Amazon Music Unlimited faces tough competition against Spotify and Apple Music.
As Amazon is wont to do, the service is battling its competitors by slashing prices. A student subscription to Amazon Music Unlimited now costs $6 for six months.
After that crazy cheap $1-a-month deal ends, students will pay $4.99 a month.
That’s the same as Spotify and Apple Music’s student rates, which are also $4.99 a month. Those services, though, don’t have the six-month promo that costs nearly nothing to get students to subscribe in the first place.
Subscribing to these music streaming services usually costs around $9.99 a month. Amazon Music Unlimited, which launched last October, offers a discounted $7.99 a month membership to Amazon Prime members.
A lot of students already have Prime, since there’s a hefty half-price discount for students.
Amazon wouldn’t have slashed prices to $1 a month if it weren’t trying to steal away some of Spotify’s 60 million subscribers.
Amazon says its new deal is available for a limited time only, so if you want to make the switch, get subscribing.
