Audible: 3 more months for free for existing users. YMMV.

+4 Deal Score
9,699 Views
Audible typically offers a one month trial (rarely a 2 month trial) and if you've already used that trial, you typically won't get any more free months. But I stumbled upon possibly a glitch.

My 2 month trial was expiring and I went to "Switch Membership" page, where I saw this -
"Samsung Galaxy 3 month gold free trial" (see attached image).

I contacted the cc. The rep said only new users are eligible for this free trial and existing users won't get another free trial. I switched to this plan anyway. And.... I now have 3 more months of free Audible. I contacted another rep after making the switch and he confirmed that I now have free trial till 6/15.

Caution: It is of course highly YMMV. So, even if you see the plan on your page, switch to it on your own risk. Don't blame me if you get charged on switching to it.

Steps to get the deal:
  1. Login into your audible account and go to https://www.audible.com/switch-membership
  2. Check whether you have "Samsung Galaxy 3 month gold free trial" as one of the alternate plans.
  3. If you do, click select and confirm switch on the next page. And voila.
  4. You can verify that you didn't get charged by going to Review membership charges [audible.com] page. (See the other attached image.)

can you share a link to the offer? I'm a new customer but don't see this anywhere.

Did you ever have a Samsung Galaxy 3 with Audible installed?

Your screenshots seem to indicate you were on a plan already (link just redirects to the account page for me), so I'm wondering if it knows you had that phone at some point in time.

My other account did let me switch.. not seeing anything yet under membership history, will update later.
It's showing a success though:
Plan: You are currently a member of
Samsung Galaxy 3 Month Gold Free Trial

Looks like it worked, to an extent, for me. I was 2 days away from the end of my initial 30 day trial and switched to this (I DO have a Samsung Galaxy S7 with Audible on it). Now my account has 1 credit. Says "Next Credit Date" is 4/20/17... It's ambiguous if they'll bill me then. But regardless, thanks OP! I saw this option last week but was too scared to pull the trigger Big Grin

This particular offer didn't work for me. But I found a way to get a free book credit.

I've been a longtime Platinum member. When I signed in and ir dint work I hit cancel membership.

It offered me two options besides canceling: to downgrade to gold for less money or to take one credit for free to keep Platinum so I still got a free credit

This worked for me today.

I cancelled my membership last month. Today got offer to renew for one month trial. Went to Amazon and got the same but with two credits, joined, used my two credits then went to change membership and saw the offer for Samsung Galaxy 3 Month Gold Free Trial, so I switched, did not get charged and now have another credit and 3 more to come in my account.

Thanks OP

Audible is great with all these free books!!!

I just tried this and it worked as well. I was a couple days away from my initial 30 day trial ending. I selected this new plan and immediately received a new credit. I did a support chat session and they verified that my trial was good until 9/26 and I would then be charged on 10/26. So I will get two more credits over the next 2 months.

I didn't even see this post until after I did this. I had Googled the plan name and found this, so I figured I'd confirm it does work.
