Spotify Offers, Verifies Student Discount
College students are typically strapped for cash, but want premium services none-the-less.
Today, Spotify announced it has teamed up with SheerID to offer a 50 percent discount to students for Spotify Premium. Students are able to enjoy the service half off, while Spotify is able to offer this deep discount, knowing that only customers who are eligible for the offer will be able to redeem it.
SheerID's technology works on the backend to instantly verify that those claiming the deal are currently enrolled in a university.
“Gating a deep discount like this by incorporating secure eligibility verification makes it possible to keep an exclusive college student discount truly exclusive,” explains Jake Weatherly, CEO of SheerID. “We understand how important the college market is to Spotify and we’re proud to be able to support this program in the U.S.”
