Audible Gold Membership Plan

Audible Gold Plan - Audible Free TrialAudible is the largest provider of digital audio books for download. Audible’s content includes over 85,000 titles from more than 1,000 content providers.

Most Audible listeners download audio books to their PCs and Macs and then transfer the audio books to MP3 players, personal digital assistants (PDAs), or to smart mobile devices (SMDs) for listening on the go. Others transfer, or “burn,” the content to audio CDs, while some people simply listen at their computers or through a digital home entertainment network.

Audible audio files are compatible with over 500 models of audio players, PDAs, streaming media devices and mobile phones (including iPhone, BlackBerry and Android phones).

Audible Gold Membership

Audible Gold members receive 1 credit per month which is good for any audio book you choose to download. An Audible membership includes the following benefits:

  • 30% off any audio book purchased without a credit
  • Free daily subscription to The New York Times or The Wall Street Journal
  • Member-exclusive sales and promotions

Audible currently has two special introductory offers for the Audible Gold Plan:

1. Discount Gold Offer:

New members can download an audio book for $7.49 per month for the first 3 months, and $14.95 per month thereafter.

2. Gold Free Trial:

New members can download a free audio book with a 14 day trial.

Note: the easiest way to sign up with Audible is to use your Amazon account (Audible is owned by Amazon).

The Gold Free Trial is a no obligation trial. If you are not 100% satisfied with Audible, you can cancel your Audible account before the end of the trial, pay nothing and keep your free audio books.

Audible also had a Platinum Membership Plan where members receive 2 credits per month. Audible does not currently have a special introductory offer for the Platinum Membership. My advice is to initially sign up with the Gold Membership and later upgrade to the Platinum Membership if you find that 1 audio book per month is not enough.

  3. If you cancel your plan without using your book credits you lose them. But if you sign up for Gold at $14.95 plus tax, then redeem your credit for an audio book costing more than your membership, you can cancel and sign back up and get another credit immediately. So being aware of the book prices including the 30% discount, you can manage saving quite a bit by canceling and resigning. The audio books are yours to keep whether you have an active plan or not.
