I'm guessing this is only for new members? I'm actually a paying active member. Yes $14.95 for one Audiobook is expensive, but I realized you can use it more like a Netflix service.

Audible has a policy where they will allow you to return any audiobook within 1 year for your credit back. It's a no questions asked policy from what I understand.

So usually I'll just use up my credits as they come. Then when I want to listen to something new and I don't have any credits left, I'll look through my library and see which book I didn't really like that much and exchange it for a credit to listen to something new.

So it's basically a Netflix for Audiobooks.

Reorder these according to when they came out or were posted here so it's easier to build a promo timeline.
i heard later amazon will open donation center to give away free $$ when you register and stay with them

Signed up and got an email saying I got a $5 credit but I checked my amazon credits and it’s nowhere to be found?

Edit: Never mind, it shows up in the cart only.

How do we cancel, I don’t see anything anywhere on amazon or audible?

Netflix works nothing like this with scrounging for credits and such...

I claimed the promo even though I did the free promo last year. It then showed "The Audible free trial offer is only available to new members" . But checked my Audible account and it shows the 90-day free ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Did it show you the option for 30 day trial instead and did you get the $5?

Wait, so, without the promotion, this service wants $14.95 per month, and then you also have to pay for each audiobook?
The $14.95 gets you one free credit/book a month, any book after that is charged at the price listed. So it is in your best interest to make sure you select the most expensive book you want to read first with the credit and then buy the cheaper one later.. or you can return the first book after you listen to it and get your credit back and apply it to another book , thus you can get 2 or more free if you keep doing this (try not to abuse though).

However when you cancel the free trial select too expensive for the reason and you can get a cheaper monthly rate for a few more months, so be sure to select this reason when canceling.

I could have sworn there were some free audiobooks that you could download with this - but I can't seem to find them, or Amazon has hidden them. Anyone know how to find them on audible.ca?

What if I cancel the Prime membership before the 90 day Audible trial is over: do I lost the extra Audible days? Or is it still the full 90?

So QC peeps are required to pay the membership for the 3 months free and Amazon credit? :(
