Spotify offers, 99p albums, free tracks, cheapest new release MP3 and CDs
I love music but rarely pay full price to listen to it at home. On this page I’ve rounded up the best MP3, CD and music-related deals I’ve found.

Spotify deals, offers and vouchers
Existing Spotify customer deals
These offers are rare, but still appear from time to time.
Welcome back offer- three months for the price of one
This offer tends to run a couple of times a year, and last ran May to June 2020. If you’ve had a Spotify Premium account but cancelled it then you might have an email offering you three months for £9.99.
Twelve months of Spotify for the price of ten
This is a great deal from Paypal for existing Spotify customers. As long as you pay via a Paypal account, it’ll cost you £99 rather than £120, which is a saving of 17.5%. Frustratingly you can’t use gift cards with Family or Student accounts.
One reader let me know that he was charged a “cash advance” fee on his purchase via this offer, but that is because Tesco Credit Cards treat this kind of purchase like this. Most other cards should be fine, but it’s worth bearing it in mind.
It’s also now available on Amazon. You can it as a digital or physical gift card that is sent in the post.
Spotify Duo – £12.99 a month for two
A brand new option could be good for two people living at the same address. You’ll pay £12.99 a month for Spotify Duo, so £2 cheaper than the family option (£24ish a year), or £7 than two standard Premium accounts (£84ish a year). You will be asked to verify your address.
Spotify Family for £14.99 a month and get six accounts
A decent one if there are two or more of you with your own Spotify accounts. Subscribe to a Family pass instead and you can pay £14.99 all in. So the more of you, the cheaper it gets.
New Spotify customer deals
A couple of times a year there tends to be a new customer deal offering three months for 99p. When these come about I’ll list them below. Otherwise, new customers can always get one month for free.
Three months free Spotify with Paypal
New subscribers can get three months free when signing up via PayPal. More here.
One month free Spotify
New customers can get usually One months for free. It applies to the Duo, Student and Family plan too.
Sometimes, usually two or three times a year, the free trial period is extended to three months. The last time this ran was May and June 2020.
Apple Music deals
Five months free Apple Music
To claim this deal you need to open up the Shazam app on an iOS device. You’ll then see the link to get five months free if you’re new to the service. It’s possible you’ll be offered a shorter time if you’ve previously had a subscription. Ends 31st March 2021.
Tidal deals and trials
Six months Tidal for free
If you sign up for the free Lidl Plus app, new Tidal users can claim six months free. Ends 26th April 2021. Thanks to Jordan for giving me the heads up.
30 days Tidal free
This limited offer will get you a month of any Tidal plan, including the top-level HiFi plans for free. You can even get the family plan for this price which allows up to five different accounts for the one price.
Three months of Deezer free
You can get three months of any Deezer membership for free if you’ve never used it before. This is different to the usual one month free
£20 off annual Deezer plan
Pay upfront for Deezer Premium for a whole year and you’ll pay £99.90 instead of £119.88.
Amazon Music Unlimited trials and offers
30-day Amazon Music Unlimited free trial
This offer to try Amazon Music Unlimited is just for new customers. Sometimes there are extended offers for 90-days. You don’t need Amazon Prime to take out this trial. It will cost £9.99 a month afterwards.
£6.58 a month Amazon Music trick
Find out about my trick to get Amazon Music Unlimited for just £6.50ish a month in my Ways to save on music streaming article.
MP3 Download deals, vouchers and offers
iTunes code and card deals
From time to time you’ll be able to get a discount on iTunes cards and codes. I’ve written a dedicated page for these deals so keep checking it. It’s harder to save on these now than it was a few years ago, but you can sometimes save as much as 20%.
Sell your old CDs, DVDs, games and books
If you’re looking to clear out some old music and other media, then you can get a free £5 credit at Music Magpie when you first make a trade. You’ll be sent a unique code to use which lasts seven days.
