Giveaway: Win Slacker Radio premium for a year


Slacker Radio is one of our favorite streaming internet radio services for Android. Slacker Radio is a Pandora-like service that offers streaming of their ever-growing arsenal of songs and albums. Users can create radio stations based on a band, song, or genre, and listen to what they’re currently in the mood for at any given time.

Slacker Radio was kind enough to give us a few subscriptions to pass along to our readers. Up for grabs is one year-long subscription and two three-month subscriptions to Slacker Radio Premium, which provides unlimited song skipping and removes all ads from your stations.

All you have to do to win is leave a comment on this post no later than 3:00 PM CST on Tuesday, May 22nd. You will need either an active account or to leave your email in the appropriate field when leaving a comment in order to be considered for the giveaway so we can contact you if you’ve won.

Good luck!

Update: Winners have been selected and notified. Thanks to all who participated!

    I love Slacker – a few hiccups with their Android client but I just turn off automatic updates for it and let others shake it down for a few weeks before I update and I’m fine.

  • robotmaxtron

    Slacker is great, I’d love to get back to using it

  • Ian Gallimore

    Great! I love slacker.

  • Guest

    Is Slacker like the countless totally free locations where you can also get 1,000,000 of your favorite songs… without any charge???

    What a great giveaway!

  • Jason K.

    Slacker rocks!

    > All you have to do to win is leave a comment on this post

    So this is really just another phoney way of making androidandme (falsely) look like it has a lot of users… and a lot of (pointless) comments?

    Why not just make a much better SITE with much better ARTICLES… so that people really would like to read them???

    There’s a reason why this site is in the toilet:

  • Ian Nicholson

    Even with services like Spotify, I still like Slacker for their non-tedious radio experience. Hopefully they will address some of the issues with their Android app at some point, but it is great when it works.

    Does anyone know if this will apply even if I currently subscribe to Slacker through Verizon?

  • Román Ochoa

    I want in.

  • Bryant Hudson

    I would love to give Slacker another try.

  • Jonathan L

    Love Slacker on Android. The App updates over the last year has helped stability so much!

  • loobis

    I’m in.

  • jayfire2620

    SWEET! My free Slacker premium from starting an account just expired and I’m craving my no ad Slacker again… ah, yeah, thats the spot right there!

  • JAY

    I think i would really enjoy this premiem app on my phone …

  • erik knudsen


  • Troy Bauman

    Oh good lord! Me pleeaasse!!! I listen to slacker all day at work. I would absolutely love the premium version.

  • David

    Thank you!

  • Androided

    Going on vacation to see kids in Texas. There will be my kids, grandkids, inlaws, cooking, and checking the area for future relocation options, and hopefully some sleep. Need Slacker to keep me sane.

  • andystolemywallet

    Did you know:

    No skips left/commercial? Exit and restart. Try it when you have a skip left; you will regain skips quicker.

    I’m not gonna win. You might not either. But with this tip, every patient person is a winner.

  • MrCrusha829

    Yes have some!!!

  • Sven

    Please put my name into the virtual hat.

    I’ve loved slacker since the beginning, great selection and I also get it with my media streaming player

  • jeffb34

    If i win I would give them a try.

  • Baconator

    I love slacker and would really enjoy this!

  • Jason

    Slacked is by far the best streaming radio out there. Been using it for years now. You can creat radio stations based on your tastes but i find the pre created radio station for genre work just fine.

  • Steven G Golson

    Slacker is tha way too go.

  • cdstour

    Yes please!

  • Ant


  • tnnm

    I hear great things – I’d love to try it for a year. Would definitely be a way to get me to switch my subscription the following year.

  • SGB101

    Is this available to the peeps?

    • SGB101

      Sorry the UK peeps

  • ShoVah

    me please

  • Devion Reed

    I’ve tried it, and I love the “Favorites Station”, more than Rdio or Play, especially since Slacker works with Chrome better than Rdio does after its last update.

  • uurrk

    Would love to replace my pandora with this!

  • Felipe Gonzalez

    Pick me! Pick Me! I’ve been using slacker for almost 2 years now and love it!

  • Gene sigala

  • LukeT32

    Didn’t have much luck with slacker on my rooted Droid, so maybe it is time to give it a shot on my Gnex.

  • Shunter4044

    Sounds like a pretty sweet prize!

  • rev2redlineguy

    I’m a special needs educator and sometimes I use the music on my smartphone (SD card) and play them to the kids. They love hearing tunes like Kidz Bop, jazz, and even relaxation tunes. I think having Slacker Premium would be a benefit not only for me but for my kiddos. =-)

  • NegativeOne13

    Slacker Radio is the best… hands down.

  • aranea

    If I win I’ll give it a try. So far I have been using pandora.

    I know this might seem a bit off topic but I still don’t believe there’ll be a Nexus from each OEM by Thanksgiving.

    Slacker rocks, btw. Much better than Pandora, imho.

  • Burt Polson

    Would love to have premium!

  • Andrew

    Yes please to Slacker Premium.

  • Mike

    Wow! I gotta have one of those subscriptions!

  • Eitan Barzeski

    I love listening to the radio while I work. Slacker Radio would be perfect for me.

  • Lamar

    Maybe I’ll win something this time?

  • Sam in Austin

    Would love to upgrade to premium. I listen to in the car stereo (via Bluetooth) with my son and running (ther is not good internet access on the trail I run, though). Caching whole stations, 8 hours at a time, is what distinguishes Slacker Radio.

  • Kevin Amundson

    Since uploading my entire music library to Google Music, I haven’t used Pandora much because I really like listening to things I already know I like. I’d be willing to give this service a try though, especially for free. :)

  • C Schell

    Would love to win! Thanks Android & Me!

  • eggwolio

    Who’s got two armpits, no job, and a serious desire to win this? This guy! And probably some other guys and/or girls, but don’t give it to them. Give it to this guy! And by this guy, I mean, me. Just in case someone has registered the name “this guy.”

  • Kam_Pewter

    I’ve had Slacker for a while and never really used it. This week I got the Samsung official desktop dock for my GS2. Now when I dock my phone the sound immediately goes to my bose computer speakers, which has made Slacker my new go-to app.

    A free upgrade to premium would be one hell of a cherry on top!

  • Lavi
