This short and sweet article will give you three ways to get cheaper Spotify Premium in Malaysia. It comes with the following disclaimer.
Pre-article disclaimer: I am not accountable to whatever happens to your Spotify accounts should you use any of these tips, including but not limited to suspended accounts and extra charges. That said, the chances of that happening is very small.
First way – Get on a Family instead of an Individual Plan
As of the time of writing, the Individual Plan costs RM14.90 per month, or RM178.80 per year. A Family Plan, which can cover up to six people costs RM22.40 per month or RM268.80 per year.
The maths make sense. Divide RM268.80 by six people and it’s just RM44.80 per person, per year.
The catch is that someone must be responsible to hold the main account. They will make the payment to Spotify via their account as well as assign account keys to the other five people. The main account holder will also have to chase the rest for payments, so the effective way is to collect the money upfront.
Important point: All six of you need to key in the exact same address.
Second way – Buy from Sepotify Premium Service – Malaysia (that’s not a typo)
In a FB comment, someone recommended Sepotify Premium Service – Malaysia and said that they bought an annual plan from them for RM29. The reviews look good, but do your own due diligence.
Third way – Keep an eye out for deals
Some of the expired and ongoing deals:
- Last time, Spotify used to offer 3-month Spotify Premium Plan for just RM2.
- Maxis’ ONEPlan has an option to get 1-year Spotify Premium Plan for RM1, if you lock your phone plan in a 2-year contract. Link.
- Via Hotlink, you can get 3-month Spotify Premium Plan for RM14.90. Link.
- Exchange points from GrabRewards for 1-month Spotify Premium Plan. Thanks Juju!
Spotify Premium with student pricing is not available in Malaysia yet. If they decide to launch this in Malaysia, expect deals as well.
