The AWS Price List API lets you access detailed pricing information for AWS services in JSON form. You can also opt in to receive updates when prices change by subscribing to Amazon Simple Notification Service (Amazon SNS) topics.  

Previously, the AWS Price List API only returned product pricing information at the region and AWS service levels, but has been enhanced to return pricing information filtered across a wide array of product dimensions. You can now build highly-specific requests that return targeted pricing information; for example, prices for all EC2 instances in the AWS Asia Pacific (Mumbai) region with 64 vCPUs and 256 GB of memory, where SQL Server Enterprise comes pre-installed.
