While Amazon Prime Day is known for its deals on products – on everything from Amazon gift cards to genetic testing kits – savvy users can also find some great savings on Amazon services.
For example, from now through October 14th, Prime members who don’t have a current Audible subscription can pick up an annual Audible Premium Plus membership for just $99.50. The service typically runs $149.50 per year, so you’re saving $50 on your first 12 months of service (it’s like getting a few months of Audible for free). These types of discounts on Audible membership usually pop up two or three times a year, and they’re often a good bargain.
It’s worth noting that memberships renew automatically, so you’ll have to cancel your service manually if you don’t want to continue after the trial period. During every month of your membership, however, you’ll get a free credit good for any one audiobook, no matter how much it costs. Plus, you’ll get an additional 12 credits upfront with this deal, which equates to some extra free Audible books. You also get to keep those books after you cancel.
Members also get exclusive discounts on select titles (up to 30%), and they can swap purchased books any time for different titles if they so choose. In the past, if you already had Audible through Amazon, you could cancel and renew using this deal, however that no longer seems to be the case (at least, according to Slickdealer dpearson588).
Audible has a pretty solid retention rate, though. When users try to cancel, Audible will sometimes offer incentives like free credits for books, price decreases and cash credit bonuses. So sometimes, it can actually be in your best interest to try and cancel your account!
If you’ve been on the fence about getting Audible through Amazon, now is a great time to check it out. There are thousands of titles to choose from, and you’ll be hard pressed to find a better sign up deal (for the next 4-6 months at least).
