Is this deal for me?

Get a full year of access to Audible for $99.50. That's down from the usual price of $149.50. The difference is a savings of about $4 a month. In the lead-up to Prime Day, Amazon offered a similar deal for six months to Prime members. This deal costs around the same amount and covers a full year.

This deal only applies to new Audible members and expires October 25.

With this subscription you get 12 credits, which are each good for an audio book regardless of its price. You'll also get access to podcasts and other audio programs ad-free. Additional audio books beyond those 12 credits are discounted by as much as 30%. If you want, you can swap books out for no charge. And if you cancel your subscription, you get to keep any books you've already collected.

Amazon is really trying to get people to read because in addition to this Audible deal, there's also a big sale on Kindles and Kindle Unlimited going on right now. If you'd rather get your books that way, it's a deal worth checking out.

TL;DR

  • What makes this deal worth considering? - If you want to read but the reading part annoys you, use this subscription and listen instead. This is a great program if you spend a lot of time on public transportation or driving, for example.
  • Things to know before you buy! - At the end of 12 months, your subscription will automatically renew for $149.50. Also, if you prefer reading your books rather than listening to them, check out this deal on Kindles and Kindle Unlimited.
