        No, no it's not.

            According to the AG settlement website itself, checks are being processed and mailed today, March 27th, two days after online credits.

             

            Moreover, according to the same site, BN has literally nothing to do with your check, which is why your settlement isn't showing up in BN's system.

             

            13.    When will I receive my check from these settlements? When will the distribution occur?
            Postcard checks were mailed to customers who received the 2013 Settlements notice and Settlement ID and requested a valid check request on March 27, 2014. Postcard checks will be issued directly from the Claims Administrator and will not come from Barnes & Noble.

             

            (underline mine)

             

            Do some research before getting angry.

              That isn't what the court ruled. The court ruled that the METHOD that the publishers used to institute Agency pricing was illegal (collusion). The actual prices, agency scheme, and MFN clauses themselves are all perfectly legal.

                Did you include the BN_  as part of your settlement ID?  I just ask because the first time I looked for mine, I didn't include it.

                  Congrats Isanox on those nice settlement amounts you received. If my understanding of the letter emailed to me from B&N is correct, the settlement monies can be used at B&N stores to purchase either print editions or digital editions (using the bar code in the letter), but on-line the money can only be used to purchase digital books.

                   

                  I received just $7.30 and all the books in which I have current interest are cheaper elsewhere, so the actual value to me is even less.


                  The settlement in as a egift card.  There should be no reason you can't enter it at checkout to buy print editions online.

                      Well, that's a degree of hair splitting that I haven't seen in a while.  Does that mean that if you are mugged while walking down the street, it isn't a crime if the mugger asks you politely for your wallet instead of hitting you alongside of the head before simply taking it? 

                      Do you believe that it is not a crime if a bank robber doesn't show his gun to the teller?

                      Would you consider it to be an acceptable business practice if all of the grocery stores in your city got together and agreed to increase the price of milk by say ... 50%?  Wouldn't the milk,then,  be illegally priced? 

                      If you drive the getaway car in a robbery, are you guilty of robbery?  Al Capone never personally broke anybody's legs when running his "protection" racket.   Does that mean he was not guilty of extortion? 

                      The conspiracy to illegally increase e-book prices resulted in illegally high e-book prices.  As it should, the government stepped in and took action against the criminals.  Now, the criminals are being forced to refund their illegally gained profits from the consumers who were robbed.  Do you not agree with this action?  Do you believe that criminals should be able to keep their ill-gotten gains?  Do you believe that the gains, themselves, are legal, even though the means used to obtain them were not?  Would that philosophy make it okay, for example, to receive stolen goods?   

                      Why are you attempting to make excuses for criminal behavior, toastr?  :smileysurprised:

                        Has anyone actually received their settlement yet? I got the initial email and was able to determine the amount, but where would I see the credit on my account? Where gift cards are normally shown, or somewhere else? Thanks!

                              Kamas ~ Did you get an email first stating that the credit/giftcard was in your account?  I have checked my giftcard area online and so far nothing yet.

                                Got my email this morning saying I have a $13 credit. Checked my account on line and it was there in my gift card account. Pretty happy as I thought I would get just small change....
