Borrow for Free - Prime Members? It charged me! I have Kindle for PC and Prime. Why is it charging me for this book? I need this edition to tie me over in class before I get my hard copy...that is why I got this FREE RENTAL. Why am I being charged?!
You have to download it directly from your device. You cannot do it on a computer. Go to the kindle store through your device and when you go to an eligible book there should be 2 buttons; a buy now and a borrow button. Click on the borrow button and you won't be charged. Read the Prime membership "learn more" pages. They even have pictures to guide you through it.
I am a new Kindle owner and new prime member. The link that should be available on my kindle directing me to the lending library is not coming up. I tried several times to no avail! My card has been charged but I am still not able to "borrow" any books, it is still not identifying me as a prime member on the kindle.
I have the same complaint. Cannot figure out how to access the free prime lending library. Suggest if this is not going to work, Amazon should take all reference to this off the Kindle, it's false advertising. This could be a nice referral to the Better Business Bureau. Overall, Amazon does a great job, and I am really enjoying the Kindle capability. However, it's not nice to lie to your customers. Please, fix. Thank you.
As others have said you have to do it through your Kindle device. Then click on the Kindle store button, once on that page click 'all categories', a drop down menu opens with the Kindle lending library at the bottom. There is no other way to access a list. I have also heard if you have the free 1 month of Prime, you are unable to borrow a book, but I'm not positive about that.
The other thing is, if you have already borrowed a book and not yet returned it, you can't get another book until the other book is returned.
it was a problem for me too - but someone else posted the way to do it, and it worked. You do need to "borrow" it directly from your kindle device, where it does download directly to your kindle. Go to the kindle store on your kindle. Warning: it does seem to take time for the kindle to progress through the steps....
