If this is the first you have heard about an e-book refund, the next thing you will notice is a credit in your Amazon or B&N account for books purchased between April 1, 2010 to May 21, 2012. The option to 1) opt out of the settlement, 2) file a claim, or 3) apply to receive a check for your part of the settlement expired last December. You can read a bit more about this process at Publisher’s Weekly.
Given that the time period was during the heyday of Kindle and Nook interest in schools, there should be some credits on the way, even though they will mostly be of the thirty cents per title variety since only New York Times bestsellers from the period earn more than that.
