Sometimes in life, the planets just align. A confluence of good things presents itself and prompts you to act. This, folks, is one of those times.
Walmart just announced that Walmart+ members can now enjoy an additional benefit with their already perk-packed subscription. Not yet familiar with Walmart+? It's kind of like Amazon Prime. For only $98 a year (or $12.95 a month), you get free grocery delivery, free shipping on online orders (with no order minimum) and deals on prescriptions and gas. Plus, you get access to scan & go contact-free payment so you can spend less time at the register. Walmart+ members also get early and exclusive access to special promotions and product releases.
And now new and existing Walmart+ customers get a surprise gift: Spotify Premium forsix months free. This means ad-free listening and unlimited song skips. A truly delightful, customized music experience, day after day for six whole months. Typically, this account would cost you $10 per month, so this translates into a $60 bonus. All users who have yet to try Spotify Premium are eligible for the deal. So even if you've been a Walmart+ member for a while, you can take advantage of this perk.
When you look at the math, it would be foolish not to sign on for Walmart+. Think about it: A Spotify premium membership would cost you 60 bucks for six months. Spending just $38 gets you a whole year of Walmart+, with tons of savings and perks. You'll also get discounts on some mind-blowing deals (like half off a 12-in-1 air fryer and toaster oven) and access to hard-to-find products (PS5, anyone?).
With a Spotify Premium account, in addition to ad-free listening with unlimited skips, you'll have access to tons of music and podcasts. At the end of six months, you can either start paying the $10 monthly fee to continue your Spotify Premium subscription or cancel it, no muss, no fuss. All that sounds like music to our ears. Sounds pretty good to us (heh heh).
