How to Get Cheap Spotify Premium While Traveling
Most countries around the world sell Spotify Premium subscriptions for completely different pricing. If you're traveling through the right country, you may find yourself a great deal for up to 6 months of Spotify Premium. As a matter of fact, it might come down to just a tenth of the price you're paying at home. Not to mention, it's very easy to achieve!
First, let's look at the price differences across the world. This is a list of prices for monthly Spotify Premium subscriptions paid in the local currency. Prices and conversions are taken from the same day this post was posted (4 April, 2020), so bare in mind that the cost might look a bit different with time.
You Most Certainly Have to Pay by Cash
Depending on the country you're visiting, you're going to face different ways of paying for your Spotify Premium subscription. This is because your cards country must match the country you're currently visiting.
As an alternative, you can pay using these options:
- Pay at 7-Eleven and other convenient stores. Select your Premium package and for the payment you want to click on your local convenient stores name, preferably the one that is the most convenient for you to reach.. You will receive a code on your email that you show the store clerk. If you pick this alternative you can pay by cash or even using your bank card. Do note that you will pay in the local currency if you choose to pay with your card. You might therefore have to pay a currency conversion fee depending on your bank and situation.
- Pay using Spotify Gift Cards. This alternative is very convenient assuming you can find the cards in the store of the country you're visiting. But, keep in mind that you can only redeem the code on an account registered in the same country you purchased the gift card.
- Pay by topping up your local SIM card. This is, however, assuming you already have a local SIM card. Even if you don't have one yet, it might in fact still be worth to purchase a local SIM card just to purchase your Spotify Premium subscription, especially if you pick the 6 month package. This option isn't available anywhere as it depends on both the country and the phone provider you're using.
The Three Differences from Having Spotify Premium at Home
- Some songs might be unavailable. Depending on the country you're purchasing your Spotify Premium subscription from, you might find that certain songs are not available. For the most part you can ignore this as it's not very common.
- The apps home page will be in the local language. This is not too big of a deal for most people because what's more important are the playlists and the offline-capability. Nevertheless, the display language of the app and the website will be in whatever language you select in your account settings.
- You have to register a new account. This might sound like a huge hassle, but as a matter of fact, it takes just a few minutes to move over your playlists to your new account. If you don't have any important playlists, or if you don't even have a Spotify account already, you won't be bothered by this requirement at all!
