How Does the Audible Free Trial Work?

- Find and press the ‘Click to Try Audible Free’ button on their homepage
- On the next screen, you’ll be asked to sign in to your Amazon account. (If you don’t have an Amazon account, you’ll need to register for one. But who doesn’t have an Amazon account?)
- The next screen can be seen in the image below. You will see the last 4 digits of your accounts preferred credit card. This is for the billing once the 30-day Audible free trial has ended. The next step is simply clicking the ‘Start Free Trial’ button

If you realise that you love listening to audiobooks, you can allow the Audible Free Trial to come to an end in order to receive your second Audible credit. Alternatively, if you finish your audiobook before the month’s end you can start your paid subscription straight away.

Go to the page of the audiobook that you want to purchase (freely), add it your cart and then you will see the option to use your Audible free trial credit.
One tip that we highly advise all of our readers to do is to download the Audible app. This is available on iOS, Android and Windows devices.
The Audible Free Trial Benefits
The Audible free trial is one of the most generous audiobook free trials on the market! Upon signing up with your Amazon account you will receive two free Audible credits if you’re based in America.
If you’re located in the U.K. or any other country for that matter you will receive one free Audible credit. Audible credits are redeemed for audiobooks in the Audible store, 1 credit = 1 audiobook.
Also, the Audible free trial is available for 30 days. During this time you will also be able to listen to not one, but two Audible Originals. These are exclusive audiobook series from the Audible Studios.
Audible Free Trial for Prime Subscribers
If you are already a member of Amazon Prime sometimes there will be special promotions for all customers that haven’t yet tried Audible. In the past, the Audible free trial has been extended to a 90-day free trial instead of the usual 30 days. They have even offered 3 audiobooks instead of the standard 1 or 2.
