Announcement: Expect an e-mail – Another Apple Credit 9 comments

I received an email from Barnes & Noble informing me that I was eligible for another credit from Apple. The e-mail from Barnes & Noble stated “The credit results from the Settlements reached in an antitrust lawsuit filed by State Attorneys General and Class Plaintiffs about the price of electronic books.”
Curious, I googled for a credit from Amazon. I found this:

Apple eBooks Antitrust Settlement
In November 2014, a federal court approved a Settlement of antitrust lawsuits brought against Apple, Inc. (“Apple”) by State Attorneys General and Class Plaintiffs about the price of electronic books (“eBooks”). [snip]
Eligible customers do not need to do anything to receive these credits. If you are eligible, we have already calculated your credit and have added it to your Amazon account. As long as you have credit remaining, we will automatically apply it to your purchase of qualifying items through, an Amazon device or an Amazon app. [snip]
Eligible customers should have received a notification email from Amazon on Oct 18, 2017. This credit will expire at 11:59pm HST on April 20, 2018.
Your Settlement Credit:
Total Credit: $xx.xx
Unused Credit: $xx.xx

A practical idea to help Houston – What they need most – Underwear 4 comments

Houston Still Needs Help…
For the many Houston residents impact by Hurricane Harvey, consider making a donation of underwear. Children, teens and adults are all in need of new, fresh undies.
Why donate undies? Although Houstonians are receiving tons of donations of used clothing, undies cannot be ‘used’ for hygiene reasons so new undies are in high demand.
How do I donate? Purchase undies here from Amazon’s Houston Emergency Relief Undies wish list (not an affiliate link, we will not profit from these sales).
Have them shipped to:
Undies for Everyone
1700 Bissonnet St.
Houston, TX 77005

The nonprofit organization, Undies for Everyone, will make sure displaced families get their new undies.
