We are lowering prices for Amazon CloudSearch by up to 50% (depending on instance type). The price reductions apply to all AWS Regions where Amazon CloudSearch is available and will be retroactively applied for usage beginning on November 1, 2014. For example, in the US East Region, the price of a small search instance was reduced to $0.059 per hour, and the price of a large search instance was reduced to $0.236 per hour. The full list of new prices can be found on the Amazon CloudSearch Pricing page.
