I pay about $20 per month (I renew every six months.) That includes the ability to listen online on any computer or mobile device that gets internet. It is my entertainment budget. I'd rather do without tv than my satellite radio. I just got an email from them saying that the royalty fees are increasing so I think there will be a slight bump in the price.
I have had friends whose trial expired and they had success calling and threatening not to subscribe unless they were given a lower rate than published. If you have patience and chutzpah, you might try it.

Yeah, I pay $4.95/month I let my trial run out, and then they sent me more and more promotions with lower prices than before. I finally just took them up on one of them. My SO has good luck bartering with them.
