You can also subscribe to be an Audible member to get discounts on audiobooks. In the past, your only option was a month to month membership for 1 or 2 books at a time. Now Audible offers a yearly membership that lets you save at least $30 vs a traditional monthly membership.

With this new $149.50 yearly Audible membership you can get 12 audiobook credits at once and 2 Audible Originals every month. In the past, you would have spent more and only gotten 1 credit a month for $14.95 a month. ($179.40 a year) Amazon also offers a Platinum Annual plan for $229.50 a year that offers 24 credits worth 24 books. This works out to a $45.90 savings vs the $22.95 a month plan with 2 books a month. The Platinum plan works out to be $9.57 per credit and can offer huge savings compared to buying 24 separate audiobooks.

The good news is current Audible members who wish to switch can subscribe to the new annual plans. You can find all the available Audible membership plans on Amazon’s website HERE.

Here is what you get from this new annual membership:

  • Get 12 audiobooks all at once and 2 Audible Originals from a curated selection every month.
  • Easy exchanges – swap any audiobook you don’t love.
  • Keep all your audiobooks, even if you cancel.
  • Get 30% off additional audiobooks.
