In this article, you will learn the step by step process (with pictures) to gift Audible membership to someone.
But before you proceed to purchase the gift, here are some of the important things you should know regarding the Audible membership gift:
- You cannot gift Audible membership using your own Audible credits. You will have to purchase it from Audible Gift Center and then gift it.
- You don’t have to be an Audible member to gift Audible membership to someone. You can do it from your Amazon account itself.
- If the person to whom you are sending the Audible membership gift is already an existing Audible member, then he will receive the credits of the gift all at once.
For example, a 6-month gift membership to an existing member will add 6 credits to their account immediately. Their current membership plan will not be extended and they will still be charged as usual on their next billing date.
- If the recipient isn’t an existing member, then he will get one credit each month up to the number of months in the gift plan (Like Audible Gold Monthly membership plan). Besides, he will also enjoy all the benefits of an Audible member.
- Audible credits for the gifted membership remain active for one year from the date they are issued. After that, they expire. Read Audible gifts terms to know more.
You can gift Audible subscription via Audible as well as Amazon’s official website. However, it is more easy and convenient to gift it via Amazon as you can fill all details and choose your customizations on the same page.
