• Popular streaming music services like Spotify, Apple Music, and Amazon Music Unlimited are all pretty similar, giving you unlimited access to stream and download millions of songs from all your favorite artists.
  • Since they’re all about the same, the only service you should be concerned with right now is Amazon Music Unlimted, which is completely free right now for new subscribers.
  • Amazon is running an unprecedented one-day deal on Thursday that gives new subscribers unlimited access to the popular streaming music service for three months — and even after that, it’s still less expensive than Spotify and Apple Music.

Spotify? What’s Spotify? The only streaming music service you should be thinking about right now is Amazon Music Unlimited because Amazon is running a one-day deal on Thursday that is absolutely insane.

Just like Spotify and Apple Music, Amazon Music Unlimited — or AMU for short — is a streaming music service that is available on all platforms, from computers and tablets to TVs and of course mobile platforms including iOS and Android. On top of that, it has deep integration with Amazon’s various Alexa-enabled smart speakers and other Alexa devices. That means you can say something like “Alexa, play the new Weeknd album,” and Alexa will start streaming it right away.

Even if you don’t have Echo speakers, Amazon Music Unlimited is still a terrific option… especially today. On Thursday, for one day only, Amazon is offering new subscribers the best deal it has ever offered for its streaming music service. Sign up for Amazon Music Unlimited today and you’ll get 3 months of unlimited access for free. That’s right, free! Similar promotions in the past like the one Amazon offered on Black Friday cost $0.99 for 3 months of access, so this deal is unheard of.

Oh, and there’s an added bonus, by the way. After your free 3 months are up, you’ll pay $7.99 for the service if you continue to subscribe. That’s cheaper than Apple Music and cheaper than Spotify, and you get access to all the same songs with the same quality. It’s pretty much a no-brainer.

There’s one more reason to consider this deal. Millions of people across the country can’t work right now because of the novel coronavirus pandemic, and they’re looking for ways to cut their expenses. If you’re among them and you subscribe to Spotify or Apple Music, cancel your subscription and switch to Amazon Music Unlimited. Even if you end up missing your old service, you can save money for three months and then switch back once your free 3 months are over. By then you should be back to work.

Here are the terms and conditions for this deal, from the Amazon Music Unlimited page:

This 3-month free trial offer of a monthly Amazon Music Unlimited Individual Plan is a limited time offer and is available only to new subscribers to Amazon Music Unlimited. After the promotional trial, your subscription will automatically continue at the monthly price of $9.99 ($7.99 for Prime members) plus applicable tax until you cancel. This offer cannot be combined with any other offer. Digital content and services may only be available to customers located in the U.S. and are subject to the terms and conditions of Amazon.com Services LLC.
