New Spotify subscribers get 3 months of Premium music streaming for $0.99 overall

New Spotify subscribers get 3 months of Premium music streaming for $0.99 overall
With a whopping 100 million paying subscribers under its belt, Spotify is unlikely to be worried about rival music streaming platforms from Pandora or Amazon, which have been frequently treating new users to killer introductory deals of late to try to catch up to the global market leader. But you can never be too careful when it comes to the competition in such a crowded industry, especially given the impressive growth rate also reported by Apple Music in the past few years.

Enter a top-notch new offer for Spotify Premium users who have never tried the service before, including all the usual perks and benefits at a highly unusual $0.99 price. That will cover a full three months of unlimited, on-demand music streaming with no ad interruptions, high quality audio functionality, and offline listening support as long as you sign up by June 30.

Once your promotional period is up, you will be charged the typical $9.99 a month to continue using the Premium service, although you can cancel your subscription at any time and go back to the free tier with shuffle play-only support or try out a different platform. The terms and conditions of the new deal are relatively straightforward, and if the whole thing sounds familiar, that's probably because Spotify has been running similar sales before (most recently, around six months ago).

Just like back then, the extended 90-day trial promotion excludes previous Unlimited subscribers, as well as folks who've already taken advantage of 30 or 60-day free trial offers. On the bright side, Engadget reports those who canceled their Spotify Premium service before April 15 are eligible for three months of unlimited access in exchange for $10 overall.

Last but not least, students have until June 30 to claim three months of Spotify Premium, as well as Hulu and Showtime, at a measly $0.99 total, followed by the same amazing bundle available for $4.99 each month. Apple Music obviously can't touch these deals.
