Amazon Music Unlimited is getting another price hike, and this one affects people who pay for the music service and Amazon’s Prime subscription.
The cost of Amazon Music Unlimited’s individual plan for Prime members will go up from $8.99 to $9.99 per month, according to Variety and The Hollywood Reporter. The price of the family plan is going up, too, increasing from $15.99 to $16.99 per month.
The costs of the annual plans for individuals that are Prime subscribers and families are increasing as well, each by $10, THR says. That means the annual individual plan will now cost $99 per year, while the family plan will cost $169 per year.
Amazon spokesperson Rebecca Silverstein confirmed the changes to The Verge. Silverstein also said that new customers will begin seeing the new price “plus applicable taxes” on Tuesday and that existing customers will see the new price on their first bill “on or after” September 19th. I’m now seeing the new prices on Amazon’s Music Unlimited pages.
The company increased the cost of Amazon Music Unlimited for people who don’t subscribe to Prime earlier this year. Many music services have gotten higher prices over the past several months, including Apple Music, Spotify, YouTube Premium, and Tidal.
Amazon last raised the annual price of Amazon Prime in February 2022.
Update August 16th, 12:37AM ET: Noted the new prices are now visible on Amazon’s website.
Correction August 16th, 12:37AM ET: There is no Amazon Music Unlimited family plan just for Prime subscribers; the price is going up for all Amazon Music Unlimited family plan customers. We regret the error.
