Many of us have been there, struggling to pay bills, eat while trying to maintain something of a social life. The reality is until you’re working full time and have been for a while, the struggle is real. Thankfully there’s a bit of pressure ease coming from Google who’ve finally extended their student discounts on Premium accounts outside of the USA.
Compared to the standard pricing, Aussie students can save a fairly significant amount of money across a year. YouTube Premium (including Music) will set you back $8.99 per month rather than the standard $14.99 per month – well worth the time to setup.
If you just want music, without the ad removal from YouTube you’ll be parting with $5.99 per month. That’s barely more than a cup of coffee and provides nearly limitless entertainment for the month. The offer extends to Australian and New Zealand students (along with a heap of other countries which can be found at Google’s YouTube Help page). While the offer has been available to Australian students for a while now it is worth noting the price discount now at a time when so many more countries have been added to the discount list.
Will the student discount be enough to entice you onto a YouTube premium account, or does it need more?
