Today’s Dealmaster is headlined by a notable discount on 12-month Audible Gold subscriptions. A year of Amazon’s audiobook service is currently available for $99.50, which is $50 off its usual going rate. The deal also nets you access to 12 audiobooks upfront, instead of Audible’s usual policy of only granting one bonus audiobook a month.
The big catch is that the deal is not available to existing subscribers. That said, it’s a little less restrictive than previous offers of this type, since those who haven’t been a paying Audible subscriber in the past 30 days can take advantage of the deal in addition to first-time subscribers. So if you’ve been thinking of jumping back on the audiobook wagon, this might be a good opportunity to do so. Amazon says the offer will be available until January 31. Just keep in mind that once the discounted year expires, your membership will continue at the standard $150 rate until cancelled. As for whether or not Audible is worth it in the first place, we recommended the service in our most recent Mother’s Day gift guide.If you have no interest in audiobooks, we also have deals on the latest-gen AirPods, lots of charging gear, PlayStation Plus and Xbox Game Pass subscriptions, gaming monitors, Roku TVs, and more. You can check the full rundown below.
