Best Buy is offering six months of Apple Music for free with select purchases, and for as little as $10, new users can test out the music streaming service for half of a year. The subscription is just a small part in a wide range of services hosted by Apple that have become a considerable part of its business model. To entice new users to join the subscription platforms — from Apple Music, to Apple TV+, to Apple Fitness+ — the company routinely offers different free trial offers that provide users with a taste of Apple’s offerings. Though anyone can receive a free trial when starting out on most of the company’s services, there are better offers that can be had when customers buy Apple products.
SCREENRANT VIDEO OF THE DAY
Often, when someone buys an Apple product, they’ll receive three months of certain Apple subscription services free with that purchase. This can include Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, and Apple Music subscription based on the product that is purchased. To check if there are any offers available for an Apple ID account, simply open the Settings app on iPhone and tap ‘More For Your iPhone.’ Here, all of the offers already eligible for redemption will be displayed. For the most part, these offers are limited to three months. When purchasing a music-centric product — like AirPods, Beats, or HomePods — the free trial period is upped to six months. However, with the current Best Buy offer there are a slew of Apple products and accessories available that are eligible for the six-month trial period.

Best Buy consistently offers three-month free trials for Apple Music, Apple News, and Apple TV+ with eligible purchases of Apple products. The promotion has now been increased to give users up to a six-month free trial of Apple Music with an eligible purchase, and there are a surprising amount of inexpensive products and accessories eligible. It is for new and returning subscribers only — so current subscribers are out of luck — but new subscribers will be the only users to receive the full six-month period. Returning subscribers will get five months free, which is still great compared with standard offers and pricing. It’s unclear how long this offer will last, but the free trial promotional code will expire on September 5, 2022, so move fast to reap the benefits of Best Buy’s deal.
Eligible Products Include Cheap Accessories
Prospective buyers might be surprised to learn that eligible products are not limited to flagship devices with sticker prices of hundreds of dollars. In fact, the current offer is not limited to Apple products. Music products from third-party brands like JBL and Skullcandy are eligible for a six-month free trial, but the best value will be had with Apple accessories. A typical one-month subscription to Apple Music costs $9.99, and customers can actually get six months of the service for less than that cost. The best value comes alongside Apple’s Lighting-to-3.5mm headphone adapter, which is priced at $7.99 and comes with six months of Apple Music, six months of Apple News+, and three months of Apple TV+.
The promotion is only valid for customers using Apple Music in the United States, and that doesn’t just mean the Best Buy purchase must be made inside the U.S. The code must also be redeemed using the Apple Music service in the same country, with the person redeeming the offer being 13 or older. After the trial period ends, users will be charged for an individual plan for $9.99 per month unless the subscription is cancelled 24 hours before it is set to renew. The code will be sent to the email address used to make the Best Buy purchase along with instructions on how to redeem the Apple Music offer.
