See Tickets has partnered with Amazon to offer See customers a free subscription to Amazon Music Unlimited.

Until 2 November, purchasing a ticket using Amazon Pay will entitle the buyer to a three-month subscription to Amazon’s music streaming service, which the company says has a library of 50m songs.

After completing payment with Amazon Pay – a digital payments platform competing with the likes of Apple Pay and Google Play – a code for Amazon Music Unlimited will appear on the bottom of the ticket confirmation email.

According to MIDiA Research, Amazon Music Unlimited – usually £9.99/$9.99 a month – has a global streaming marketshare of 12%, behind Spotify (36%) and Apple Music (19%) but ahead of China’s Tencent Music (8%), Deezer (3%) and Google Play Music (3%).

Amazon was briefly a competitor to See Tickets in the UK market, before its fledgling Amazon Tickets business was wound up in February.
