Deal Details

UPDATE: Appears you can get one of the following:
-$20 credit
-3 months of Gold for $7.49/month
-1 free credit

I've been with audible for a while and spent some bucks with them so this may not work for everyone, but if you have a membership and have had it for more than a couple of months this will probably work, and is worth a shot.
  1. Log into your account and in the upper right hand corner of the screen, click on the membership plan listed between your name and the number of credits you have.
  2. Click on "Change my membership"
  3. Down at the bottom of the screen, click "Cancel Membership"
  4. The next screen will present you with a drop down box and ask why you want to cancel. I chose "My membership plan doesn't work for me." I'm not sure if your selection matters, but to be safe you might want to duplicate my choice. Click "Continue."
  5. On the next screen, Audible should offer you a $20 credit towards your next purchase if you agree not to cancel. Agree, and on the next screen load you will see it listed in the "Available Balance" in the upper right of your account.

*Note - if you have credits available and you actually go through with the cancellation, you will loose them, so don't confirm your cancellation unless you spend them first!

Sweet. I just got this same deal. I signed up through amazon last month and just had my monthly anniversary. It showed that I have been a member since 2005 though. Maybe that was how long I have been buying from Amazon...

Thanks OPhug

Thanks Since customer service is closed - do you know if this can be purchased with Amazon credit - and how do you access site? Inother words, if I am buying as a gift for someone else - will they have to use my email to sign in to the account?

While I have nothing against audiobooks, you do understand that listening is not reading, right?

That cracks me up. How else can you use it besides to buy a book? It won't pay for my prostitutes and I sure can't trade em for foodstamps.

all i wanted was to move my renewal date for my credits to the beginning of the month (normally the middle of the month) so i can get new books now, but i couldn't get any answer from them. i did as you all said: I just asked to cancel, got a $20 credit for downgrading my plan from platinum to gold, used the $20 to buy the item i wanted today (balance due: $2.00) and then upgraded my account back to platinum.

i don't see why they have to be so anal: I wasn't trying to get over on them, or to get something for free; I would have used my normal monthly credits had they only responded.

absolutely, but ever since grad school i've consistently retained about 80% of every lecture and seminar I've attended, as long as i took notes (i seem to have to actually hand write them one time), so while its not *reading* it is good for a guaranteed "B". If I actually read the book and take detailed notes I'm good for > 90% retention after 6 months or more (6 months is the longest i've tested) so for anything in my field I read and everything else i listen, when possible... I love Audible..

I've been an audible.com member for some time now but I'm about to drop my membership (just not using it as much anymore).
However, I'm concerned about not being able to listen to my books at some point - for example, if I put a new hard drive in my computer or change computers or mp3 players. The DRM they load the books with doesn't really make it so easy, you know? And once I cancel my membership, I don't have much confidence that I could come back a year later and say 'hey, I can't get my books to play on my new computer/mp3 player/etc' and get much in the way of support.

I wanted to rip my books but the best software I can find for that seems to be audial/tunebite and it seems to need me to have itunes. I don't have or want itunes. Does anyone have any suggestions for how to rip/convert existing .aa into .mp3?

Thanks.

(pls no lectures on what's legal and what's not vis a vis DRM. I bought the books, I intend to be able to play them as I please.)
