Students can get six free months of Apple Music right now instead of the usual three (new users only)
It's also easy to save if you're a student or opt for a family plan instead of a standard individual subscription, especially now that the former group can claim an extended trial. In lieu of the usual three months of unlimited, ad-free music streaming you can get at no cost whatsoever, Apple is providing students signing up for the service for the first time with complimentary access to a library of over 50 million songs for a full six months.
That represents a 50 percent discount compared to the regular $9.99 rate charged by Apple of non-student subscribers, mind you, which basically means you can save a grand total of around 90 bucks and only pay $30 or so for your first year of "premium" music streaming if you're a student and decide to retain your subscription beyond the extended trial period. Beat that, Spotify!
