Old Musty Books has a reminder post that if you are an Amazon customer, you probably have a partial credit in your email for books purchased from Simon & Schuster, HarperCollins Publishers LLC., Hachette Book Group, Macmillan and Penguin Group of Pearson.

You don’t have to actually check your email, as the credit will be automatically applied at your next book purchase.

Consumers nationwide who bought e-books through Amazon and other online retailers will get credited a total of $166 million stemming from price-fixing settlements with five publishers, according to the New York State attorney general.
“Illegal actions by these publishers forced consumers in New York and across the nation to pay artificially inflated prices for e-books,” said Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, in a statement.

Schneiderman said the settlements being paid by the publishers apply to consumers in 33 states, with $11.5 million going to customers in New York.
