In Two Settlements, Money for Apple and Amazon Customers
Apple and Amazon.com customers were notified on Tuesday of opportunities to get money back as a result of two legal settlements with the government. Both cases revolved around Apple. Apple emailed customers eligible for a refund related to a federal complaint that children could make purchases in iPhone or iPad apps without adequate parental consent. In January, Apple reached an agreement with the Federal Trade Commission to pay at least $32.5 million in refunds. In another email, Amazon notified customers about store credit they received for e-book purchases, a result of a settlement reached with five major book publishers.
