In the US, Amazon is offering 53% off the subscription cost for four months which drops the price to $6.95 from $14.95 per month. The offer ends 30 June, 2021.

The audiobook membership service hosts the world's largest selection of audiobooks and “premium spoken-word entertainment”, according to Amazon.

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.
