Amazon vs. Audible – Who Can Charge You More?

Posted in Books, Rant at 9:42 am by Jason G.

I just looked at a book on Amazon.com and noticed that it had an “audio download” version available for $9. When I clicked on the link, the price of the audio download jumped to $19.95?!?! What up with that?

Ahhh… the curse of e-commerce partnerships. I am a subscriber to Audible and was currently logged in. If I weren’t logged in, I would see the $9 price. But, since I dutifully give Audible money every month as part of my subscription, I am subjected to a higher price.

Nice job Audible and Amazon. You both appear shady as hell when you pull stunts like this.
