Audible Silver Membership: What is it & How to Unlock it in 2019
Audible has a secret Silver Membership Plan. For some reasons, they do not advertise about it on their website. You won’t see it until you follow certain steps that trigger this offer to appear.
In this article, you will learn about Audible’s Silver Membership plan and the steps that you need to follow to activate it.
So let’s dive in…
TWO IMPORTANT UPDATES (December, 2019)
Update 1 : Currently, Amazon is offering Audible membership at just $6.95/month instead of $14.95/month to new Audible members on first 3 months. This is a limited-time offer. Here’s the link to this offer page.
Update 2: Amazon is also offering 3 Free Audiobooks to new Audible members (Those who haven’t taken the free trial before) during the free trial. You will get 1 Audiobook of your choice and 2 from the Audible Originals! You can keep those books for lifetime, even if you cancel your trial membership!
Here’s the link to the free trial offer page!
About Audible Silver Membership Plan
Under Audible’s Silver Membership plan, you will get 1 credit on alternate months at a price of $14.98. Your billing will also be done on alternate months. That means you will be paying $14.98 for two months.
It is like canceling your subscription and restarting it every alternate month. However, if you cancel your Audible subscription entirely, you lose all the unused credits that you have on your account.
Besides, you don’t get any membership benefits during the canceled month. The good thing about the Silver Membership plan is that you still get to enjoy all the benefits of a premium Audible member. Here are the most notable ones:
- 30% discount on any purchase
- Audible daily deals notification.
- Access to Member-only sales
- You will also get 2 audible originals every month. That means you can get 4 Audible Originals for free during every two months membership term.
So if you don’t listen to audiobooks very often, then Audible Silver Membership plan will be better for you than the regular Audible Gold Monthly plan.
Did you know?
Audible also has another secret plan that costs only $9.95/year! At that price, it certainly has restricted benefits, but maybe it is something that might suit your requirement! Read more about Audible’s $9.95/year plan here.
