The Amazon Music Unlimited Individual Plan for Prime members is increasing from $8.99 to $9.99 per month, or $89 to $99 per year. The Amazon Music Unlimited Family Plan is increasing from $15.99 to $16.99 per month, or $159 to $169 per year.
The new prices will go into effect immediately for new customers and after September 19 for existing customers. The price hikes were first reported by The Hollywood Reporter.
