Amazon just started a new promotion that gives new subscribers to Amazon Music Unlimited a free $10 credit to use towards the subscription cost. To receive the credit, click the “Add gift card or promotion code” button on the promotion’s page and enter the promo code AMAZONMUSIC. Then sign up for any of the Amazon Music Unlimited subscription options. After your 30-day free trial ends, you’ll have $10 worth of credit in your account that will be automatically applied to your subscription dues. If you’re a Prime member, the best bang for your buck option is the $79/yr plan. With the free $10 credit, that comes to just $5.75 per month, which is almost half what most other streaming music subscriptions cost.
Amazon has just started a promotion for the Black Friday weekend where you will earn a $20 credit to use toward an Amazon Music Unlimited subscription for buying any physical CD or Vinyl. If you’re a Prime member, that means you can use the $20 credit and get a 12 month subscription for $59, or just $4.92 per month. If you have a Echo, Echo Dot, or Tap speaker, you could use the $20 credit for 5 free months of music on your device with the Echo-only $3.99 per month plan, not counting the initial free trial month. A good place to start shopping are Amazon’s Black Friday Deals in CD & Vinyl. This offer ends at midnight tonight and is for both new or existing Amazon Music Unlimited customers.
When Amazon Music Unlimited launched last month, it was missing the option to share a single subscription among several family members. That option is now available with the arrival of family plans for Amazon Music Unlimited. For $14.99 per month, which is $5 more than the individual plan, you can share your music subscription with up to 6 family members. If you’re a Prime member, you also have the option to save $30 by paying $149 per year.
Amazon’s new premium music streaming service, called Music Unlimited, is now available in the UK, Germany, and Austria. The service launched a month ago in the US but is now available overseas. Pricing is identical to that in the US, but just in the respective country’s currency. Non-Prime members will pay £9.99/9,99€ per month. Prime members will pay £7.99/7,99€ per month but also have the option to pay £79/79€ annually. Amazon is also offering the Echo-only plan overseas for £3.99/3,99€ per month, but remember, that only allows access on a single device.
Amazon Music Unlimited, the new stand-alone music streaming service from Amazon, launched this morning with an enticing $3.99 per month option for Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, and Amazon Tap owners. The catch though is that the $3.99 plan can only be used from a single device. That doesn’t mean a single device at a time, but rather, it literally means only a single Echo, Echo Dot, or Tap can access the Amazon Music Unlimited library. Read more ›
Amazon has launched their long-rumored new music streaming service. As I discovered last week, it’s called Amazon Music Unlimited and has several different pricing options. For those of you who are not Prime members the service is $9.99 per month. There is a family plan for $14.99 per month or $149 per year, which will be available soon, that grants access to 6 family members. These prices are equal to competing services like Apple Music, Spotify, and Google Play Music. The pricing gets more interesting and competitive for Prime member who can pay either $7.99 per month or $79 per year, which comes out being about $6.58 per month. There is also an Echo-only plan for just $3.99 per month that grants access to the new music service from Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, and Amazon Tap devices only. Regardless of which payment option you select, the library of music accessible to you is exactly the same. Read more ›
Inspired by my confirmation of a soon to be released new streaming music subscription service from Amazon, called Amazon Music Unlimited, a German blogger by the name of Carsten Knobloch looked through the code of Amazon’s web-based music player and uncovered a few pieces of new information about the service. It appears the service will have a regular price of $9.99 per month. Knobloch also found reference to a $7.99 discounted price which, through some additional digging of my own, I’m confident is the price for Prime members. I also found reference to “alternative” pricing, but I’m not sure on the details of that pricing. It may refer to the rumored Echo-only plan which restricts music playback to Amazon Echo devices. Sources have told The Verge that the Echo-only plan will cost $4.99 per month and launch “within a few weeks.” Read more ›
Amazon is rumored to be working on a new streaming music subscription service, separate from Prime Music, to compete with the likes of Spotify, Apple Music, and Google Play Music. After noticing an unusual lack of “Prime” branding in the new Amazon Music app for the Fire TV, I began to suspect the app was released this week in preperation for the rumored new music service from Amazon. I did some digging through the app’s code, as I am often inclined to do, and have found clear evidence that Amazon will indeed be launching a new premium streaming music service called Amazon Music Unlimited.
