Microsoft launches Zune Affiliate Program, now you can earn money for pushing the Zune Pass

Zune_affiliate

Perhaps in a way to help spread the benefits of having a Zune Pass in a little more of a viral way, there is now a Zune Affiliate program available. In short, the program will pay you for selling the Zune Pass. According to the details, you will get "recurring payouts" and "high commissions." Basically, it looks like all you will need to do is fill out a short application to begin.

Honestly, I am not sure this would be enough to get many people rich, or even consider a job, but at the same time the money you earn could at least support your music listening habit. Even if all you earned was enough to cover the monthly cost for your Zune Pass. Seems to me, this is worth signing up for, after all I already try and get my friends to sign up for a Zune Pass, may as well get something back in return.

Twitter has arrived on the Zune HD

Twitter_logo_header As promised, the Twitter app for the Zune HD has been released and is now available for anyone, well everyone with a Zune HD to download. The app is available for free, and does not appear to have the same pre-roll ads that we saw with the games.

Personally, I can live without Twitter on my Zune HD, despite being an active Twitter user, but I would love to hear from anyone that is planning to use it.

In addition to the app release, the Zune Team is also running a contest that could result in you winning a prize. In order to enter the contest, you will need to follow @Zune on Twitter and tweet;

"Twitter for Zune HD is here! Tweet from your Zune HD and win free prizes!"

Just make sure you send that message to @Zune and of course, you need to do that from your Zune HD.

At this point we now have the Twitter app and the 3D games. I guess we are just waiting on the Facebook app at this point. And again, I can skip that one also. Sorry for any lack of enthusiasm but I tend to think of my Zune HD as more of a media player -- music, podcasts and video.

Best Buy offering an in-store Zune HD event on December 13, 2009

It looks like Best Buy is going to offering another in-store event for the Zune HD. The event will be taking place on December 13, 2009, but unfortunately will be limited to a select group of stores. That said, if you live close to one, it seems like it may be worth while to check out.

According to the Facebook announcement, the stores will have "free Zune giveaways (hats, t-shirts, stickers, buttons, and posters) and will also be having people on hand to demo the device and answer questions."

Personally, I would head on over just to get a Zune sticker, yup its silly, but I have supported the Zune for a while now and they are one of the few products that I have never come across a sticker for. But sadly, the closest location for me is about 4-5 hours away -- certainly not worth the drive for some free swag.

Anyway, hit the link below for the complete list of Best Buy locations that will have the Zune HD event on December 13.

Buy a Zune HD and get a free one month Zune Pass

Free_month_zune_pass_450

For a limited time, you can purchase a Zune HD and get one month to enjoy a Zune Pass for free.

This offer does come with a few catches though, so pay attention. To begin with, the Zune HD must be purchased at Best Buy. And on top of that, you will need to print out the above coupon an present it to the cashier upon checkout. Finally, the offer is valid until January 2, 2010.

But hey, if you were planning on giving the gift of a Zune HD this holiday season -- what better way than to give it with a free month Zune Pass included.
