Spotify is a very popular music-streaming service for music fans globally. Spotify internationally has surmounted over 180 million users of both the free and premium platforms.
With Spotify USA, you can discover new music, readymade playlists, podcasts, and more.
You might be thinking that you only have the option to pay for a Spotify Premium plan with a monthly subscription; technically, yes, but there’s a way that you can pay for the service annually, and we’re here to show you how.
You don’t have to pay to use Spotify, and without a subscription, its free version is still a great music service to use, even though its accessible features are limited.
You can listen to any song or album, get access to great playlists still, and can do all of this using a computer, your phone or a tablet.
You can also share your music with friends via messenger, SMS, WhatsApp, Instagram etc. However, you can only listen to songs while in shuffle mode; you can’t play your music directly and might have to listen to other songs first before you get to your chosen one.
To get all the greatest features, however, we recommend hopping onto a premium plan.
A Spotify Premium account levels up your listening experience entirely from Spotify-free.
You can play any song you like instantly without having to shuffle awkwardly through songs that you don’t really want to listen to, and you get higher streaming quality, so you can find the right music for the perfect moment!
Another hugely attractive feature of Spotify Premium is the offline listening aspect. You can download music while you’re connected to Wi-Fi and take your tunes on the road, so you’re not tied down to one place.
Other top-tier features include unlimited skips and access to the week’s latest singles. You can also enjoy Spotify radio; Spotify will recommend songs based on the ‘vibe’ of a song of your choosing; just click on the three-dot icon (on the right side of a song) and press ‘go to radio’.
Or, alternatively, find readymade playlists for the mood that you want to set; you could try searching ‘chill vibe’, or ‘summer day’ in the search bar and discover what music you are recommended.
You can watch music videos in the app itself, although this is only available with select songs.
A Spotify premium account removes restrictions and lets you listen to your playlists and albums wherever and whenever you want.
But which plan is right for you?
There are four tiers of Spotify premium: Individual, Duo, Family, and Student.
They offer different Spotify deals so you can save with discounted or group subscriptions.
They’re priced differently but offer all the same perks, plus some additional features depending on the plan.
Plus, if you need to switch plans at any point, it’s easy to do so through Spotify’s site.
If you want to use Spotify Premium for yourself and you are not a student, the Individual plan is the one for you. You pay $10.99/month using a credit card, debit card or PayPal and access an individual account which lets you download music, check out brand new releases from your favorite artists, you get unlimited skips and ad-free listening - just like other Spotify memberships.
With your Individual plan, Spotify gives you your own personal playlist every week of songs you can’t get enough of, and a playlist of new tracks for you to enjoy.
Signing up with PayPal lets you access a 3-month trial period, after which you pay the usual fee of $10.99/month.
This is a great option for a pair who want to share Spotify Premium; 2 people share one plan. You get an additional feature of a specialised playlist based on both of your listening profiles, so you can enjoy both of your tastes in a unique duo mix.
It’s priced at $14.99/month.
Share Spotify Family Premium with up to six people. Like the Duo plan, you get a perfect collection of all your tastes in one playlist to keep each family member happy; this is updated frequently as your listening experiences grow.
With Spotify Family Premium, you don’t have to worry about young ones; you have the option to block explicit music. You also get a specific ‘Spotify kids’ app which caters to the under-12s.
This plan costs $16.99/month.
If you’re currently a college student, you have exclusive access to discounted music with Spotify Premium. This plan costs only $5.99/month and will give you all the perks of the other Premium accounts.
It helps you save your money (if you’re strapped for little cash), so you can still afford to feed yourself and not have to sacrifice your favorite music.
Technically, there’s no way to pay for a Spotify Premium year subscription. However, what you can do is buy a year subscription Spotify gift card.
You can buy this gift card for $99 on Amazon or BJs. To then redeem this, follow the steps below:
Sign in to your Spotify account on the website;
Click on the profile icon; it’s found at the top right corner;
Go to your account;
Scroll down to ‘redeem’;
Enter your premium code from the gift card and your postal code;
Click ‘redeem code’ to confirm this.
This will make the perfect Christmas gift for a family member!
So that’s how to pay for a year’s subscription to your Premium Spotify account.
