Get three months of Spotify premium for less than a buck

Get three months of Spotify premium for less than a buck
If the only thing keeping you from becoming a Spotify premium member is the $9.99 a month charge, we have some good news for you this  morning. Spotify is offering three months of its premium service for just 99 cents. Normally, that would cost you $29.97. Spotify is offering this promotion through the end of this year. Once the ball drops in Times Square, you're SOL.

Spotify premium allows you to listen to ad-free music. And since it allows you to listen while off-line, you can be inside a lead-lined elevator that Superman can't see through, or inside a NYC subway car and still listen to your music. The service allows you to search for any song, and the tunes supposedly sound 3 times better than when you hear them on the ad-supported version of Spotify.

The vast majority of Spotify subscribers use the free ad-supported tier, and the music streamer is hoping that it can get a number of them to migrate to the paid version. There was talk earlier this year about Spotify eliminating the free tier and replacing it with a three-month free trial like Apple Music offers, but so far there hasn't been any more talk about Spotify making such a change.

Yet again the negativity towards other company being number 1 except fruity is seen in this article. So so used to.

Then again, the income ratio of your country could be a lot lower than US.

I'm a paid user and I can tell you that spotify is just great. It changes the way you listen to music... you'll listen to everything you want, whenever you want, and when you want to listen to something new you'll find thousands of new songs or albums immediately available, so my advice is... just try it, you'll discover that, if you can afford to pay $10/eur10/£10 per month and you like music, it's totally worth it.

I don't know why I would use this over Google Play Music that does exactly the same thing and especially now that I have a family plan that saves you someone from $5-45

I have Spotify and I tried the 6 months free trial for Google Play Music and I instantly went back to Spotify after 1 month. The most essential thing to me Google Play Music lacks is Connect (which is basically start a song where you left off on another device or control the music playing on one device from Spotify app on another), other things include more underground/unpopular music being on Spotify as opposed to Google Play Music, and I think the UI on Spotify offers a more pleasant experience. I think Spotify cares more about music and what the customers want as opposed to Google or Apple who just want the to make their preferred platforms a more appealing offer to users but not to music lovers. I've found more new songs I loved on Spotify in 1 week than I did on GPM or Apple Music in one month.

Spotify Connect is the s**t!!! It's completely badass to have music playing on my commute home and walking into my room and continuing that exact song on my PS4 while I play Driveclub and other PS4 games :D

Considering 1/3 of the country lives in the poverty line and another 1/3 near the poverty line I think their last worry is western music and spotify.
