Part 1. How Can I Return a Book on Audible?

Audible boasts a generous return policy, and as part of the Audible Premium Plus membership benefits, users receive free credits that can be used to purchase audiobooks. As long as your membership is active, you're allowed to explore new narrations or audiobooks labeled with "1 CREDIT," and take further chances without losing a credit or return titles purchased in error.

To make the most of Audible's return policy, ensure your Audible Premium Plus membership is in good standing. Here are the key points to consider:

  • Audible Account: Keep it awake! Make sure your Audible Plus or Premium Plus account is not napping - it needs to be active.
  • Timeframe: You've got time - 365 days, to be exact. Audible gives you a whole year to decide if an audiobook is a keeper or not. That's like having your own audiobook testing period.

Now, let's address some important considerations regarding the frequency and limitations of returns on Audible.

Q1:How often can I return titles on Audible?

Q4:What kinds of return will I receive on Audible?

A4:Audible ensures fairness in its refund process by aligning the reimbursement method with the original payment used for the purchase. This means:
