This holiday season, Amazon is giving its customers a discount on its newest tier of Audible, Audible Plus. With unlimited streaming of over one million audiobooks, Audible Originals and podcasts, it's like Netflix for your ears and today you can join for as little as $4.95 per month (opens in new tab) with the current sale.

Becoming obsessed with Audible is a real thing. You start off thinking you're just getting a free 30-day trial and suddenly your library is 20 audiobooks deep and you've been a member for over a year. Now that Audible has a more affordable tier called Audible Plus (opens in new tab), there's no excuse to go so long without discovering a new story or going back and discovering old favorites.

Audible Plus normally costs just $7.95 monthly, but thanks to Amazon's latest holiday offer on the service, you can start your membership today for only $4.95 per month (opens in new tab). That price will stick around for the next six months after which the service will continue at its regular price unless you decide to cancel your subscription. Audible gives you the ability to cancel at any time, even during your first month if you decide it's not a great fit for you.
