If you use LinkedIn, you may be in for a nice payday. The Bay Area-based company has agreed to shell out $13 million for sending out too many emails.

This settles a lawsuit over the site's "add connections" feature.

Some LinkedIn members were upset that contacts they'd requested to connect with had received multiple reminder emails.

If you're a member and you file a claim, you can get up to $1,500.

You have until December 14 to file.
