Amazon.com (AMZN 0.25%) has expanded AutoRip to vinyl records purchases since 1998.
Introduced in January, AutoRip provides Music Store customers with free digital copies (MP3s) when they make a CD purchase. Similarly, customers who now buy a vinyl record will also receive a free digital copy added to their Cloud Player libraries. This extends to all Amazon customers who have bought from the Music Store since 1998. Moving forward, prospective customers can receive free MP3s by looking for the AutoRip logo.
As part of the AutoRip service, customers can stream the MP3s on Kindle Fire, Android phones and tablets, iOS devices, Samsung TV, Roku, Sonos, and Ford (F -2.72%) SYNC Applink-equipped vehicles. Furthermore, customers will receive free storage and backup on all AutoRip MP3s. 256 Kbps MP3
