Keep the Record Spinning—How To Get the 7-Day Free Trial on Spotify Risk-Free

Spotify is the most popular music streaming and media services platform globally. It is supported on mobile phones, Apple devices, and PCs. Spotify has around 113 million premium subscribers, and they get to listen to over 50 million tracks.

Spotify offers two options—free and premium.

The free version has limitations—ads are frequent, you can listen to playlists on shuffle only, and there’s no option to select a particular track, but the choice is made for you by Spotify.


The premium version has no limitations, but it’s a paid subscription. Luckily they offer a free trial, and it’s not only for seven days! The Spotify free trial lasts 30 days!

Can You Get a Seven-Day Free Trial on Spotify?

Spotify used to offer a seven-day free trial for the premium plan, but they’ve decided to offer more. Now, the free trial for this music service is 30 days long, unless you’re a student—in that case, you get the free trial for three months. 

How To Sign Up for a Spotify 30-day Free Trial?

Spotify is supported on mobile devices, MAC computers, and PCs, but the signing up process is slightly different for phones and computers.

Getting a Spotify 30-Day Free Trial on Your Computer

To start your Spotify free trial on your computer, do the following:

  1. Go to Spotify’s website
  2. Click on Premium in the upper right corner of the page
  3. Choose one of the plans offered
  4. Tap on Get Started
  5. Create an account
  6. Enter your credit card information
  7. Select Start My Spotify Premium button

Starting a Spotify Free Trial on Your Mobile Device

In order to start your free trial on a mobile device, you’ll have to download the Spotify app. Once you have it, follow these steps:

  1. Open the Spotify app
  2. Create your account or log in if you already have one
  3. Click on Go Premium
  4. Input your credit card info
  5. Click on Start My Spotify Premium

Does Spotify Automatically Upgrade Your Membership Into a Paid One?

Spotify will automatically charge you after your 30-day free trial is up. You should cancel Spotify before the charges occur. This is how you can do it:

  1. Sign in to your account
  2. Go to Your Plan
  3. Select Change Plan
  4. Click on Cancel Premium
  5. Continue to the confirmation page

DoNotPay helps you cancel other music services—Tidal, Pandora, SoundCloud, Amazon Music, Google Play, and Youtube Premium.

You can avoid all these unnecessary processes before you even start your free trial because, let’s face it—having 30 days of free trial for any service is generous, but also clever. Think about all the things that happen in a month and see if you’d remember to cancel a subscription in time—most people wouldn’t. This might be how some companies bait their free trial users into becoming paying subscribers.

Luckily, DoNotPay has an ingenious solution for stopping unwanted charges and saving your money—virtual credit cards.

What Can DoNotPay’s Virtual Credit Cards Do?

DoNotPay’s free virtual credit card is a unique, randomly generated credit card number that hides your real identity from the vendor but can gain instant approval because it comes off as authentic. The number is not linked to your actual credit card account, so no one can come near your money. 

On the same note, our free virtual credit card contains no deposit, so no company will be able to bill you after your free trial expires ever again. This will also make the service cancel your subscription automatically.

How Can DoNotPay’s Virtual Credit Card Help You After Your Spotify Free Trial?

Get DoNotPay’s virtual credit card for free through the virtual credit card generator by opening our app in any web browser.

DoNotPay’s virtual credit cards can help you by:

  1. Creating a random name and email address for you, and a fake number and expiry date for your credit card
  2. Stopping the automatic renewal
  3. Making the company cancel your subscription
