Heads up, Kindle users

So, if you’ve been buying Kindle books at Amazon over the last few years, today may be a fun day for you: Apple just settled an antitrust lawsuit via refunds to Amazon customers who bought relevant Kindle titles.

How do you know if you got some money? Go check your Amazon gift card balance to see if you’ve got credit. If you’re a big Kindle purchaser, chances are excellent you’ve now got money to spend (and it needn’t be on books).



  1. I got like ten bucks! woo!

  2. They sent me an email and I have $74.55. I’m not what that says about my buying habits, but WOO HOO!

  3. $4.71 here. Looking hard at those sugar-free Gummi Bears.

  4. Yay! Thanks for the heads up – I got a big payout (not near what we spend on books, but will make treating myself to more, even lovelier!)

  5. $50. I saw the gift card info on my account before I got the email and was very confused. Now I’m very happy!

  6. $24.85. I also saw the credit before I received the email, so I was wondering. Anyway, I have a policy of using gift cards to replace hardcopies I have already purchased (and like to reread) with Kindle copies, then donate the hardcopies to the library. Another four books off the shelf! Our offspring will thank us when they have to clear out the house. 🙂

  7. Same for nook purchases! The miracle gift card balance! Except, of course we are getting this money because the major sellers colluded on ebook prices 🙁

  8. I was wondering how that got in there!
