TL;DR: As of Aug. 31, a three-month subscription to TIDAL Music costs only 49 cents through Best Buy.
We may never know whether Spotify or Apple Music is the superior music streaming platform, but we do know that people are wrongfully leaving TIDAL out of the debate. TIDAL is artist-owned, which means it’s able to have a more sustainable and equitable model that benefits the musicians we love.
Typically three months of the music service costs $29.97, but Best Buy is offering that access for just 49 cents — that’s less than it costs to buy a single track on iTunes.
TIDAL features a library of more than 60 million tracks and 250,000 videos, and you can listen to playlists created from your own hands or by music editors and artists themselves. You’ll get access to your favorite songs that you could listen to on other streaming platforms, but you’ll also get to listen to and watch content available exclusively on TIDAL. Remember when we couldn’t experience Beyoncé’s Lemonade anywhere else?
As a subscriber you can also participate in real-life benefits like concerts and direct interactions with musicians. You know, when it’s safe to be around other people again. TIDAL also makes it super easy to discover new music and artists as it aims to highlight up-and-coming voices you might not find anywhere else.
The regular monthly cost of TIDAL is comparable to other platforms at $9.99 per month, but if you subscribe through Best Buy, you can snag three months for just 49 cents (with a recurring $9.99 per month charge after the three months is up). Instructions on how to redeem the offer will arrive in your email inbox within an hour of purchasing.
