If you’ve ever downloaded an e-book from Amazon, you might be sitting on some free money to spend at America’s favorite e-retailer. A lawsuit left millions of Amazon members with a credit balance on their accounts. Wanna find out how much you might have available to spend? Of course you do.
Last year Apple settled a class-action lawsuit that resulted in millions of shoppers who purchased e-books in the past receiving credits on their Amazon and Barnes & Noble accounts. The only catch is, you must spend that money by this Saturday. The credits expire on June 24, 2017 at midnight Pacific time, so if you haven’t spent yours already, it’s time to do some shopping.
How can you tell if you have a credit? After you’ve logged into your account go to this Amazon page. You’ll find listed your “Total Credit” and beneath that “Unused Credit.” Once you’ve selected something in your shopping cart and are ready to check out, you can apply the credit to the purchase. If you think you might have purchased e-books from Barnes & Noble between 2010 and 2012, then check this page for information regarding their credits as well.
So now the only question left is what to buy? That inflatable pool you’ve been eyeing, or maybe some more books for summer reading? Or you can just splurge and buy yourself a new outfit.
