Sing along with three free months of Amazon Music Unlimited

There's a song that says "The best things in life are free." Well, that song is right and you would know that if you had an Amazon Music Unlimited subscription. Why? Because right now for Black Friday, you can get three months of the subscription music service at no charge. This deal seems to apply to anyone who doesn't already have the subscription, including new and returning customers. I say that because it works for me, and I'm a returning subscriber. However, your miles may vary if you've done this before (especially if you've done it recently like when we shared a similar deal back in September). The service normally costs $7.99 a month, so this is essentially a $24 value.

So what do you get with Amazon Music Unlimited? Everything! All the music! Listen to whatever song you want with unlimited access. Plus, you get exclusive voice features and programs compatible with Amazon Alexa so you can say things like "Alexa, play Money (That's What I Want)" and get the version by Barrett Strong, The Beatles, The Flying Lizards, or any of the other millions of covers. Only The Kingsmen version is free without AMU by the way (in case you were wondering). AMU also includes ad-free music, unlimited skips, and all your favorite podcasts so you can listen to those as well. Download songs for offline listening if you're on the move.

The service is also available on a wide variety of platforms so you can always have it with you. Listen on your computer, your smartphone, your tablet, or even your TV if it has a smart platform.

If you're an audiophile, Amazon has long since incorporated the HD music version of the service into the base package. You used to have to pay extra, but now you can get the highest quality music absolutely free with the subscription you're already not paying for. You can even upgrade your plan if you decide you need more of Unlimited. Get the Family Plan if there are a bunch of little ears running around all trying to listen to their own tunes.

Keep in mind at the end of the free three months it will start charging you the regular rate. Hopefully you've gotten enough value out of it that you stick with it. If not, you can cancel at any time.
