maybe so, but if you work your regular BMG account right, your average cost is far less than 6.99 / cd. even less than 5.99 if you play your cards right.

i'll stick to doing just that!

Yourmusic is good if you reactivate an old account and choose a two-disc set as your next queue item. You get two free CDs that way!

For those who want to extend their 5.99 subscription for a year or longer, you could buy a gift subscription for yourself now, cancel your account when the price hikes, and then redeem the gift subscription:

http://www.yourmusic.com/gift_subscriptions/

The downside is that you'll be paying upfront instead of monthly, but since the subscription goes over the period of a whole year, you get the selection of new releases as they come out.

The longest one gift subscription goes is one year, but you can buy multiple subscriptions now since, according to their FAQ, they never expire:

Yeah that does suck....guess I'm getting spoiled w/ the $5.99/CD but their service has gotten better IMO...my 1st two shipments as a new member came in broken/cracked cases...since then they have been great! Will have to discuss w/ the Mrs. about whether to continue the service!

with no tax? I certainly pay tax (6%) here in PA. My monthly bill is $5.35.

I'm assuming you meant $6.35, unless you somehow got to keep the $4.99 price.

Anyway, when I lived in WI, I didn't pay tax, but now in NY I do.

from youmusic's site:
http://www.yourmusic.com/help/index_..._section=taxes
"Yourmusic.com charges state and local taxes, if applicable."

Typically "applicable" means whether or not they have a distribution center or headquarters located in the state you're ordering from.

Well, I would NEVER (lemme emphasize NEVER) pay $10 for fucking mp3s. EVER.

However, in addition to their quickly inflating prices, I was also referring to their "queue" system. I've had problems with it, such as items disappearing and whatnot.

I've had items disappear from my queue because they're no longer available. I always get an email notifying me though.

Ditto. I've got no complaints about yourmusic. The worse problem I can think of is a broken case or 2, and they sent out a replacement as soon as I emailed them.

OTOH I have had a few run-ins with the BMG club -- they seem to screw up royally every year or 2. It takes a lot more work to keep them honest.

Not a huge deal and I'll probably continue the program. I will stop the impulse buys and just let them come from my queue.

However, this kills their pricing on 2xCDs. Those will now be $13.98!

You are better off with a regular BMG account for box sets and most multi-disc sets. The box and multi sets are priced at 6.99 per disc at Yourmusic and there are usually codes to get them cheaper or with free shipping through BMG.

That said, there are a few cd/dvd sets on Yourmusic that go for the regular 6.99 price and these can be put in your queue.

Yourmusic just had a sale earlier this week for buy 2 get one free. That comes out to cds for 4.66 each. This is the first time that I know of that they had a sale like this.

You used to get a free CD if you reactivated an account. I don't know if that is still true.

I purchased the Bob Dylan Bootlegs Volumes 1-3 boxset for a very good price from yourmusic.com It's cheaper than any traditional B&M or web-based stores. I'm not sure if it'd be cheaper from BMG or not.

No, it should say "Come back today and get a FREE CD!"

Holy thread bump. I actually got in for a short period at $4.99. It only lasted a couple of months until they upped the price to $5.99. I instantly opted out at that point.

Have they eliminated the entire BMG Sony Catalog on yourmusic.com too?

I had no idea they do sales on the site. How do you guys find out about them? I'm a member, but don't remember seeing e-mails for it.

I've been on and off there for awhile now. Once I run out of thing I want, I'll quit for awhile until they get a bunch of new stuff in I'm interested in. I still think $6.99 is a terrific deal for cds, and I don't have the patience to play the BMG game.
