  • Just received mail that says I have 12 credits to redeem. I can’t seem to figure out how to do so, or why I have these credits (canceled my subscription about two years ago)
    Login to, check your account history. You either had 12 credits when you cancelled or you didn't cancel. Once you figure out what your status is and if you want to try to get Amazon to cancel and remove credits the last 2 years since you didn't use them, or if you want to use them - that's done on the site too. Find a title, click "buy now" and if you have credits it will default to use credits to pay... - Source: Reddit / 3 days ago

  • No hassle way to cancel subscription?
    Yeah, managing your account through is super easy and I've never had a problem doing so in the 20+ years (off and on) that I've been a customer. I've seen a ton of complaints with people trying to manage their accounts through Apple or Google though just because of the extra layer and the chance something will go wrong and each party will blame the other. - Source: Reddit / 23 days ago
  • No hassle way to cancel subscription?
    I've never seen any horror stories about trying to cancel on At least, as long as you've used it "normally".

    I just looked at the credit card statement for the card I used and have been charged $10 for the free membership trial I signed up with. I live in New Zealand but I used not (the Australian/NZ version), and the only way to contact their help service seems to be via phone. - Source: Reddit / about 2 months ago
  • Is this actually how Audible rewards work or are they just making it up as they go along?
    Just realized I don't see the cash or coupon balance in the app, only the balance of credits I have left. Only when I go to on my laptop did I notice I have $18 in credits. I think this discrepancy -- between the app and the web and the app not supporting cash purchases -- is the cause of so much of this confusion arrgghhh. - Source: Reddit / 2 months ago
