Spotify Premium; Worth The Price? My experience; Taylor Swift

If you have not heard of this music streaming program/app/website then you probably should look into it, it's amazing. https://www.spotify.com/us/ or you could just skip this post... I prefer the first option though.
So first thing is first, I love everything about Spotify except one thing, Taylor Swift took all of her music off of it. I will not say anything else about that the rest of this review because I will bias everything from that because Taylor Swift is the best. So lets get started...
Now Spotify is on the computer as well as an app for your mobile device, I have not used Spotify Mobile that much, but I will still try to explain. Spotify Free is the basic program/app there will be ads about every 7 songs because it's free. On mobile it is Shuffle play only, you cannot pick the specific track, with limited skips. On the computer you can pick any song you want, you don't need skips and there are ads. You can connect Spotify to Facebook and connect with your friends, you have a feed in Spotify where you can share what you're listening to, as well as sending Playlists and songs to people.
Now that the basic explanation of Spotify is over I can review and explain Premium. Spotify Premium is the paid version of Spotify. With Premium you have Unlimited skips, it is not only Shuffle Play, and there are no Ads. You can download the songs to your device so you don't have to constantly stream it. When you do this it is encrypted, this is not a music downloading service. So with those features the two that were most important to me, a PC user, are No Ads (the ads don't bother you until you don't have any) and the offline option. With the 2 of these features you can use Spotify to DJ which I did a couple times. When I went Premium I paid the special offer of 99 cents for 3 months. My 3rd month just ended and I cancelled, because it would have been full price. Spotify Premium is $9.99 (+tax) per month or $119.88 (+tax) per year. For $10 it's worth it if you use it a lot, like me. They have a special offer for students at $4,99 (+tax) per month, for 12 months. This discount for college students with a .edu email address only. Sorry high school students.
Spotify also has discounts for families. Two people can go Premium for $14.99, 4 for $24.99 etc.

Spotify Premium is worth the price if you use it a lot like me or if you can use one of these discounts. If you use Spotify on mobile it is even more worth the price because of all the features you get on mobile. I plan on upgrading again sometime. Let me know what you all think about Premium,
