How to Get Free iTunes

There are several ways to get free iTunes for your iPod. These include iTunes codes, gift cards or free downloads from the online store. Be persistent and you'll soon be enjoying a collection of free tunes.

Step

Take advantage of the free iTunes downloads offered directly from the source — the Apple iTunes store. Each week, iTunes offers a free music single of the week. These are usually available for a week but some are offered for longer periods. You need to have an account and install iTunes on your computer to access the iTunes Store. Click on the "Music" tab located at the top of the main iTunes window. Look in the right navigation panel for "Free on iTunes." Click for a selection of free music.

Step

Be on the lookout for promotions offering free iTunes. Several companies give away iTunes as a bonus for purchasing their products, using their services or completing offers.

Step

Check with popular places that offer music. For example, many Starbucks stores offer a free iTunes Pick of the Week. Each week, participating stores offer a free song or music video. Usually you need to go into the store and get a Pick of the Week card, which has a free promo code printed on it.

Step

Get free iTunes gift cards and codes through "paid to search" web sites. These are sites where you sign up and use their search engine features to perform your online searches. In return, you can get points or prizes. Many times the prizes include iTunes gift cards or the points can be redeemed for merchandise including iTunes credit.

Step

Look for sites that offer rewards for participation in their programs. For example, there are programs where you earn points for reading emails, taking surveys and printing coupons. Points can be redeemed for rewards such as iTunes and other gift cards.

Step

Ask friends, family and coworkers to see if they know of any sources. Decide what programs work for you and how much time you are willing to devote to get free iTunes.
