Spotify declared yesterday (Oct. 22) that Christmas is coming early by making Spotify Premium Individual users eligible to win free Google Home Minis, which previously only applied to Premium Family subscribers.

The streaming service continues to expand its latest deluxe membership offerings this year, considering its announcement last March that all Premium users -- not just Premium Student users -- would receive accompanying free Hulu subscriptions. However, this promotion with Google does not apply to Premium Student subscribers.

The company did not state how many free Google Home Minis will be given away, considering Spotify reached 100 million Premium subscribers last April in their first quarter 2019 earnings.

“We were delighted by the response of our first Google Home Mini offer last year, which is why we’re excited to extend our partnership with Google and expand the offer to now include both Family and Individual Premium plans,” said Marc Hazan, Spotify vice president of Premium Partnerships, in a release.

Spotify has rolled out the promotion to “make it even easier to discover and listen to Spotify via Google Home Mini and other Assistant-powered devices,” according to the release.

Giving out $49 Google Home Minis for free right before the holidays is not a coincidence. The streaming giant wants to “fill your homes with music you love by simply using your voice,” the release reads.

To redeem the promotion, Spotify Premium Individual and Family subscribers must sign into their accounts on Spotify’s website and link their Google accounts to their Spotify. This will authorize Google to view subscribers’ Spotify data and activity while taking actions in the music-streaming service on their behalf.

Next, users will be taken to the Google Store to select their colored Google Home Mini, which comes in coral, charcoal, chalk and aqua. Once selected, the Spotify-distributed discount code will automatically apply at the checkout page, but users still have to provide an approved method of payment.

Only one promotional code can be used by each paying subscriber, and those who’ve previously used Spotify-sponsored codes on the Google Store are not eligible for this promotion.

The offer ends Nov. 15, and promotional codes expire Dec. 31.
