Apple Music want you to get your friends streaming music by allowing subscribers to give out a month of Apple Music for free.
Apple have sent out a notification to Apple Music subscribers with a unique new promotion. They are offering all subscribers a chance to send their friends a text that lets them sign up for a month of unlimited music streaming on Apple Music for free.
In the message Apple say: “Apple Music is better with friends. So give one of yours a free month.” Then subscribers can select the ‘Give by Text’ button to send a custom referral link to one of their contacts via Messages. When the recipient sets up an Apple Music membership from the link a new account will be created for them that will automatically renew after the first month.
The offer only applies to new users and can’t be used by existing subscribers to get a month free. They do however note that the promotion can be applied to their existing three month free trial period they offer to all new users – offering new subscribers to Apple Music a total of 4 months free when their friends text them a code.
If you’re an Apple Music subscriber then you should have been presented with the option to share a free month with your friends. If they aren’t streaming yet or want to make a switch, this is a pretty great promotion.
