2. Cancel your subscription for an extra free month
Many have reported that they get another free trial when they cancel Apple Music. They will offer one free month to lure you back when you’re away for a while.
This offer may come after a few months, even in a year. I’ve got several free-trial promotions from Apple Music when I’m on other music subscriptions. But don’t stress it. Canceling your subscription isn’t enough to make yourself eligible for this offer because they offer the extra free trial rather randomly.
3. Buy discounted iTunes cards
Apple supports deducting Apple Music membership fees from any iTunes balance you have, so you can take advantage of some iTunes cards sales.
Best Buy, Target, Staples – they all discount iTunes cards sometimes. Besides, Gift Card Granny also offers a slight discount on iTunes gift cards.
For your convenience, CheapCharts has collected all the iTunes gift card sales for you in the US. You can check if there’s a sale available, or get Email Notifications when there is one.

With an Apple Music Family Plan, up to six people in the family can enjoy all the features and the full catalog of Apple Music. This works out to a total saving of $5 per month for 2 members, $15 for three, $25 for four, $35 for five, and $45 for six.
To sum up
That’s how to free Apple Musics offers quickly and legally. Shazam 5-month free Apple Music would be the best near Christmas. If this offer is expired, you can either switch to other cheaper music subscriptions and Apple may want you back with another free trial in a few months or consider upgrading to a Family Plan. If you’re not okay with the Family Plan, you can still get a few discounts by purchasing discounted iTunes Cards.
