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!

    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.

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

  43. Ian GallimoreGuest 3 years ago

    Great! I love slacker.

    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!

  45. Jason K.Guest 3 years ago

    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:

  47. HeathGuest 3 years ago
  48. Ian NicholsonGuest 3 years ago

    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?

  49. Román OchoaGuest 3 years ago

    I want in.

  50. Bryant HudsonGuest 3 years ago

    I would love to give Slacker another try.

  51. Jonathan LGuest 3 years ago

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

  52. 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!

  53. JAYGuest 3 years ago

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

  54. I’ll throw my hat into the ring…I always need something to listen to when I am slacking.

  55. Troy BaumanGuest 3 years ago

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

  56. benGuest 3 years ago

    hell yea!!! cant wait to get rid of pandora

  57. I’d love to give Slacker another try.

  58. Throw my name in the hat.

  59. DavidGuest 3 years ago

    Thank you!

  60. AndroidedGuest 3 years ago

    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.

  61. 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.

  62. MrCrusha829Guest 3 years ago

    Yes have some!!!

  63. SvenGuest 3 years ago

    Please put my name into the virtual hat.

  64. I’m in………….

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

  66. If i win I would give them a try.

  67. BaconatorGuest 3 years ago

    I love slacker and would really enjoy this!

  68. JasonGuest 3 years ago

    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.

  69. Steven G GolsonGuest 3 years ago

    Slacker is tha way too go.

  70. AntGuest 3 years ago


  71. 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.

  72. Is this available to the peeps?

  73. ShoVahGuest 3 years ago

    me please

  74. Devion ReedGuest 3 years ago

    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.

  75. Would love to replace my pandora with this!

  76. Felipe GonzalezGuest 3 years ago

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

  77. Gene sigalaGuest 3 years ago

    I listen. Slacker radio on my dinc2. Show me some love for premium. Slacker radio I play it none stop on my evenings and days off. Great app.

  78. Alex MorganGuest 3 years ago

    I would love to win this.

  79. RickGuest 3 years ago

    Dumped XM over two years ago for Slacker. The portable unit is Plug and play on my motorcycle. You have a lifetime member regardless.

  80. totalslackerGuest 3 years ago

    Oh please pick me :-)

  81. doseasGuest 3 years ago

  88. Brad WilletGuest 3 years ago

    Slacker is great, but the Android app is terrible at dealing with spotty data (aka Sprint)

  89. Internet Radio w/o adds…count me in!!

  90. ray rodriguezGuest 3 years ago

    Thanks for great radio i hope it gets updates with ics ui..

  91. ChrisGuest 3 years ago

  92. AaronGuest 3 years ago

    I love Slacker!

  93. GeorgeGuest 3 years ago

    That would be so nice!

  94. David M.Guest 3 years ago

    I will gladly be your winner = )

  95. I guess I’ll take it if you don’t want it.

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

  97. Sounds like a pretty sweet prize!

  98. 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. =-)

  99. Slacker Radio is the best… hands down.

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

  101. GavmanGuest 3 years ago

    Me! Pick me!

  102. Oh pick me! I love slacker radio just it is so expensive.

  105. Tc BattleGuest 3 years ago

    I’d love to win!

  106. TravisGuest 3 years ago
  107. 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.

  108. Burt PolsonGuest 3 years ago

    Would love to have premium!

  109. AndrewGuest 3 years ago

    Yes please to Slacker Premium.

  110. MikeGuest 3 years ago

    Wow! I gotta have one of those subscriptions!

  111. Eitan BarzeskiGuest 3 years ago

    It would be awesome to win. I have around 15 tech sites bookmarked, but when i dont feel like opening all of them, i always open also, when i DO open all of them, i always save this site for last. i hope you take me into consideration! thanks

  112. omarGuest 3 years ago

    I wanna win so bad I don’t have much music on my phone and I love slakerradio

  113. Ashley BuenoGuest 3 years ago

    Would love to win this

  114. It’s called Slacker, but once I plug my phone into my stereo, I become very productive.

  115. wow, please count me in for this giveaway! Thanks in advance… :-)

  116. I use slacker 5 days out of the week most Weeks at work. Would love the premium account. How I win. Thanks Androidandme!

  117. DanielGuest 3 years ago

    I need something better than Rhapsody!

  118. NathanGuest 3 years ago

    Slacker radio is hands down the best music app available

  119. So yeah (akward pause with hand extended out) how about that Slacker radio…

  120. I love Slacker! premium would be awesome!

  121. Billy BrownGuest 3 years ago

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

  122. LamarGuest 3 years ago

    Maybe I’ll win something this time?

  123. Sam in AustinGuest 3 years ago

    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.

  124. 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. :)

  125. C SchellGuest 3 years ago

    Would love to win! Thanks Android & Me!

  135. Brian CurskiGuest 3 years ago

    I’m a fan of the free Slacker at work, and was planning on getting the Premium for at least a little while on my families ten day road trip through the west this summer. Thanks for the chance!

  136. MatthewGuest 3 years ago

  143. EdGuest 3 years ago

    I listen to slacker radio(my customized station) even when I’m sitting on the toilet. Sure would love premium to replay some of my fab songs or keep skipping those that I don’t like. I don’t care about the ads. I just wanna be able to use the features that comer with slacker radio premium.
    Thanks android and me

  169. EricGuest 3 years ago

  170. Mmmm.. Slacker :) Count me in on this one.

  171. CarlGuest 3 years ago

    I’ve been using Slacker since back when they sold their own mp3/internet device.

  172. Been a big fan of Slacker for a while, its a part of my every day, whether I am working in my company’s refurb warehouse, or on the car headed to the beach for a bbq!

  173. 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.”

  185. 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!

  186. LaviGuest 3 years ago
