This feels kinda ... meh. Does anyone see something whose price actually improves on how much you'd pay for a credit?

You get 12 credits up front on signing up. As long as you use all 12 credits, you can cancel it. That said, I've accepted the deal as an adequate price point even though you can probably ninja a lower per-credit price by signing up, canceling, etc., mostly because it's more effort to do it that way and also because Audible = Amazon and I don't want to get on the bad side of Amazon. I used to sign up/cancel, but stopped when this annual deal came along. Not saying that would necessarily put you on their naughty list, but an Amazon blacklisting would be really, really inconvenient.

If you sign up for the annual $99.99 sale when it comes around, that credit/purchase threshold drops to $8.33.

If you're an Audible member, aren't most titles usually around 50% off?

Usually only 30%
"Members receive a number of great benefits from Audible, including monthly or annual credits that can be exchanged for any audiobook, two Audible Originals of your choice each month, the ability to keep unused credits for up to a year before they expire, a 30% discount off the regular price of all credit card purchases, and risk-free audiobook exchanges."

Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss if I'm seeing this right. It's hard to tell since I already bought it during one of their big yearly sales. American Gods by Neil Gaiman.

Meh. Most are 50% off and not 70%. Will still pick up a couple of books.

I was looking at a Drew Hayes novel, and it looks a little cheaper than it was at 50% off. Not much used if you still have credits to burn, though.

I think this is good for a supplement for credits. I basically burn through 2 books a month since I can listen during work, my commute, and on sleep timer at night.

I picked up a book on my wish list for $4. If it's less than $15, it's not worth a credit, right?

That's how I always look at it. More than $15 and I use a credit, less than $15 and I just buy it and use the credit on another more expensive book I want. Granted I listen to a lot, so may end up costing more money for people to do it this way if they weren't planning on getting the books.

Yea, the 2 books for 1 credit is usually a MUCH better deal, but those sales only include "selected" titles.
For this deal, the higher-priced books, even at 50-70% off, sometimes still cost more than the value of a credit, especially if you got a deal on the credits.

Picking up some of the lower-priced books while this sale is on would make more sense though. I usually put books that aren't worth a whole credit into my wishlist, and wait for a sale like this (or a 2-for-1 sale, but usually the ones on my list don't end up being in the 2-for-1). Then when the sale is on, I go to my wishlist and sort by lowest price.

I tend to lean away from that deal as from my understanding, it locks you into a premium account for 12 months. I continuously am able to get the different trials every few months for credits either free or a few dollars each. Does the annual one not lock you in for a year? I haven't actually paid $15 for a credit in like a year.

Forgot about that. Since I have a backlog, I tend to get the deals as they come along (e.g. $7.95 for 3 mo) and cancel when they elapse. I will say, as someone who was originally on the fence about Audible, I love it and find myself coming back more and more.
