Apple settlement reimburses Kindle users

woman reading kindleIf you own a Kindle or buy e-books with an Apple account, you might be slightly richer today.

Apple has settled a $400 million class-action lawsuit, and consumers are receiving credits for purchases made between April 2010 and May 2012.

Yesterday my wife got an email saying she's received a $199.07 credit on her Amazon.com account for being overcharged on Kindle books. She has one year to take advantage of the credit.

Now, my wife reads a lot, so most people likely won't enjoy a credit that large. But a Good Housekeeping article says every e-book purchased that was a New York Times bestseller entitles consumers to a $6.93 credit.

If you have an Amazon.com account, go here to read about the Apple settlement.
