Strap in, and let’s get right into our Audible review, starting with the most commonly asked questions you might have about the service.
How many books do you get a month with Audible Review?
Audible has two membership options. The classic one-credit-a-month plan, known as Audible Premium Plus, will let you choose a title in their library to keep and listen to any title they have. They also now have a cheaper option called Audible Plus, which is like a streaming service for audiobooks where you can listen to all you want a month at a time.
2. How much does Audible really cost?
Audible Plus is $7.95 a month, for which you get to listen to any book in the library (but you don’t get to keep them). Audible Premium Plus costs $14.95 a month and gives you everything Audible Plus does plus 1 credit per month to select any audiobook in their library to keep.
3. How many audiobooks are on Audible Review?
There are over 200,000 audiobooks available on Audible. I’ve been using it for years and have yet to find that it doesn’t have one of my favorites. It’s also usually the quickest service to get bestsellers as they come out and many audiobooks are only available on Audible.
4. Is Audible free with Prime?
Audible is not free with an Amazon Prime membership. However, if you choose to get a free trial of Audible Premium Plus then you get to select 2 audiobooks to keep instead of just one!
5. Can I get Audible Review for free?
You can try Audible for free for 30 days. Then, your subscription will renew monthly depending on which plan you chose. If you use an affiliate link, like ours, when you subscribe to Audible Premium Plus, you’ll get at least 1 audiobook to keep even after the free trial is over. If you’re an Amazon Prime member, you’ll get 2. For those who purchase Audible Plus, you can listen to any audiobook in their library for free for 30 days.
6. Do I need a subscription for Audible?
You do not need a subscription for Audible to keep the books you’ve purchased or received as part of a free trial. Without a subscription, however, you will not be able to listen to unlimited audiobooks in their library or use credits to purchase audiobooks.
7. Can I still listen to Audible if I cancel my subscription?
If you cancel your Audible subscription, you still get to keep the books that you’ve received as part of a free trial or purchased with credits or otherwise. I’ve gone through times when I don’t have an active Audible subscription and I can still listen to any book in my library all I want!
