QUICK ANSWER 

To use a Spotify gift card, head over to spotify.com/redeem on your desktop or mobile browser. Enter the PIN on the back of your Spotify gift card or the code from your receipt. Click Redeem.

Where to buy Spotify gift cards

If you are looking into purchasing a Spotify gift card for somebody else, you’re in luck! According to the Spotify website, Spotify gift cards can be bought from “many leading electronic and retail stores.”

You can find Spotify gift cards at grocery stores, electronics stores, convenience stores, and many other retail stores. You can also buy them online at sites like Amazon. So, finding a physical Spotify gift card in your area shouldn’t be too difficult.

However, if you live in remote areas where it may be difficult to find them, you always have the option of digital Spotify gift cards or “eGift cards.” One example would be Paypal’s Spotify gift card site. To our knowledge, these work the same, and the recipient will receive a code that they can redeem like a physical gift card.

What can a Spotify gift card be used for?

If you’ve never used them before, Spotify gift cards can only be used for Spotify Premium Individual plans. This means you cannot use a Spotify gift card on a Premium Student, Premium Duo, or Premium Family plan. Additionally, they do not factor into trial offers.

Redeeming a Spotify gift card works the same way on mobile and desktop. The account redeeming the card must have regional settings that match where the gift card was purchased.

  • Open a browser on either your mobile device or desktop computer.
  • Go to spotify.com/redeem.
  • If you haven’t done so already, scratch off the coating on your Spotify gift card to reveal the PIN beneath. Enter your PIN on the website.
  • Select Redeem.

If you have trouble redeeming your gift card, you can contact Spotify customer support for help.
