Spotify is giving away Chromecast Audio devices
If you sign up for Spotify premium and prepay for 3 months, Spotify will give you a Chromecast Audio for free.
This offer isn't available to me, I assume because I've taken advantage of previous Spotify premium offers, but if you haven't tried Spotify premium, this might be the time to do so.
Chromecast Audio allows you to stream audio from your phone to any speakers through your wifi connection. Basically you setup your Chromecast Audio by connecting a power source and a 3.5mm headphone cable between the Chromecast and your speakers. This allows your speakers to become wireless like Sonos and you can press a button on your phone and stream music to the speakers over wifi.
Chromecast Audio normally costs $35 so you're saving $5 and getting 3 months of Spotify premium at the same time.
If you've ever wanted to stream music from your phone to your home stereo system while you're moving around your house, you could really benefit from a Chromecast Audio. Additionally, if you've ever wondered what streaming music service is worth your $10/month, Spotify is a very solid choice. They don't have every song from every musician but they have almost every one of them.
