HTC is running a new promotion for customers in the US that might be eyeing the brand new U11. Simply buy the phone on Amazon.com or HTC’s online store, and you’ll get a full free three month subscription to Amazon Music Unlimited, the shopping giant’s answer to Spotify and Google Play Music.
This is a pretty similar promotion to Google giving away free months of YouTube Red with device purchases, but since the U11 offers hands-free Alexa as a selling point, the Amazon integration makes sense. Just like other promotions, this one is limited to customers in the US, and only for new customers, so you can’t stack it on top of your current or expired subscription.
I think it’s bold for HTC to try and carve out a niche in the flagship market with Amazon instead of Google, but hey, whatever works.
