With this plan, you are given a free book per month. This is a good deal if you like listening to several audiobooks. Thus, you can save a lot of money in the long run. There is also another hidden Silver plan in which members are charged $15 every two months.

Surprisingly, Audible does not advertise its Silver plan. For instance, you cannot join it without first asking. You need to upgrade your membership. Also, you can contact the customer support by chat, email, or phone. Remember that Silver is not an advertised program so that you might be turned down.

Save Your Credits

You can easily save credits until you need them. If you do not have time to listen to your favorite books, you can stop paying for the credits that you do not use. However, this does not mean you cancel the membership as you may end up losing your credits. Fortunately, Audible allows you to hold credits. You can put your account on hold for three months but once a year. In addition, you are free to listen to your collection of books, get discounts, and spend the existing credits. However, you cannot generate new credits. It is an innovative way of saving some extra cash or taking a break.

Use WhisperSync

However, you should purchase the two versions first. Another important feature to utilize is Amazon Matchmaker. It can scan the Kindle library and look for matching audiobooks and give the discounted price for each title. In this case, you get a discount for purchasing the audiobook version of the ebook you have. Thus, you can save your credits for expensive audiobooks.
