YouTube Premium Argentine Peso $119 (~A$2.40) Per Month (VPN Required)


It's really simple:

  1. Change your VPN to Argentina
  2. Go to YouTube Premium and sign up.
  3. Takes two seconds to get a local address.

The amount will be shown in 119 Argentine Peso
— Equal in July 2020 to $2.42 Australian Dollars

It used to be India we would rely on for this hack, but as Argentina's money printer goes brrr… They're the current new leader.

  • Best if you use a credit card that doesn't have foreign exchange fees.
    — it'll only set you back a few cents if your does.

  • Please post your fave VPNs in the comments
    — Many here use Nord as it was 97% discounted here sometime ago

  • Please let us know if you find a more affordable country.

Worth noting this will fluctuate with the currency conversion.. That'll probably be a good thing as the pLandemic continues to spiral currencies ;)

        The address should be the same and they have to use vpn when accepting the invitation.

        wasn't the case for me, and I added my 6th member fairly recently too, all just standard Australian accounts.

            @Pricebeat: I checked. All Australian addresses

            • @thydzik: I know people love a bargain, but you can do much of this for free, like no ads, watch in a window while doing something else and listening with the screen off. Just download Float Tube or similar.$0 and no VPN required!

    • I rememer a requirement in T&M about all family members in the same location. I can't find this requirement now. I'm bit concerned that Google would extra location detection to our accounts and we might be caught when we use our account without VPN. Should I be concerned?

  • Are there any drawbacks to getting Google Play Music this way?

    • I don't use Music but pretty sure it's included…
      Maybe wait for someone with Premium to read this and confirm :)

      EDIT: I assumed it read 'YT Music' not Google Music.. Haven't looked into that myself.

    • +2

      I thought Google play music was transferring to YT Music? so this sub might be a great deal?

      • Further comments below say it's included - Awesome.

      • +2

        It is, they are currently migrating people over before shutting down GPM at the end of the year. My experience since they copied my library over a few weeks ago has been garbage, I hate it.

        Currently considering the switch to Apple Music, so this deal might be great to keep add free youtube.

        • Agree I've only briefly looked at YouTube music not really a fan either, send a stand mix of videos even if you just want to play music. I couldn't find a chrome cast button on the web or desktop player in short of casting the tab.

          GOM has been great especially the radio feature that makes the auto playlist of similar music. It doesn't seem to remember listening history on various devices.

          I've been using Tidal for $4/month for the 90 day offer, and considering scrapping GPM/YT music as I like the hi-fi and MQA streaming quality. Would like no ads in YouTube though

          Wonder if you can upgrade for cheap using this method above? Won't be using the VPN only for sign up.


          • @G-rig: I know you mentioned the desktop version, which i find weird they're not there. But just want to point out the casting and "radio" exist on their mobile app.

            • @Umcookies: Hey mate yes works on my mobile app too, just not on the browser.
              Don't really expect it on the desktop app (Tidal only casts from browser also).
              None of these streaming apps do gapless very well.

      This includes YouTube and Google Play (YouTube) music.
      Source = i pay the Australian price for this until today

        Im interested in the Google Play Music subscription

        As an added bonus, your YouTube Premium membership includes (when available in your country) a free subscription to Google Play Music, with access to its extensive catalog of music. If you're already a Google Play Music subscriber, you'll receive a free Music Premium membership.

        But I'm wondering if purchasing in Argentina changes the content on Google Play

        • I've got a family plan paid via India. Can't say I've noticed any difference

        • +5

          GPM doesn't change, suggestions on YouTube music are all Indian for me

        • +2

          I've got the Indian version and haven't noticed any impact on recommendations. As per other responses though perhaps the 'popular locally' suggestions are impacted - not a feature a use but YMMV.

          I just need to convince my wife to stop watching boyband and kids songs under my YouTube account on the TV - that DOES play merry hell with my recommendations.

      • Hey man is it easy enough to change from Aus subscription to this Argentinian one? Do you have to mess around with cancelling and resubbing or anything?

        • -2

          I imagine so.. But if the 10 mins of messing around once to save $10 a month isn't worth it for you, don't worry about it.

        • +2

          I signed up today. On the 13th i went in and cancelled my subscription which fortunately expired on the 18th of July.
          Today just did the VPN and signed up for $3.59 for the family subscription. Happy days.
          Took 10 min.

    • +9

      The recommendations in the music streaming services are based on what's popular in that country. Which shows up in the home page of the app.

      There are also licensing differences, so you might find that some songs/artists/albums are not available in one country subscription but available in others.
      This isn't an issue if you're getting a new subscription. But when I went from the Aus one to the Indian one, a small handful of songs that I had saved in playlists were not available. I just had to go through and find them again in another album.

    • +7

      Yes, you get the top charts and suggestions of that country.
      In my case, India

    • +5

      As others have said, licensing, recommendations, top charts and other browse / radio functions default to India / Wherever.

      A minor inconvenience for me, but well worth the savings.

    • Only drawback I get from Indian one is that it has there locality for the popular music/categories, but you can still use any of it.

  • How much is family for Argentina? Isn't India the cheapest option?

    • +3

      Na boss, Peso is rekt!

      129 Indian Rupee equals

      119 Argentine Peso equals
      2.42 Australian Dollar

      Oh, that's the single prices to compare, family should be similar.

      • Are those according to xe or actual mastercard/visa rate?

        • According to Google.

      I'm pretty sure you can use your Australian student email to get the Argentina Student membership. At least it works with India YT premium.

      • Just for futures note to anyone reading this, google play music is shutting down at the end of the year i believe.

    • I remember I was really stoked when I found out about that! Bye bye $6 Apple Music student membership.

  • What if you are already subscribed in Australia. Is it possible to change country? Thanks.

    • +3

      It's possible to change over, I did it last year,
      Just cancel your current subscription and then use a VPN to change over

      • do you know if this will work if i pay by google credit? I've bought multiple google gift cards in the past and still have a lot of credit left.

        • When I changed my Google account from USA to Australian I lost all the credit I had from the free survey credit. Just buy the family subscription on a different Google account and then add your Australian one as a family member.

    • +1

      Yep. I just did this. Went through cancellation (not pause) and then it came up on subscription page to subscribe in ARS currency.

      • You are on a netflix TUR or ARG and been buying australian netflif gift cards?

    • Which bank card did you use for Netflix
