Amazon is offering an Audible deal on its audiobook subscription at a 60% saving for four months. You can cancel at any time during the four months and not be committed to a longer subscription.
With the discounted Audible subscription, you get one audiobook title to download and keep each month, plus unlimited listening to thousands of select Audible Originals, podcasts and audiobooks.
In this Audible deal you pay $5.95 in the US or £2.99 in the UK each month for the first four months. The subscription, if you don’t cancel it during the period, costs $14.95/month or £7.99/month thereafter.
This deal is open to all, as long as you are a new customer of Audible or have cancelled your Audible account within the past 12 months.
The Audible offer is available until December 31, 2022. The Audible app works on iPhone, Android, Windows, or on Amazon’s own Fire Tablet, Fire TV and Echo.
The audiobook membership service hosts the world’s largest selection of audiobooks and “premium spoken-word entertainment”, according to Amazon. Membership includes unlimited listening to the Plus Catalogue–thousands of Audible Originals, podcasts and select audiobooks.
Audible membership includes a credit every month, applicable to any audiobook, regardless of its price or length. Prime members can claim two audiobooks as a part of the trial.
You get to keep the books for life, even if you cancel–which you can at any time, including the day before the third month if you no longer wish to continue as a member paying full price membership.
