How to Prevent Future Charges from Audible

How To Stop Future Subscription Charges

We’ve all been there – you cancel a subscription, and later on, you find out they’ve been charging your account the whole time. 

Unfortunately, this is all too common when it comes to subscription services.

To prevent future billing with Audible, change your payment method to a free Privacy virtual card that you control, like an ON and OFF switch.

All subscription services charge you a month in advance, and when you don’t pay, they cancel your subscription.

You don’t need to cancel or rely on them to stop billing you when you turn your Privacy card off for that specific subscription.

Here’s how to get started in 3 minutes or less with Privacy:

  1. Get a FREE account with Privacy and connect your bank account.
  2. Create a new virtual card for each subscription and set a monthly limit.
  3. You now have complete control over your subscriptions with peace of mind.

To avoid being charged with free trials, you can make your virtual card expire after the trial is over.

You can also set charge limits to avoid surprise charges or increased rates without your knowledge.

We recommend you use Privacy for all online transactions for safety and security by not exposing your actual card information online.

How to Get a Refund After Canceling Your Membership to Audible

After you cancel with one of the methods above, you can email or call with your account details asking for a refund of unused months.

If you previously tried to cancel your membership and had trouble canceling, you can use the template below to request a refund by email or phone.

“I had trouble canceling my membership and thought I had already canceled my subscription. I have been billed for months that I did not use the service. I’m requesting a refund for [MONTH – MONTH] of the service, please.”

The key is to keep the email or call short and sweet and be honest.
