Spotify Student Premium Store


Students represent the largest, most loyal and engaged group on Spotify, but they don’t have much money to spend on luxury items like music subscriptions. To drive awareness and trial, Spotify decided to give them a taste of premium with Spotify Student Premium for $0.99 for the first three months.

To promote this offer, The Royals created the Student Premium Store – a store full of student essentials that had no prices attached. Instead, everything could be redeemed just by referring their mates and accessed by only those who were signed up to Spotify Premium. Demonstrating that they could have both their cake (as well as other student essentials) and eat it with the uninterrupted sound of Spotify premium.

The more mates a user got to sign up, the more credits they received and new users were able to sign up their mates too. 

Spotify Student Premium Store was a huge success, with 165% increase in sign-ups during the campaign period.
