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.
Free Google Mini Nest with any paid subscription
If you sign up to or already have any paid Spotify subscription you can claim a free Google Nest Mini, worth £49.99.
You won’t be able to claim the speaker if you’re on a discounted trial, pay with a gift card or via a third party, or if you’ve already taken advantage of the offer when it ran in spring 2019. You can also only claim one if you are signed up to a multi-user package such as Duo or Family. Offer ends 31st October 2020.
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.
New 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.
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.
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.
One month free
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.
Six months free Spotify Premium with purchase at Currys
If you buy any laptop, video game, console, tablet, smart TV, smartwatch or audio system over £49 you can claim a six month free trial of Premium – as long as you’ve never had it before. Obviously look for the cheapest items available, likely something like a £10 Steam gift card. Ends 4th October 2020.
£1.99 Spotify Premium for two months (save £18)
This is good deal to join Spotify Premium if there’s just one month free available. 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!
Other music streaming deals
Tidal deals and trials

Amazon Music Unlimited trials and offers

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.
