- Yesterday, Amazon ran a special 1-day deal that gave new subscribers the opportunity to get 3 months of Amazon Music Unlimited for free.
- It was the best deal the site has ever run on Amazon Music Unlimited — last year on Black Friday, Amazon offered the same 3-month package for $0.99.
- Someone at Amazon forgot to end the deal, which means it’s still available on Friday for anyone who wants unlimited access to millions of songs for free.

Amazon has a lot going on right now, so it’s understandable if some things slip through the cracks. The company has completely shifted its focus and moved away from delivering most nonessential products. Instead, it’s utilizing the resources it freed up to deliver essentials like N95 face masks and hand sanitizer to hospitals and government agencies. This change will last a couple more weeks, and then the company will go back to filling all orders as quickly as it can, just like normal. In the meantime, good deals are a bit harder than normal to come by.
Of course, delivery logistics don’t apply to deals on digital goods and services, which is why yesterday’s big deal of the day was so great. For one day only, Amazon offered new subscribers 3 months of access to Amazon Music Unlimited totally free. For those unaware, Amazon Music Unlimited, or AMU for short, is a streaming music service just like Spotify or Apple Music. It gives you unlimited access to stream all the music you love from all your favorite bands and artists, and it’s available on all platforms, from computers and tablets to TVs and of course mobile devices that run iOS or Android. It also has great integration with Amazon’s Alexa-enabled smart speakers and Alexa devices from other brands. Just say something like “Alexa, play the new Weeknd album” and Alexa will immediately begin streaming.
Here’s the thing: someone messed up at Amazon. That crazy deal was supposed to be available for one day only, but someone forgot to end it! That means if you’re a new subscriber, you can head over to Amazon’s site right now and you’ll still be able to sign up for Amazon Music Unlimited without paying a dime for three months. That’s right, it’s totally FREE! All of Amazon’s promotions like this in the past cost $0.99 for 3 months of access, so this deal is even better than the one Amazon offered last year on Black Friday.
There’s also one more bonus you should consider. If you decide to continue subscribing to Amazon Music Unlimited after the 3 free months are up, you’ll pay $7.99 per month after that. That’s cheaper than both Spotify and Apple Music, and you get access to all the same songs with the same quality. Why would you pay more for the same music? There’s no telling when someone at Amazon will realize he or she forgot to end this awesome deal, so definitely take advantage while you still can.
