There is an "Ebook Buying Addict Support Thread" (under "General Discussions)" on MobileRead. I can see that someone needs to start one for "Audiobook Buying" [if there isn't one, already-I didn't see it if there is].

I'm only halfway kidding--some people must be more addicted to audiobooks than ebooks--I don't understand why.

I greatly favor audiobooks over ebooks. However, I don't think that I am nearly at the point of buying them just for the purpose of having them--I listen to them just about as much as I have time to, and in the rare cases where I get an audiobook that I don't like, I "delete it from my device." When I buy an ebook, I do it for mainly professional research/reference purposes. Or, at least, that's what I tell myself.

(I wonder if there is such a thing as an "Ebook Buying Addicts Anonymous" and/or an/or "Audiobook Buying Addicts Anonymous.")

Yes, I'm aware of that limitation. It's almost always there as part of any of these sorts of giveaways. But for those who are (or can be) resident in the UK, it's a pretty nice batch of swag.

Two free months at Audible thanks to Planet Fitness (link). It worked for me, even though I just finished a free membership less than 6 months ago and did the $0.95 for two months Groupon. Supposedly comes with a $15 Amazon gift card, though I haven't seen that yet.

Enjoy!

I hadn't gotten the email by yesterday, so I called audible to ask about it. The rep checked with a manager, and sent me a $15 promo code right then by email which I immediately applied to an Amazon order. Awesome.

My son also hadn't gotten an email, so I called for him. The new rep said nope, this is only for NEW members, not RETURNING members so no way, no how, no promo credit for you!
I was slightly confused, because both my son and I are returning members with a similar history of using trial offers like this, and I was given the promo, but he was refused. Well, so be it.
But just because the inconsistency was on my mind, I asked the rep why I was able to sign up for the deal at all if I wasn't eligible for all of it. usually if returning members aren't included, the offer simply rejects us.
He said "yeah, that sounds like a glitch. How about I add two additional free credits to your account to make up for it?"
Umm...sure, thanks!

Punchline: My son got the promo email today, and the $15 was applied to his account.
Sometimes it's nice when the left hand doesn't know what the right is doing.

Actually it turned out this was the charge for the second month of the 99 cent promo I had just cancelled. Forgot about that.

It varies. They dinged my CC when I started the promo. Still waiting for them to reverse the charge.
