Apple has introduced Complete My Album, a new iTunes service that allows customers to turn individual tracks into a complete album at a reduced price. Essentially, that means 79 pence credit for every track you have previously purchased from that album.
“Music fans can now round out their music collections by upgrading their singles into complete albums with just one click, and get full credit for those songs they have previously purchased from iTunes,” said Eddy Cue, Apple’s vice president of iTunes. “Complete My Album is a wonderful new way that iTunes helps customers grow and enjoy their music collections.”
Complete My Album offers you 180 days after first purchasing individual songs from any qualifying album to purchase the rest of that album at a reduced price. When you buy any song on iTunes, the corresponding album will immediately appear on your Complete My Album page with the reduced price listed. For example, if you have already purchased three 79 pence singles and decides to buy the corresponding £7.99 album would be able to download the remaining songs to complete the album for £5.62, without having to buy the singles again.
Not exactly giving you anything free, but it does make album buying a little more appealing.
