Microsoft is running the same deal on Xbox Music as last year: a 12-month subscription for just $49.90. The promotion starts tomorrow morning online, and Microsoft retail stores will be discounting the subscription even further to just $29 for those who can visit a brick-and-mortar store. Normally priced at $99.90, the deal is limited to three subscriptions per customer, and a code for the service will be delivered digitally. Xbox Music is similar to Spotify, providing access to more than 30 million songs for streaming and the ability to purchase and download individual tracks.
Microsoft's promotion comes just days after the company ended free streaming for Xbox Music. 12 months of Xbox Music subscription includes ad-free music streaming for iOS, Android, Windows 8, Windows Phone, Xbox One, and Xbox 360. With a lack of a free streaming option for Xbox Music, this deal is now particularly useful for Xbox owners who want to stream music directly to their consoles and devices. Microsoft's Xbox Music price cut will be available tomorrow from 8AM ET.
