Redeeming a Spotify gift card gives you access to a Premium membership instantly. But before you redeem a Spotify gift card, it’s best to learn more about the whole thing.
What is a Spotify gift card?
A Spotify gift card is a prepaid card you can buy in electronic and retail stores. With it, you can redeem time on an individual Premium plan for Spotify, a music streaming service.
It will give you, or whoever you give it to, a month or more of Spotify Premium. You can choose between one, three, six, and twelve-month values inside the Spotify gift card.
How to redeem a Spotify gift card
Redeeming a Spotify gift card takes only a few seconds of your time. The only thing to remember is that you cannot redeem a Spotify gift card on the app of your smartphone.
Open a web browser (phone or computer) and visit “spotify.com/redeem”.
Scratch the film on the back of the gift card covering the PIN. Enter the PIN on the Spotify website, and click the green “Continue” button. It’s really that simple.
To reveal the code, avoid using something too sharp like a pair of scissors or keys. I’d recommend using a coin or card to gently scratch off the PIN cover.
How does Spotify redeem work?
Whoever redeems a Spotify gift card, whether it’s you or someone else you give it to, that person will receive Spotify Premium benefits (on-demand ad-free music and offline listening).
The gift card can be purchased from leading electronic and retail stores in 1, 3, 6, and 12-month values, but is only valid for 12 months from the date of purchase.
Where can you buy Spotify gift cards?
You can buy Spotify gift cards from electronic and retail stores, or you can also buy them from online stores like Amazon and Best Buy, where the gift cards would be delivered via email.
Things to keep in mind with Spotify gift cards
Redeeming a Spotify gift card takes a few seconds of your time. However, there are a few things to remember when redeeming a Spotify gift card. Here are a few things to keep in mind:
1. Once redeemed, the balance is applied immediately
You can’t choose when to use the gift card. Once you redeem the Spotify gift card, the balance is applied immediately to your next Spotify Premium payment.
The gift card starts on your plan’s next payment date or instantly if you’ve upgraded from a free account. You can see your remaining Premium time from your account page under Your plan.
Your payments continue normally after the full gift card amount is spent.
If you want to save the gift card for a later date, don’t redeem it until you are ready. Just keep in mind that Spotify gift cards have a 12-month expiration date from when they were purchased.
2. Spotify gift cards only work on individual Premium plans
You can only use Spotify gift cards to redeem time on an individual Premium plan, either to continue paying for one or upgrade from a free account.
You cannot apply a Spotify gift card on discounted plans for multiple persons which include the Premium Student, Premium Family, Premium Duo, or trial offers.
