  • Nice ! Do we need to give credit card and then later cancel or is it a no payment method required trial?

    • No credit card details required. I better add that to the OP.

      • This is the clincher for me; once it pass 3 months, it'll just revert back to normal right?

        • From the T&Cs -

          After the promotional trial period, your subscription to the LinkedIn service identified below will automatically be cancelled unless you choose to purchase a subscription.

          I take this as meaning it reverts back to basic. Don't take my words as gospel though.

          • @dealbot: But what's worst thing could happen? they don't store your credit card details, so there's no way of charging. I guess nothing.

    Excellent. Now I can look at who's stalking me

  • Nooo. I literally just started my premium trial a few hours ago.

  • Great deal! Thanks op.

    I think LinkedIn has really screwed their pricing strategy for non-business development/recruiter premium. I would be a continuous subscriber if it was priced at $5-10 bucks a month, instead of $30+.

    • Perhaps most people only use LinkedIn premium when they're job hunting, which could last only 1 or 2 months. If they know this, then they might price it higher to capitalise. But yeah, offering 12 or 24-month subscriptions for much cheaper would be useful

  • So the code would be for the particular Microsoft account linked-LinkedIn account only?

    EDIT: I just want to know if I will be able to get a 3 month trial on my gmail account which I use on LinkedIn, using this method

  • Do Premium accounts get extra email spam?

  • Got it. Thanks OP.

  • stupid greedy business men, does everything have Premium subscriptions now

  • Thanks OP…worked for me

  • any good shows on linkedin?

  • I made the mistake of subscribing to free trial through the apple app store and forgot to unsubscribe. Didn't use it once and got a $42.99 charge the next month!

    Just remember to unsubscribe.

    • Apparently premium automatically cancels after the 3 month term. Its a prepaid (for $0) 3 month subscription.

    • Just a heads up you can cancel apple account subscriptions straight away and still use it until the end of the trial period


  • As someone thats about to get into linkedin soon, can anyone tell me what the premium service offers?

    • You can see who's stalking you.

    • Premium unlocks limits to searches. This offer posted does not include that feature.

      After a lot of name and company searches in the last month for work, I've hit the limit so only 3 results are shown per search. I hoped this subscription deal would solve it, but it looks like it's premium for learning side only. Seeing who stalked you is included, which most people want.

  • No downvote from Scotty?

  • Just FYI, OP. This works for old users as well, my premium trial expired in September last year and it worked for me now.

  • thanks, just the training was useful.

  • Thanks, don't forget to turn off all those ads tracking on LI as much as possible!

  • Nice!! worked… i've never done a trial or paid membership :)

  • Always wanted to see what the premium was all about, cheers OP.

    • It basically makes you a better version of yourself and allows you to msg anyone directly through a secret network

      Can even msg Richard Branson etc

  • Cheers! Have wanted to be a paid member but like others, it's just too steep for my industry. Good lengthy trial while I'm unemployed should be great! đź‘Ť

    Say what?

  • Worked for me too, thanks

  • Does this mean I need to tie my linkedin to a MS account that the code is associated with?

    • Nope. I was logged in to LinkedIn with a different account to what I use with my MS one and it just upgraded to premium.

      • Same here! Just have linkedin logged in with a different account and it will upgrade to premium with no issues! :D

      • How do they know to associate your account then…?

        Edit: nevermind, you have to be logged into Linkedin first.

  • Awesome! Worked for me :)

    This will help with my job hunting :)

    randoms i dont have anything to do with look at my linked in wtf

  • How do I view when my linkedin premium expires??

    • As I've paid for premium before, I think normally its here under manage premium account on the right.

      But looks like with this code it just says you're on a prepaid account. Normally you can see you're billing history and if you're on a free trial how long its for. But this didn't request for a credit card so maybe its different.

  • Awesome thank you!,

  • now i can see who is stalking me :D

  • Thanks op

  • Nice! I cancelled linkedin premium earlier this month, and it worked for me

  • you get 6 months if you have Visual Studio Enterprise

  • I get "you are not eligible" message.

  • Doesn't stack if you have premium already.
    edit To be clear, I have an active subscription.

  • Fantastic!! Thanks Op!

  • Successful here, thank you!

  • Awesome, this will help in my job hunt. Thanks OP!

  • Hi guys do you need to create a Microsoft account using the same existing email address as existing LinkedIn account to get the correct code for the three months activation?

  • "Application REJECTED due to not having a LinkedIn profile," said no employer ever. Not sure why people still use even the free version of this old spammy has-been data mining service.

  • Expired now…

    Oops! We've temporarily run out.
    Please try again later.

    • Getting same error.
