Last I heard, group buy Family Plans for Google Music or Apple Music aren't really possible because the credit card is shared for all Google accounts on the family plan - do you trust RFDers that much? ;)

Yes, and Spotify seems to have some way of verifying it... (and they are cracking down on it)

One general thought I want to throw out there: I feel like this screams of Spotify being desperate for cold hard cash. Discounts for paying for a year of service are normal... but something that renews on the monthly rate after a year seems very odd. Most companies would autorenew yearly subscriptions for another year at the yearly rate, not this. Unless their CFO is trying to raise a lot of cold hard cash soon...

It will ask for address and you must enter the address tied to the account. Just enter the address it wants, and you are good!

Until, months later, you get an email asking to confirm the address... (which I presume means they did something, e.g. geolocating IP addresses, that made them suspicious)

In the bst group deals forum you can split a year of spotify premium with 6 people for $35. On my 2nd year myself, working great.

Yes. Just get the address of the person running the group buy.

Isn't the Family plan for 6 people ?
Yes it is. Spotify advertises “you and five others...”
Note that others such as Apple and Google also allow for 6 people too.

However, if you’re going for a single user account: Apple charges a discount rate of $99/year (billed yearly) just like this promo... but you can pay for Apple Music with iTunes gift cards and it becomes cheaper if you get the gift cards at a discount (i.e. Costco *had* them recently for $80 for $100 worth, now about $94 with shipping or $90 in store if you’re a member).

I don’t think Spotify is looking for quick cash as if they are in big trouble... they realize the holidays is a season of new phones and new services, and Apple and Google have an upper hand with their phones. I wouldn’t be surprised if Spotify has been losing subs though. Other options caught up and they are generally cheaper. If YouTube Red ever comes to Canada in the same way as in the USA, I’ll jump on it. $15 for family plan, YouTube ad free, offline video downloading, Music streaming, and watch YouTube without it being in focus.
