Check your Spam folder if you believe you are entitled to a refund from Fictionwise Buywise Club and haven't received an email regarding reimbursement.

I had a 5 year Buywise membership still in effect so I got $49.95 but I think that's way more than I was entitled to because I only had about two or three years left.  I can't remember the cost of each year's membership though.

Anyway I put it into an Amazon egiftcard so I can get some ebooks later.  I really wanted to put it into a Kobo giftcard but apparently that's not available in the States.

Well, that's great! I'm glad you got the refund. I used to buy from them every freaking week! But I never had the membership. I miss their store. I loved those discounts.

I never had the membership either but the weekly specials were killer.  Loved to browse the new releases that were discounted anyway and add the weekly discount on top of that.
