FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Why should I register as a member of Prima Music?
Would you explain the membership levels?
At Prima Music we want to reward you for being a loyal customer. Similar to an airline's frequent flyer program, the more you shop with us, the more perks you receive. There are four levels of membership (Silver, Gold, Platinum, and Diamond), each with an increasing level of discount off the list price. In no time at all you will be saving 25% on every item you buy*. Unlike the airline programs, however, you do not need to re-earn your status every year. Once you achieve a specific level at Prima Music, you remain at that level forever, as long as you remain active (making at least one purchase within a 12-month period). *Some exceptions apply.
How do I move up the next level of membership?
Attaining new levels of membership at Prima Music is based on the total amount you have spent with us since you joined. Unlike other programs that require you to purchase a certain amount within a short period of time, your purchase credits will never expire at Prima Music as long as your remain an active customer. We want you as a customer for life. Once you qualify for a new membership level, you will immediately begin to receive the increased discount for that level. You will remain at that level forever, as long as you make at least one purchase of any value at Prima Music during the following year. This is a rolling 12-month period. So, once you make a future purchase, you will then have another 12-months to make a purchase in order to maintain your current membership level.
Once I arrive at a new membership level, how long will I remain at that level?

You will remain at that level forever, as long as you make at least one purchase of any value at Prima Music during the following year. This is a rolling 12-month period. So, once you make a future purchase, you will then have another 12-months to make a purchase in order to maintain your current membership level.
Can I place special orders for items not in your catalog?
Yes, we can order from many publishers. If the item is in print, we likely can get it for you. Please note that special ordered items cannot be removed from your order once we have ordered the item on your behalf. Special order items are not returnable.
Do certain items have a maximum discount allowed?
Yes, some publisher or manufacturer restrictions apply that will limit the discount. In these circumstances, we will provide the greatest discount allowed.
Do I get the member discount on everything?
Member discounts are not additive to previous discounts applied to an item. If an item is already discounted above your member discount, you will receive the highest discount. Items that are previously discounted may include sale, clearance, overstock items, or any publisher established discounts, such as Value Packs. Our system will select the highest discount for you. Please note: your member price is based on Prima Music's list price, which may be higher than the publisher's suggested retail price.
Can I lose my members privileges?
Membership privileges at Prima Music are based on maintaining good account standing. Any account that is no longer in good standing may lose membership previliges, including membership discount, at the sole discretion of Prima Music. The following actions may cause the suspension or deletion of your account:
