I added to Amazon as a debit card.


Pro Tip: Now buy an $8.79 Amazon gift card for you Amazon account with it, and then you can delete the now-empty settlement debit card from your payment options.

That $8.79 Amazon gift card gets added to your Amazon account, and can be used as partial payment on a future Amazon purchase. For example, you order something that costs $15.00, then $8.79 comes off the top from your gift card balance and the remaining $6.21 is charged to your usual credit card or other payment source.

Whereas just using your original settlement debit card with $8.79 on it as a payment card on Amazon means that you can only purchase something that totals $8.79 or less with it. And you're unlikely to hit $8.79 on the nose, so you'll end up buying something that costs $8 or so and then be left with some remaining cents sitting on that card unused.

What drug was it?
Let me think . My Mom had Bladder cancer and I know that played a part in the whole thing . Seems like it was Actos but I'm not 100% sure . It rings a bell .

Definition of a class action suit is when you get $12 and the lawyer gets a professional basketball team.

It was pretty widely published that those choosing $ would get very little. After discussions here I went with the credit monitoring. The email for it actually looked fake. It took months to get a new one sent with the access code.
