Yeah. I can see where when it's a two-for-one sale, it can be worth getting one kinda-sorta want to hear for the sale of getting another for free. But to blow two credits you could use on two books you really want to hear for three books of marginal interest? A poor value, IMO.
Yep, this is a horrible way to spend two credits. The least they could've done was to let you buy any two books from their entire catalog and then let you pick a third one for free from the promo list.

It's in Audible's best interests to make sure members have 0 credits available at all times. That's why they have these types of sales. That way when another good book a member is interested in becomes available, they're forced to either buy more credits or pay member pricing for it. Monkey sees through their "evil" plan

Maybe with this particular kind of sale. But how do you explain the periodic sales that Amazon has, where all audiobooks--and you can get all that your little ole' pea-picken heart desires--are, say, just $5.95 each? And usually, if not always, we "Inactive Listeners" (I still hate that moniker!) can participate. And we only pay a measly (sp?) $9.95 per year for that privilege? What's your theory for that Mr. Monkey? Huh? huh?

FREE Audible Audiobooks. Not a Gimmick.

Get an Audible audiobook _free_, once every one or two weeks.

That's the promise of a small publisher, Lighthouse Publishing Company, of North Carolina (LPC).

"Surely, there has to be a "catch" or a "gotcha." Not that I could find. There are a couple of reasonable caveats and conditions. One is that you don't get to choose specific audiobooks--you do get to choose the genre(s) that you want to receive audiobooks from, however. There are about 6 or 7 genres. Secondly, you must agree to be put on a mailing list; however, if it's the one that I've been on, the messages are not all that frequent, and in the ones that you do get, there are frequent offers of _free_ ebooks!

Observing LPC over the last 3 years or so, I am impressed by their high standards in ebook publication. I expect the same high quality in the choices of audiobooks that they will be offering.

How it works, as I understand it, is that you receive an Audible code. You plug that code into the appropriate place on the Audible website. And then you get the _free_ download.

LPC publishes books intended for Christians. But the religious aspect in most of their books appears to be subdued. I expect that the policy behind that will carry over into their audiobook offerings.

Quote:
Arthur Nakai Mysteries (book 1)

The battle is one of wits and cunning, where the strong heart will overcome his enemy.

Ex-marine Arthur Nakai spent years as a member of the Shadow Wolves, an ICE tactical unit tasked by the US government to hunt human traffickers and drug smugglers on the US/Mexico border. He put that life of confronting violence in the darker contours of the desert landscape behind him and settled into a quiet existence in New Mexico with his wife, Sharon, a local TV reporter.

But when Sharon goes missing after crossing paths with a serial killer who has just added to his list of young victims, Arthur’s calm world is shattered. He must return to the darkness of the life he left behind in order to save what matters most to him, and the future he and his wife plan to share together. He can only hope that she is still alive, and that his skills will be enough to find her.

So begins the hunt—to find a ruthless killer and save the love of his life.

Amazingly enough, I just got the $5 credit, even though my only pre-order was a freebie:

Quote:

Happy listening!

And yet, I pre-ordered a full book, and nothing. Sigh. I HATE having to deal with support! I don't have TIME for this. For $5, it really doesn't make sense to spend a half hour trying to get it sorted.

OK, I confess. It took me longer to figure out how to get them to open a chat window than it did to get them to issue the credit once I had it open.
