[Apple] Free 5 Month Apple Music Subscription - through the Shazam app

Free through the Shazam app for five months. It says new users only, but I’ve been able to use new user promos before on Apple stuff. YMMV.

From AppleInsider:

Apple this week activated a promotion that nets new Apple Music users a free five-month trial to the service, with the offer available through the company's Shazam music identification app.

The special holiday offer was quietly announced in an update to Shazam's App Store listing, which notes new users can receive five months of Apple Music for free by downloading Shazam and identifying a song. When a song is recognized, a conditional link appears and directs users to subscribe to the music streaming service.

Apple says the special runs through Jan. 17, 2021, and is available to new Apple Music subscribers in Australia, Canada, Mexico, the U.S. and other countries.

The standard Apple Music free trial period is limited to three months, after which customers are charged a recurring fee of $9.99 a month. Apple's music streaming service also features in all Apple One bundles, including Family Plan and Premiere tiers.

Edit - first time showed up to 2 months. 2nd time showed up to 5 months. But when I followed link to Apple Music it was 1 month free.

I have tried Apple Music way back when it launched but not since

I am just finishing a 4-month free trial of Apple Music. It hasn't been my favourite music service for a couple of reasons:

- The web browser interface is poor, and I don't want to fire up messy iTunes again on my PC since it re-installs so many always-running background services.

- Google doesn't support it on Google Home devices for competitive reasons.

- I prefer music services that are independent of my devices and my accounts that are used for other services (like Apple, Google, and Amazon). For example if I use Spotify, it works on all my devices, and doesn't complain about which Amazon or Google or Apple account I am using or which country I am in.

Tried on a lark, and the app showed ‘up to five’...but reverted to the standard 3 when the Music app actually opened. I’ve studiously avoided signing up for AM so far ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

WTF I just tried through Shazam, saw a 4 month free offer, but the app store wouldn't connect to re-download music. Close both apps, install Apple Music manually, recheck the offer and now it's down to 1 month.
LOL no thanks.

Thanks OP worked for me on my iPad, showed a code then overlaid that with redeem, instructed to double click power button, Face ID and enter Apple ID password. Usual iOS overkill but free four months is there in subscriptions.
