If you're an American Express customer, you could have some money coming your way. AmEx was charged with deceiving its customers and will now have to pay back $85 million. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau says the company illegally charged late fees, promised non-existent $300 rewards and discriminated against applicants over the age of 35. Both Discover and Capital One have been accused of doing the same thing and will also pay back customers. Now, $250,000 AmEx customers will be contacted by the company to let them know if they have money coming to them.

A cornerstone for the arts district in University Circle is now complete. The Museum of Contemporary Art was completed and our WKYC cameras were allowed inside. This is just the latest development in the University Circle neighborhood. Community leaders say their arts and entertainment bring in millions of visitors a year. The MOCA opens officially this weekend and you can check it out for free Monday, October 8.

The new Kindle is out and it's sure to be a hot item this holiday season. The Kindle Paperwhite is thinner than the Kindle Touch and has a battery life up to 8 weeks. The screen is apparently brighter, sharper and front-lit. It retails between $119 and $199. But you won't find it at Walmart or Target. Both stores pulled the plug on the Kindle last month.
