After facing so much trouble for almost 6 months, I finally got rid of Spotify Ads and now enjoy my favorite songs for hours without any interruption. But How? Obviously, by purchasing Spotify Premium.

But it was not so easy for me to upgrade Spotify because I had to convince my parents to buy me Spotify Premium, which was a challenging task for me, and it may be difficult for you too.

That’s why, in this article, I will share my personal tips to convince your parents to Buy Spotify Premium that I used personally. So let’s come together and convince your parents!

How to Convince Your Parents to Get Spotify Premium?

So get ready to convince your parents of Spotify Premium. Here is my personally used step-by-step procedure:

Step 1: Do Research

Before talking to your parents, you first need to know the benefits of Spotify Premium yourself so that you can effectively communicate them to your parents. 

Now, list those features of Spotify Premium that your parents find most appealing. For example, you can note ad-free listening, unlimited skips, offline listening, high-quality audio, and many more.

And the most Important Point: Don’t forget to tell them about the block explicit content feature of Spotify Premium. Because most of the parents are concerned about explicit content.

Finally, Now you have a strong case for why Spotify Premium is a worthwhile investment. Now let’s go to the next step!

Don’t just start rambling about Spotify Premium out of the blue. Instead, wait for a time when they’re relaxed and in a good mood. This will increase their chances of being convinced.

If you go to them when they’re in a bad mood or angry, you might not get Spotify Premium, but you will definitely get a spanking. So be careful about this!

Step 3: Be prepared to answer their questions

So now you see your parents in a good mood, and go to them and say, “Mom/Dad, I need Spotify Premium.” Now they will start asking you questions about it, such as:

  • What is Spotify Premium?
  • How much does it cost?
  • What are the benefits of Spotify Premium?
  • And any other questions

So now you have to answer all of your parent’s questions: What is Spotify Premium? How much does it cost? And benefits, which you collected in the 1st step.

Along with giving answers, you also have to think about their concerns. Are they worried about the cost? Do they/you need Spotify Premium Plan? Once you understand their concerns, you can address them directly.

Maybe your parents will agree to this step. If they don’t agree, then follow the next steps.

Step 4: Tell them about the offers

Mention any currently available offers on Spotify, Such as free trials or discounted rates for new subscribers.

And you can tell your parents about Spotify Premium coupons and promo codes, that can save you money on your subscription.

After mentioning these offers, you can make Spotify Premium even more appealing to your parents. After all, who doesn’t love a good deal?

Step 5: Offer to pay for a portion of the subscription

If your parents are worried about the Spotify Premium cost, tell them you are ready to pay a portion of this subscription. You could offer to pay for half the subscription or more. This will make them feel that you are serious about it.

And now your parents will probably agree, if they still don’t agree then come with me towards the next step.

Step 6: Tell them about the Cancellation Policy

If your parents have not agreed yet, you must tell them that they can cancel this subscription anytime if they do not like this service. And there is no penalty fee for canceling the subscription.

Step 7: Be persistent

Don’t give up if they don’t say yes right away, try again and again. But don’t try to be a bullet train, your parents need some time to think about it.

Good News: After this step, my parents agreed, but if your parents still don’t agree to buy Spotify Premium, then you can follow some extra tips given below.
