Spotify and Apple Music have been both offering eligible students discounts on their music services, and now Amazon is jumping on the same bandwagon. As first spotted by TechCrunch, Prime Student members can now subscribe to Amazon Music Unlimited, originally announced last October, for $4.99/month rather the full $9.99/month subscription tier. In addition, new members can subscribe to the service and pay $6 for 6 months of access which hasn’t be offered by any other music service in history.
The news comes as the back-to-school season kicks back up. Many retailers are offering discounts on their services and products, so it makes sense to see Amazon introduce this subscription tier now. You can learn more about the discount and subscribe if you’re an eligible student here.
