For more than two decades, Red Bull has been using the slogan “Red Bull gives you wings” and claims its energy drinks help increase performance, concentration and reaction speed. But according to some disappointed customers, that’s just not true. The company has been sued for false advertising and misleading its consumers, and settled for $13 million.
So if you’ve bought a Red Bull between January 1, 2002, and October 3, 2014, you’re eligible for a settlement of either $10 cash or $15 worth of Red Bull products.
That’s right. All you have to do is file a claim online by March 2, 2015 and you’re on your way to either some cold hard cash or liquid sugar, take your pick. No proof of purchase required.
A hearing will be held on May 1, 2015 to decide whether the settlement will be approved. If the court approves the settlement, payment will be distributed 150 days later (pending appeals).
You can also file a claim form via the following methods:
- By mail: Class Action Settlement Administrator at Energy Drink Settlement, c/o GCG, P.O. Box 35123, Seattle, WA 98124-5123
- By fax: (844) 553-1373
- By email: firstname.lastname@example.org
