Audible trick so you don't spend a fortune!
Audible is a partner company with Amazon and it only sells E-audiobooks. That's its business. But one thing that makes it different is that the company evolves and offers specialized readings to its users, like a new offering of Alice in Wonderland performed by Scarlett Johansson or The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn read by Elijah Wood. Pretty cool, huh?
Well, if you're anything like me, when you find something you love, it can be addicting. Audible is the same as any other website, whether you have a "membership" with the monthly fee attached or not. It compels you to buy and before you know it you've spent hundreds of dollars that probably could have been put to better use on that new vacuum cleaner or a replacement dishwasher to bring your kitchen out of the 70s. Am I right?
But I discovered a brilliant trick with Audible!
A lot of the audiobooks have a partner Kindle book on Amazon. Sometimes, or actually a lot of the time, that Kindle book is listed for a really reduced price. Instead of the list price of $14.95, it's only $2.99 for a short time. Well, let's say the counterpart audiobook is $19.99 on Audible. BUT, if you purchase that Kindle book for $2.99 first, it will guarantee you a reduced price of the audiobook on Audible, going from $19.99 to perhaps as low as $3.99.
Or, in my recent case, I bought A Christmas Carol Kindle book for free and was able to buy the Tim Curry audiobook for $.99! Yay! Now that's what I call a bargain!
Just keep in mind that not all of the audiobooks work this way. If there is a discount available if you also own the Kindle book then Audible will tell you on the listing of the audiobook you're interested in. No muss, no fuss, just lots of convenience and dollars saved.
I hope you enjoyed this Audible trick and have fun listening, my friends! ❤
