Buying digital music online as a gift has traditionally been about using services that allow you to download audio files such as at Amazon or the iTunes Store. However, not everyone wants this. A growing number of music fans these days prefer to use a streaming music service so they can access an almost limitless supply of audio just about anywhere.

If you know someone who prefers streaming music, sending them a Spotify Premium subscription could be the perfect gift. Even if they have a free Spotify account, they'll appreciate the superior ad-free experience a Spotify Premium subscription delivers. If they aren't already familiar with Spotify, introduce someone to the joys of unlimited streaming by giving them a Spotify Premium subscription.

  • Spotify Premium gifts only work in the country where they are purchased. For most people, this isn't a problem, but remember you can't send a gift to a person in another country – the codes are country specific.
  • The gift card you send is valid for 12 months from the date of purchase. It is not redeemable in conjunction with other discounts or promotions.
