Can my purchase yield a discount on the purchase of another music product?

There can be no contesting or incentives to the consumer to buy music in return for  — or a chance to win access to — goods or experiences (whether virtual or actual), benefits or discounts of any kind. For the sake of clarity, the purchase of a music product (album, single, song/track, etc.) cannot yield a discount on the purchase of another music product.
