Citi and Amazon are teaming up to offer a free $30 credit towards Amazon Music Unlimited, which will work out to be good for 5 free months for Prime Members or about 4 free months for those without a Prime membership (including the normal 30-day trial). I personally use Amazon music as my main music player on my phone (I purchase mp3’s from Amazon) and I’ve been very resistant to paying for Music Unlimited, but this promotion is going to get me to try it for a few months as nearly 5 free months is too good to pass up.
- Citi cardmembers (personal credit cards and debit cards only, Costco and Chairman card excluded) can get a promotional credit of $30 towards Amazon Music unlimited (which stacks with the free 30-day trial)
- Click here or the image above for a direct link to the deal (our affiliate link)
- Click where it says “get started” and promo code CITIMUSIC should be applied to your account automatically
- Offer ends 11:59pm PT November 14, 2017 (or sooner if the deal runs out)
- Offer is good for an Amazon Music Unlimited individual plan only (no family plan)
- Limited to new Amazon Music Unlimited subscribers
- See the link above for full terms
- Price reverts to $9.99/month without Prime or $7.99 with Prime after your $30 credit is used
This looks like a great deal to try out Amazon Music Unlimited for plenty of time to see if it suits you. As I said at the top, I’ve long resisted paying more for Amazon Music Unlimited for a number of reasons, but the biggest one has been price: I don’t think I usually buy $8-10 per month in new music. Sure, I buy more some months — but I didn’t think the math worked out over a year’s time. However, with this deal, I’ll give it a shot. With T-Mobile’s recent announcement that they have raised the data cap before throttling to 50GB/month and free Netflix on them, the time is right for me to try out this service and see if it’s worth giving them the eight bucks that T-Mobile is saving me on Netflix.
Note that those who have been Amazon Music Unlimited subscribers in the past are not eligible as per the terms. Also note that Citi business cards, Costco cards, and Chairman’s cards are not eligible per the terms. However, other personal cards and debit cards should be eligible to take part in this deal.
If you take advantage of this one, be sure to set a reminder for when your extended free trial is scheduled to end so you can decide whether you want to cancel or be charged for the ongoing service.

I don’t see what good is Amazon music if you can’t download it to your own private library.
Mine said Promo Code is invalid or expired. But the individual plan shows Zero, so I’m not sure it’s “0” because of free trial month or it’s because I’m using citi card. After that it’s the final step: star your free trial. How can I be sure I’m getting citi’s deal? Need some help here. Thanks
I see that someone over at Doctor of Credit said they were getting that error because they didn’t have their Citi card saved in their Amazon account as a payment method. Once they first saved their Citi card as a payment method, they were able to apply the promo code without the error. When I signed up, mine showed a 30-day trial, but then it showed the price after 30 days would be $0.00. That’s what you should see if the promo code applies properly. If that doesn’t do it, you might want to try chatting with Amazon support — they might be able to help you figure it out quickly.
Thank you very much. I’ll give it a try.
If we have multiple Citi cards can we stack them for a longer trial?
No. It’s limited to one per customer/account.
It’s not clear whether to sign up for the 30 day free trial first then go through this link? What should I do? It only says up to 4 months on your link.
I’m sorry if it wasn’t clear — if you look at my instructions under “The Deal”, it says to click the button that says “get started” and the promo code will be applied to your account automatically. Do you see that “Get started” button in the image I have in the post and when you click through to Amazon? That’s the button you want. After that, you just choose your payment option. It should show free 30-day trial and then a price of $0.00 after.
