How To Delete Your Online Accounts

PC Mag has assembled a list of instructions on how to wipe your account from a long list of websites, including Classmates.com (you’ll have to call), Windows Live ID (it’s complicated), and Friendster (ha ha ha). In many cases, canceling is as straightforward as clicking a link and authorizing the cancellation, but it’s nice to see all the phone numbers and tips collected in one spot.

Audible Issues $5 Credit To Inconvenienced Customers

Audible Issues $5 Credit To Inconvenienced Customers

Audible will issue a $5 credit to anyone inconvenienced as the podcast and audiobook retailer moves their New Jersey offices. The only caveat: you must explicitly request a credit. Jayson discovered the compensation policy, which will be in effect “for a couple of weeks,” when he complained after his episode of Car Talk failed to download.

When I told the customer service rep that I felt I deserved some sort of credit for the inconvenience, she replied that Audible had decided to give $5 credits to anyone who called and explicitly asked for a credit due to this problem.

We are not surprised, given Audible’s track record of excellent customer service. If you are an Audible subscriber and your podcast fails to download, call and ask for a credit. Audible customer service can be reached at (888) 283-5051.
