$235 in credit - I think I must read a lot!  8)  I'd forgotten about this lawsuit completely, so it was a nice surprise today!

I think I have like 5 or 6 ticket things from ticketmaster, and an equivalent number of "2.25 discount codes".  Not sure if those will ever get used.  The amazon credit definitely will be used though!

I just checked my Amazon account - I bought my first book in 2013.  Darn, no settlement credit/check for me.

Oh, well - I already have quite a few books that I got free (mostly out of copyright from Project Gutenberg but also some Baen Free Library books) that I haven't gotten around to reading all of them yet.

Too many other things to do - laundry, house cleaning, shopping, sewing, not much knitting lately (wrists), and a wide assortment of other activities...including running to the library for "real" books that I have to turn around and return later - not all the books that I want to read have a digital version!

Weird. I don't have anything and I've had a kindle since 2012 and have bought a ton of books. :(

It may depend on when in 2012 you got your Kindle; the credits were for books bought between 2010 and I think May 2012; so anything after that won't qualify. :(

siamesecat2965, I think I love you. I must have deleted my notice email without, well, noticing. I had no idea this was happening and it turns out I have $34.17 to play with!

Barnes and Noble emailed me last night to expect it in a couple days.  Oddly I already got one settlement from them several years ago, must have been a different lawsuit.  I got about $40 that time.

So I have 8 weeks off from classes to read 14 books in two series that interrelate.

I am slightly annoyed that instead of two new books in the later series, there is only one, the second one is released in January 2017.

Great! Glad it worked out for you! I almost deleted my email, but figured since Amazon really doesn't spam me all that often, it might be something important. and it was!

Yup, there was a separate one, if I recall, where Amazon, B&N etc. settled. Apple decided to hold out and not settle, but when the Supreme Ct. declined to hear their case, well, they had no choice. And i think Apple's settlement was bigger. I think that's what happened.

Yeah, I got the notification from Apple and B&N.  I don't remember seeing how much I was due though.  Did I miss it.

I have a feeling it's going to be over $200...I buy a lot of books.

I placed an order with Amazon for another item and at checkout was told I had a credit. I couldn't figure out what is was for, but I took it. Then I read my emails and a notice was there. No work or thought on my part.

Apple notified me of 'a credit' but not how much.  Amazon is doing great public relations with how user friendly they are making this.

Today I got my credit at Barnes & Noble, for 198.00.  They sent me an email.  I have the amount in my gift card account on the website. Yipee!!

Yep I got my credit. Combined that with deals from bookbub (I think I found that site from an e-hell user, or maybe a FB user) and it's only been 5 days but I already have 10 free books downloaded! Everyone check out bookbub, it's great for heavy e-book users. They point out all the free or heavily discounted books on e-book platforms daily. I've scored so much. And the 1 or 2 dollar books on sale have been free because of my Apple credit.
