Apple started issuing refunds to all those eligible users who purchased iWork and iLife applications — which includes Pages, Keynote, Numbers, iPhoto and iMovie — after September 1st.
Last month at the iPhone launch event on September 10th, Apple CEO Tim Cook announced that all devices bought after September 1st would be given the option to get iWork and iLife applications for free. The iWork applications includes Keynote, Numbers and Pages, which are normally priced at $9.99. On the other hand iPhoto and iMovie costs $4.99.
Reported by 9to5Mac, Apple has started crediting the accounts of the eligible users who purchased the applications after September 1st. Users who paid for the applications before the announcement or bought the application in confusion after the announcement, are also being contacted by Apple for refunds. However, do note that the amount varies from customer to customer and will be refunded only for the applications they purchased, not the whole iWork and iLife suite.
Here is an extract from the email.

On September 10, 2013, Apple announced that iPhoto, iMovie, Keynote, Pages, and Numbers iOS apps are now available as a free download on the App Store for qualifying iOS 7 compatible devices activated on or after September 1, 2013.

The refunds can be clained via iTunes redeem code, which will be included in the email.
