How To Download Free Christmas Music — or Choose From Thousands of Other Songs — Legally

N ow that the Thanksgiving holiday has passed, Christmas is now on the minds of many people — and some of those old standards are starting to be played all over the world: White Christmas by Bing Crosby and Blue Christmas by Elvis Presley, to name only a couple of many.

You can download those songs for free — legally — as well as others, if you want. What’s that? You do not like Christmas music? No problem. You can download from your choice of dozens of Chanukah songs…

…or you can choose from literally thousands of other songs by artists such as the Andrew Sisters to Elton John to Florida Georgia Line from virtually any genre; and if you act now, you can still download up to 50 songs before the end of the year.

How To Download Free Christmas Music — or Choose From Thousands of Other Songs — Legally

Back in February — yes, February — of this year, I first told you about Free New Music Fridays with Marriott Rewards; and I have reminded you about this offer buried in articles pertaining to other topics between then and now.

Marriott International teamed up with Universal Music Group to give music downloads to you: one code is worth ten complimentary song downloads for your music playlist; and although the terms and conditions stated that the codes will be given away to the first 10,000 eligible members of the Marriott Rewards frequent guest loyalty program for a limited time, I downloaded yet another code earlier today. The code you will receive is case sensitive; and codes originally expired on Thursday, June 30, 2016; but that expiration date was extended to Saturday, December 31, 2016.

You are eligible for a new code every Friday. All you have to do is sign into your Marriott Rewards frequent guest loyalty program account — either through the official Internet web site of Marriott Rewards where I received my code; or via Facebook — or join if you are not already a member; and you are ready to add new songs to your playlist.

You must be a legal resident of — and physically located within — the 50 United States, the District of Columbia, and territories of the United States.

For the purpose of this promotion, song downloads from the massive catalog of Universal Music Group spans all of its labels — including Capitol Music Group, Interscope Records, Def Jam Recordings, Republic Records and Universal Music Group Nashville.

One very minor negative aspect to this offer is that the songs cannot be downloaded to portable electronic devices using the iOS system software; which means that you will need to download them onto a desktop computer or laptop computer. As I do that anyway with all songs which I obtain, that really is no big deal — I just simply transfer whichever songs I want with me onto my portable electronic devices as necessary.

Select Terms and Conditions

No exchanges or returns are permitted; and codes may not be redeemed or exchanged for cash. The number of song downloads available for each code may vary for each promotion. Any personal data relating to participants will be used solely in accordance with current data protection legislation and will not be disclosed to a third party — other than the agencies of the sponsor for the purpose of servicing or implementing the offer — without your prior consent.

Other terms and conditions apply.


At 320 kilobits per second, the songs are high quality for .mp3 format; and if you search carefully, you will find different and alternative versions of the same song. I personally have never had any problems downloading songs.

You can search for songs here without signing up or logging in. Although the search engine is not the most effective one I have ever used, it does work well; and you can listen to samples of music to help confirm your decision should you decide to download a song.

By the way, Friday is merely the threshold for you to qualify for a new code. You can get the code for that week anytime you want during the week — until the next Friday arrives, when a new code is available.

This has probably been one of the most underrated promotions of the year from Marriott Rewards; and if you qualify to participate and enjoy music, you should consider taking advantage of this offer before it is too late to do so.
