Amazon Prime members will still get a discount on Amazon Music — but starting today, they’ll have to pay a little more.

According to the Amazon Music website, effective Tuesday (Aug. 15), the company will raise the price of its premium, on-demand music subscription product from $8.99 to $9.99 per month, or $89 to $99 per year, for individual subscribers.

In addition, the price of the Amazon Music Unlimited Family Plan, which allows up to six family members per account, will increase from $15.99 to $16.99 per month, or $159 to $169 per year. In both instances, existing customers will pay the new price on their automatic monthly renewal starting Sept. 19. The higher prices will allow Amazon Music “[to] help us bring even more content and features,” its website says.

Amazon Prime costs an additional $14.99 per month and provides free order delivery, access to the Prime Video and Amazon Music streaming services and discounts on products and services, among other benefits.

Amazon last raised the price of Amazon Music Unlimited for Prime members in May 2022, increasing it from $7.99 to $8.99 per month or $79 to $89 per year for individuals. With the latest price increase, Prime members still receive a discount equal to $1 a month or $10 annually for Amazon Music Unlimited. The prices for non-Prime subscribers were raised in February to $10.99 per month. 

Music streaming subscription prices went mostly untouched for years before increasing at all major services in the last year. In October 2022, Apple raised its prices for Apple Music by $1 per month for individual subscribers, from $9.99 to $10.99 in the United States; and $2 per month for the family plan, from $14.99 to $16.99 per month. At the same time, it also increased the prices of Apple TV+ and Apple One, a bundle that includes Apple Music.

In July, YouTube hiked prices for YouTube Music, while Spotify raised the price of its individual subscription plan from $9.99 to $10.99 in the United States later in the month.
