Giveaway: Win a 3-month Slacker Premium Subscription


There are a plethora of options out there when it comes to listening to streaming music on your Android devices. One of our staff favorites has been Slacker Radio, which allows users to create custom radio stations based on a song or artist that you like.

We’ve partnered with Slacker Radio to give three lucky Android and Me readers three free months of Slacker Radio Premium. All you have to do is leave a comment on this post by noon CST tomorrow, November 18th to be entered to win.

You’ll need to leave your email address in the appropriate field so we can contact you if you’ve won. If you haven’t already, you can make this process easier on yourselves by signing up for an And Me account if you haven’t already.

Slacker Premium Deets

Slacker Premium combines music discovery (Slacker or Pandora) with on-demand (like Spotify). It gives subscribers on-demand access to Slacker’s music library in addition to ad-free customizable radio. Here are some things you can do with Slacker Premium:

  • Search and listen to specific songs or albums
  • Cache radio stations, albums and playlists to your smartphone so you can listen without a connection (better battery life, no data usage and uninterrupted playback)
  • Create playlists by typing in songs or by adding them while you listen to Slacker Radio stations
  • Share playlists
  • View and listen to real-time “top 50″ charts for all Slacker genres based on listener and Slacker DJ interaction
  • Listen to an artist-specific station that will only play songs from a specific artist or band (i.e. Michael Jackson, Jimi Hendrix etc..)
  • Add customizable ESPN sports updates to your stations

  • Bruce

    Slacker is so great! I use it all the time, at the gym, at home and at work!

  • Tom

    Please include me……..

  • Jason Ellingson

    If I win, I want the Slacker Plus subscription instead. The Premium, while very nice, locks your account to JUST ONE DEVICE, even with caching. Other devices are kicked off when you log in. My wife and I enjoy sharing the Plus service on our respective XOOM’s. You can share by caching stations on your devices (each device can have its own unique cached stations).

    I love slacker radio, its the only player that I will listen to. Slacker is way better than Pandora. I love the radio stations that you can pick and listen to. I always and will always reccommend Slacker Radio to anybody I talk to.

    To be honest….. Slacker is the best radio out there that I have came across. I was a big Pandora listener, but I tried out Slacker…. and let me tell you, it’s worth it. When I would listen to Pandora, I would get all sorts of random songs of totally different genre playing. Slacker, I can pick a station a expect songs I enjoy. Or pick an artist and play the whole collection of the artist. OR!!!! Even select an album, and listen to the entirety of the album. I would suggest people who have not checked out Slacker…. to check it out. It is worth your time, and worth making your ears happier.

    P.S. My premium membership is actually do up tomorrow (18th) so I could really use another 3 months free. :D

    premo here we come.

    I’d like to win because I looooove Slacker! I am a Plus member. I tried Premium for a while and loved it, but $10 per month is tough. If they’d partner with Sonos, I’d do it in a heartbeat. They’re the only major player that’s not on Sonos; why is that?

  • Sterling Howell

    I can haz freee Slacker?!

  • jwier

    Woot! Thanks for this chance! Much appreciated and I love Slacker!

  • Damian56x

    Hope that I get “lucky” too, but a year would be far more legit, since only 3 months reminds me of being somewhat like…uhh…shareware or a “trial” period, since when over its gonna be much hard(er) not wanting to pay for the premium service, since the winners will want to keep enjoying it, and being that I am diabled and dependent upon a fixed income, continuing a paid subscription may well become too much of a strain on my monthly budget.

    I had to buy one of the cheapest Android smartphones that I could afford, b/c my spouse who is unemployed, discovered that she loves to text, but she won’t use the “free” Gmail SMS service , since its too inconvenient for her to logon to our PC and text her friends online. We had a prepaid tracfone previously but she was costing us over $70.00 per month to refill it, even with my getting double minutes for life AND using “promo” codes on the Tracfone. The Metro PCS service is cheaper @ $53 per month with unlimited texting.
