Free music

If you grabbed an Amazon Kindle Fire HD 7, or have one on it's way, keep an eye on the lockscreen offers for a chance to get $5 free credit at the Amazon mp3 store. I ran across this one last night while playing a movie or two, and just had to share the news.

I'm catching some flack for saying I think the offers (read -- ads) on the lockscreen are a good thing in this case, but this is why I'm saying it. I'm an Amazon junkie, buying everything I can through Amazon Prime. I want to see ways I can save a few bucks, and having those "pesky" ads on the lockscreen keeps me from having to dig through to find deals and sales. I almost wish Google would do it for Google Play content. Yeah, I just said that.

Anyhoo, in case you're wondering, I spent my fiver on Eat a Peach by the Allman Brothers Band. It's one of a hundred full albums that are on sale for five bucks at Amazon this week. I had the Fire download them to it's storage, and am in the process of uploading it all to Google Play Music for the best of both worlds. Now if you'll excuse me, I have to relive the sweet sounds of my youth and enjoy my free tunes.
