If you've been looking for a reason to sign up for a Groove Music pass, now might be the time to pull the trigger. Breaking from its usual free four-month giveaways, Microsoft is offering up six extra months of Groove Music to new users who pay for one month now as part of a flash sale.

Flash sale offers 6 free months of Groove Music pass when you subscribe

The deal works similarly to other Groove subscriptions giveaways Microsoft has done in the past. You first sign up for the service and pay for one month at $10. After that, Microsoft will email you two 3-month subscription codes within 30 days. And since we're dealing with codes here, you can opt to give them to someone else if Groove isn't your cup of tea. The only big caveat is that the codes must be redeemed by September 4.

This deal is part of a flash sale set to run through 12 a.m. PT on July 12 and is for new subscribers in the U.S. only. In other words, you'll want to decide quickly whether you want to shell out the $10 for what is essentially seven months total of Groove. If that sounds like it's up your alley, you can get started at Microsoft's dedicated promotion page now.
