Amazon makes entire 100 Million track music library free without ads for Prime Members, but with one important caveat

Amazon has announced that the entire Amazon Music library of over 100 million tracks is now free to stream ad-free for Prime members. That’s a massive increase from the 2 million tracks that Prime members had access to prior to this change. Before you go canceling your music subscriptions, the catch is that you can’t request songs individually, but must, instead, request artists, albums, or playlists in shuffle mode to hear the expanded library without an Amazon Music Unlimited subscription.

Amazon has been offering One Week Trials of Amazon Prime for $1.99 to former Prime members

It’s not entirely clear when the practice started, but Amazon is offering select former Prime members the option to start a “One Week Trial” of Amazon Prime for $1.99. Since the dawn of the program, Amazon has offered a 30-day free trial of Prime to first-time subscribers, but once those 30 days are up or once a customer doesn’t renew their subscription, the only option has been to pay the full annual price, which is currently $119 per year, or a monthly price, which is currently $12.99 per month. This appears to be the first time Amazon has offered a one week option for Prime membership. Read more ›

Amazon now offers discounted Prime Membership to Medicaid recipients

Amazon has launched a low-cost version of Prime for customers enrolled in Medicaid, the government program providing health insurance to low-income Americans. Medicaid recipients can subscribe to Prime for $5.99 per month, which is less than half the usual monthly price of $12.99. At about $72 annually, it’s also less than the regular $99 annual price. To qualify for the discount, go to amazon.com/qualify and upload a photo of either your Medicaid card or EBT. This program provides most of the same benefits as a regular Prime membership, including free two-day shipping, Prime Video, Prime Music, and more. One difference is customers enrolled in the discounted program cannot share their benefits with another adult like the regular membership allows. Customers must requalify once a year and can only receive the discount for the first four years.

Amazon is now bundling Prime membership with the purchase of a Fire Tablet

Amazon is no stranger to offering discounts by bundling multiple devices together, but now they’re bundling Prime membership with their devices. You can now buy the Fire HD 8 tablet bundled with 3 months of Prime for $89.22.

Amazon Prime monthly membership fee is increasing by 18%

Starting today, Amazon is increasing their monthly membership fee for Amazon Prime from $10.99 to $12.99, according to Recode. That’s an increase of 18% and works out to $156 per year if you’re paying monthly. Prime Student’s monthly fee is also increasing from $5.49 to $6.49. The annual membership fee of $99 for Amazon Prime is not increasing. Neither is the $8.99 per month fee for just Prime Video. If you’re subscribed to Amazon Prime on a monthly basis for more than 7 months out of the year, it now makes more sense to switch to the annual membership.
