    Take that Ticketmaster

    So I made a purchase on Amazon today, and somehow had a $50 gift card balance, I didn't buy a gift card, nor was I given, one, so upon further research

    Apple Begins Paying Out on Ebook Settlement, Check Your Amazon Account For Credits

    If you purchased a Kindle book from Hachette, HarperCollins, Simon & Schuster, Penguin, or Macmillan between 4/1/10 and 5/21/12, you should have some free money sitting in your Amazon account right now.

    The settlement comes from a 2012 case where the Department of Justice accused Apple and five major publishers of conspiring to raise the price of ebooks. So, if you purchased a book from one of those publishers for your Amazon Kindle, you’re now eligible for credit on Amazon to make up for it. How much you get depends on how many books you bought and from what publishers.

    Any device that Amazon sells is only a means for Amazon to harvest more information about you,
    [​IMG] they should give you this once you have agreed to surrender your privacy to them.
