You may have money waiting in your Amazon account

Posted: Updated:
KHQ.com -

If you bought ebooks from Amazon.com between 2010 and 2012, you might want to check your account. Starting on Tuesday, Amazon began issuing gift cards to customers as a result of a class action lawsuit settlement.

"You don't have to do anything to claim your credit, we have already added it to your Amazon account. We will automatically apply your available credit to your purchase of qualifying items through Amazon, an Amazon device or an Amazon app. The credit applied to your purchase will appear as a gift card in your order summary and in your account history," reads the email sent to customers beginning Tuesday.

That cash is coming from Apple as part of an antitrust lawsuit settled earlier in 2016. In total, Apple will have to pay $400 million to ebook customers.

If you're a Kindle fiend, the settlement cash could add up. 

And unlike Ticketmaster, who also recently started paying customers due to a lawsuit, but only allowed vouchers to be applied to certain concerts across the country (None of which are in Washington state), Amazon refunds appear in your account and can be used for any ebooks on the site. For more information settlement, click here: https://www.amazon.com/Kindle-eBooks/b?ie=UTF8&node=14741166011&ref_=pe_undef

Happy reading.
