How to get your Amazon credit from Apple's ebook price-fixing settlement

It's raining Amazon credit....for some at least.

If you are one of those lucky few that are expecting to receive credit from Kindle purchases as a result of Apple's eBook antitrust settlement case, there is convenient process to check the status via Amazon!

Amazon has announced to its Kindle users they can receive settlement payment through the Kindle site. People who purchased ebooks between April 1, 2010, and May 2012, will receive credits ($6.93 for every purchase that was a New York Times bestseller and $1.57 for every other ebook) from ebook sellers or will get a check if they opted out of receiving credits, according to Hagens Berman Shapiro, a class action lawsuit involved in the lawsuit against Apple.

In November 2014, a federal court approved a Settlement of antitrust lawsuits brought against Apple, Inc. (“Apple”) by State Attorneys General and Class Plaintiffs about the price of electronic books (“eBooks”). Those settlements resulted in credits for qualifying Kindle books purchased between April 1, 2010 and May 21, 2012. These credits are funded by Apple.

Eligible customers do not need to do anything to receive these credits. If you are eligible, we have already calculated your credit for you and added it to your Amazon account. As long as you have credit remaining we will automatically apply it to your purchase of qualifying items through, an Amazon device or an Amazon app.
