Very few things in life are free.
But right now, Amazon is giving new-to-Amazon Music subscribers access to tens of million songs at zero cost for three months. I know, we’re shocked, too. Regardless of whether you’re a Prime member or not, you can enjoy three months of unlimited music for absolutely no cost — but only for a limited time, since this deal ends on June 2.
While competitive streaming services will cost you upward of $14.99 each month, you can have the same music access ad-free (and with unlimited skips!) for a fraction of the cost.
According to TechRadar, Amazon Music’s catalog includes 5 million more songs than Apple Music and 15 million more songs than Spotify. With this deal and after three months, your subscription will automatically renew for $9.99 (or just $7.99 for Prime members) a month, but Amazon gives you the option to cancel your subscription at any time.
For those who already have Prime Music and are thinking about making the switch to unlimited, there are a few key differences between the service and Amazon’s Music Unlimited that might make you want to rethink your original subscription. First, Prime Music features over 2 million songs, while Amazon Music Unlimited has almost 30 times the selection. Second, 3D and Ultra HD playback are not available on Prime Music but are on Music Unlimited. Lastly, Prime Music does not support a family plan like Music Unlimited does.
Perhaps our favorite Amazon Music Unlimited feature is the option to download your songs to stream offline when you are in a place without WiFi — like the airplane or on the beach. Unlimited Music can be downloaded on up to four devices so you can take your party playlist from your iPhone to your iPad to your kitchen with your Amazon Echo Dot.
