I haven't seen this posted, but I was on the fence about buying the $1.99/month. By paying annually instead of monthly, you can now receive a discounted rate. Never hurts to save a couple of bucks if you already have a pay plan in the first place.
100GB for $19.99/year (16% savings) - Comes out to ~$1.67/month
1 TB for $99.99/year (17% savings) - Comes out to ~$8.34/month
Yes, you could just use OneDrive/Amazon Cloud (unlimited photos with Prime) or other cloud services to upload photos. For me, Google Photos integration with Google Drive and my Android Devices is seamless.

If you currently have a paid plan, and the yearly subscription isn't showing up
For those also on a monthly plan, I just canceled my plan with the expectation that I'll be able to sign up for the yearly plan at the end of my billing cycle. Here's the info I was told just now in a chat with Google Support:
Since you have an existing subscription, you won't be able to see it yet unless the plan expires. For existing plan users, you'd have to cancel the plan and wait for it to expire then you'll be able to see the annual storage subscription on that page.
To cancel your storage plan:
Go to Google.com/settings/storage
Under your current plan, click Cancel Plan.
Confirm the changes, and click Cancel Plan to finish.
After you cancel your storage plan, it will stay active just until the end of your current billing cycle, and will no longer renew after that. You should also get a confirmation email for the cancellation.
When your plan expires, none of your files gets deleted. They'll stay on your account unless you delete them yourself.
