The YouTube Premium marketing strategy assigns different prices to each country. This allows users to arbitrage the service's fee with the help of a VPN. This article explains how.

YouTube Premium gives you many advantages over the standard version. For example, it does away with ads, allows for video downloads, and can run in the background, even on locked devices. Of course, these advantages don’t come for free, but you can minimize the cost significantly with a VPN.

How much fun is it to watch YouTube videos? If your answer is an enthusiastic “a lot!” you’re not alone. The video platform has 1.7 billion monthly individual users, so a sizeable chunk of the world’s population agrees with you. Of course, the only thing better than binge-watching YouTube is to do it without ads. YouTube knows that. That’s why it has set up a dedicated YouTube Premium facility for you.

YouTube has always counted on you getting fed up with ads at some point. Thus, it offers a YouTube Premium free trial available for users to test the feature first before spending their money. And once you try it, you get used to it. Soon you’ll forget the insane number of ads you had to swallow as a YouTube watcher in the past.

So yes, YouTube Premium is there to enhance your user experience. But it has a cost, and it could be a bit much for some users, especially if they already have monthly commitments to pay.

So, are you interested in saving money on your YouTube Premium fee? Here is the right guide for you!

Due to recent updates in YouTube Premium’s credit card approval process, this method no longer works for everyone. Despite being able to have an active VPN connection to get a discounted subscription price, you will need a Mastercard or Visa with a corresponding billing address from the country you’re signing up through. And everyone cannot manage all that. At PrivacySavvy, we are constantly developing new solutions, so keep checking back.
