I canceled my Audible yesterday, been a member since 2004 and when you got an actual device with your subscription.

Kind of sad they don't have a "dormant" mode or something. I can reactivate at any time so it's the same thing really....just emotionally different.

I simply have too many audible books I haven't yet listened too.

Audible’s site clearly tells you that credits expire when you cancel your plan.

https://www.audible.co.uk/legal/cond...on-h_f6_cou#p4

“Audible Plan Terms”, Section 7, “Cancellation of Audible Plans”:
Interesting that they don't word it like "before you cancel, be sure to buy books with your existing credits because the credits expire when you close your account"

Is that even necessary any more? You keep access to all your library even after you cancel. What's the $10 per year for?

BTW, I would pay the $10 per year to keep my account....just because it feels sad now that I've canceled after 15 years of being a member. And I only canceled to stopped having to buy new books when I've so many I have yet to listen to.

I'm not sure I understand the question. There's nothing special about an Audible book. It's just a file. You back it up in the same way you'd back up any other file.

I guess I'm coming from the perspective on one who uses his iPhone for Audible. I didn't think about using the website on my computer.

Well, I do get the member's discount, plus I do buy new audiobooks on a regular basis.

If you download the books to your PC, you can then back them up.

I take it that the 30% discount pays for itself if you buy only one book a year?

I haven't really thought about it. Looking at the price of one audiobook verses the member price, yea it pays for itself if I buy 1 book a year, and I tend to buy a lot more than that. I've had an audible account since 2005, which is why I have the grandfathered account, though I wouldn't be shocked if at some point, they try to force me to switch over to a monthly account. Of course, if they do that, it would a case of maybe killing the golden goose, given how many audiobooks I've bought from them.

They have a hiatus program, which is for a maximum of three months, every 12 months.

Yep. 3 months came and went and wasn’t nearly enough time

I use to pay for an account for my nephew and niece. I was clearly told that I would lose any credits when I canceled the account. Since it still had 12 credits (after the first couple of years, they stopped using it, which was the reason for canceling), I bought 12 books, then canceled.
