To promote its new cloud service for music, Amazon is giving away a free $2 MP3 credit! Just enter the code “CloudMP3” to redeem it (instructions on the process are included in the link above).
These days I find that I almost exclusively buy all of my music from Amazon vs iTunes, mostly because I love their $5 albums. (And yes it does sync up with iTunes – you just need to buy it, “download” it, and then click to play and it shows up in your iTunes library and saves in your cloud which is a nice insurance policy.)
Each month Amazon selects 100 albums to sell for a mere $5. I used to just buy individual songs since I rarely like an entire album, but now that songs are up to $1.69 per song, a $5 album is a good deal, especially if I like at least 3 songs from the album. Some of my recent favs? The new albums from Katy Perry, Cee-Lo Green, Mumford and Sons, Lady Antebellum, Black Eyed Peas and more.
