Glitch with adding Audible narration. Can possibly get free Audible credit & Amazon $$ - YMMV

The link is for Kindle books that can have Audible narration added for under 3.99. Some titles inaccurately have a higher price for the narration.

I performed these steps with the book Moving Mountains by John Eldredge. The Kindle book cost .99 and the the Audible version could be added for 10.49, even though it was in the "$3.99 or Less" section.

STEPS:
!. I bought the kindle book but before purchasing the Audible narration, I called Amazon.
2. I mentioned that the title was listed in the "Add Narration for $3.99 or Less" section but that the narration came up as 10.49. I asked for the lower price.
3. Amazon rep gave me promotional credit to buy the Audible narration (10.49) and suggested I also call Audible.
4. Called Audible and explained the story again. Audible rep added 1 credit to my account to use for the narration for the kindle book I purchased.

Hopefully this works for you!

Note: You will need to spend some money on this deal but some of the kindle editions are still pretty cheap. Here are links to the cheapest kindle editions (.99) I found that have the most expensive audible narration add-on (over 10.00)

So when you pressed the 3.99 for the narration, you got billed the 3.99? Or got billed more and then you called and they added that to your account?

No worries! I didn't even buy the audible narration yet. I called and mentioned the descrepency. That's when I received the credit "just in case audible doesn't fix it". I was told to go to audible who gave me 1 credit. I haven't even bought the audible book yet lol

How is this a deal when your instructions to replicate this deal are not clear & your title is misleading making people think that everyone can do this? This is NOT a HOT DEAL IMO.
You are probably getting TD's because of this. You need to add YMMV to your title.

Anyone that successfully replicated this deal? Seems to me it is entirely dependent on whether the rep feels generous or not

Amazon Customer Service Rep I got didn't know what to do.
After being put on hold a few times, she transferred me to Audible Customer Service.
Audible person took my info and put me on hold yet again.
After more than 25 minutes on this goose chase, the Audible CS Rep said he couldn't do anything about the "$3.99 or less pricing" on Amazon.
So its now a half hour later and I am off the phone.
I was offered nothing.
