Amazon's Giving Away Free Music in Exchange For Longer Delivery Times

Some of us have to have everything right now. Others couldn't give a crap if their new DVD turned up this week or next. Starting today, Amazon is rewarding its Prime users by offering free music store credit in exchange for longer shipping times.

At the check-out, Prime member just have to select "FREE No-Rush Shipping." That give Amazon a full 5-7 days to get your purchases to you. Which seems, like, forever. But, when the items ship you get a $1 credit to spend on music at the Amazon MP3 Store. The credit has to be used up by January 31 2012.

Seems like a good deal, and there's plenty of time to use it before the holidays, too. Just don't leave it too late, or you'll be handing out New Year presents, not Christmas ones. [Amazon; Image: MikeBlogs]
