NEW YORK (MainStreet) – If the “shuffle” on your iPod has become rather repetitive, we found two deals that can add some variety to your music lineup for free.
First is Spin magazine, which is once again offering free MP3s of songs featured in its latest issue. There are 19 songs, listed on Spin’s iTunes page, which also gives you instructions and the coupon code 9EH77P9XTA4N that gives you access to the songs. The offer expires March 31, though by that time we imagine Spin will have posted another set of songs from its April issue. So if you don’t see anything you like there, you can probably wait it out and see what’s next. Songs include “Shell Games” from Bright Eyes and the latest offering from Charles Bradley.
Southwest Airlines (Stock Quote: LUV) is running a similar deal for “artists about to fly,” though it’s one-upping Spin’s giveaway by offering 20 songs. The songs are listed on the airline’s website. All you need to do is enter your e-mail address and the coupon code will be sent to you. Make sure you uncheck the box if you don’t want to get promotional e-mails from Southwest. Songs include “Diamond in the Dark” by the Fresh & Onlys and “Love Fade” by Tamaryn.
I can’t vouch for the songs themselves; of the 39 bands featured in the deals, I’ve only heard of two. Still, it’s free, so even if you don’t like the music, you can delete it at no cost.
