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. Here are the best MP3, CD and music-related deals I’ve found.

Spotify streaming deals, offers and vouchers
A couple of times a year there tends to be a new customer deal offering three months for 99p, and a few times a year there are also deals to get old subscribers to rejoin. When these come about I’ll list them below.
This is a great deal as you can get access to Premium for six accounts for three months for nothing at all. It’s £14.99 after the three months.
Three months for 99p (new users only)
This offer is back. Sign up to Premium and you’ll pay just 99p for the first three months. When this offer ends it’s normally just one month you get for free.
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.
£1.99 Spotify Premium for two months (save £18)
This is good deal to join Spotify Premium. It’s for new users only – or anyone with a new email address if you were particularly cheeky.
Unlike other offers you don’t sign up direct with Spotify. Instead you enroll via the Sony Playstation Network (SPN). You can do this on your computer, and you don’t need a Playstation.
Once you’ve signed up to SPN you can link it to a new Spotify account. You’ll then enter your payment details into the SPN account – make sure you’re paying just £1.99. That’ll give you two months of Spotify Premium.
Once the two months are over you’ll auto-renew at £9.99 a month. If you don’t want this to happen you need to cancel it within your SPN account – not your Spotify account. So don’t forget the log in details!
Try 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.
Other streaming deals
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, as well as how to get 18 months of music for free (if you’re willing to swap streaming services).
One month of Tidal
The only deal on Tidal right now is one month free for new users. Earlier in the year Groupon had a great offer so I’ll keep an eye out for more promotions.

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. You can usually get around 6%, and sometimes as high 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.
