How to Get Audible on Amazon Prime? (Explained)

There are a few ways to get Audible on your Amazon Prime membership. If you’re already a member, you can download and listen to Audible titles as part of your membership, or you can buy them separately.

If you’re not an Amazon Prime member but want to listen to Audible books without paying for an Audible subscription, there is a way. However, it’s not available for every country or region.

In this article, I will explain the Amazon Prime and Audible connection and how to benefit from this most for your specific needs.

Here’s How to Get Audible on Amazon Prime:

To get started with Audible on Amazon Prime, open the Amazon app on your phone and tap “Audible”. You’ll see options for downloading books directly onto your device or listening on the app. If you have an existing Audible account, sign in. If not, tap “Get Started” to create an account.

Is Audible Free to Use for Amazon Prime Members?

Audible is a great service for audiobooks and other spoken content.

You can get access to thousands of titles from Audible’s library, which is updated weekly with new content.

Amazon Prime members can enjoy Audible for free, but there are some limitations. Here are the details:

  • You can listen to two books per month as part of your Amazon Prime membership. If you’re an Audible member, you’ll be charged $14.95 per month, minus any discounts you may have received when signing up for a subscription or purchasing audiobooks. If you’re not an Audible member and want to listen to more than two books per month via Amazon’s streaming service, brace yourself for a monthly charge of $14.95 unless you cancel your membership before the end of the first year.
  • If you want additional titles beyond what’s included in your subscription — say, if you want to purchase an audiobook that isn’t available on Amazon — then you can do so at Audible’s website at audible.com/amazonprime or by downloading an app for iOS or Android devices (but not on an Apple Watch).

To get Audible on Amazon Prime, follow these steps:

  • Sign up for Audible. If you don’t already have an account with Audible, visit www.audible.com/prime and enter your email address, choose your book preference (audio or print) and country of residence, then click “Next.”
  • Complete the registration process by entering your name, address and payment information (if applicable). If you previously purchased an Audible title through Amazon, use your previous email address at checkout so that it doesn’t need to be verified again during registration.
  • Or follow the steps in the previous section.

Can You Pay for Audible Via Amazon Prime?

Amazon Prime members can listen to Audible audiobooks for free.

Audible is Amazon’s audiobook service. It lets you listen to books on your smartphone, tablet, or computer. The service is supported by advertising, but if you’re an Amazon Prime member, you can listen to Audible content for free.

How does this work? When you buy an Audible audiobook from the Amazon website, it will be listed as part of your free monthly Prime membership. You don’t need to do anything else — just click on the title and start playing it immediately.

You can pay for an Audible subscription directly through Amazon Prime.

If you don’t already have an Audible account, you can sign up for one at Amazon.com/Audible and use the same credit card or bank account information as your Amazon Prime payment method.

If you already have an Audible account, but would like to change your payment method, please contact Customer Service at 1-800-201-7575 or email them at Audible@amazon.com

How Much Does Audible Cost for Amazon Prime Members?

Audible is a subscription service that allows you to listen to audiobooks on your phone, computer or tablet. It’s available for Android, iOS and Fire devices.

You can also access the service through an Audible app on your desktop computer. Amazon Prime members get Audible included in their membership, so they don’t have to pay anything extra when they sign up.

Audible offers two types of subscriptions: a $14.95 monthly plan and an annual plan for $149.50 per year — a savings of $10 per month over the monthly rate. The annual plan also comes with two free audiobook credits every month, so you can download one book each month at no cost. If you cancel after the first 30 days, you will be charged $14.95 for any unused credits on your account.

As mentioned before though, Amazon Prime members are limited in the number of books they can download and listen to for free using Audible. if you need to listen to more books then a subscription will be necessary.

Amazon Prime members can get Audible for $6.95 a month. This is the same price as Audible’s standard monthly plan, but it comes with a lot more features.

Does Audible Ever Have Discounts and Offers for Prime Members?

Audible currently does not offer any discounts or special offers for Amazon Prime members.

However, it’s worth noting that if you’re already an Audible member, you can sign up for Amazon Prime at no extra cost to yourself.

Are There Any Benefits on Audible for Prime Customers?

If you are an Amazon Prime member, Audible offers some additional benefits:

  • First, you’ll get unlimited listening on the audiobook app and Kindle e-reader apps (iPhones and iPads).
  • Second, you can use Alexa voice commands to play audiobooks without having to touch your phone or tablet at all — just say “Alexa play my book” or “Alexa stop.”
  • And thirdly, if you’re ever late returning one of your books (or forget it altogether), Amazon will just let it slide rather than charge you late fees or penalties.
  • Lastly. One advantage Audible Gold has over the monthly plan is that you get two credits per month instead of one. These credits allow you to download one audiobook per month for free from any category except for “bestsellers.” The only restriction is that your second credit can’t be used for an audiobook in the same category as your first credit — so if your first credit was for fiction, neither can your second.

Prime members get some great perks, including free two-day shipping on most items, free same-day delivery in eligible zip codes, unlimited access to Amazon Instant Video, and more. But for audiobook fans, the best perk is the discount on Audibles.

If you’re already a Prime member or want to sign up for a free 30-day trial, you can get two months of Audible membership for just $7.50 per month (normally $14.95).

This includes access to more than 500,000 audio programs from top publishers and narrators like Stephen King, John Grisham, Mark Twain and more! You’ll also be able to download titles onto your smartphone or tablet so you can enjoy them anywhere — even when away from WiFi access!

Conclusion

Amazon Prime offers a lot of great features, but the one that’s most popular is the Audible subscription.

In fact, if you’re already a Prime member, then making the switch to Audible is a no-brainer. If you’re not a Prime member, then you should consider it because Audible is one of the best deals in town.

If you’re an Amazon Prime member, you can get a free audiobook each month from the Audible Channels subscription service. You can also get discounts on some of the more expensive audiobooks.

Audible offers two types of subscriptions: monthly and annual. The monthly plan costs $14.95 per month, whereas the annual plan costs $149 (which works out as $12.99 per month). Both plans include access to Audible Channels — which gives you one free audiobook every month — as well as discounts on certain titles in the store and free shipping on orders over $25.
