Not a current member and I signed up for $2.95!

This is their unlimited rental romance package. I've been wanting to read the Kiss Quotient so this was perfect! Hope it works for everyone!

Careful all, this does not provide credits used to purchase books. Instead it is a streaming subscription.

It's a streaming service, yes, in which you can listen to up to 10 romance books (if included) at a time.

Much like regular audible books, you don't own the material, only the right to listen to them unless you circumvent the law and find a way to rip audible books to another non DRMed format. The difference is that this acts like a lending library, giving a person a chance to try out new authors or genres.

IMO this deal can't be beat for the price.

This is to compete with Scribd subscription service which recently lowered their rates and boosted their availability and selection. Scribd is a MUCH better value than Audible for avid readers who want to enjoy more than one book a month...

Thanks. I'll check it out. Hopefully they have some non romance selections for a good price.

I've been using scribd for over a year now. Here's how i use it. You really only get 3-5 audiobooks a month and you will be on a restriction for the first month. But i normally download 2-3 books a month and next thing i know, i have like 10 books downloaded to choose from even after you hit your limit (3 weeks in to every month). Then i switch over to past purchases from audible or hoopla audiobooks. They never limit ebooks though and even after you hit your limit, most audiobooks under 5 hours are still available. It's not perfect but it's helped me get through 70 books in 14 months

I haven't had download limitations with Scribd. They also usually have a groupon deal for new subs for something like $5 for 2 months with unlimited downloads. Otherwise it's usually like $9/mo. The issue I had with Scribd is their selection isn't always the greatest and it changes every so often, so you can't rely on the books to always be available. Also the app isn't as polished as the app for Audible, but it's usable.

This is an example groupon deal for them for new customers only:

Is this a subscription service just for the romance category?

Is audible regular good? What are these 12 credits? For the audio books? Then you get 1 per month?
