About this Deal
In case you thought America's favorite warehouse chain truly had it all, think again. Costco just quietly started selling audiobooks.
They are available through a free phone app and on Costco's website. Members can sign in a purchase individual audiobooks for some, while nonmembers can buy collections of biographies, nonfiction, mysteries, cookbooks, and more, according to Good E Reader. It isn't known how long the service has been available since Costco didn't formally announce it, but Fox Business says the app was released around early March, and there is only one collection and one book each with one review.

Collections range from around $6 to around $45. No price is listed for the single audiobooks, so members must log in to find out. Good E Reader says the cost of a Costco membership means members are getting a better deal compared to other audiobook services like Audible, Barns and Noble, and more. It mentions a collection of three biographies for $29.99 is $10 less than what Audible charges for just one.
News of Costco audiobooks comes right as experts are predicting a rise in membership costs. They come about every 5.5 years, and the last one was in 2017. That year a Gold Star Executive membership went up $10 to $120 annually, while the Gold Star Everyday membership increased $5 to $60.
Luckily, there are ways to keep saving money (besides on audiobooks) at your local warehouse right now. Here are the 7 Best Costco Food Deals For Spring.
