If you’re like me, you’ve got an unexplainable distaste for iTunes. I don’t know why I don’t like it, but I just don’t. So it’s a good thing emusic.com is out there. In case you haven’t heard of them, they’re a great alternative to iTunes for most MP3s you’d want to download, even some of the more rare indie stuff. The MP3s are all DRM-free, unlimited use and transfers, unlike iTunes, and, with one of their subscription plans, you can pay as little as 30 cents a song.
But wait! There’s more! Click here to get 50 free MP3 downloads just for trying the service. And when you’ve downloaded your 50 songs, you can either continue with them at $10 a month for 30 downloads or just cancel your account and you won’t be charged a thing. I did it and it really does work that easily!
Oh, and when you sign up they’ll try to get you to download their software but you can click that you don’t want to download it if you’re paranoid like me. The only disadvantage is that you’ll have to download MP3s one at a time instead of whole albums at once.
Another cool promotional thing they’re doing is that if you sign up and decide to keep your subscription with them, you can sign your friends up for subscriptions (and 50 free MP3s) and get 50 free downloads of your own when they join.
I haven’t really gotten any spam from them yet, and I’ve been using them for a few months, so sign up now!
