SAVE $9/MONTH: If you’re looking for a last-minute digital deal for someone in your life, Amazon is offering four months of Audible Premium Plus for only $5.95/month through Dec. 31 — that’s 60% off the usual cost of $14.95/month.
So, you waited until the last minute to purchase holiday gifts once again. No worries, procrastinators. There’s still ways to conquer your Christmas shopping without breaking a sweat. Digital deals are one of our favorite ways to snag gifts without having to worry about the shipping chaos — and Audible subscriptions are included on that list.
As of Dec. 21, you can snag an Audible Premium Plus subscription for just $5.95 per month for four months. That’s a whopping 60% off the usual monthly cost and $2 cheaper than a more basic Audible Plus subscription. Better yet, this deal is live through Dec. 31, so if you completely forget to grab a gift for someone, you can snag a subscription even after the holidays or use the cash you received to sign up yourself.
You’ll need to use a hack if you’re going to gift this deal
An Audible Premium Plus subscription is a great way to expand entertainment options beyond music and TV streaming services. It unlocks access to hundreds of Audible Originals, audiobooks, sleep tracks, meditation programs, and podcasts (including exclusive series), exclusive access to members-only discounts, plus a credit to purchase any title in the premium selection per month — regardless of the price.
It may be a bit tricky to secure the Audible membership savings as a gift this way, as Amazon likes to make things complicated for no reason. In fact, on the “gifting” page for Audible, memberships are full price. So, here’s what we’re thinking: Ask your recipient for their Amazon log-in details and purchase the deal through their account directly with your credit card. Just make sure to cancel the subscription before the four-month period is up or you’ll be in for a rude awakening when it jumps back up to full price. And if that’s all too complicated, you can still take advantage of the subscription for yourself.
