Amazon has revealed that the price of its Music Unlimited subscription will be increasing. US customers who pay $9.99/month with start paying $10.99/month in February. Students on the discounted plan will now pay $5.99/month instead of $4.99/month. There’s no mention of the annual $89.99/year plan increasing, so signing up for that seems to be a good way to dodge the price increase, at least for the next year. The slightly cheaper price that Prime members pay already increased a few months ago, so that’s not changing again. The new prices go into effect on February 21.
The price increases aren’t limited to the US. Customers in the UK will go from paying £9.99/month to £10.99/month and students in the UK will go from paying £4.99/month to £5.99/month. German customers paying €9,99/month will see an increase to €10,99/month for the individual plan and go from €14,99/month to €16,99/month for the family plan. The student price in Germany is also increasing from €4,99/month to €5,99/month. Canada is seeing only the individual plan increase from $4.99/month to $5.99/month. Lastly, Japan will see prices for the individual, family, and student plans increase from ¥980, ¥1480, and ¥480 per month to ¥1080, ¥1680, and ¥580 per month, respectively. Oddly, Japan seems to be the only place where the annual plan is also increasing, from ¥14800 to ¥16800 per year. Customers in other regions, like Brazil, Mexico, Australia, and Italy had a price increase in November, so their prices are also remaining the same this time around.
