eMusic lets you sign up and receive 25 free songs. (When i signed up it was 50...sorry guys). The only catch is you do need a credit card. However, they do not charge you until your trial is up. The trial lasts 14 days. So you have 14 days to download your 25 songs. Now i think the main reason they are able to do this is because people forget (including me my second time around).
Yes, my second time around. After you get your 25 songs you can do whatever you want with them. There is no DRM so you can convert them, burn them delete them whatever... However, about 6 months later they sent me an email saying" Hey, come sign up and get 50 MORE songs. So all i had to do was sign in and i got 50 more songs.
So now i have gotten 100 free songs from them.
This place is pretty cool. The song selection is a little weird but hey still 25 free songs.
So what i recommend is signing up and canceling within a week so you don't forget. I mean you could just cancel same day. It doesn't take that long to download 25 songs.
JUST REMEMBER TO CANCEL!!!
Also, sign up for the cheapest plan so.. if you do forget it will only be like $10 a month instead of $20
So check eMusic out!
