Amazon is offering its Audible audiobook subscription in the UK for just 99p for three months, a major discount from the usual £7.99 a month - a saving of £21.

This deal was previously for Amazon Prime members only, but now it's open to all (as long as you are a new customer to Audible). Head to Amazon get Audible for 99p.

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.
