Right now, there’s several ways to enjoy Spotify. One way is to use your PC and listen to as many songs as you want, provided you’re willing to put up with ads. You can also stream songs to your Android device for free, though you are limited to playing in shuffle mode.

For those that want an all-you-can-eat buffet of music on your mobile and your PC without dealing with ads or restrictions, there’s also the option of signing up for a $9.99 monthly subscription. While this price is very much in-line with similar subscription music services, what if you’re looking for an even better deal? If you’re a student at a valid educational institute in the United States, all you need to do is provide proof by giving your name and others details about your enrollment to verification service SheerID.

Once you prove your status as a student, you’re service will be discounted down to just $4.99 a month for 12 months. After a year, you’ll need to reapply for the discount and prove that you’re still enrolled. Spotify limits the amount of times you can qualify, giving you a max of three years of discounted service.

If you happen to be a college student without too much extra cash to spare, this is certainly a great deal. Even better, the offer applies to both new and existing Spotify subscribers. For more details, you’ll want to head on over to Spotify’s website.
