turns any credit card into a financial self-defence superhero. 'Section 75' of the Consumer Credit Act means your plastic must protect anything you buy for more than £100 for free, so if there's a problem or the company goes bust, you can still get your money back.

And although Section 75 doesn't apply to debit cards, there is something else to fall back on if you've paid using a debit card, or used a credit card for a purchase under £100. Known as Chargeback, this is part of banks' and card companies' internal rules and not a legal requirement. Read full details of Section 75 or Chargeback, plus how to claim, in our guides.
