How to Save Money on Audible.com audiobooks
My one greatest weakness has always been, and most likely always will be TV. Well, in today’s world, you could replace the word “TV” with Netflix or some other form of on-demand movies and TV. It’s actually a bit embarrassing the volume I’ve consumed over the years, and to make it worse, it includes some poor quality shows, as well as the high quality ones. Past sins include watching Leprechaun 3 during law school finals and binge-watching the entire Iron First series. Not sure I’ve hit rock bottom, yet.
Fortunately, I also love books, but the challenge has always been finding the time to read them. Enter an amazing hero - audiobooks! Either through your local library or from a service like Audible, you can listen to books on your commute. While I still love a printed book the most, if I’m honest I consume about 80-90% of my books via audio these days and it has been a tremendous benefit.
Think about it this way. Let’s say you have a one hour commute. Thirty minutes in and thirty minutes out. An average audiobook takes about 5 hours to listen to. So if you just listen to it on your commute, you will finish one book a week and about 50 books a year! Think about the amount of additional knowledge and enjoyment you could be getting without changing your schedule one iota!
Oh, the saving money bit. I recently cancelled my Audible subscription. When I tried to cancel, they tried to keep me as a customer by offering me the next 3 months at 50% off. So by trying to cancel, I could be saving money. So if you’re like me and you love audiobooks, but you also love saving money, try cancelling and see if you get this offer.
