Audible - exchange your existing books for credits

I've recently discovered that at any point you can exchange books you already have for another credit. It works for books you bought with a credit, and it doesn't matter if you got the credit with a discount, or even if you got them through one of the free deals. It also doesn't matter if you have partially or completely finished listening to the book. You just follow the 'no fuss exchange' option from Member Benefits, and away you go. The book is instantly removed from your library, and you instantly get a new credit.

Whether you call this a deal or not I don't know, but it's surely something that will be removed or restricted at some point. I regretted 'buying' a few books when they did the 3 books free deal, and now I have the credits back. I hope this helps someone else...

Updated deal to make that a bit clearer. Thought I had exchanged a purchased book but makes sense I guess because you could buy a cheaper book then exchange for a more expensive one

Well this is it, as things stand I would say yes. They let me swap a book I had completely finished listening to for a normal credit. That's why I wonder if this will last.

I too signed up for the £1.99 a month deal and this is a very interesting carling8, thank you for posting.

I've been using the 24 book per year and have used this option twice for books I just couldn't get along with. It's very straight forward and there doesn't seem to be specific time limits i.e. I returned a book last week that I'd purchased in October, in this instance the book was on a promo so I paid by card rather than use a credit and card credit has been returned to me.

If you abuse this Amazon are well within their rights to cancel your account. You don't own these audiobooks (even if you paid), so having no account could mean you lose your right to play them at a later date.

Don't abuse it

thanks op ,credit return was instant

As long as Amazon continue abusing the tax system and their employees I'm happy to keep abusing them. I have about 6 Amazon accounts (I make a new one every Xmas so I get 30 days Prime, usually extended by another 30 days when they fail to deliver something on time).

Happy to see others abusing Amazon too.

My warning for people to not abuse it was so that they don't find themselves losing all of their audiobooks (and potentially kindle books and mp3s too). When you buy digital content from Amazon you don't own the item, you are paying for a licence to access the content - which Amazon can potentially take away at any moment if you abuse them.

I couldn't care less about Amazon's profits.

It is not Amazon who are at fault - Amazon fully comply with tax laws - if you want to blame someone blame the politicians who wrote the law, or, in this case, gave away their power over this aspect of tax law to the EU, which is why Amazon is domiciled in Luxembourg for tax purposes. Oh, and there is the small matter of Amazon being a growing company that invests in growth rather than making profits - but don't let reality get in the way of your self-righteousness.

As for this 'deal', it's useful for books that you can't abide, but abusing it will likely get you banned from Amazon - they're not very keen on being deliberately defrauded.

This is not a deal. It's a generous returns/customer satisfaction policy. Use it when you were genuinely disappointed with a book.

The problem with posting this on here as a deal is that scroungers will sign up for a free trial, and then continuously return their single book for new ones.
