How Much Does an Epic Subscription Cost?

Epic offers readers of all ages unlimited access to more than 40,000 books, videos, and audiobooks. Since 2013, the award-winning subscription service has been providing access to reading content for millions of families and classrooms each year.

An annual payment of $79.99 provides customers with a 33% savings, equivalent to $6.67 per month. For those that choose to pay monthly, the subscription fee is $9.99 each month.

Subscribing to Epic may not be complicated but figuring out is another matter.

Understanding the Conditions of an Epic Subscription

According to the Epic Terms of Service, there are several parameters customers should be aware of regarding the subscription service:

  1. Your account is automatically charged on the predetermined billing date and is valid until the next subscription period begins.
  2. The subscription is no longer valid if you or the company terminates the agreement.
  3. You must cancel before the subscription renews to avoid charges for another subscription fee.
  4. Epic can temporarily suspend or terminate any account for non-payment. You will still be obligated to pay the outstanding amount due, plus any applicable collection fees.

Epic! does not issue partial refunds for any unused time, regardless of whether you have a monthly or annual subscription plan.

If I Cancel Epic Subscription, Will It End Immediately?

An Epic subscription remains active for the duration of the paid billing cycle. So, if you have a monthly plan and cancel it in the middle of the month, you will still have access to reading materials until the end of the month.

Annual subscribers have prepaid access for an entire 12 month period, regardless of whether they cancel during that time.

After the subscription ends, you will still have access to the complimentary version of Epic Basic.You can contact to address any questions or concerns you may have.
