$5 Specials at Amazon.com on New Releases, Greatest Hits and Holiday Albums

Posted November 9, 2010 by J Matthew Cobb in News

Online retailer Amazon.com is pumping out the early sales with $5 dollar MP3 album promotions – just in time for the holidays

Amazon.com is pulling out all their A-game on their competitors with the unveiling of November’s blockbuster sales of MP3 albums.

Included in the mix are some of the editor’s choices, critically-acclaimed new releases and load of “greatest hits” and holiday compilations that are bound to wound up on a music connoisseur’s mp3 player.

Even though the MP3-format albums aren’t expected to win the hearts of those that prefer the stocking-stuffing physical copies, $5 dollar days – using the same gimmick of fast-food combos – are bound to give a number of artists some Billboard chart cred in the next couple of weeks.
