Annual Xbox Music Pass now comes with a free Lumia 520/521

Microsoft is giving away a contract-free Lumia 520 or 521 at no extra cost with the purchase of a 12-month Xbox Music Pass as part of a limited time promotion.

Customers can purchase the 12-month Xbox Music Pass for $99 and combine it with an AT&T Nokia Lumia 520 or a T-Mobile Nokia Lumia 521 from Microsoft's online or retail stores. The Lumia 520/521 smartphones combined have been the biggest selling Windows devices around the world and they generally cost around $120 off-contract, which makes this deal a great one as the combination would cost over 200 dollars. 

The specifications of these Windows Phone 8-based Lumias include a 4" IPS LCD display, 1 GHz dual-core Krait Snapdragon processor, 512MB of RAM, 8GB internal storage, which can be expanded using an SD card up to 64GB, 5 megapixel rear camera and 3G radios for AT&T or T-Mobile depending on the variant.

As part of the same offer, Microsoft has also included a collection of headsets from Skullcandy at a discounted price which can be added to the order. The offer will be available from the 3rd of February until the 17th of February for US citizens. It should be noted that offer is limited to one purchase per user.

Sadly, I can't take advantage of this. We are on the grandfathered Zune Pass that allows you to keep 10 tracks per month.

Still, an awesome deal. We have two 520s for the kids that are Wifi-only and they love them!

Two Microsoft Store reps both confirmed this will extend existing 'grandfathered' Zune Pass subscriptions (w/10 free songs per month).

My order is processing now -- I'll update this thread when I have the extension confirmed.

Cheers

They really should bring that "keep 10 songs/month" deal back. It was such a great deal... if they want to get more people to choose Xbox Music over the competition, this is one way to do it!

Sounds like I need to pay a visit to our local Microsoft store! Thanks for the heads up! I'll be watching for your update.

Should put this in the Headlines. Just got the Music pass for £89 and was already excited to ask for the 520 as well

The 520 really is an excellent phone too. I've been using one for a little while now, and the only thing I miss is a flash. I actually prefer it over the 920, the light weight and smaller size is preferable for me over the additional features the 920 offers.

I'd still prefer some physical buttons for start, back and search but that seems to be a relic of past phones now.

Still, if they did this music pass with free Nokia 520 in the UK, it'd sell very well indeed.

Well I bought a couple of 520 before Christmas on P4U and CPW when it was really cheap. I know the potential of the phone. But I cant wait for a decent replacement of my 920
