Purchasing these services separately would cost at least $13 a month.
Excerpt from Recode article, “U.S. college students can now buy a Spotify/Hulu bundle for $5 a month“:
Buy a Spotify subscription, get a Hulu subscription for free.
That’s the offer from Hulu and Spotify, who are teaming up on a promotion where some U.S. college students can now get monthly subscriptions to both services for a total of $5 a month.
That’s a significant discount, as Spotify’s “Premium for Students” service normally costs $5, and Hulu’s basic ad-supported service costs $8 a month.
Both services have worked with other companies to bundle their offerings before: Hulu, for instance, will sell you a subscription to Showtime, and the New York Times will give new digital subscribers a year of Spotify for free.
Subscription video giveaways aren’t new, either: Yesterday, T-Mobile said it would give away Netflix subscriptions to wireless customers who paid it at least $80 a month.
