Globe offers free access to Spotify for GoSURF subs

In line with its successful local debut, Globe Telecom, Spotify’s exclusive partner in the country, will give GoSURF postpaid subscribers free access to Spotify Premium starting on Sunday, April 13.

Spotify is a music streaming service recently which was recently made available in the country and has a mobile app available on iTunes App Store, Google Play Store and for Windows Phone devices.

The basic service is free (with ads), but users can opt to upgrade their account to Premium for Php129/month which removes the ads and gives them more access to features and services that are not available on basic account.

However, Globe Telecom will be waiving the Spotify Premium fee off starting on April 13 and will give new and existing GoSURF postpaid subscribers access to Spotify Premium free of charge.

GoSURF Prepaid users, on the other hand, will be given a day’s worth of access to Spotify Free on their mobile device whenever they subscribe to the GoSURF 10. The best part here is that using Spotify will not eat up any of the 10MB data allowance that is given to them when they sign up for the promo.

    just a question, I’m a postpaid subscriber with unlisurf, will that be counted in or out? Is gosurf same with unlisurf?

    How will globe do this? how will the postpaid subscribers get notified?

    Im sorry for my ignorance, but i need to ask this thing. Got my postpaid plan from Globe last June, the one with the unlimited internet for 999 PV i think… would I have any Spotify benefits? :D

    As per Globe, this is their rate:

    However, if I am on UnliSurf999 and I still have to register, will that be on top of my bill? If it is, then isn’t that more expensive than the Premium membership which is P129/month?

    Ang sakit din sa ulo nitong Globe. Nag subscribe ako sa GoSurf 799 nila (na dapat may kasamang free Spotify Premium), cinonfirm ko pa sa kanila kung naka-subscribe ba talaga ako sa GoSurf, sabi nila oo daw. Everytime i-try ko mag avail ng free Spotify Premium, sasabihin hindi daw ako subscribed sa GoSurf. Nung kinausap ko ulit CSR nila, sabi hindi daw ako naka subscribe sa GoSurf, sa SuperUnli Plus 799 daw (kung ano man yun). Tapos ayaw ako ipa-avail ng free Spotify Premium, ang gusto mag register pa daw ako sa stand-alone Spotify promo. Hanggang ngayon kinakausap ko pa rin about it.

    this is just a strategy to stop downloading music torrents.. if you are really trying to save up every buck, just download the music for free.. and stick to the cheaper internet promos on go sakto

    Gosurf sucks. Noong nasa laguna ako di siya gumana sa cellphone ng anak ko. I figured mahina talaga ang globe sa provinces kahit minimum 1mb per month lang ang kailangan ko kahit nag subscribe ako ng GOSURF99 (100MB). Kaso, Ngayon nag GOSURF ako sa Quezon city, expectedly maganda ang internet dito ay hindi rin gumana. Wala naman akong nababasa na hindi eto puwedeng gamitin sa window phone. HIndi ba puwede ang refund?
