AMAZON is raising the price of its Music Unlimited subscription for Prime members.
The tech giant's Music Unlimited Plan price is increasing from $7.99 to $8.99 per month, or from $79 to $89 per year.
Also going up is Amazon's Music Single-Device subscription fee, from $3.99 to $4.99 per month.
The pricing changes are due to go into effect on May 5, but subscribers won't see the new fares until their first bill after that date.
Amazon said it was raising the plans' fees to "help us bring you even more content and features."
Meanwhile, the Music Unlimited plan for non-Prime members is staying the same at $9.99 per month.
"Amazon Prime members will continue to pay a reduced price for the Amazon Music Unlimited Individual Plan," the company said.
Still, the new changes in fees mean that Prime members will now only get a $1 discount (as opposed to $2) when compared with non-Prime members.
For those on a trial period or promotional offer, Amazon noted that they will continue to receive the discounted rate until their promotion is up.
"Once that period ends, we will honor the original subscription price plus applicable taxes for one billing cycle," the company said.
