December is a stressful month for most as they tackle with long shopping lists, visiting relatives, and the cold snap. The only way we're getting through the trauma is our very generous "gifts for me" approach. To inspire, we've found the best jacket sale of the year at Columbia, the most impressive sale ever at Urban Outfitters, and more in today's list of five Editors' Choice deals that we found overnight and early this morning.
Google Play offers downloads of select rock MP3s for free. That's the best deal we could find for these songs. (Most are at least 99 cents at iTunes and Amazon.) Among the featured artists are Paramore, Fall Out Boy, Black Sabbath, and Motorhead.
Musician's Friend offers the Ibanez Electric Guitar in four colors, model no. GRG150MS, for $99.99 with free shipping. That's $257 off list and the best price we could find. It features a basswood body, maple neck, Powersound bridge and neck humbucker pickups with a Powersound single-coil middle pickup, and FAT 10 tremolo bridge.
Merchants must have caught on to the holiday spirit, because it's beginning to look a lot like free stuff everywhere we go. Today we've got six Editors' Choice freebie deals, just waiting to be snagged. From free gift cards to free music to free comic books, it looks like Christmas is coming a little earlier this year.
Musician's Friend offers the Danelectro Honeytone N-10 Guitar Mini Amp in four colors for $14.46 with free shipping. (Amazon offers it to Prime members in Burgundy or Aqua for the same price.) That's the lowest total price we could find by $8. It features volume, tone and overdrive controls, 9-volt battery, leather handle, and belt clip.
World Music Supply cuts up to 78% off a selection of DBZ guitars. Better yet, most orders over $100 score free shipping. That's the best discount we've seen for these items and puts many items at the lowest total prices we could find by significant margins.
Google Play offers downloads of its December Deals Playlist for free. That's the best deal we could find for these songs. (Most are at least 99 cents at iTunes and Amazon.) Among the featured artists are Led Zeppelin, Maroon 5, Madonna, Skrillex, and Drake.
The Amazon MP3 Store offers downloads of the 100 Must-Have Classical Christmas Concertos MP3 Album for $1.09. That's the lowest price we could find for this 100-track, DRM-free holiday album, released in October. (iTunes charges $5.99.) Amazon MP3 Downloader is required.
PayPal offers a $25 iTunes Code for $21.25. That's $4 off and the lowest total price we could find, although we saw it for $2 less last week. The codes are valid only at the U.S. iTunes Store, and the offer expires December 13.
Amazon Local offers a coupon for $3 off downloads of select holiday albums from the Amazon MP3 Store. (The code will be automatically applied to your cart.) Choose from ten holiday albums, with prices starting at $2 (after coupon). That's the lowest price we could find by at least $3. Amazon MP3 Downloader is required. Deal ends December 22. A couple best bets, with prices after coupon:

Google Play offers downloads of the December Antenna Sampler MP3 Album for free. That's tied with last month's mention of a different set of songs and the best deal we could find for this 13-track, DRM-free album. It features music from Minor Alps, Blood Orange, and Weekend Nachos. (iTunes and Amazon charge 99 cents or more for most of these tracks.)
Gilt City offers a free60-day trial of the Spotify Premium music streaming service. That's a savings of $20 and tied with our mention from last month as the lowest price we've seen. It features offline access to playlists, no advertisements, and more. You must cancel the subscription before the trial is over or you will be billed for one month of service, currently $9.99.
