TL;DR: As of July 28, you can get a three-month Tidal HiFi subscription for only 99 cents (normally $19.99/month) if you sign up through Best Buy. After that period, you’ll pay just $14.99 a month to continue your membership.

From Gov Ball to Bonnaroo to Taylor Swift‘s bicoastal Lover Fest, this summer’s music festival season was a complete and total wash. And judging by the way people packed the Chainsmokers’ recent concert in the Hamptons, a forthcoming return to normal concerts definitely isn’t in the cards. (Come on, people.)

If you miss hearing your favorite artists strum and sing in person, Tidal has the next best thing: With a subscription to the streaming service’s “High Fidelity” (HiFi) tier, you get exclusive, ad-free access to losslessly compressed (FLAC) tracks that sound exactly as they did when they were recorded in-studio, and Master Quality Authenticated (MQA) tracks that sound exactly the way the artists want you to hear them. (Music compressed into an MP3 file sounds muddled in comparison to both, as it lacks the subtle details and sounds from its original recording.) It’s basically the next best thing to hosting a private concert in your living room.

Tidal HiFi subscriptions typically go for $19.99 a month — that’s $10 more than Spotify Premium and $5 more than an Apple Music Family plan. But get this: You can score three months of for just 99 cents if you sign up through with a My Best Buy account, and you’ll get every month thereafter for only $14.99.

Along with unlimited access to that high-quality streaming across multiple devices, a Tidal HiFi subscription also gets you access to exclusive artist content (like interviews, music videos, and backstage footage) and gives you priority status for concert ticket sales and Tidal X events, which will hopefully be a thing again soon. Plus, you’ll unlock the ability to stream expert- and artist-curated playlists, as well as create your own. (Go ahead and make one that’s just the original master of folklore‘s “betty” over and over and over, if you really want to — no judgment here.)
