This deal may be music to your ears: Amazon has announced that it is now offering a four-month free trial of its Amazon Music Unlimited service for Prime members. (If you’re not a Prime member, you can do a 30-day free trial of Prime now.) Should you give it a try?

What we like about the deal: With Amazon Music Unlimited, you get ad-free, unlimited access to 75 million songs in HD, everything from classics like the entire Beatles catalog to newer hitmakers like Bruno Mars. You will also have access to thousands of curated playlists and stations, as well as podcasts, and can listen to any song, anytime and anywhere. Note that this is different than Prime Music, which Prime members get for free, but only has about 2 million songs. 

Critics speak highly of the service, with PC Magazine noting that “Amazon Music Unlimited is great all-rounder for streaming audio” and Business Insider noting “it has a strong selection, helps listeners discover new music, and is affordable, especially for Prime members” adding that it is “a great value.”

The price is right too: Four months free for Prime members, and after the free trial period, the service is cheaper for Prime members (at $7.99 per month), than Spotify or Tidal, though non-Prime members pay $9.99 per month. You can cancel renewal any time by visiting your Amazon Music Settings. 

Other things to consider: Tidal and Spotify tend to have more bells and whistles, some reviewers note, and Prime members already get two million songs free, which might be enough for very casual music listeners. You also will need to remember to cancel if you don’t like the service; and this deal is only available to Prime members who have not already tried Amazon Music Unlimited.

Bottom line: If you’re looking for a streaming service, this could be worth a try for those considering a new music subscription service. If you’re a Prime member, the $7.99 price tag is especially enticing.
