My settlement amount has not gone down even buying an e-book....
Yeah, that is odd. I had some pending subscribe and save items so it might have been acting a bit odd as the last day to change that is tomorrow I think. In the end, it doesn't really matter since we can use it on anything. But this way I can now separate in my head what it is I am spending on books for basically free and what else I need from amazon which I will use CC for.Betsy the Quilter said:Thanks, I hadn't looked at that page, found it now. And interesting that yours and Chris's are treated differently.
But it does say in the FAQ (see my earlier post) that the credit can be used for anything.
you know, i didn't think about using the settlement towards a new kindle.... thanks.Paegan said:Mine came through yesterday. I got a credit of $393. I didn't think I had purchased that many books. I was debating about either purchasing a new Kindle or a set of expensive artist pencils I've been eye-balling for the past few months. As I already have three working Kindles, I went with the artist pencils. Nice surprise none the less.
Woah. Now assuming it was all NYT best sellers, easier to calculate right now. That means they purchased 272 NYT best selling books in 2 years. My math skills are not enough to assume some NYT and some non.crebel said:There is someone on the Amazon boards reporting their email says $1,884.73 - I can't even wrap my mind around that!
Or they could have purchased 1200 non best sellers.Atunah said:Woah. Now assuming it was all NYT best sellers, easier to calculate right now. That means they purchased 272 NYT best selling books in 2 years. My math skills are not enough to assume some NYT and some non.

Bestsellers earned $6.93 each and other books earned $1.57 each
If N is the number of bestsellers puchased and I is the number of others purchased, the equation that describes what you got is
6.93N + 1.57I = 1884.73
Pick a number for N and a number for I and solve for the other one. There will be lots of answers -- keeping in mind that I and N are always integers -- 'cause probably you didn't buy only part of a book. It's a good problem for a HS math student . . . . .
Also, N + I = T, where T is the total number of books purchased. If we knew T, we could figure N and I
