Apple is offering a deep discount on its Apple Music subscription service, but you have to know how to find it to get it.

We can show you how.

There’s a menu hidden in the App Store app that offers an individual annual subscription to Apple Music for $99, TechCrunch reported on Monday. That’s nearly $21 less than what you’d pay over the course of a year with a typical $9.99 monthly subscription to the service. 

There’s one catch — you need to be an existing Apple Music subscriber. If you’re not a subscriber, you won’t see the $99 subscription option. So you’ll need to sign up for a single month of Apple Music before you sign up for the whole year. 

The discount could make Apple Music more enticing to consumers. Archrival Spotify doesn’t currently offer a discount for signing up for a whole year of its streaming service. Amazon sells its Music Unlimited subscription for $79 per year

Here’s how to find the Apple Music discount: 

Apple Music lets subscribers stream as much music as they like through apps available for iPhones, Macs, and Android.

Usually, these are the three price options Apple offers. But there’s a hidden way to find a $99 per year option, too.

The option can be found no in the Music app, but in the App Store app. Tap the “Featured” tab, then scroll all the way to the bottom of the page.

Once you get to the button of that page, click the button that show your Apple ID and email address. Then log in by typing your password or using your phone’s Touch ID sensor.

After you’ve logged in you’ll be on the Account Settings page. Tap on the button labeled “Subscriptions.”

On the next page, you can cancel your subscription, as well as sign up for the $99 one-year subscription offer.
