Earlier on we informed you about the very exciting news regarding the long awaited US launch of streaming music service Spotify. We can now tell you that the service has now gone live in the US, but you will need to be invited if you want to try it out.
The creators of Spotify have decided to make the free version of Spotify US invite only, so you’ll need to obtain a code from a friend who has a subscription to the service, or by getting a code via other avenues available on the internet – there are many.
The important thing to note here though, is that you do not need a code if you want to jump into a paid-for subscription straight away. Prices for Spotify start from $4.99 or $9.99 per month depending on if you want the Unlimited or Premium version, and you can cancel your subscription after one month and use the free version afterwards if you prefer – thus eliminating the need for an invite altogether.
So, the all important question that most of you are asking right now is ‘how do i get myself an elusive code?’ Well, while we don’t have the direct codes for you here since we’re located in the UK and Spotify is free, we do have some locations where you can leave your email address with Spotify so you can be mailed a code.
You better act quick though, because these invites are getting snapped up by the second, with eager music lovers desperately trying to get their hands on one. If you want our opinion though, pay $4.99 for a one month subscription and then move on to the free version afterwards, it’s well worth it and you’ll love how easy it is to use Spotify and the vast library of songs available as soon as you’ve created your account.
Below you’ll find the link where you can put your email address and hope you get invited by Spotify. We’ll add more as soon as we find more links, so don’t be too disappointed if you don’t gain access straight away. In the meantime, we’re hoping Spotify won’t stay in this format forever, as it’s a bit tedious requiring an invite on the very first launch day, especially when similar services such as Grooveshark are available for free, without the need for any invitations.
Let us know how you get on, and you have found some alternative methods to gain an invite to Spotify.
