Can You Share Audible Credits?

I wish I could tell you it’s a big group hug for Audible credits, but alas, the answer is no. Audible credits are as precious as pirate treasure and can’t be shared directly with others.

How can we share Audible credits?

You can’t. But There’s Still a Silver Lining!

Although you can’t hand over your credits like sharing cookies, there are other ways to share the audiobook love with friends and family.

  1. Audiobook Gifts: Audible allows you to gift individual audiobooks to your loved ones. It’s like giving them a ticket to a fantastic literary adventure. Just find the audiobook they’ll adore, click the “Give as a gift” option, and enter their email address. Even though you cannot share audible credits, They’ll receive your thoughtful gift in no time!
  2. Family Library Sharing: If you’re part of an Amazon Household, you can share certain content, including audiobooks, with other members in your household. This way, everyone gets to enjoy the audiobooks you’ve purchased. Since you cannot share audible credits, you can instead buy books for them in your account and share the audiobook directly.
  3. Whispersync for Voice: If you have a Kindle e-book with an Audible narration, you can use Whispersync for Voice to switch between reading and listening. This nifty feature syncs your progress across both formats, so you can seamlessly continue your story, whether you’re reading or listening. You can use this if you cannot share audible credits.
  4. Audiobook Club: Start an audiobook club with friends or family! Everyone can get their own Audible membership and share their favorite audiobooks with the club members. It’s a fantastic way to explore new stories and discuss them together.


While you can’t directly share Audible credits, there are still ways to share the joy of audiobooks with your loved ones. Gift audiobooks, explore Whispersync for Voice, create an audiobook club, or share content within your Amazon Household. Spread the audiobook love and keep the storytelling magic alive! Happy listening!
