Merry Christmas everybody! Just to share with you a fantastic freebie, Amazon.co.uk are offering every customer a free MP3 album download on Christmas Day and Boxing Day 2008. Go to the Amazon MP3 Store to get your festive freebie.
These are good big name albums from artists such as The Killers, Leona Lewis, Guns N’ Roses and The Ting Tings.
My album choices from the free albums (what I’m currently listening to):
- The Killers – Day & Age
- Guns N’ Roses – Chinese Democracy
- The Ting Tings – We Started Nothing
- Pendulum – In Silico
- MGMT – Oracular Spectacular
Unfortunately my musical recommendations are slightly biased from the fact I have seen all the listed bands perform live! So do have a full look down the list of albums available.
You can get more other albums for £3 a piece – not bad at all. Definitely compares very favourably against iTunes price wise and the music is encoded at 256kbps without DRM which means you are free to listen to the music as you please. Given music can be quite a large expenditure for many young people, this could be a great way to beat the credit crunch.
Update: You’ll still need to provide credit and debit card information to Amazon. I believe Amazon will charge you for the album and then refund you.
Thanks to Richard for the tip 🙂
