Amazon Music Unlimited permanently drops to $0.99 a month for Prime Student members
We're not talking about some sort of an extended Amazon Music Unlimited trial here, mind you, but a permanent discount from $7.99 to $0.99 a month. That's right, you can now get unlimited access to a library of more than 50 million songs and thousands of curated playlists and stations by paying under a buck every 30 days.
Obviously, this insane promotion is not for everyone, and you need to meet a few very specific requirements to qualify for it. You can't just sign up for an Amazon Music Unlimited subscription alone, as you'll first have to be a Prime member. And not just any sort of Prime member. Instead, you'll need to join Amazon's Prime Student program, which will cost you $6.49 a month to begin with.
On the bright side, new subscribers can get a 6-month trial before starting to pay the $6.49 a month. Even better, the $0.99 Music Unlimited add-on is available for existing Prime Student members as well. Of course, the $7.48 a month you'll need to cough up for Prime perks and Music Unlimited streaming exceeds the normal cost of an Apple Music or Spotify subscription for students. But Amazon also offers way more value here, including Prime Video streaming, a whole bunch of delivery benefits, and exclusive discounts on popular products.
Clearly, the e-commerce giant badly wants to chip away at the subscriber numbers of Apple Music and Spotify, trying everything in its power to attract the crowds at any cost. And if you're already an Amazon Prime Student user, it's hard to turn down this unbelievable opportunity to stream music on any device almost free of charge.
