Audible has an amazing Prime Day offer – 3 months free

If you ever cancel your Audible membership, you still retain all the audiobooks you bought.

What is Amazon's Prime Day Audible offer?

Amazon’s massive Prime Day sales event is just around the corner, taking place July 11 and 12. But you don’t have to wait until then to score some of the best and biggest deals. One such deal is a free Audible Premium Plus membership for three straight months. Normally, one month of Premium Plus is $15 so that’s a $45 value. You don’t have to decide if that’s something you’re interested in right away since access lasts until July 31. The only catch is that you have to be an Amazon Prime member to redeem the offer.

What is Audible?

Audible is Amazon’s service that provides members access to a range of audio-based entertainment. It’s best known for its huge library of audiobooks, including many that are exclusive to Audible. It also includes podcasts, music or white noise to help you sleep as well as meditation aides.

How does Audible work?

Audible content is typically accessed through memberships. You can also buy audiobooks piecemeal without a membership, though you still need an Amazon account to make those purchases and keep track of your digital collection. You don't need an Amazon Prime account to use Audible.

What are the different Audible memberships?

The two Audible memberships are called Audible Plus and Audible Premium Plus.

  • Audible Plus costs $7.95 a month and gives you access to a curated selection of Audible originals and other audiobooks.
  • Audible Premium Plus, the membership offered in the Prime Day deal, costs $14.95 a month and includes everything in Audible Plus. It also gives you one credit a month you can use to “buy” an audiobook of your choosing. There’s also a two-credit version of Premium Plus that costs $22.95 a month and annual versions of both the one- and two-credit plans that cost $149.50 and $229.50 a year, respectively.

Can I give an Audible membership as a gift?

Yes, you can gift someone an Audible membership in increments of one, three, six and 12 months, paid in full at the time of the gift's purchase. If the recipient is already an Audible Plus or Premium Plus member, they instead receive an equal number of credits immediately. For example, if you bought someone who is already a member a three-month gift membership, they instead immediately receive three credits to spend as they wish.
