spert Spotify Just Gave Every U.S. College Student a 50% Discount

Spotify halved the price of Premium subscription for U.S. college students. The streaming giant brought their usual $9.99/month price tag down to $4.99, and you can redeem the discount right here. Brits in university have had access to the student discount since 2012.

It’s part of a push by Spotify to reach 40 million subscribers. Whether those numbers will ease concerns over Spotify’s payout model, however, remains to be seen. If you’re interested, Nathan had some thoughts on the matter:

Thom Yorke also got pretty fired up about the whole thing (around the 18:00 mark).
