New perk for Amazon Prime members: Prime Music

As you know, back in March, Amazon dropped a blockbuster on its members by announcing that they were raising the price of a Prime membership from $79 to $99.  Since then, the topic of "is it worth it?" has been the subject of heated debate among online shoppers.

Amazon just announced the launch of a new Prime membership perk:  Prime Music.  It works largely the same way as Prime Video:  you can stream any number of Prime Music songs on to your computer, phone, tablet, etc. with no ads or pop-ups, for free.   This will probably supplant a lot of Rhapsody, Spotify and Pandora paid on-demand music streaming memberships, the same way that Prime Video replaced many Netflix memberships.   You can set up a personalized playlist or use one that was already created by Amazon.  As long as you are online, you've got tunes.

What do I think? I had already planned on sticking with my Prime Membership, even though I wasn't overly thrilled about the price hike. Given my family's buying habits, I think Prime Membership is well-worth it for us and probably pays for itself within the first two months.  As far as this new perk, I'm going to get my husband to cancel his Rhapsody membership and use the new service, so I couldn't be more pleased.   We have made very good use of Prime Video (we watched the entire Downton Abbey series for free on Prime Video) and I think we're going to enjoy this new perk as well.

If you're not a Prime member yet, come on over to the Dark Side for a month for free. You can start your Amazon Prime 30-day trial over here.  If you don't think it's worth the money, you can always cancel it before the 30 days are up and pay nothing, or if you like it, you can go ahead and stay with the membership.

If you're already a Prime member, enjoy your new Prime Music perk.  Let me know what you think.
