Before we dive in, it’s important to note that Audible has a return policy that you should be familiar with. Make sure you’re eligible for a return by reviewing the terms and conditions.

Key Takeaways:

  • Returning an Audible audiobook is a simple process when you have a guide.
  • Make sure you’re eligible for a return by understanding Audible’s return policy.
  • Access your Audible account to initiate the return process.
  • Follow the steps involved in requesting a return.

Understanding Audible’s Return Policy

As an Audible member, it’s essential to familiarize yourself with the return policy to ensure you can return an audiobook if you’re unsatisfied with it.

According to the Audible return policy, you can return any audiobook within 365 days of its original purchase date. The return policy applies to all Audible titles regardless of how you’ve acquired them, whether you’ve bought them using cash or an Audible credit.

There is one catch, though. Once you’ve returned an audiobook, you cannot purchase it again using a credit you’ve previously used to buy it. However, there is no limit to how many audiobooks you can return through this policy.

Keep in mind that Audible’s return policy does not apply to promotional items, which includes any free audiobooks or ones received through an Audible trial subscription. Additionally, if you receive a refund for a title purchased using a promotional credit, Audible will not refund the promotional credit used to purchase it.

If you are returning audiobooks frequently, Audible may examine your account and revoke your membership or limit your ability to return audiobooks.

Now that you understand Audible’s return policy, let’s move on to the steps for returning an audiobook in the next section of this guide.

Completing the Return

After you’ve initiated the return process, you may need to take a few extra steps to complete the return and recover any credits used for the purchase.

If you used a credit to purchase the audiobook, the credit will be automatically returned to your account once the return is processed. If you purchased the audiobook with a credit card, the refund will be issued to the card used for the purchase. The refund may take up to ten business days to appear on your account.
