Amazon Audible has an targeted promotion with a free 1-month trial with 2 audiobook credits + $15 Prime Now credit (minimum $35 Prime Now order). This offer is only available to Prime Members who will be new Audible customers (not valid for existing subscribers or if you have utilized a free trial in the last 12 months). If this offer is available for you then you will see the banner ‘Enjoy books in a whole new way and get a $15 Prime Now credit’ when you log in to your Amazon Prime account.
Your Audible audiobooks will remain in your account forever even if you stop the monthly membership fee. So you’re basically getting $30+ worth of audiobooks + $15 in PrimeNow credit for free. If you do nothing, after 30 days you’ll be charged the normal $14.95/month membership fee that includes 1 audiobook credit per month. If you are worried about forgetting to cancel, I would recommend picking out two books quickly and canceling right afterward. Prime Now Credit expires 60 days from when you redeem the offer.
Additional Audible membership features include being able to swap out audiobooks if you don’t like it after listening for a bit, and 30% off the list price of additional audiobooks. You can even have Alexa read your audiobook to you.
During my first trial, I listened to Shoe Dog (Nike origin story) and When Breathe Becomes Air. Here’s my Shoe Dog review; I enjoyed it in audiobook format. When Breathe Becomes Air was poignant, but I think I’d rather have read it as a physical book.
Finally, I recently finished I Can’t Make This Up: Life Lessons from Kevin Hart. which was quite funny and interesting. Next up, probably The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life.
