Everybody knows and uses music streaming services by now. There are plenty to choose from and most of them offer pricing plans to suit every need, including free access. Nevertheless, the free option doesn’t always suffice, especially if you’re an audiophile with a preference for 320kbps or if you listen to a lot of music on your mobile device.
Personally, I’ve gone through both free and paid subscriptions for Google Play Music All Access, Spotify and Deezer, and lately I’ve stuck with the latter. However, I have to say, the biggest reason for it is that I managed to get Deezer Premium for free and without actually paying for it. Deezer does offer quite a good service, but ranking all these music streaming apps is a completely different discussion. If you do want to compare some of them and choose the ideal one for you, I highly recommend PC Advisor’s overview of what each service offers, what paying gives you and the range of devices you can use.
Get Deezer Premium for free with Samsung and Android
The simple answer for this being possible is going for the Deezer Premium trial, which is essentially what you can do with other music streaming apps as well. However, the huge difference here is that this particular trial for Deezer lasts for three months (in comparison to only one month usually) and that’s not all. You can get it over and over again.
What you need:
1. A Samsung smartphone or tablet, or a friend who possesses one, of these: Galaxy S5, Galaxy S5 mini, Galaxy Note 4, Galaxy Tab S, Galaxy Tab 4, Galaxy K Zoom, Alpha, A series, Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge, and all mobile, Note and tablet devices that will be released by Samsung before the termination of the offer.
2. The Deezer Android app.
3. A new Deezer account.
4. You’re based in one of the following countries: Albania, Austria, Belgium, Bosnia, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Latvia, Macedonia, Malta, Montenegro, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Serbia, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland Turkey and United Kingdom.
5. Timeframe: 11th April 2015 – 10th April 2016.
All you need to do is create a new Deezer account and take advantage of the Samsung offer which gets you three months of Deezer Premium absolutely free (just remember to cancel the subscription before the three months end so you don’t get charged because of its automatic renewal). Once the three months are over, sign out and you’ll be taken to the Deezer home screen which advertises the Galaxy S5 offer. Create a new Deezer account and take advantage of the free Deezer Premium trial yet again. If your previous account’s visibility is set to ‘public’, you can easily access your list of favourite tracks and other playlists and then copy them over to the new account, so continuity won’t really be an issue.
If you don’t own a Samsung device, you can still use someone else’s phone in the same way. Just create a new account from that device and you’re set.
What’s interesting is that the offer used to be valid for six months instead of three, but it’s still something and you should take advantage of it if you can.
Other ways to get free Deezer Premium
If, however, you can’t get your hands on a Samsung smartphone, there are other ways to get free Deezer Premium. If you can’t spare the money to pay for the app, watch out for deals, because there are plenty. You can still get free Deezer Premium as part of your Pay Monthly plan if you go with Vodafone in Germany, take advantage of the EE UK offer if you’re already a customer, or get 50% off if you buy/own Bose speakers. Over time there have been more deals for free Deezer Premium, such as the Sonos offer and The Telegraph one, but they already ended in December 2014. What’s to say there won’t be more on the way though? I’ll definitely be on the lookout for these promotions and will duly update the post when I find something new.
