While a lot of streaming services offer discounts for students, Spotify‘s, which combines movies, TV, and music, might be the sweetest. When you sign up for a Spotify Premium account, the music service is offering an even bigger bargain bundle with Hulu and Showtime subscriptions, offering the entire bundle costs $4.99 per month. All you have to do is be in school.
Unfortunately for the average pop culture fiend, this deal is only available to college or university students. Along with 50 percent off the $9.99 monthly cost of Spotify Premium, students also get free Hulu and Showtime subscriptions. That means they can download music ad-free and select tunes on-demand with Spotify Premium, AND watch shows like Rick and Morty on Hulu or Yellowjackets on Showtime. All for just $4.99 a month after a 30 day free trial.
Here’s all the info you need to get this sweet bundle:
What is the Spotify Premium Student plan and what does it include?
The Spotify Premium Student plan is the same as a Spotify Premium account, which is completely ad-free on both the mobile app and the computer. Spotify Premium allows you to download music as well, so you can listen without using valuable data, and it affords unlimited skips along with the ability to play or queue any song at any time. The plan also includes complimentary subscriptions to Showtime and the ad-based version of Hulu.
How do I sign up for a Spotify Premium Student account?
Head to the Spotify Premium Student page and select “Get Started.” Once you’ve created an account and entered your payment details, Spotify will verify your enrollment status as a student using SheerID. If your school isn’t listed, or you’re asked to upload a document, SheerID offers common troubleshooting support for the Spotify plan. Once set up, you’ll be able to access all the Premium features.
How much does the Spotify Premium Student plan cost and is there a discount?
The Spotify Premium Student plan costs $4.99 per month, with the first month free. That’s $5 discount from the regular Premium subscription, though there’s no difference between the features. You can choose to cancel at any time.
How do I activate Hulu and Showtime with my Spotify Premium Student account?
To activate your Hulu account, you’ll need to head to your Account Page on Spotify. Under Account Overview, select “Activate Hulu.” You can either create a new Hulu account, or link the deal to a pre-existing Hulu account. Unfortunately, you can’t upgrade to any ad-free or live TV plans with this deal.
You can begin your Showtime subscription via Showtime’s Spotify activation page. You can either create a new Showtime account, or link one to an already existing account. After you activate your account, you’ll be able to access Showtime’s full library of films and television.
You’ll then be billed through Spotify, not the streaming services.
Can I get this bundle if I’m not a student?
Unfortunately, no. Spotify has offered bundles for Hulu and regular Spotify Premium in the past, but at the moment, this deal is only for students.
How long does this bundle last?
Once activated, this deal lasts for four years. Each year, Spotify asks members to re-validate their enrollment status using SheerID. They’ll send you an email about it when it’s time. Be sure to validate, otherwise you’ll be charged the normal $9.99.
