With the ability to get free samples (my post about that is here), it is unlikely that you will be saddled with a book that you just can’t bear to read.
BUT .. it is possible with the one-click buying option, that you just might accidentally buy a book that you didn’t plan to buy. The buying box is directly above the sample box, and if you’re not paying attention………
Amazon allows you to return your eBook within 7 days of purchase.
(Personally, I think this is incredibly generous. An unscrupulous e-reader person could take advantage of that wide window of time. If I was the person in charge of making the decision, I probably would have made a 3 day limit. But happily for Amazon’s consumers, I am in no way affiliated and so their liberal policy stands at 7 days.)
Here is how to return your eBook:
Navigate to Amazon’s “Manage My Kindle” page.
Hover your cursor over the “Actions” button.
A menu will drop down. If it is within 7 days since you bought the book, the option “Return for Refund” will be part of this menu. (After 7 days, that option will no longer appear.)
Select “Return for Refund” and follow the prompts. If you are using a Kindle app, the same process applies.
