Buy itunes from Amazon Prime Day, Amazon Cyber Monday and Black Friday Now

I called it. When iTunes first raised its prices on some tracks this week I figured that we would see the other digital music stores follow suit. That has happened with Walmart and Amazon now raising their prices to match iTunes.

Like Apple, Walmart and Amazon have also decreased the price of some catalog tracks, which are likely to be tracks that few actually want to buy anyway. It's still unclear if this is nothing more than a grab for more profits from consumers, or if this was something spurred by the recording industry.

The long and short of it is that now you really have no choice but to pay the higher fees for new and hot songs with three of the largest digital music stores now matching prices. It seems rather like a pricing conspiracy.
