Did you know you may be eligible to receive free money or other benefits from a class-action settlement?
It typically takes just a few minutes to file a claim, and you could be entitled to cash, products or other compensation.
Last month, I told you about nine settlements currently accepting claims. This month I’ve found six more great options. I know you’re busy, so let’s get started!
1. Earth Friendly Products
If you’re like me, you read labels and do your best to purchase natural cleaning products that don’t have harmful ingredients.
Well, if you purchased Earth Friendly Products labeled as “all natural,” “100% Natural,” “Naturally-derived,” “Plant-based” or something similar, you may be entitled to up to $25.
The Earth Friendly Products settlement resolves a class action lawsuit alleging the so-called “natural” cleaning products include methylisothiazoline (MIT), a powerful allergen and skin irritant.
You must have purchased the products between Jan. 23 and Nov. 5, 2011 to be eligible for payment.
The deadline to file a claim is Feb. 15, 2016. Find out if you qualify now!
2. Norton Download Insurance
Did you purchase Norton Download Insurance or Extended Download Service for Norton Products between Jan. 23, 2005 and March 10, 2011?
You may be entitled to free cash!
Symantec and Digital River allegedly misrepresented that these services were necessary if a customer wanted to re-download their software more than 60 days after purchase.
You can file a claim to receive a cash payment of up to $50 for each download service you purchased.
The deadline to file a claim is Feb. 18, 2016. Learn more.
3. Rite Aid Pharmacy Records
If you paid Rite Aid a $50 or $85 fixed records charge for pharmacy records after Jan. 1, 2005, you may be entitled to a $25 or $50 Rite Aid gift card for each fee you paid.
A settlement has been reached after Rite Aid allegedly charged customers unreasonable and arbitrary fees. The amount bears no relationship to the actual cost Rite Aid experiences processing records requests.
The deadline to file a claim is March 7, 2016. Find out more.
4. Toyota Corolla
If you’re a current or former owner or lessee of a 2009 or 2010 Toyota Corolla, you may be eligible for benefits from a recent settlement.
Toyota settled the suit alleging some Corollas’ electric power steering systems caused the cars to suddenly veer in one direction during normal use.
If you qualify, you may be eligible for reimbursement of the costs you paid to install a re-tuned electronic control unit. Or, you may qualify to have the part installed for free or for a discount.
The deadline to file a claim is March 15, 2016. More information is available here.
5. Wells Fargo Inspection Fee
Wells Fargo has settled a suit alleging it improperly assessed property inspections when a mortgage borrower fell behind on payments.
The bank concealed the fees from consumers, labeling them as “Other Charges” on mortgage statements.
If you had a mortgage serviced by Wells Fargo, and owe or paid for a bank-assessed inspection fee between Aug. 1, 2004 and Dec. 31, 2013, you may be entitled to compensation.
The deadline to file a claim is March 16, 2016. Click here to learn more.
6. Justice Stores
If you’ve purchased merchandise from a Justice store between Jan. 1, 2012 and Feb. 28, 2015, you may be entitled to up to $20 in cash or a $30 Justice voucher (or more if you have proof of purchase).
The retailer is offering benefits to consumers due to a settlement over claims it misrepresented items as 40% off, when this “sale” price was actually regular price.
Even if you filed a claim for an earlier Justice settlement in Ohio, you may still qualify for benefits from this one.
The deadline to file a claim is April 4, 2016. Learn more.
