Just like most apps these days, YouTube also offers a subscription-based plan for users called YouTube Premium. This plan offers ad-free video streaming, exclusive YouTube Originals, video downloading and more benefits for a better viewing experience. YouTube also offers a few gift cards and codes to help users get this premium access for free.
This YouTube code or gift card can be redeemed to activate a free Premium subscription. This gift card is added to the user’s account so that their linked account is credited as Google Play balance. This balance can be used to purchase services like YouTube Premium, YouTube Music Premium, YouTube TV, movies and TV shows on YouTube, and other Google Play digital content.
