Greetings, Arsians! The Dealmaster is back with another round of deals to share. We’re kicking things off today with a couple Audible deals exclusively for Amazon Prime members that you can get right now, ahead of Prime Day. Prime members who do not currently have an Audible subscription can get a one-year membership, with 12 credits upfront, for $119.50. You can even add an Echo Dot to your order for just an extra $0.99. Those who don’t want to spend as much and are new to Audible can get a 3-month subscription for just $4.95 per month ($14.85 total), a discount of $10 per month from the regular subscription price.

The one-year subscription deal can save you about $80 in total. A regular year subscription to Audible costs $150 and an Echo Dot cots $50. So getting both of those things for just $121 is a great deal, particularly for those who want to listen to audiobooks around the house using a smart speaker like the Echo Dot. Amazon’s Alexa integrates well with Audible, so you can ask Alexa on the Echo Dot to play any audiobook in your library and it’ll either start from the beginning or pick up where you left off.

If you just want to try Audible for a bit, the 3-month subscription deal will save you approximately $30 over the subscription’s duration. All Audible members can use their credits to redeem any of the company’s thousands of audiobooks, and members have access to daily deals (some books cost just a couple dollars if they are a daily deal) as well as two free Audible Originals per month.

Keep in mind that these deals are only for Prime members who are not currently subscribed to Audible. The discounted prices are only good for the first year or three months of service, respectively, and then they return to regular rates. Audible at least makes it easy to cancel your subscription at any time.

Amazon doesn’t discount monthly or annual Audible memberships often (and we don’t anticipate the price going much lower during Prime Day’s 48-hour run), so now’s the time to give the service a shot if interested—maybe pick up one of Ars’ favorite reads for the summer while you’re at it.

If audiobooks aren’t your thing, we have a bunch of other deals on gaming laptops and monitors, Xbox, PS4, and Switch games, smart TVs, wireless chargers and more. Check out the full list below.
