I didn't even know I was getting a credit and I just got the email saying they had added it to my account. Pleasant surprise.

I'm confused; I haven't been paying attention. If I got money in the previous settlement, should I automatically get money now?

Can it be used for non kindle purchases like physical books?

It's a gift card amount - it can be used for anything on Amazon.

Yes, the Amazon credit comes in the form of an Amazon Gift Card and can be used to purchase any item!

I've already spent mine.

My credit from Amazon says:

Quote:
Apple, Inc. (Apple) funded this credit to settle antitrust lawsuits brought by State Attorneys General and Class Plaintiffs about the price of electronic books (eBooks). As a result of this Settlement, qualifying eBook purchases from any retailer are eligible for a credit.
How odd that Apple had to credit me for books I purchased from Amazon. I'm sure they can afford it.

It was for any books bought from the major publishers during the time period they were found to be colluding amongst themselves and with Apple to raise prices. It was the time that Agency Pricing was invoked by 5 of the 6 publishers at Apple's insistence.

I am guessing you did not buy a lot of books from the major publishers based on your refund.

Yes. Your first settlement was from the Publishers who settled out of court. Apple fought the case and lost. Then it lost the appeal. So this is the money that Apple owes folks. It is significantly higher then the other payout because Apple fought the case.

Wow. I got nothing in the previous settlements, and I got $40 from Apple. I know I never bought an Agency book-freebies and sale books only. Oh well, I won't look a gift horse in the mouth.

The earlier settlement I got was way over $100, closer to $200 as I recall. But I never received a penny of it. Not sure what happened with it. At least Apple paid, though they fought it tooth and nail.
