If you’re a student that’s been contemplating a YouTube Premium or YouTube Music subscription, now might be the time to buy.
YouTube is currently offering both plans to students for half off. That means you can score YouTube Music Premium for $5/month (a subscription is typically $10/month) and ad-free videos for $6/month (a subscription is typically $12/month).
Are you an educator? You might have trained your cat to play fetch, but that doesn’t necessarily…
The YouTube music deal is a long-term deal, while the YouTube Premium deal is a promotion that only works if you subscribe by January 31, 2019. After then students can still get a discount but will pay $7 a month.
In order to qualify for either deal you’ll need to be a full-time student at an accredited college or university in the United States. Google also plans to make the discounts available for students in other countries in the future.
Sign up doesn’t require a .edu email address like many other similar programs, but your enrollment status is verified through SheerID, which is pretty hard to game.
And if you’re new to the student discount game, you might also want to check out Hulu and Spotify’s offering (you can score both for $5/month).
