Get your e-book credit from Amazon

by Rachel Baker on March 25, 2014

For Amazon.com customers, today is a good day! You probably have a partial credit for e-books you bought on Amazon.

What does this mean? Well, first, figure out which junk email you used to get notifications from Amazon; and then check the inbox and/or the junk box to see if you’ve gotten a credit.

OR…you can ignore the email and look right at your account for a credit. When you order your next books, the credit will automatically be applied to the order.

Consumers nationwide who bought e-books through Amazon and other online retailers will get credited a total of $166 million stemming from price-fixing settlements with five publishers, according to the New York State attorney general.
“Illegal actions by these publishers forced consumers in New York and across the nation to pay artificially inflated prices for e-books,” said Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, in a statement.

Schneiderman said the settlements being paid by the publishers apply to consumers in 33 states, with $11.5 million going to customers in New York.

Schneiderman said the settlement is with Simon & Schuster Inc. of CBS (CBS, Fortune 500), HarperCollins Publishers LLC of News Corp. (NWS), Hachette Book Group, Macmillan and Penguin Group of Pearson (PSO).
