5 Tips to Get the Most Out of Audible Sales & Deals

One of the disadvantages of audiobooks is that they can be very expensive if purchased at the listed price. Some users argue that Audible is very expensive as compared to its cheaper alternatives.

Audible offers plenty of sales, deals, and offers to its members including Daily Deals, Under $5 Deals, Monthly Deals, 2-for-1, and 3-for-2 deals. These sales offer hundreds of titles at up to 85% discount.

This article will help you understand different types of deals and how you can get the most out of them.

Let us have a look at different types of Audible sales. All of these offers are exclusive for Audible members, with the exception of Whispersync deals on Amazon and Daily Deals.

5: Sitewide Sales

These sales are rare as compared to other deals but they offer pretty much all titles on up to 85% discount.

There is no better time to fill up your Audible library than the sitewide annual sales.

5 Tips to Get the Most Out of Audible Sales

There are plenty of tips to save money on Audible, here are some of the ways to help you get the most out of Audible sales, deals and offers.

1: Visit Audible Deals Section Regularly

Audible’s Audiobook Deals page features all current sales in one place including Daily Deals, Monthly Deals, and Under $5 Deals.

This is a must-visit section for frugal audiobook lovers. You can quickly check this page every day for Daily Deals

2: Sign Up for Sales Notifications

Another way to keep up with sales and deals is by signing up for sales emails. You get all sales and offers in your email without checking the website or app for the latest deals. You can sign up for email notifications

  • Go to Audible’s website and sign in to your account
  • Click on Account Name > Account Details
Audible's Account Details option

  • Click on Notifications from the options on the left side of the page

You can check the box for Audible Daily Deals to receive an email about Daily Deal offers.

Tip: You can also text Update from your phone to 500500 to receive regular sales notifications via text messages.

3: Use the Wish List Feature

This is one of my favorite Audible features. You can add audiobooks that you find interesting to your account’s Wish List and get notified when they go on a sale.

This feature allows you to keep track of what you want to listen to in the future and get those titles at a discount.

When you find a title that catches your interest, add it to your Wish List instead of buying it at the listed price. You can add a title to your Wish List on the Audible Website or Audible app.

To add a book to your Wish List on the Audible app, tap on Add to Wish List on your iPhone

Or tap on More Options > Add to Wish List on Android.

On Audible’s desktop site, you can add a title to the Wish List directly from search results

Note: On the book’s details page click on More Options > Add to Wish List to add the title to the Wish List

You can also add a title to your Wish List on Audible’s mobile site by tapping on Add to Wish List on the title’s details page.

4: Use the Credits Effectively

Audible offers both cash and credit deals. If a title is available for a discounted price, it is best to purchase it for cash. Audible offers up to 85% discount on audiobooks and you can get them for under $5.

It is also important to save some credits to get the 2-for-1 or 3-for-2 sales. Avoid using credits on cheap titles (any book that costs less than the credit’s price).

The best use of credits is for lengthy/ expensive books and 2-for-1 sales.

5: Whispersync Deals

If you buy an eBook on Amazon for your Kindle, you mostly get an offer to add the Audible narration for a significantly reduced price. Whispersync deals give you the same book as you buy from Audible.

You can also get the Whispersync deals for the Kindle eBooks you already own using Audible Matchmaker. If you borrow an eBook through Kindle Unlimited, you often get the option to purchase the accompanying audiobook at a discount.

Unlike other deals, Whispersync deals stay for months and are available to all Amazon users. You do not need a Kindle Unlimited or Audible membership to get Whsipersync deals.

If you want to get an audiobook using credit, I recommend checking Amazon first to see if the book has a Whispersync offer.  In most cases, you can get the audiobook (and eBook) cheaper than the price of the credit.

If a book listing features a headphone logo, it shows that it is Whispersync ready and has both eBook and audiobook versions available.

The coolest feature of Whispersync titles is how eBook and audiobook formats sync and allow you to switch back and forth between listening and reading.

You can enjoy the Immersion Reading experience with these books.

Visit Kindle books with Audible books pages to find all the eBooks with Audible narrations. Know more from the following links.

One of the benefits of Audible membership is that you get access to frequent sales and offers that allow you to grab your favorite titles at huge discounts.
