You save it as a new playlist to the second account.

  1. Sign in with the account where you want to transfer the playlist;
  2. Go to the playlist that you want to transfer;
  3. From the playlist bar, click Options;
    enter image description here
  4. Click Save as new playlist;
    enter image description here
  5. Insert the (new) title of the playlist;
  6. Click Save.

Now you have the playlist from the first account saved as a playlist of the second account.

    @Theta30 - leaving a comment is good, as would down-voting if the answer is now wrong or unhelpful.
