Remember when we all wondered why, exactly, I shelled out $100 for 100GB of storage space for Amazon's Cloud Music Player? I'm really regretting that decision now, as Amazon just announced that if you pony up a mere $20 for a $20GB Amazon Cloud Drive plan, you'll be bumped up to unlimited Cloud Player storage. As in, no limit at all. Upload all you want.
Hey, that's great. Glad to see Amazon throwing a bone to new customers. And for us early adopters who wanted a little more space, well, we're just out of luck.
Update: Were you like your intrepid editor and paid more for extra storage? Amazon's refunding the difference! Here's the e-mail I just got.
Because your current plan now includes unlimited space for music, we're refunding the difference between the cost of your original Cloud Drive plan of 100 GB and the cost of a current 20 GB plan ($20), which is the least-expensive Cloud Drive plan that includes unlimited space for music. A refund of $80 will be issued to the card originally used for your Amazon Cloud Drive storage plan. Refunds are typically completed within 10 business days and will appear as a credit on your credit card statement.
Good on ya, Amazon! (And a tip of the hat to @dcornejo)
