While there are plenty of free streaming music options, you typically miss out on some of the best benefits by taking the cheap route. Now Amazon’s Music Unlimited is offering a very affordable deal to give users a taste of what a subscription is like.
The Spotify and Apple Music competitor has cut the price for new subscribers to just 99 cents per month for the first three months. From there, Amazon Prime members will pay just $7.99 per month, while non-Prime members will pay $9.99. (Spotify and other services typically cost $10 per month.
The Amazon Music Unlimited deal is valid now through December 23, 2017.
Like competitors, which also include Tidal and Google Play, Amazon Music offers on-demand access to tens of millions of songs, as well as personalized stations and curated playlists. Subscribers can avoid commercials and download songs for offline listening. The service also ties in with the company’s popular Amazon Echo, letting subscribers play a song or artist with a vocal command.
Students can get additional special discounts on Amazon Music, as well. After a 30 day free trial, people enrolled in a qualifying college or university pay just $4.99 per month for the premium service.
