The Amazon Prime Day Audible deals may officially be over, but there's still a great opportunity for new customers to pick up a saving on the audiobook library platform.

Well, actually, we've had promotions running for a couple of days now in both the US or UK. Sadly deals have now finished in the UK, but if you're in the US you haven't missed a thing.

If you're new to Audible, it's Amazon's audiobook subscription service, giving you access to to all sorts of literature and podcasts for a monthly fee. The deals are especially good if you're a new Audible customer, offering months of discounts for first-time listeners.

Put simply, Prime members in the US can take advantage of excellent Prime Day Audible deals right now to bag themselves a hefty discount on an Audible membership. Details are a little different in each territory, but readers on both sides of the pond are looking at at least three months for cheap and free audiobooks in the case of those in the United States.

We've got details on each of these Prime Day Audible deals just down below, including what you'll exactly get with each membership. We don't actually tend to see many promotions like this throughout the year, and subscriptions can be pretty expensive, so we definitely recommend them if you're an audiobook fan looking to stock up the library this Amazon Prime Day.

Frequently asked questions

When will Amazon Prime Day Audible deals be available?

Amazon Prime Day Audible deals will officially begin on June 21 and run through June 22, however we are seeing some excellent free trials already up for grabs. We don't expect offers over the event itself to beat these trials, but you never know. What is likely, however, is a ton of great deals and bundles on Amazon devices - which are absolutely worth waiting for.

Do you need Amazon Prime for these Audible deals?

Yes, for the early Amazon Prime Day Audible deals above you'll need to be an Amazon Prime member to be eligible. The only exception to this is Audible UK's 2-for-1 book sale, which is available for all existing Audible members. 

While that might seem like a bummer, don't be discouraged if you're not a Prime member - picking up the Prime free trial is really easy. You'll get 30-days of free delivery and access to the above Audible deals - effectively bagging you some top-tier Audible membership for less.

The Amazon Prime Day free trial is available throughout the year, but right now's a particularly good time to check it out since you'll get full access to the best discounts over the Amazon Prime Day event.

How good are these Prime Day Audible deals?

They're quite good in our opinion. Audible deals, in general, tend to focus on extended free trials or discounts on yearly memberships, so these discounts on multiple months are like a great halfway house for those who are interested in the service but don't want to shell out for a full year. This year's Prime Day Audible deal in the US is particularly good since you're effectively getting the higher tier of Premium Plus membership for the same price as the standard Audible Plus membership - bagging yourself four free book tokens in the process.

If you're interested in a direct comparison with last year's Prime Day Audible deals, you can see that just below.

What were last year's deals?

Last year's big Prime Day Audible deal was $50 off a full year of Audible Premium Plus membership (normally $149) - a pretty great deal. Getting a full 12 free book tokens at once was definitely awesome, although it did come with that huge trade-off of paying upfront.

Audible Premium Plus (one year): $149.50 $99.50 at Amazon
Prime members who were ready to commit to a whole year could capitalize on a fantastic Amazon Prime Day Audible deal that actually landed before the event kicked off. You could save $50 on a yearly Audible Premium Plus subscription. The membership gave you 12 free book credits up front, and completely unlimited access to the new Audible Plus audiobook library.

In our opinion, 2021's Audible Prime Day deals line-up is probably stronger so far as the barrier to entry is way lower (paying $6.95 for four months vs $99 upfront). That said, some will definitely miss having those 12 free book tokens up front.
