What you see above is a picture of the last 30 USED CDs I bought on Amazon.com.
These 30 CDs total a number of 454 tracks.
CD prices ranged between $1.61 to $9.18
The total of these purchases, including shipping was $291.78
This makes the average cost per track only $0.64.
ITunes charges $1.29 per track, that’s a 48% saving per track, and I keep the CDs and the booklets, if anything happens to my hard drive, I just rip the CDs again to put my music on as many devices as I can.
So I ask you… Should online music stores get their prices down to $0.50 per track? or you think $1.29 is the price of getting your song whenever you want, wherever you want?
