Everything to know about Chirp and their audiobook deals

Want the best discount prices on audiobooks without a required subscription fees or monthly membership? Chirp Books is for you! (Plus don’t miss their $1 deals going on today only!)

A few years ago, I’d never heard of Chirp.

But then I started getting emails from readers asking what I knew about Chirp and that’s always a sure sign I should start investigating.

If you love a good audio book deal, Chirp is for you.


Most audio book apps, like Audible and Everand, are primarily subscription services.

You pay a monthly membership fee and in the case of Audible, you can choose 1 book from their massive audio book collection.

In the case of Everand, you pay that monthly subscription fee and you can listen to as many books as you’d like from their collection.

Chirp is different because it’s a dedicated site for audio book deals with no membership plan or fees.

Publishers put their audiobooks on massive sale all the time, but tracking them all is a massive undertaking.

That’s where Chirp comes in.

Every day, they highlight the best audio book deals, sorted by genre and with information about how long the new deal will last. Some are limited time deals and other audiobook deals will last a bit longer.

The prices are REALLY good (the highest price tag I’ve seen on Chirp book deals is $4.99) and many of the books cost $2 or less.


Plus, their website is very clean and easy to navigate.

And you can sign up for their emails and they’ll send you an email every day with the best deals.

Once you’ve bought an audiobook, you can listen to it on the free Chirp app from your phone or tablet or your can stream it from your computer.

And you own the audiobook, so you have it forever.

And, like Audible, they have a money back guarantee, so if you buy an audiobook and hate it, they’ll give you a refund.

You AREN’T likely to find the biggest newest most popular audiobooks on Chirp (although occasionally you may!) but you can get screaming deals on audio books that are a couple of years old.

Even better? Today only, they’re doing a $1 deal day with 100 titles on sale for only $1 so it’s a great time to try it out for virtually no risk. I snagged Just Don’t Fall (so many people recommended this series to me in the fall and this felt like a great time to try it out!) and Erasing Time by Janette Rallison who I usually love!

I check Chirp every week for my weekend book deals posts and they never disappoint!

One other thing of note about Chirp is that New York Times bestselling audiobooks are always on their site for up to 35% off, which often makes them cheaper than using an Audible credit for them. And if you use the code EVERYDAYREADING30 on your first purchase, you’ll get an extra 30% off which definitely makes them less!

If you try Chirp out, I’d love to hear how you like it! (and if you snag any $1 deals, let me know what you grabbed!).

And if you have questions, let me know and I’ll do my best to answer!

  1. Love Chirp for inexpensive audiobooks in many genres read by talented readers. This is a wonderful source for audio books to fit every taste.

    1. Hi! I recently gifted my sister an audiobook from Chirp, (my very first purchase), however she will not be utilizing it… therefore can we transfer the audiobook to another recipient? (The gifted link has not been opened) … Or perhaps can i get a refund in order to gift it to someone else who will use it?
      Thank you … Jody

  2. I like Chirp and the way it operates. However, is there a way to give a book I bought to someone else?

  3. I would like to listen to these books on my mp3 player but can’t find out how to do that. Where can I find the directions?

  4. I’m interested in submitting my audio book for listeners. How are the authors paid if they offer their books through Chirp?

  5. I have lost a large amount of books from my Chirp library and only have about 10 left please tell me how to get them back I am 91 years old sand I love listening for an hour or so before I go to sleep
    I would be so grateful for your help
    Thank you very much, Elaine

    1. Elaine, check to see if you have the UNREAD filter set. At the top of your screen, on your phone and on the computer, you can change to ALL. If that is the case, all your books should show up there.

  6. I am so excited about Chirp. It does seem too good to be true. I love that the book stays forever. Although I’ll believe it when I see it.

  7. Really like chirp but the one complaint I have is that they’ll sell the first book in a trilogy for a couple of bucks but sell the sequels at full price. Smart marketing but ouch!!

  8. I love the app but can’t figure out for the Life of Me how to delete books once I have finished them. I don’t want an app full of finished books

    1. Did you ever find out. My tablet is so full it won’t work. I have a lot of Chirp books but the advice given on google doesn’t work, deleting is not a choice.

      1. I have the same question. I archived some books I have read in order to free up IPad storage, which is almost full. Where do “archived” books go and can I delete them?

        1. I think I have answered a different question than was being asked above. But, I can answer the question on how to delete the book from your device. Next to the name of the book in the list or in the top right corner of the book screen that you are listening to is a standing ellipse. An ellipse looks like … that. So it’s three periods standing up. Tap on it and it will open a menu of options. Scroll down to Remove Download and tap it. And that is it.

    2. You can’t really “delete” them and, who knows, you may want to listen to them again. However, at the top of the phone app, you can filter your library by: ALL, UNREAD, IN PROGRESS and FINISHED. Just move to the filter you want, which sounds like UNREAD and IN PROGRESS.
