Ah Spotify; I can remember when you were just a twinkle in Tech Digest’s unbelieving eyes. How you’ve grown. You know you’ve made it when you’re selling gift cards in supermarkets, and that’s just what the music-streaming service if preparing to do.
Welcome to the thoughtless “bung an iTunes voucher into the birthday card” gift leagues, Spotify.
Looking to gain further mainstream appeal, Spotfiy gift cards will be on sale in time for Christmas, beginning at Morrisons and rolling out to other retail chains and supermarkets soon afterwards.
Available in three tiers, you’ll be able to bag £10, £30, and £50 Spotify cards, giving 1 month, 3 months and 5 months worth of unlimited PC and mobile music streaming access respectively.
Alternatively, the cards can be used to buy mp3’s through the service, yours to keep forver. A £10 voucher will bag you 15 tracks.
A fitting end to a year for Spotify that has not only seen a high-profile Facebook partnership, but also mega expansion across the USA.
