The LitCharts A+ Subscription FAQ

If you have additional questions not covered below, please contact us directly and we'd be happy to help.

What are the benefits of a LitCharts A+ subscription?

LitCharts A+ subscribers gain access to the following exclusive content:

  1. Instant downloads of all 415 LitCharts literature guide PDFs.
  2. Instant downloads of all 415 LitCharts Teacher Editions.
  3. Instant downloads of all 14 LitCharts Shakespeare translations.
  4. Instant access to all Quotes Explanations and citation info, including page numbers.

We’ll also be adding lots of additional new helpful features and content over the coming months that will be available exclusively to subscribers.

What do we mean by “instant downloads”?

Logged-in subscribers can go to any LitCharts literature guide and download the PDF of the guide directly to their computer or mobile device. No waiting for emails or any other frustrating delays.

Are there any limits on the number of PDFs subscribers can download?

No. You can sign up and download however many PDFs you need, whenever you need them.

How much does a subscription cost?

We offer two subscription options: monthly and annual. The monthly subscription option costs $9.95 per month. The annual subscription costs $59.40 per year, a savings of about 50% off the monthly rate. All prices are in U.S. dollars and are billed at the time of purchase.

If I don't live in the USA, can I still sign up?

Yes. If your local currency is not U.S. dollars, your credit card company will handle the conversion automatically at the time of purchase

Does the subscription renew automatically?

Yes, at the end of your current monthly or annual subscription term.

Can I cancel anytime?

Yes. If you cancel, we won't renew your account or charge you again at the end of your subscription period. We do not offer refunds, however.

If I cancel, will I lose access immediately?

No. If you cancel, your account will remain open and accessible until the date on which your current subscription term ends.

Can I restart my subscription if it's lapsed?

Yes. At any time after you cancel and your subscription period lapses, you can restart your subscription by logging in with your old username or email address and password (if you've forgotten your password, we can email you a reminder). When you do, you'll land on our renew page where we'll ask you to choose the subscription plan you'd like and to re-input your payment info.

How do I cancel my subscription?

To cancel, please follow these steps:

  1. Log in to your LitCharts account.
  2. Go to your Settings page by clicking on the dropdown menu in the top-right corner of any page.
  3. Click "cancel your subscription" at the bottom of the Settings form.
  4. Click to confirm that you want to cancel in the popup that appears.

Do you offer discounts for teacher groups and schools?

Yes! Please see our Teachers and Schools subscription page for more info.

Are the LitCharts website and mobile apps still free?

Yes! All of our website content (except LitCharts A+ exclusive content, such as our literature guide PDFs, Quotes Explanations, and Teacher Editions) and our mobile apps remain 100% free.
