Apple Settlement Deal: Unauthorized In-App Purchase Refunds

apple

If you were one of the many parents who were shocked to find unauthorized in-app purchases charged to your account, you’ll want to check out this settlement with Apple. When you thought you were authorizing a one-time in-app purchase for your children, in reality you were opening a 15-minute window for additional charges.

Apple has until March 31 to make changes to their billing procedures and offer refunds to customers. If you have questions about these refunds, contact iTunes Store support.

To read more about this settlement, and find instructions on how to turn off in-app purchases altogether, take a look at this post from Smart Apps for Kids.

    There are lots of settlements to be had and I qualified for at least 5 of the ones featured in this website

    http://www.classactionrebates.com

    As a couponer the big ones for me were the Emergen-c, Duracell and Naked Juice.

    What I do is I check this website once a month I apply for the ones I qualify and I keep track of the ones I have submitted using a google spreadsheet. When the check comes I set it aside in a separate account and use half for charity and half for our Christmas funds.

    For the majority of these you don’t need a receipt but I think it is very important to be honest and just file for the ones you qualify for.

    This app situation happened to me. I had downloaded a free toddler music app and handed the iPad to my 1 year old. A few days later I recieved an email there was an in-app purchase of $10 made! I didn’t know about this settlement but I called and asked for the $10 back when it happened and apple refunded it.
