I only got $56. I want to know how they figured this out because I was figuring closer to $200.
I had no idea how to work it out and got $48 so very happy

I have a feeling that legal fees have taken a large chunk out of the funds available for disbursement to customers - before the final amount gets allotted (by whatever calculation) to actual purchasers of agency priced ebooks.

I only got $5.11 from Amazon but I think I probably bought most ebooks from B&N during that time period. I'll have to see what I get from them.

I just got $13.87 from Amazon. I expect a bundle more from B&N, since most of my purchases from that period were for my nook, but I haven't heard from B&N yet.

I bought, well my Mother and I bought, over 400 books during that time period. I have not gone through to figure out which publisher was responsible for each book but I know that neither one of us cared about the Publisher and bought what we wanted to read. So either most of the authors we read were not sold by the major publishers or something is way off. Personally, I would like a list of the books that were included and an explination of why it ended up being what it was. They list a specific pay out per book, at the lowest level, $1 a book, I should have been well over $58

I got a tiny settlement credit from Amazon this morning. I rarely bought books from the publishers involved. My bigger settlement should come through Sony, so I suspect I'll get screwed with that.

eBooks Antitrust Settlement Information

Dear [edited],

Good news! You are entitled to a credit of $8.28 for some of your past Kindle book purchases. The credit results from legal settlements reached with publishers Hachette, HarperCollins, Simon & Schuster, Macmillan, and Penguin in antitrust lawsuits filed by State Attorneys General and Class Plaintiffs about the price of eBooks.

You don't have to do anything to claim your credit, we have already added your credit to your Amazon account. We will automatically apply your available credit to your next purchase of a Kindle book or print book sold by Amazon.com, regardless of publisher. The credit applied to your purchase will appear in your order summary. If your account does not reflect this credit, please contact Amazon's customer service.

For more information about the settlements, please visit www.amazon.com/ebooksettlements

Your credit is valid for one year and will expire after 03/31/2015. If you have not used your credit, we will send you another email 90 days before it expires to remind you that it is still available.

Thanks for being a Kindle customer.

The Amazon Kindle Team

I got the same amount. I was surprised it was so little considering the publishers' books I had bought through them.
