Tip 3: Return/Exchange books after downloading them

Audible allows members to return or exchange books if they find the book is not that readable within 365 days of the original purchase. Audible will limit the number of exchanges if members return too many books. But there’s no exact number of how many books you can exchange, if Audible decides you’re going too far, then they’ll stop you. But you can still use the trick to get the books you have exchanged or returned as well as the credits back, here’s how.

Step 1: Download ViWizard Audible Converter

Before you exchange your audiobook and get the credit back, you'll have to download the book to your device first. You can download it on Audible, but once you exchange or return the book, the downloaded file will get deleted. Then you might say " What if I put it elsewhere so that Audible can't find them." Of course you can, but the file is protected, which mean you can never play it again without Audible.

But with the ViWizard Audible AA/AAX Converter, you can use it to remove the copyright protection first and then convert Audible books to MP3 or other formats. After that you'll be able to play them anywhere you want.
