Fitting more reading time into your daily schedule can feel impossible at times, but today Amazon has a discount on its Audible audiobook service that can help you get back to your books, even while you're busy. Audible is the #1 retailer for audiobooks in the world, and for a limited time, you can score a 53% savings on their first three months. The deal drops each monthly payment down to only $6.95 from the regular $15 cost meaning you save $24 total. While the offer states it is only for new users of the service, we have heard reports of people who have previously used Audible also being able to make the most of the this offer, so it's worth a try even if you've used an Audible trial before or have a lapsed membership.
Listen to your books
An Audible membership earns you 1 credit each month for any audiobook you want, as well as the choice of two Audible Originals from a hand-picked selection. This deal is for new users, though some with previously-cancelled memberships have had luck.
$44.85 $24 off
At the end of the three months, you'll start paying the regular monthly charge. Since this deal bills you monthly, you can just pay $6.95 for the first month, decide you don't like it, then cancel the trial and your subscription without paying for the rest of it. Or if it works for you just keep with it. The choice is yours.
You will get a credit for one audiobook every month and those credits can be used on any audiobook on Audible regardless of price. You'll also get to select two Audible Originals every month from Amazon's curated selection, essentially giving you three free audiobooks every month. Other benefits of Audible include access to podcasts and specific audio programs completely ad-free and discounts up to 30% off on additional audiobooks. Another awesome feature about Audible is your ability to swap any audiobook you buy that you don't like with another book. Whether you're not a fan of the narrator or the story just isn't what you thought it would be, Audible makes it easy to receive your credit back no matter what the reason. And when your subscription ends you get to keep any you've already collected.
While you can use a device like the new Kindle Paperwhite, you don't need anything special to listen to Audible. Download the app on your smartphone, tablet, or computer and listen whenever you want. Just make sure you sign up while you still can.
