One of the value added bonuses you’re privileged to with the purchase of a new Samsung Galaxy S5 is 6-months free music courtesy of Deezer. Well, in countries Deezer is supported, in any case. But it’s not immediately clear how you need to go about claiming this, especially since there’s no pre-installed app or mention of it in Galaxy Gifts. So here’s the run down.

The free subscription time does only apply to new accounts as you might expect. So, if you’re already a subscriber and don’t mind starting afresh, just set up a new account and you’ll be good to go.

The good news is that claiming your free time is really simple. It doesn’t matter whether you download the Deezer app from the Google Play Store or from Samsung Apps, either. When you fire Deezer up for the first time it recognizes that you’re using a Galaxy S5 and immediately offers you the sign-up path to get your free 6-months.

Follow the steps as in the screenshots above and you’ll be golden. You will need to enter your credit card information so that Deezer can automatically begin billing you after 6-months. So if you’re not going to want to do that, be sure to set yourself a reminder to cancel your account before that time.
