Amazon is gearing up for their Spring Sale (which will start on April 8th) – and as an early celebration, they’re offering a three months subscription to their Spotify rival – Amazon Music Unlimited – for… free. However – it’s only for new subscribers.
Just as Netflix did for streaming video, a music subscription service gives you unlimited access to millions of songs – for one monthly price.
Amazon Music Unlimited was launched back in 2016, as an answer to services like Spotify and Google Music. It offers a selection of over 50 million songs, which you can stream on your smartphone, your PC/MAC, your Amazon Echo device, or even on your TV via an Amazon Fire TV box/stick.
Normally, you can get a 30-days free trial, but for a limited time (until April 19), Amazon is offering 3 whole months of free access to Music Unlimited.
Do note that if you don’t cancel before the three months are up, your subscription will turn into a paid one – at a cost of £9.99/month for regular members, or £7.99 if you’re an Amazon Prime member.
Amazon Prime members also get – as part of their regular subscription – access to Amazon Prime Music, which is a limited streaming music service with only 2 million songs. It’s a nice, no-added-cost perk for Prime subscribers, but it’s not a real substitute to the vast number of songs on Music Unlimited (or competing services).
