Amazon Music Unlimited costs £7.99 to Prime members and £9.99 for non-Prime members, but you can try the service out for free for 30 days.

Sure 99p isn't quite as attractive as free, but that does hack a hefty £49 off the £49.99 RRP on the Echo Dot 3 (which, by the way, is on sale for £29.99 if you just want the device on its own).

It's undoubtedly a well-timed offer on Amazon's part, filling the void for anyone who missed out on Spotify's deal, while also enticing students to join the Prime ecosystem as the back to school season kicks off.

More interestingly, it provides a real incentive to sign up to Amazon Prime ahead of its Prime Day event, which is rumoured to happen in October this year.

Head to Amazon to check out its Echo Dot 3 deal right now. You can also sign up for a 30-day free trial of Amazon Prime to make the most of the offer.
