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 to the number of PDFs subscribers can download?

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

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. We have subscribers from all over the world.

Does the subscription renew automatically?

Yes, at the end of your current monthly or annual subscription term. You can stop automatic renewal at anytime before your next renewal date by canceling your account.

Can I cancel anytime?

You can cancel anytime up to 24 hours before your next renewal date. If you cancel, we won't renew your account or charge you again at the end of your subscription period.

Can I get a refund?

We're sorry but we do not offer refunds.

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.

Which payment methods do you accept?

We accept all major credit cards (Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover), PayPal, and Apple Pay. We're sorry but we do not accept purchase orders or checks.

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.

Please note that if you paid via PayPal, you need to cancel your subscription at PayPal. To do so, please log in to PayPal and follow these instructions.

I'm a subscriber but I can't log in. What should I do?

This problem usually results from one of two causes:

  • Entering the incorrect password.
  • Signing up with a typo in your email address.

To resolve this problem, first try resetting your password. If you do not receive the password reset email, you probably signed up with a typo in your email address or our emails are ending up in your spam folder. Please check your spam folder to confirm. If you still can't login for any other reason, please contact us directly and let us know the email address associated with your LitCharts account. We will help restore your access to your account asap.

Are the LitCharts website and mobile apps still free?

Most of our website content and our mobile apps remain freely accessible to all users. LitCharts A+ exclusive content, such as our Literature Guide PDFs, Quotes Explanations, and Teacher Editions, is accessible to paid subscribers only.

If you have any other questions, please contact us. And if you choose to subscribe, thank you! We really appreciate your support.
