How to cancel Amazon Music subscription without paying $5.99 per month
The cost of Amazon Music subscriptions is going to rise to $5 a month in a bid to cut the number of people paying for it.
Amazon announced on Monday that its annual subscription will rise to just $49.99, up from $49 a year ago, from $79.99.
That is also up from the $99 a year Amazon Music service had previously offered.
While the change means that Amazon Music subscribers will be paying $7.99 a month on top of the existing $7/month, it doesn’t mean that Amazon will actually stop people from using the service.
In fact, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos has indicated that Amazon plans to continue selling the service even if it becomes a subscription.
“We are going to continue to sell it,” Bezos told the Wall Street Journal.
“We’re not going to stop it.”
The reason for this change is to cut down on churn.
Amazon’s chief financial officer, David Marcus, said during the company’s earnings call last month that the subscription will eventually be a $7 per month plan.
Amazon is also introducing new features in the service, such as a new “subscribe” button for people who have already subscribed to the service but want to cancel it.
“There is no question that the new pricing model is designed to reduce churn,” Marcus said at the time.
“Amazon Music has seen unprecedented growth in subscribers in the last year, and our goal is to continue that momentum by lowering the cost of our subscription to encourage people to subscribe.
We are also working to create a free-to-air streaming service in the coming months.”
The subscription will only be offered on Amazon Prime members, which includes unlimited Prime Video streaming and $99 per year of Prime Air.
But it will still be possible to buy Amazon Music through the company.
For its part, Amazon is taking a different approach than other major music services, such the iTunes Music Store.
The company has made changes to its pricing, which is the biggest change from the current model.
Amazon Music will remain free on iOS devices, and will be available for $9.99 on Android devices, as well.
