There are so many ways to listen to music these days that it can be hard to figure out which plans offer the best price for the value. Some streaming services have free plans, but come with ads and limited listening options, while others avoid those headaches but run upwards of $20 per month. With Prime Day 2021 around the corner, Amazon Prime members can currently get a great deal on the retail giant’s upgraded streaming service, Amazon Music Unlimited.
While subscribers can normally get a free 30-day trial to the service, this month, Prime members will get to experience unlimited access to upwards of 70 million songs (we found the selection to rival that of Spotify) for a full 120-day period free of charge before the typical $7.99 per month subscription fee kicks in. (Note that non-Prime members will only receive a 90-day free trial and will pay $9.99 a month in subsequent months.) Amazon also has a free streaming option, but Unlimited comes packed with a less-restrictive listening roster and higher audio quality.
In addition to tunes galore, the Unlimited version of the service will give subscribers plenty of on-demand podcasts, all of which will come completely free of ads. Subscribers can also listen to saved songs offline with unlimited skips.
We named Unlimited as one of the best music streaming services around thanks to its Dolby Atmos Music feature, which expands a song’s mix selection for heightened surround and speaker height elements. Ultimately, this creates a sonic experience of different instruments and song segments coming at you from different angles. Currently, this benefit is only compatible with Amazon Echo Studio speaker ($199.99), but it’s possible the company will expand its device support in the future.

While we found that other music streaming services offer more playlist and customization bells and whistles than Unlimited, its current discount makes it a far more attractive option.
So, if you’re ready to simplify your streaming and get a great deal at the same time, give Amazon Music Unlimited a spin and truly revel in the discounts of being a Prime member.
