Split spending on a subscription service like Netflix or Spotify by finding people to share them with
Many paid online services, such as Netflix to watch movies in streaming or the apps like Spotify to listen to music onlineallow you to save a lot on the cost of the subscription if you adopt the cost sharing strategy among friends.
You can create a Netflix subscription and then divide the quota from other friends or family and the account access password, so that everyone can watch movies without limitations, paying half or even less depending on the type of subscription chosen.
It therefore becomes very interesting to use sites designed to bring together people who want to divide the cost of a subscription, manage payments and make it simple, even between unknown people, sharing an account on Netflix or on other sites that work in a similar way and do not limit the use of an account.
Let’s see together what they are the best sites with which you can split the cost of Netflix, Spotify and other paid sitesso you can save money to keep all the updates you want (on paper we can even spend just €10 for everything!).
how much is a spotify subscription Cost
One of the services that we will find in the guide allows you to share the cost of a subscription by taking advantage of the somewhat permissive terms of service (in fact, a problem relating to sharing an account will hardly be reported) or by taking advantage of family accounts, so that each user can have his own separate profile (as if we were one big family).
As an alternative, we can always use some collection and shared account management apps, so that we can always recover the amount necessary to pay the subscription for everyone (turning into administrators).
The best site where you can share the expenses of an online streaming account is Together Price, a site where it is easy to register and where it is very easy to find an account to share.
On TogetherPrice it is therefore possible get an account for Netflix or any other paid online service by sharing and dividing expenses (only possible with services that allow simultaneous access from multiple computers with the same account); we can also administer an account ourselves and let others participate by sending their money.
The payment is managed by Together Price which requests, from those who participate, a price increased by the commission due to them.
Therefore, if there is a cost of 10 euros to be divided, it may be that those who want to subscribe to a cost sharing offer have to pay 4 euros, giving 3 for Netflix and 1 for Together Price, always obtaining, in any case, a net saving .
Among the subscription services that can be shared and divided in Together Price, in addition to Netflix and Spotify, there are also Apple Music, Xbox, Office 365 and Play Music.
Anyone who wants to share an account and request participation in the shopping must demonstrate a level of Trust or confidence that is obtained by connecting Facebook to the account, giving the mobile number to the site and then also connecting a Hype account or any IBAN, so as to be able always receive the money we get from the various odds. If, on the other hand, we want to participate in an already shared account, just add a credit card or a prepaid card and pay your dues monthly.
In addition to website accounts, Together Price can also be used for buy software by dividing the costalthough only three programs are currently available, namely the antivirus Bitdefender, Kaspersky and AVG.
How to change Spotify subscription-Limits of Together Price
Even if everything may seem “roses and flowers”, we must also take into account some limits of Together Price, which can also compromise the correct use of the service:
- Exceeded the number of users logged on at the same time: even if we divide the share among a pre-established number of people (for example 4 for a multi-account of 4), nobody forbids one of the participants to associate the shared account on multiple personal devices and “steal a slot” in real-time, so that others can no longer see anything.
- There are empty share groups: unfortunately, not all groups have the maximum trust score and, if we happen to be in the wrong group, we will end up with fake or unusable accounts, even if we have paid the fee for the service (which can still be refunded to us).
- Personal data sharing: the other users who access the shared service can access the profiles of all users, understand their habits and also obtain personal data such as email, telephone number and credit card/PayPal number (they can do almost nothing, but still can get the credentials).
If these reasons do not scare you, we always advise you to share only very little information with other users and to always use PayPal within the shared accountso as to minimize the risk of scams or cyber attacks.
Alternatives to Together Price
There are currently no sites similar to Together Price to share the expenses of a streaming account, but with a little ingenuity we can use collection or bill sharing apps to replace Together Price and manage everything between friends and family without having to pay no quota.
The first app we invite you to try is We collectavailable for Android and for iPhone/iPad.
With this app we can create monthly envelopes in which to invite selected participants to divide the share of Netflix, Spotify and other paid services. By inserting a credit card, all participants will be able to contribute their share and, once the sum has been reached, the envelope administrator will be able to transfer the money to his credit card and pay for the chosen service.
Of course, this type of app should be used with people we know or trust.
If all the friends and relatives to be involved have a Postepay, we can also create a collection for the streaming service using the app postepayavailable free for Android and iPhone/iPad.
With this app we can receive payment for a common expense simply by opening the P2P functionality and sending friends to provide the requested sum, so as to be able to immediately pay the monthly fee with the Postepay card associated with the chosen streaming service.
Alternatively we can also take advantage of the app PayPal for the collection, given that it is available for Android and for iPhone/iPad and can support payment by different types of card and by current account.
Also in this case we can create a fundraiser to invite all friends or relatives so that they can pay the monthly fee for the chosen service; once all the funds have been collected, they will be immediately available on the administrator’s PayPal account, who will only have to use PayPal as a payment method for the chosen streaming service.
Other fundraising apps can be viewed in the article about App to collect money for collections, gifts and to divide expenses.
Even if there are many doubts about the nature of Together Price, nothing prevents you from saving a little by creating or participating in groups with high feedback, so as to be able to pay for all subscriptions for streaming services by spending even less than 80% of the initial cost.
If we don’t want to pay dues and want to manage everything between friends and relatives, we can also use famous apps like Postepay and PayPal to create collections and raise the money needed to share a streaming service.
