First post. Hope I do it right!

Get any regular price book from Audible and 4 additional books from the 200+ books on sale for $5/each for only $15.

This deal will work for people like me who have already taken advantage of the free and or cheap membership deals and can't get another free or cheap membership.

1) sign up for the $15/monthly plan. You will immediately get 1 credit you can use to download any book. I chose The Martian.

2) next go to your account page and select to cancel your membership. I was offered a $20 account credit to not cancel.

3) accept the $20 credit and it will appear right away.

4) purchase 4 books from the $5/book sale using this credit.

5) cancel your service again. This time for real.

This worked for me. Not sure if the $20 account credit will be offered to everyone. Give it a try.
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

You're doing it right buddy, the only problem is that this only works randomly and rarely for people who've been offered before...

Yep, way to go to get the bang for your $$ but this is very YMMV.

Got the offer, but it wasn't applied to my account because I accepted it in the past, so I cancelled my membership fully. Don't offer me something and then not give it to me, Audible. It's not hard to check my account to see if I've accepted the offer in the past, and not offer me anything. That's literally one flag in a database and a case/if statement. It's 10 times worse to make me an offer and then renege, than it is to not make any offer at all. Probably won't resub for a while, because that annoys me more than anything.

Update: I didn't get the credit, but when I went to cancel, my downgraded Gold membership (I was Platinum and attempting to get the free credit downgraded me to Gold) they offered me a free book from a list, so I got Ender's Game for free. Good enough to keep my membership, I guess :-). I'll probably just upgrade to Platinum again now.

My local library has audiobooks for free rental. They also have a ton for free download via some app, offer others in an mp3 player, and have thousands in book on CD format, which I then burn and listen to for personal use only or listen to in my car while commuting.

Save big bucks simply by using your local library. You already pay taxes, so take advantage of it. Rarely is there a book that I can't get on CD. For newer releases I might have to request a hold or join the wait list. Buts usually only a few week.

I probably do 50-75 books a year via books on CD from my library. Audible is never going to beat free, plus a few late fees.

You make great points. Except this one, they aren't free. Time really is money.

But you're right that most people would be surprised what's available to them online via a library in their town or state.
