If you purchased a Red Bull since 2002 they have to pay you; here’s how to get it

Red Bull agreed last month to settle two class action lawsuits and any customer who has purchased one of their products during the last 12 years is entitled to a share of the settlement.

According to the terms of the settlement, purchasers of Red Bull products between 2002 and Oct. 3, 2014, can submit a claim form for $10 cash or $15 in product, according to WITI.

Red Bull smallIf the court approves the agreement, the company will pay out $13 million to settle two lawsuits brought by plaintiffs over alleged misrepresentation by the company’s advertising.

Claims by the energy drink producer of “increased performance” and “improved concentration” from drinking Red Bull were fraudulent, plaintiffs argued.

The company denies any wrongdoing, but is willing to pay out $13 million to close out the litigation.

Payments to claimants will be made within 150 days of an approved settlement, according to WITI. A hearing on that approval is scheduled for May 1, 2015.

To obtain the $10 cash or $15 in Red Bull product, consumers must submit a claim form by March 2, 2015. No proof of purchase is necessary to submit a claim.

Claim forms can obtained in one of three ways: downloading one here, calling 877-495-1568 to request one by mail, or writing to the Class Action Settlement Administrator at Energy Drink Settlement, c/o GCG, P.O. Box 35123, Seattle, WA 98124-5123.

Consumers can submit the form to the Class Action Settlement Administrator in one of four ways: by website, email at [email protected], by fax to 844-553-1373, or by mail at the same address as above.

As more people apply,  reimbursement may “be diluted” once the $13 million is reached. 

The claim form must be submitted or postmarked by March 2, 2015.
