AudioGO Groupon Alert

Adam Boretz -- November 16th, 2012

This weekend, Groupon will be offering a great deal on audiobooks from AudioGO.

To take advantage of this offer, simply get the Groupon and then head over to AudioGO.

Once you’re there, browse from the company’s amazing selection of audiobooks — I’m partial to the P.G. Wodehouse titles myself, but AudioGO has a little something for everybody.

Once you’ve decided which audiobooks you want, add them to your basket and — when you’re ready to checkout — use the Redemption Code to get either $30 dollars worth of audiobooks when you spend $15, or $50 worth when you spend $25.
