Amazon is offering its Audible audiobook subscription in the UK for just 99p for three months, a super offer as the usual price is £7.99 a month – so a saving of nearly £23.
With the 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 the first month you pay 99p, and months two and three are free. The subscription, if you don't cancel it after three months or at any time beforehand, costs £7.99/month thereafter.
This deal is open to all, as long as you are a new customer of Audible.
The offer is available until November 30, 2021 in the UK, available by invitation only to new subscribers of Audible.
US Audible deals
In the US, Amazon has a different Audible deal.
New customers can save 46% on their first four months, by joining Audible Premium Plus for $7.95/mo. After four months, the service costs $14.95 a month.
As in the UK, you can cancel anytime.
Audible for free
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.
Members also get unlimited listening to a huge selection of Audible Original Podcasts, at no extra cost.
Outside of the membership, audiobooks cost considerably more from Audible via Amazon. For example, Barack Obama’s A Promised Land autobiography will set you back a whopping $39 or £49.
There are different-level Audible membership plans:
1-book Monthly membership: £7.99/month (£7.99 per book)
