Compared with cancelling the membership, there is a better option--putting your account on hold. You can put your account on hold for no more than three months each year.

But you will never receive 1 credit every month. You can keep your membership on hold if you do not want to get credit each month.

Tip 3Ask for the silver membership

This is no quick access to this silver subscription, you have go to Audible customer service page and then start a chat to ask they downgrade your memebership to silver. There is also another way to enroll in silver subscription. When you click on the option"cancel my sunscription", you will be required to choose the reason.

There are also some other deals to get credit. Here is one--"Get a 10$ coupon when you use 3 of your credits by June 26".

Tip 6Don’t Use Audible Credits if Audible Book is $14.95 or less

Since you have to pay for 14.95$ for Audible membership to get 1 credit, if you spend the credit on the audiobook less than 14.95$, it seems that you are not maximizing the value of the credit.

Tip 7Watch for Audible’s special deals

Since Audible offers special deals and daily deals, you really should visit the site frequently to see what they are offering.

Sometime, you will come across 2-for-1 deals. You can keep your credit until there's a 2-for-1 deal with the books you want. What is 2-for-1 deal? 2-for-1 deal means that you can purchase 2 audiobooks with 1 credit or purchase 2 audiobooks while get a third freeone.

Add the Audible books you want to purchase to your wishlist. You will get the notification when they are on sale.

You need to sign up to get those deals to be emailed to you. So keep your eyes on your emails and do not miss out these special deals.

Tip 8Remember your Credit limit

If you do not use the Audible credits, they can roll over, but do not exceed the maximum. Do you know how many credits can you keep in your account? It depends on your membership. Please remember that if you have exceed the limit, your older credits will be removed. That means you will lose your money.

Membership Plan Rollover Limit
Gold Monthly 6 Credits
Gold Annual 18 Credits
Platinum Monthly 12 Credits
Platinum Annual 36 Credits

Tip 9Purchase Audible credit at discounted price

If you are a avid listener, you may need this trick. If all your given credits have been used up, but you want to purchase the new audiobooks. You can go to this page to buy extra credits at the discounted prices. At there, you have to buy 3 credits at once at the discounted prices. Also, the prices for credits will vary for different membership.

Here is the price.

Gold Monthly
$35.88/3
Gold Annual
$29.90/3
Platinum Monthly
$34.41/3

Or if you do not want to purchase 3 credits at once, you can purchase the audiobook directly at 30% discount as the membership.

Tip 10Purchase Audible books at discount price while you've already have the Kindle books

Method 1: Get audiobook companions for your Kindle eBook
If you want to purchase the auidobook version for your Kindle eBooks, please go to Amazon Matchmaker. The Amazon match maker will scan your Kindle library and show different audio companion available for your Kindle eBooks. Ususally, the upgrade price is much lower than you purchase the audio book directly from the Audible.

Method 2: Buy Kindle eBooks while adding audible narration
Thanks to Amazon Whispersync program, you can save a lot of money. If you buy a whispersync for voice enabled kindle eBooks, you can get the Audible version at a huge discounted price. Not all Kindle books have this whispersync supported version.

If you borrow Kindle books from Overdrive with your local library card, you can also get the Audible version for the discounted price. This is really a big trick, but only available for United States. In other area, OverDrive does not offer the Kindle book version.

Tip 11Go through the steps to almost cancel your membership

Audible always tries to keep you as a member and pull you back in if you are going to cancel your membership. If you are going to leave, please ensure you have use all the credits in your account. When you try to cancel the membership, just choose "Its too expensive". If you've been the membership for long time, you will get really surprised offer, such as 3 months membership for 1$, 2o$ gift card and so on. People will get different offers but one thing for sure is that you will save a lot by this way.

  I find your Epubor Audible Converter absolutely most disappointing. I purchased the program and after trying numerous times found it impossible to work properly. I have been in touch with your Support a number of times as well but l just cannot get it to do the conversion. I have now uninstalled the program. Your Epubor Ultimate though works great on Ebooks and l use it often.
