Apple giving away holiday playlist in Apple Store app

Apple is giving away a holiday playlist from the Apple Store app for iPhone. Called Holiday Cheer, the playlist consists of eight holiday classics including Silent Night, Joy to the World, and Silent Night. Artists include Kelly Clarkson, Nick Lowe, and Mary J Blige.

To get the songs for free, open the Apple Store app on your iPhone, then scroll down until you find Holiday Cheer. When the screen pops up telling you about the playlist, tap the button that says "Download now for free" to be sent to the iTunes Store app. You'll be taken to the Redeem page, where a code will have appeared at the bottom of the scree. Simply hit Redeem, and your songs will begin downloading. You can take advantage of the offer through December 31, 2013, and the offer is only available in the iPhone app, not the recently released iPad app.

Apple has previously used the Apple Store app to give away select apps, beginning with Color Zen back in August. You can download the Apple Store app right now from the App Store.
