If you purchased e-books from Amazon or other vendors in the past few years, you may see a little extra money in your store account — thanks to a $69 million settlement of a price-fixing case brought against major book publishers by state attorneys general.
Amazon has emailed customers about the refunds, which will likely be 30 cents to $1.32 for each e-book purchased between April 1, 2010, and May 21, 2012.
Take note: Customers of other companies that sell e-books will also get refunds.
