3 Ways to Get Amazon Music Unlimited at a Discount

Ben Stegner 26-03-2018

You have several music streaming services to choose from, but if you’re ingrained in Amazon’s ecosystem, it makes sense to try Amazon Music Unlimited. Unfortunately, the full-price subscription may be tough to justify.


We’ll show you a few quick ways to save on an Amazon Music Unlimited subscription. (Note that this isn’t the same thing as Amazon Prime Music Amazon Music Unlimited vs. Prime Music: What's the Difference? In this article, we take a look at Prime Music and Amazon Music Unlimited to help you determine which one is right for you.

1. Take Advantage of the Student Plan

If you’re a college or university student (you must verify enrollment), you can get Music Unlimited at $5/month, which is half price. This doesn’t require that you have Amazon Prime either!

Check out the Music Unlimited Student page for more details.

Along with Amazon, take a look at other discounts you can get with your EDU email address.

2. Split the Bill With a Family Plan

If you know any others who are interested in using the service, you can save a lot of money by setting up an Amazon Music Unlimited Family Plan. Amazon lets you bring up to six family members on a family plan for $15/month.


Compared to paying $10/month each, this is a great savings.

3. Use the Echo-Only Plan

Most people who have an Amazon Echo use it for playing music. If you fall into this camp, you might consider the Echo Plan for Amazon Music Unlimited, which gives you all the benefits of Amazon Music Unlimited on a single Echo device at a smaller price.

That means you can’t use it on your computer or phone, but for only $4/month, it’s a good deal if you only need music on your Echo.


Bonus: Free Trial for Amazon Music Unlimited

This isn’t a long-term solution, but we’ll mention it in case you weren’t aware. Amazon Music Unlimited offers a 30-day free trial that lets you evaluate the service. You can sign up by visiting the Amazon Music Unlimited page.

If you finish the trial and decide you don’t like the service, you’ve saved yourself a lot of money!
