Amazon Music’s Entire 100 Million Song Library Is Free for Prime Members
Are you already paying $139.99 or $15 a month for an Amazon Prime membership? We know you may have gotten it for that sweet two-Day Shipping, but did you know that it comes with a plethora of other benefits, too?
For the music lovers, this comes in the form of Amazon Music, with access to over 100 million songs, which you can access directly with the link above. Playing music with Prime is all ad-free, but Prime Music also offers ad-free podcasts, playlists and stations. If you are already an Amazon Prime member, then you have unlimited access to this perk, which means you may be able to ditch other apps or programs that you are paying for.
Amazon Music: A Prime Perk
While there is a free version of Amazon Music for non-Prime members, it appears to lack features that free versions of other music apps offer. For example, when looking to make a playlist on the free version, you become prompted with the following message: “Get 100 million songs, ad-free, with unlimited skips and offline listening. Terms apply.” The website also notes that playlists are only a part of the unlimited Prime version.
The FAQ page for Amazon Music also notes that you can shuffle play any artist, album, or playlist. Similar to other music programs, you can discover new music based on your likes, too. You are able to additionally pick and play any song on-demand from “All-Access Playlists”, which are playlists available for offline listening and do not have any skip limits.
Eligible Prime memberships that come with Prime Music access for free includes: the typical Amazon Prime membership, 30-Day Amazon Prime free trials and Amazon Prime Student memberships. (For the students out there, Prime Student is usually a steal, as it’s half the price of regular Amazon Prime, and comes with a free trial.)
If you are, however, interested in subscribing to Amazon Prime Music, but don’t really see yourself using much of the many perks of Amazon Prime, then you can do just that. You can try Prime Music for free for a month, then after that it currently costs $10.99 a month, which is the same price of Spotify Premium and Apple Music.
Other Amazon Prime Perks
Luckily, Amazon Prime comes with a multitude of other perks other than two-Day Shipping. For example, if you’re a big gamer then Amazon Prime comes with Prime Gaming which offers free games, free in-game items, and a free monthly twitch sub. There’s also Prime Video which gives you access to a library, especially of exclusive content like Invincible, The Man in the High Castle, and the Expanse. You can also get a year of Grubhub+ for free, and there’s plenty more benefits where that came from, just dive in and see what’s good for you.
