AT&T subscribers can now get Spotify Premium for free — here’s how


So you’re looking for a way to score free Spotify Premium, huh? If you’re an AT&T customer, you’re in luck — the carrier is offering a Premium subscription to all customers with an Unlimited & More plan, and a six-month trial to some who aren’t.

Best of all, the promotion, which is a direct response to Verizon’s offer of either a six-month trial or a free Apple Music subscription to its customers depending on the plan they’re on, is available to both new and existing AT&T customers.

What is Spotify Premium?

Before we dive into the details, let’s talk about Spotify Premium. Like the free version, it’s home to millions of songs available on any device, but with the Premium version, they’re available ad-free without the need to shuffle-play an artist, album, or playlist.

But there’s more to it than that — Premium also comes decked out with music videos, the option to save songs for offline listening, oodles of hand-curated playlists, and Spotify Radio for a regular subscription fee of $10 per month.

How to get free Spotify Premium

Now that we’re familiar with Spotify Premium and the myriad of features that come with it, let’s turn our attention to how AT&T subscribers can get it for free. But first, a prerequisite: You will need a computer, smartphone, or tablet to proceed.

Next, just head over to myAT&T, sign in to your account, tap on My Benefits & Rewards, then follow the on-screen instructions to redeem the promotion and link it to your existing (or a fresh) Spotify account.

You may need to pay to keep the tunes flowing.

Once signed up, subscribers to AT&T unlimited plans will receive a comped Premium membership that’ll run right through the end date of their AT&T contract, while those on a regular plan will receive a six-month trial, after which they’ll need to pay $10 per month to keep the ad-free tunes flowing.

If you don’t see the option to register for a free trial, it’s because the plan you’re on isn’t eligible for the promotion.

What else does AT&T offer its customers?

If Spotify Premium doesn’t quite tickle your fancy, AT&T has a number of other offers available for customers who subscribe to its Unlimited plan, including subscriptions to Cinemax, HBO Go, Pandora, Showtime, Starz, and more.

Tons of T-Mobile subscribers just got a free year of Apple TV+

If you're a T-Mobile subscriber on one of the company's Magenta or Magenta Max unlimited data plans, you're going to be getting access to Apple TV+ for free, for a whole year, starting August 25. Unlike some other bonus offers, this one isn't just being used as a way to lure new subscribers to T-Mobile (though clearly, it could do that as well).

T-Mobile customers on the company's Magenta 55+, Magenta Military, Magenta First Responders, Sprint Unlimited Plus, Sprint Premium, and T-Mobile for Small Business Customers plans all get in on the free Apple TV+ action. Better yet, it doesn't matter if you're currently on a free trial for Apple TV+ or if you're already paying for the streaming video service. Those in the midst of a free trial will see their trial period extended by 12 months, while paid plans will be put on a payment holiday for the duration of the free year.

Spotify Car Thing

Spotify's Car Thing, a gadget that lets users access the company's streaming music offering in a driver-friendly format, is finally a product regular Spotify Premium subscribers have a chance of getting their hands on.  As part of the device's formal launch, subscribers can sign up to get one, and, remarkably, Spotify is discounting the entire $80 price, asking that eligible customers only pay the $7 shipping charge.

What exactly is Car Thing? It's a device that Spotify has been working on for a few years, using early prototypes to understand how its customers interact with Spotify's streaming audio content while in their cars. The version that the company has just released looks like a smartphone with a large rotating knob attached to the front of the display.
