Last week, Verizon announced that it would be giving away six free months of Apple Music to customers on its Unlimited plan, and now it goes into effect. Anyone on one of Verizon’s three ambiguously-named unlimited plans — that’s Go Unlimited, Beyond Unlimited, and Above Unlimited! — can get six free months of Apple Music.

Best of all, it’s not a trial that’s limited to people that don’t already use Apple Music. If you’re a current or lapsed Apple Music subscriber, you get six free months of service, which at $8.99 a month, adds up to some worthwhile savings.

To immediately begin your free six months, follow these steps:

On the web: Visit vzw.com/applemusic
On mobile: Open the My Verizon app, go to account, and then Add-ons. Up top (where it says Your Add-ons, Peace of Mind, and Essential Services), swipe left and you’ll see the Entertainment category. That’s where the Apple Music deal can be found.
Choose the line you want to associate the free trial with — each unlimited line on your account can independently redeem the offer — and go through a few confirmation screens.
When you confirm the last one, Verizon will send you a text confirming the immediate start of your six-month trial.

That text will contain a link to applemusic.com/carrier. Open this on your phone. You’ll get bounced over to the Apple Music app, which automatically validates that you’ve signed up for the deal with Verizon. Tap “continue” on the screen below and you’ll be prompted to enter your iTunes / App Store password.

That’s it! If you’re new to Apple Music (or rejoining), you’ll go through the onboarding process of choosing your favorite genres and artists.
