Joehunt, I went to the iTunes store and logged in there, then clicked on "Redeem" under Quick Links. Then I copied & pasted the activation code from the letter. Worked fine. I got an entire 73 cents! ;-D

Got $20.44 from Amazon, and I've already discovered that it's available only for the purchase of Kindle books. Fine with me!

I got $0.73 as well. I didn't think I bought any from Amazon during that timeframe. I probably only bought 2 or 3 elsewhere.

I can't say for sure here, but that is generally not how class action settlements work. Attorney fees are added on, not deducted from consumer recovery.

I got $42.38, which is more than I expected.

You know, that was the first book I thought about! (Though I already have the Audible book on pre-order. Now I may cancel that pre-order and buy it as a Whisper-Sync book. )

It works on pbooks as well. I discovered my credit early this morning when I was checking out a purchase that included a pbook. Easy come, easy go.

I got $30.18 which is pretty good considering that I still didn't buy books that cost more than $10 during the whole fiasco.

I've already spent $5.99 of it.

No email here... I buy a lot of ebooks, I'd think I'd have managed to buy something that would qualify... Where does the credit appear in the Amazon account?

We're tied. $0.73 is what I got from Amazon.

What little I was buying then was through B&N, and a little bit through Kobo and Sony. Although, I was so bitter about the agency mess that I purchased very little from the Big 5.

Still do. Went from spending $400+ yearly on eBooks to less than $50 a year. I have access to 3 Overdrive libraries, so I donate to all 3 instead. I get books I want to read, and I get a tax writeoff.

My emails say $29.20 from Amazon and $52.56 from B&N. I'm very pleased, most especially because I've never paid full price or more than $5 for one of these books. I feel like I came out ahead!

Have not checked to see if the credits are actually there yet. Will do so this afternoon, as it is time for lunch now!
