eMusic Pricing

These days I'm buying the majority of my tunes from eMusic (mp3 format, no DRM!), but I'm not a huge fan of their pricing model - my main problem with it is that unused downloads don't carry over to the next month.

My solution is to use their least expensive subscription - $9.99 per month - then buy Booster Packs as needed, which do carry over month-to-month.

  1. I recently cancelled my emusic account because I couldn't find 40 new songs (@$9.99) to download every month. It is a good service although one is limited by selection and they are a little sneaky. For example, I downgraded my subscription to $5.99 (for 20 songs) and for some reason it was later changed back to $9.99. There was little communication until I foinally cancelled, and suddenly I received lots of emails about all the 'new' stuff. In the end I never managed to download the 40 songs a month (because of the limited selection, further limited by country in many cases) and hence why I cancelled.
