Audible is a subscription-based service that offers access to a vast library of audiobooks, podcasts, and other audio content. With an Audible subscription, you pay a monthly fee to gain access to the Audible library and enjoy various benefits, depending on the specific subscription plan you choose.

Audible offers different subscription plans, such as Audible Plus and Audible Premium Plus, each with its own features and pricing. These plans may include benefits such as unlimited streaming of a selection of audiobooks, credits that can be used to purchase audiobooks from the entire library, discounts on additional audiobook purchases, access to exclusive content, and more.

  • Audible Plus($7.95/month): Audible Plus is a subscription plan offered by Audible. With Audible Plus, you have unlimited access to a library of thousands of audiobooks, podcasts, and Audible Originals. You can stream and listen to as much content as you want from the included selection, without using credits. However, it’s important to note that Audible Plus does not include all audiobooks available on Audible; it offers a curated collection of titles.
  • Audible Premium Plus($14.95/month or $149.50/year): Audible Premium Plus is a higher-tier subscription plan that provides all the benefits of Audible Plus along with additional perks. With Audible Premium Plus, you receive one credit per month, which you can use to redeem any audiobook from Audible’s entire library, regardless of the price. Additionally, you can also access the Audible Plus catalog and stream as much content as you like. This plan is suitable for those who want both the unlimited streaming access and the flexibility to choose audiobooks using credits.

By subscribing to Audible, you can listen to your favorite books and audio content anytime, anywhere, on your preferred device. The subscription model provides a convenient and cost-effective way to explore and enjoy a wide range of audiobooks and audio entertainment.

If you just want a streaming library of audiobooks and don’t need to own them, then look into Audible Plus membership instead of a Premium Plus membership. Plus membership costs $7.95 per month and gives you access to a collection of thousands of audiobooks and podcasts for the length of the subscription.

You can cancel your Audible membership at any time. Audible provides the flexibility for members to manage their subscription and allows for easy cancellation if desired.

If I cancel Audible do I keep my books?

You can keep books you bought with a credit or cash. They’re yours to keep and will always be available in your Library whether you cancel Audible subscription or not. You can download books you’ve purchased anytime you want, even if you cancel your membership.
