Gone are the days when music had to be bought in physical stores. With the entry of iTunes, Amazon and other solutions, music has become a medium that is easily transferable online. That’s not all; digital music downloads are instantaneous, cheaper, and we no longer have to pay for songs we don’t want to listen to. If you are someone who frequently purchases music from iTunes or Amazon, you might first want to run your song or album through Tunemiser.
Find Cheaper Digital Music Online?
Tunemiser is a free web service that shows you which of the two most popular services, iTunes or Amazon is selling cheaper digital music. Just head over to Tunemiser.com and you’ll get an instant list of the ten most popular songs on the two networks along with their price tag. You can see at a glance if its worth buying a tune on iTunes or if Amazon.com is the place to go.
A small preview button is also attached beside the price tag so you can check out if that’s indeed the song you want to buy. I did notice that iTunes was showing up the incorrect result for Need You by Kalonii.
Also on the main page is a list of the top 10 albums. Here, you get to see the album cover and comparative price tags. A search bar below the website title lets you find any song, artist, or album.
So how much do you get to save using Tunemiser? Well, that depends on how many songs you are purchasing. Many songs are evenly priced on the two sites, but you can find minor price reductions on Amazon or iTunes to the tune of 30 cents. Album download savings can range from 50 cents to as much as 5 dollars.
We hope that Tunemiser will include more services in its price comparison list making it more of a meaningful place to turn to when we want to compare who is selling cheaper digital music. For now, if you blindly buy songs from iTunes or Amazon, you can now run it through Tunemiser and pick the cheaper solution. Who knows? You might be able to throw a pizza party now and again.
