2-for-1 sale at Audible.com for members (YMMV)

+30 Deal Score
7,707 Views
Audible.com is having a 2-for-1 summer sale right now for paid members. Pair this with the free credit you got from the Speedpass+ deal or the recent free credit for return members. I actually did both today. Used the second credit I got from the Speedpass+ deal, cancelled my membership right away, re-enrolled via the second deal link, then cancelled again after the second order. Between me and my wife, we have two audible accounts and were able to repeat the deal on both. That's eight free audible books in five minutes. Couldn't be happier.

YMMV because I am not sure if the Speedpass+ deal is still alive and even if it is, you won't be able to take full advantage of both deals.

The 2-for-1 sale will run for another 4 days from today. I just realized that I cannot post a link to it now that I've cancelled my membership. But it was right there on the homepage once you activate your membership or if you already have an active membership.

Someone with an active membership please post the link and the list of books, if you will. Thanks.

And I would appreciate someone keeping their moral opinion to themselves. Signing up for trial membership with full intention to cancel is not a fraud. And no, doing these deals back to back is not "more bad" than waiting for months in between, unless you hacked your way to such a deal. If you feel more comfortable driving on the "high" way, you of course have every right to. Just.Leave.Me.Alone.

I love these deals. Thanks, OP! Some excellent books: The Girl with All the Gifts, Orange is the New Black, and The Better Angels of Our Nature are three I own and have enjoyed.

Like with most of these, it was a good chance to pick up something I already wanted (Readme by Neal Stephenson) and take a chance on something I'd never before considered (A Man on the Moon: The Voyages of the Apollo Astronauts).

I picked up Gumption by Nick Offerman and Live From New York, the oral history of SNL. FYI - those oral histories make great audiobooks. The MTV one was a blast.

Shady. Signing up with the intent to cancel and get the return member credit was bad enough. To do it on a second account takes it to another level.
And what level is that? Please kindly explain. The two accounts are my account and my wife's. Audible/Amazon didn't have an issue with that. I'm glad you've found moral high ground on a deal forum. Come often.

Passive aggressive comments are not necessary. You are right on one point, people do post shady deals here frequently, but that does not make it right.



Your original post stated you have two accounts. There was no mention of your wife in the original post. If the second account does belong to your wife, then it is "less bad" but Audible may not appreciate you accessing her account.

Signing up with the intent to cancel and get the retention benefit (after collecting the new subscriber benefit) borderlines on exploiting policies in an attempt to defraud the company.
You are absolutely right, sir. Have a nice day.

worked great!

i canceled my previous 2 free credit plan and clicked thru that link and it let me sign up immediately. what are some good 2x1 audible books to listen to?

update: highly recommend these two titles for the 2x1 sale: the better angels of our nature by steven pinker and the greatest: my own story (muhammad ali). at least that's what i went with. good luck!

ps; any good audible channels worth listening to? i haven't been that impressed with the selection.

Morally speaking, corporations make enough money that "exploiting" these deals do not affect them one bit. In fact, sharing these deals/sales just INCREASE their profits! That's why they have loss leader sales during Black Friday.

Audible is owned by Amazon. Jeff Bezos, the CEO of Amazon and currently the richest man on Earth, is worth $130.2 BILLION. Bill Gates is now worth *only* $92.5 Billion.

This deal isn't affecting him or Amazon negatively one bit.

Thanks! I've actually just cancelled the Speedpass membership (after I used the 2 credits) and didn't know about the returning member offer!

More books! Woot!

How'd you find those two? I don't see them on the 2-for-1 page. Are there more titles that are included that aren't listed?

They're both under "Bios and Memoirs".
