We’ve talked quite a bit about online music services here at Pocketables, with Spotify appearing in a lot of headlines lately. The all-you-can-eat model isn’t necessarily for everyone though, which is why services like Google Play Music, Amazon, and iTunes still continue to thrive.
One service that’s been around for a long time but which everyone seems to ignore is eMusic. I’m not sure why this is, as they have a fairly decent library of over 10 million songs, and their prices per track and per album are oftentimes much cheaper than iTunes or Amazon. To top it all off, music you purchase is DRM free and in MP3 format, so it’s not like you’re paying lower prices only to be locked in to a certain service.
And now is a perfect time to try out eMusic, as anyone who signs up for a 14-day trial will get $17.50 of credit to spend any way they please; that can get you up to 35 free tracks. And when your trial is over, you can simply download your tracks and then upload them to Google, Amazon, or whatever other service you use.
There really aren’t any strings attached, other than remembering to cancel before your 14 days are up. You can sign up at the link below.[eMusic via CNET]
