There are so many ways to listen to music these days that it can be hard to figure out which plans offer the best price for the value. Some streaming services have free plans, but come with ads and limited listening options, while others avoid those headaches but run upwards of $20 per month. With the holidays around the corner, Amazon Prime members can currently get a great deal on the retail giant's upgraded streaming service, Amazon Music Unlimited.

For a limited time, Amazon's music streaming service is offering a three-month free trial for new subscribers. Usually running shoppers $9.99 a month ($7.99 for Amazon Prime members), Music Unlimited gives you access to 75 million songs on demand without ad interruption—they can even be downloaded to your device for offline playback. In addition to tunes galore, the Unlimited version of the service boasts plenty of on-demand podcasts, all of which will come completely free of ads. After the trial period, the service will renew at the normal monthly rate, so if you don't want to pay for continued access, make sure you cancel before the promotional period expires.
We named Unlimited one of the best music streaming services around thanks to its song selection (on par with Spotify!) and to its Dolby Atmos Music feature, which expands a song's mix selection for heightened surround and speaker height elements. This benefit is now enabled for anyone with a mobile device compatible with the Amazon Music app and any pair of headphones, along with the Amazon Echo Studio speaker ($199.99) which is also one of our favorite smart speakers. Though other music streaming services offer more playlists and customization bells and whistles, we think Music Unlimited is a strong contender—especially with this deal.
Give Amazon Music Unlimited a spin and hear how it can make your holidays (this and many more) come alive.
