How to Get Free Audible Credit

Posted by on .

If you are an Audible user, you must be very familiar with the Audible credit. Briefly speaking, 1 Audible credit = 1 Audible book. As long as we have an Audible credit, we can use it to exchange any title in the Audible store, regardless of the original price. Until now Audible is offering us the best audiobook service and the largest library of audiobooks, but many of us would wonder if we can save a little. Here this post will show you how you can legally save money on audiobooks by getting the free Audible credits. Let's see together!

3. Return Unwanted Audiobooks for Free Credits

Audible's return policy allows you to return any books you don't like and get the credit back within 365 days of the original purchase as long as you are an active member. Even if you have listened to it in full, you can return the book for a credit which you can then use right away to buy another audiobook.


1. Although Audible hasn't made an announcement about how many books you can return, it's better not to abuse this feature. Audible may limit the number of exchanges if you return too many books.

2. You get refunded the type of payment used. That is to say, if you use your credit card for a purchase, you'll get your cash refunded. Whereas if you use an Audible credit, you'll get credit back in your account which can be used again for another book.

3. Only active members can make the returns. Customers who cancel or fail to maintain their membership are not eligible to return any books.

How to return unwanted Audible books for free credits?

It's rather simple to return an Audible book. Just go to audible.com and sign in with your Amazon account. On the Purchase History section, you will see all your titles. If your books can be returned, there will be a "return" word next to the book title. Click return, then you will receive an audible credit or refund.

b/I'm one of those scientists, who as a teenager, thought making rockets with Potassium Chlorate was a good idea. It's NOT. As another Do-It-Yourself (DIY) scientist commented "Using Potassium Chlorate as an oxidizer in your rockets means you are making pipe bombs with fins...."
I spent a week in the hospital after proving this little-heeded truism!

So now, being blind in one eye and an old man with poor vision, Audible's "Books-On-Tape" concept provides me with an enjoyable way to keep learning without straining my eyes. I like reading, but my vision does NOT like the strain, so "Books-On-Tape" it has to be!

Yes, Audible.com will exchange titles with no hassles.
