Ebook Customers to Get Refunds

Oct 16, 2012

If you've been buying your ebooks at Amazon or Apple, you may have some credits coming your way. According to CNN Money, Kindle users who bought ebooks between April 1, 2010 and May 21, 2012 will receive credits ranging from $0.30 to $1.32 per book. Apple did not specify an amount.

This announcement comes on the heels of a settlement between the DOJ and three publishers named in a suit against Apple and a total of five publishers. In the settlement, the publishers agreed to provide $69 million for a fund to pay credits to ebooks customers who had been overcharged.
