FYI I know this is not a NEW deal, so please don't flame me. This post is for those that likely already signed up for the Audible trial as an Amazon Prime member (2 books instead of 1) so you may be able to do it again.

I have had this promo pop up in my Audible deal alerts many times and each time it said "You've already enjoyed a 30-day free trial. Check out all the benefits of membership and join us!".

This past week I let my Prime membership lapse because we weren't using the benefit and I am still using some of the $67 gift memberships I sent to myself a few years back. The only thing I can think of that reset my account in regards to this Audible trial for Prime members is that my memberhip lapsed. I noticed that this is available both on my account and my wife's. We recently cancelled our $1.95 for 3 Month Travelzoo promotions, so most certainly Audible must know we were previous members.

So, if you are coming up on a prime anniversary / renewal, check the link below to see if it is available. If not, go ahead and let your Prime membership lapse, then reactivate and see if the Audible for Prime membership is available again and report back with your results.

**Obviously if you are on one of the "Grandfathered" 4 member Prime accounts, don't let your membership lapse, or you'll be converted to the "household" program limiting it to 2 adults (Shipping & Video shared) + 2 kids.

Hopefully if you're an Audible junkie like me, you found this post helpful. As we all know it is getting harder and harder to get new trials to keep the costs down. As much as I love the service, I can't bear to pay full price!

I had hoped there for a moment.

FYI, I went to cancel, and while this is not new, I have ran out of the "keep listening" offers before... Low and behold, $20 credit was offered again. Just saying, maybe check.

I checked just after posting this and redeeming on my wife's account (Prime household member) and it appears that it detected her trial under my Prime account and said I'm no longer eligible. If for some reason someone gets this available and has a household member, I suggest getting both accounts to checkout at the same time before clicking submit on both.

My loss is your gain!

This deal just worked for me. I just finished my $1.95 3-month membership from Travelzoo and cancelled Audible about an hour ago and saw this on Amazon and tried it out. I had even redeemed the Audible Prime offer earlier in the year so I thought I would not be eligible for this offer. Plus, I don't believe it is connected to my Prime membership renewal since my membership does not renew until Jan 2017.

I wonder if this deal works for those who took advantage of the Travelzoo offer and have since cancelled.

Try it out to see if it works for you!
