You may also find other physical or digital gift cards on sites like Amazon or Best Buy.

Whether digital or physical, gift cards can be redeemed by going to www.spotify.com/redeem and entering the PIN from the back of the gift card.

If you’re planning on gifting Spotify to someone in your family, consider gifting it to everyone in the family. Rather than paying $9.99 (£9.99 or AU$11.99) per month for one user, you can pay $14.99 (£14.99 or AU$17.99) per month for up to six users total.

Each user gets to keep their existing Spotify account with all their playlists, songs and recommendations, but you can link all the individual accounts to the Premium for Family account.
