You heard me right! Yesterday morning when I woke up and checked their website tor sales I saw that I had $117 in gift card credit! I refreshed the page like 3 times to make sure my eyes were not playing tricks on me and once I realized it wasn’t a mistake I did some research.
According to an email and the website the credit was fund disbursement from Apple for past ebook purchases.
“In November 2014, a federal court approved a Settlement of antitrust lawsuits brought against Apple, Inc. (“Apple”) by State Attorneys General and Class Plaintiffs about the price of electronic books (“eBooks”). Those settlements resulted in credits for qualifying Kindle books purchased between April 1, 2010 and May 21, 2012. These credits are funded by Apple.
Eligible customers do not need to do anything to receive these credits. If you are eligible, we have already calculated your credit for you and added it to your Amazon account. As long as you have credit remaining we will automatically apply it to your purchase of qualifying items through Amazon.com, an Amazon device or an Amazon app. The credit applied to your purchase will appear in your order summary as a gift card during checkout and in your account history. Eligible customers should have received a notification email from Amazon on June 21, 2016.”
If you made ebook purchases on the website during the time period just follow this link or check your email to see how much you have waiting for you!
