Amazon Discounting MP3’s

Amazon.com has announced two new MP3 promotions, “Daily Deals” and “Friday Five,” offering customers deep discounts on select newly released and catalog albums.

“Daily Deals” is updated daily and offers a popular album at a significantly discounted price, while “Friday Five” offers five albums for $5 every Friday and through the weekend. In celebration of Coldplay’s new album, this week’s “Daily Deals” will be their preceding albums. “X&Y” which was availalbe Tuesday for $1.99, “A Rush of Blood to the Head” will be available on Wednesday for $1.99, Parachutes” will be available on Thursday for $1.99 and “Brothers and Sisters” will be offered on Friday for 99 cents.

I haven’t checked in on Amazon MP3 recently, but the figures are impressive: 5.4 million DRM free MP3 tracks and some decent prices. Worth a look.
