Amazon Music Free Trial: How to stream music for free
Amazon Music Car Mode

You don't have to rush to download music to an MP3 or media player anymore. With the right service, you can stream any song, any album, and pretty much from any device from the cloud. Sometimes, even if you don't have an active internet connection, you can download that content to listen to offline -- like if you're going hiking or on a cruise out in the ocean. Nothing makes this reality more apparent than the plethora of music streaming services available now; Apple Music, Spotify, Pandora, and even YouTube are popular platforms people use to stream tunes, but we'd be remiss if we didn't also mention one of the biggest ones: Amazon Music. You're likely already familiar with Amazon Prime Video, but this online retail giant is also host to one of the most popular music streaming apps. Just like Prime Video, Amazon Music isn't free, but if you want to sign up and give it a listen without paying, read on. You'll find everything you need to know about the Amazon Music free trial below.
Is there an Amazon Music free trial?

Yes, there is an Amazon Music free trial, and quite a generous one at that: New subscribers who sign up can enjoy 30 days of Amazon Music totally free, which is one of the better trial offers we've seen. Better still, this trial period applies to the full Amazon Music Unlimited experience, letting you enjoy more than 90 million songs ad-free. You do need to enter your payment information, but you probably already have an Amazon account, so your info is likely on file. All you have to do is sign in, start your trial, and you're ready to listen.

Use Grubhub a lot? This trick gets you free delivery for two years
The Grubhub app on a smartphone

It's Friday night. You're tired from a long work week. You decide to treat yourself to a nice meal from that cool new spot across town, but you're already in your pajamas. You worked hard this week. You deserve it. So you whip out your phone, order it on Grubhub, then do a spit take when you see the price. Delivery fees on mobile ordering apps are no joke. Thankfully, there's a way to skip all of that.

It's called Grubhub+, and it will save you a ton of cash. Normally you have to weight the cost of a $10 monthly membership against how many fees you really rack up. But right now, Amazon Prime members can get a year of Grubhub+ absolutely free. That's right, no strings attached. As long as you are a Prime Member who also has a Grubhub account, you get a year of the service for free. If you sign up by July 5, you'll get two free years. Prime Day 2023 has come early.

This AirTags deal gets you a free pizza — kinda, sort of
Person holding an Apple AirTag.

Here on the Digital Trends deals team, we usually highlight steep discounts on expensive products. There's no denying the thrill of buying a luxury item for a fraction of its normal cost. But another, practical way to save is by buying stuff you were going to buy anyway while it's just a bit cheaper. If you're in the market for a new phone, for example, checking out the best phone deals is always a great idea, or Apple deals, or TV deals, or smart home gear -- you name it. If you're an Apple fanatic, we have a deal just like for you.
Right now, Amazon is offering $9 off the Apple AirTags in a four-pack, but here's the kicker, you could use that tenner to order a pizza, soda, candy, or whatever your little heart desires. Yum, now I'm craving a greasy Pepperoni pie. Anyways, the Apple AirTags bundle is usually $99, but with this deal you can grab them for just $90, saving $9 -- so you can put it towards pizza, food, or whatever else you want. Check out that deal below or for more details on why the AirTag is a must-buy.

Why you should buy Apple AirTags
In short, the Apple AirTags are small, GPS-ready dongles or devices that you can use to track your belongings and valuables through Apple's Find My app service. They offer a simple one-tap setup with iPhone and iPad devices, you just tap and then tracking is activated. They're thin, lightweight, and durable so you can place them just about anywhere, to help you find lost remotes, secure your smartphone, keep an eye on your luggage, and much more.
In our Apple AirTag review, Christian de Looper praised the little device(s) for being easy to use, tapping into a huge ecosystem (Apple's), precision and reliable tracking support, and the option to replace the battery. You can also tap into a huge library of resources, like cases, keychains, and more, that extend your use of the tags, sometimes even allowing you to achieve more with them. For example, a simple keychain allows you to attach them to your keys, so you can always find your car keys, even if you leave them somewhere you visit like a restaurant, bar, or friend's house.
A special "Lost Mode" when activated, will automatically notify you that the tracker, and whatever it's attached to, has been detected in the Find My network. This is excellent for when you lose or misplace items and need to locate them, even after a long time of being away. All communications via Apple's Find My network are anonymous and encrypted, meaning your privacy is safe, and location data and history are never stored on the actual AirTag. That way if the tag is misplaced someone can't just look up sensitive information, like your home address.
Normally $99, Amazon is offering the Apple AirTag four-pack, right now, for just $90, which saves you $9. That might not seem like a lot until you go to order some food or a pizza. Yum. If you want to track lost or stolen items, the AirTag is one of the best ways to do that. We recommend grabbing some when you have the opportunity, like now. We're not sure how long the deal is going to last, just an FYI.
