Pandora has one great thing that the other services don’t, which is Pandora Stories, which is a good 30~minutes of your favorite artists telling you the stories behind their songs. They’re enjoyable enough that you’ll want to listen to them more than once! Typically you hear each song after the artist spends some time speaking about it. Pandora Stories are available for a wide variety of artists and genres. Pandora Stories are also available for artists from an array of countries.

Pandora offers free, plus($4.99/month) and premium plans($9.99/month). With Pandora Premium, you can listen to ad-free personalized music, search and play whatever you want, enjoy your favorite podcasts, make and share playlists, enjoy unlimited skips and unlimited offline listening.

Option 2 Pandora Premium 1-Month Subscription for $1

BestBuy offers Pandora – Premium Music, 1-Month Subscription for only $1, Auto-renews at $9.99 per month. This is an extremely low price for a one~month subscription to Pandora Premium! If you already have an active Pandora Premium subscription, you can still buy this but the activation/subscription period for the new one overlaps/begins on the purchase date & doesn’t just add more to the end of the existing (don’t forget to cancel the old one).

If you enjoy free premium music sound and the platform of Pandora, this is a great offer! If you decide only to use the offer during the Free timeframe, make sure the Auto-Renewal is turned off before your free offer expires.
