  1. Get 1 free audiobook and 2 free Audible Originals from Audible during your 30-day Audible Free Trial. If you directly start with student membership, then you may not be able to enjoy the free audiobook and Audible Originals.

  1. It will only work for new audible customers. Because I’ve had a subscription in the past, it will not let me join as a student.

    1. Hi Bruce! Any books that you purchase on audible are yours to keep for lifetime. You can access them even if you cancel your membership!
