Your next ebook purchase could be on Apple, thanks to a lawsuit settlement in March. About three years ago, the US Justice Department found Apple guilty of illegally fixing ebook prices with book publishers, Harper Collins, Penguin, Simon & Schuster, Hachette and Macmillan, reports Forbes. The company's appeal earlier this year was rejected, which means customers are finally getting paid out.
It's easy to find out if you're part of the settlement deal, thanks to Amazon's help page. If you bought ebooks by any of the five named publishers, between April 1, 2010 to May 21, 2012 and from retailers including Amazon, Apple, Barnes & Noble, and Kobo, you'll receive credit back. The credits are as follow: $6.93 for every New York Times best-selling ebook and $1.57 for all other ebooks — both good until June 24, 2017. Check your email to see if you have any available credit in your Amazon account ASAP to use towards other ebooks, or credit from any other retailers.
