Audible.com currently has a special TV Offer (www.audible.com/tvoffer) in which new Audible listeners can get two free audiobooks and a 30-day free trial to its gold membership.
Audible’s TV Offer is currently the best available offer that Audible has for new listeners. Individuals that take advantage of the offer will get two audiobook credits and a thirty day free trial to Audible’s gold membership. Audible typically charges users $14.95 per month for a gold membership account, which entitles users to one audiobook credit for month. The gold membership also provides significant discounts on any other audiobook titles that users purchase in a given month.
The special offer does require a credit card to get the two free audiobooks since it’s technically a free trial offer, however, users that aren’t interested in an Audible gold membership can cancel their account before the 30 day free trial is up. Users that cancel before the end of their trial will not have their accounts charged.

Here’s the fine print for Audible’s special TV Offer, “Get your first 30 days of the AudibleListener® Gold membership plan free, which includes one credit, plus a one-time bonus credit. In almost all cases, one credit equals one audiobook. After your 30 day trial, your membership will automatically renew each month for just $14.95, billed to the credit card you used when you registered with Audible. With your membership, you will receive one credit per month plus members-only discounts on all audio purchases. If you cancel your membership before your free trial period is up, you will not be charged. Thereafter, cancel anytime, effective the next billing cycle.”
