Is it possible to get prime music trial free in any way?

 

Ive used my youshop ID etc, but clearly when I try to use Prime Music it wont let me enter my details for a NZ credit card.

You're talking Prime Music or Amazon Music Unlimited?

 

For Prime Music you need to have Amazon Prime and use a VPN or DNS service to access the service. No card required and it's already included in Amazon Prime. For Amazon Music Unlimited you need a card.

Seems a lot of effort when there's far better streaming services such as Spotify and Apple Music which don't require jumping through hoops

Im sorry Sir Admin but I think you are wrong, as per the other poster Im using Prime, Im using a DNS, Im getting American Video, Ive deleted my credit card and I credited my gift balance by $1 (which I dont think does anything).

 

When you click on prime music it brngs up that form to fill in all your details and credit card again, which wont work being NZ card.

 

Now clearly both the above poster and I have the same issue and he IS a paid member and still cant get access. So freit something else is going on here.....

I can download prime music and play it offline, I get thousands of Kinder books, I get thousands of Videos.

 

I tried spotify, it truely is a POS imo, each to their own, but Id not pay for it.

 

But I agree this is painful trying to access music on Amazon prime.

Yep same problem. So its clearly not having an account and having ur credit card deleted and having a US address that matter for prime music. Freitasm or anyone else can we get some help here?

 

Are there services that offer fake US CC numbers (legally) like NZposts US postal address system?

I dont use any VPN or DNS to access prime music from the app on my phone and it works fine? Initially had problems with it but it came right after I complained to them that I couldnt use it.

 

I still am stuck on an aussie account for the drive thing so last I tried couldnt get the unlimited photo service, but no biggie, just use the TB I pay for at google for photos.

Dns/vpn isn't the problem. It seems that for some reason tealeaf and my self have been flagged as maybe being from outside of USA so have to prove it when we enter prime music by presenting valid cc details. I don't get this, as mentioned, when I do anything else within Prime.

There are numerous services that offer a USA based credit card, like this one:

 

https://www.usunlocked.com/landing/opas/

 

 

 

There will be a fee though so unless you are spending a fair bit per month it may not be worth it.

@TeaLeaf have you tried accessing Amazon prime music lately?. I clicked on a link from an Amazon email about song recommendations and no "credit card required" pop up happened on the prime music site. So listen for a bit and then closed it and accessed it directly, once again no pop up. Go figure been with prime for 10 months first time I have been ever able to access music.
