It’s £99\$99 per year. After this month is up I’m just going to switch to a yearly subscription. I wasn’t sure if I’d keep it at first because I’ve never liked the idea of streaming music services. I’ve been using it since February and use it a lot so will switch to the yearly subscription.

It's not worth it to go yearly. I rather do monthly as if the service pulls some of your favorite music you are stuck with it, iTunes issues. You have then beg for a pro rated refund which they rip you off on. I used it for 6 months and only got back a pathetic $38 dollars back so now I go monthly so I am not stuck with it.

That's roughly what you'd have paid for 6 months if you paid month to month. A $38 refund seems reasonable to me.

I prefer the discount that paying annually affords, you get 12 months for the price of 10, if You use an iTunes card which they constantly offer at a discount, effectively only pay for 8 months of service and get 4 months free.

You only got back a pathetic 38 dollars because you paid annually at a discounted price of $100.
6 months x $9.99= $59.94 - $100= $40.06 and you got paid $38 and change.

Doesn’t look like you got cheated.
If you continued you would have gotten 2 months free. By switching to a monthly subscription it negated the discount.

That doesn’t make any sense.

Yeah I got an iTunes giftcard on sale $100 card for $80. And if you pay yearly. You basically paid $80 for a years service. Which isn’t that bad.

The discounted iTunes card seems like a great idea.

What’s the best place to purchase a $100 iTunes card for less?
