How much does it cost you to send an SMS message? 10p, 15p – 20p at most?
Or even less if you have a big chunck of free texts because you went crazy and ended up paying over the odds for a service you don’t need to get a better ‘free’ phone.
Now you can use one of those free texts to get yourself a ‘free’ song from the iTunes music store and it apparently also applies to the 99p DRM free tracks as well.
If you text “ROCK” or “POP” or “LIVE” or “ITUNES” to the short code 85100 within the next two days – you’ll be sent back a code you can use to ‘purchase’ a song on the iTunes store.
Thus saving yourself upwards of 60p – now the rules say you can only have one code per phone number but I’ve heard that people have used it to get more than one – in fact up to 20 so who knows.
Depends whether you like breaking the rules or not.
I can’t personally try it out as short codes don’t work in Jersey and as I use a Jersey mobile network they won’t work for me. But if you get it to work give me a shout.
Apparently the code has to be used by 30 September and I’m sure everybody already knows about this but me.
