I downloaded the app, and the play music offline feature sounds really good.

I already pay £9.99 a month for my kindle books thing (WHICH IS NOT WORTH IT!!!) so I'm thinking of cancelling that and swapping (actually I'm cancelling it anyway...) but is it really worth it? or a waste of money? orrr is there some way of getting around that "offline" feature

Actually kindle unlimited is £7.99.... such a waste smh.

I think it's worth it, yes. Much cheaper for me to pay £9.99 per month for unlimited music than paying for CDs or downloading music from other places. Plus, if I don't like an album, I've not wasted money on it. I can just delete and download another album.

I would never pay that much for it. I got premium for 99p for 3 months which is great, the offline feature is very handy when you're away from home. The deal was for new customers.

You can get four months' worth of Spotify Premium for essentially nothing so you could try it out for yourself and see how you find it. Basically, everybody can get a month-long free trial, and after that (assuming they don't end it by then), you can sign up to a cancel-anytime deal which gets you Premium for three months for £0.99 (i.e. £0.33/month) -- essentially nothing, as I said.

No way!

I wouldn't pay that much either tbh, that is why I'm asking. Also I am cancelling my Kindle subscription so I could afford it...butttt it's whether it's worth it or not.

I see, for me i can't really tell the difference between good quality or bad unless it's REALLY REALLY obvious, so it works for me lol

I've used premium for about 1.5 years and I think it's worth it, the offline mode is insanely handy IMO and no ads is a godsend.

Even without all those 99p deals etc. I think if you're a university student you can get premium @ £4.99 a month and some phone contracts include spotify with them.

Lol I never realised until I heard really good quality. Then I felt like a peasant for using mp3 converter for so long XD

It may be worth it, if you got a discount. I'm pretty certain that students can get it for £5 a month (if you've got an NUS or unidays card). I wouldn't bother with that route because I don't want to pay £12 or whatever for a NUS card when a student card is sufficient for discounts nowadays.. at least for me.

And to be honest, I've got premium but I mostly use Spotify on my computer, where the free version is good enough. On my phone, I tend to just use SoundCloud or YouTube.

Do you pay full for premium or not?

Hm...I'm not sure I think I'm going to go for a walk, come back and then decide. XD
