Last year I started a free Audible trial which I liked so much, I decided to keep the service activated after the trial ended. My growing Audible library helps me keep checking out books I've always wanted to read but didn't have time for. Whether driving, doing chores, or running to the store, once you get accustomed to listening to audiobooks, you might find yourself listening everywhere. Audible gives you one credit per month which can be traded for any audiobook offered on its site, while other audiobooks can be purchased separately with a 30% member discount. You also receive two free Audible Originals each month, which are exclusive audio titles that aren't available anywhere else, and there's usually a handful to choose from. Plus, if you don't like an audiobook you purchase, you can return it for any reason. Audiobooks from Audible can be listened to via the Audible app on your phone or tablet, on your computer, or even on newer Kindle E-readers.

Once subscribed, you'll receive an e-mail within 48 hours detailing how to score your $1 Echo Dot. A credit will be applied to your Amazon account automatically that discounts its regular price of $50 down to only $0.99 when you reach checkout. The Echo Dot is great to have with an Audible membership. It's a voice-activated speaker which lets you give commands like "Alexa, Play Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone on Audible" and begin listening instantly.
