Amazon Apple Book Settlement

  • Recipients can sign in to check credit balance online
  • Sign in can be completed with existing Amazon credentials

When a settlement as large as the one resulting from the antitrust lawsuits brought against Apple about the price of electronic eBooks comes to fruition there is sure to be a massive amount of people who come to benefit.  Some of those who are eligible will receive their benefit in the form of a credit automatically added to their Amazon account.  This juicy account credit can be used to purchase qualifying items through the Amazon website, an Amazon application, or an Amazon device.  Recipients that have done some purchasing and would like to take a peek at their account credit balance can do so by signing in through the Amazon Apple Book Settlement page with their existing account credentials.

A Few More Things Before the Spending Begins….

  • The credit cannot be put on the back burner for too long as it will expire on June 24th, 2017 at 11:59 AM Pacific Daylight Time
  • Those who are wondering if they are even eligible for the credit should check their email as notice should have been sent from Amazon on June 21st, 2016
  • When the account credit is applied to a purchase it will show up in the order summary at check out as a gift card and in the account history
  • To complete the sign in and verify an account credit balance recipients must look for the button posted at the Amazon Apple Book Settlement page

To be eligible for the account credit customers must have had a United States billing address and must have purchased a Kindle book published by Hachette, HarperCollins, Simon & Schuster, Penguin, or Macmillan between April 1st, 2010 and May 21st, 2012.  Those who returned the book or received a refund of their money do not qualify for the settlement credit. Customers who are down right certain (or even not so certain) they made a qualifying purchase but did not receive a notification email should reach out to Amazon Customer Service.
