Groupon, Zara and Avalon Organics Might Owe You Money. Here’s How to Collect
Last month I told you about eight class-action settlements that pay cash. This month, I’m back to tell you about nine more accepting claims.
Let’s just say this month’s article should be titled, “Do You Buy Things? If So, Somebody Probably Owes You Money!”
If you’ve purchased Groupon vouchers, natural cosmetic products or a refrigerator, you could be entitled to cash benefits from one of these class-action settlements.
Let’s take a look!
If you’re a current or former iYogi subscriber and you received telephone calls on behalf of iYogi -- even if you told them to stop calling -- you could be eligible to receive a cash payment of $40 from a class-action settlement.
To qualify, you must have received at least one call from iYogi or an affiliate between Sept. 23, 2009 and Nov. 18, 2013.
The deadline to file a claim is Jan. 2, 2016. Find out more.
2. Groupon Vouchers
Did you purchase or receive a Groupon voucher between Nov. 1, 2008 and Dec. 1, 2011 that you never redeemed (and you didn’t receive a refund)?
If so, you may be entitled to receive credits for up to 130% off the price of the original, unredeemed, unrefunded Groupon voucher.
The deadline to file a claim is Jan. 9, 2016. Learn more here.
3. JASON and Avalon Organics
Hain Celestial Group has agreed to settle a class action lawsuit over allegations it falsely represented its popular JASON and Avalon Organics cosmetic products as organic.
If you purchased JASON and/or Avalon Organics products that were not USDA-certified as organic, you may be entitled to receive cash and coupons worth up to $80 -- or more if you submit receipts!
To qualify for benefits from this settlement, the Avalon Organics products must have been purchased between May 11, 2007 and Jan. 6, 2015.
The JASON products must have been purchased between May 11, 2007 and Jan. 31, 2011.

Did you shop at Zara and pay with a credit or debit card between Dec. 17, 2014 and Apr. 27, 2015? If so, you may be entitled to $100 or more.

6. Lennox Refrigerator Coils
Lennox Industries Inc. has settled a class-action suit alleging it manufactured and sold defective refrigerator coils.

The deadline to file a claim is Feb. 3, 2016. Learn more here.
8. Michael Kors Outlet Pricing
Michael Kors recently settled a lawsuit alleging it deceptively marketed merchandise at its outlet stores to make consumers believe products were previously available at a retail store, even though they were made specifically for the outlet.
If you bought at least one Michael Kors item at an outlet store with a price tag showing both an “MSRP” and an “Our Price” label, you may be entitled to cash from the settlement.
The amount you receive depends on how much you spent and whether you submit a receipt.
The deadline hasn’t been set, but it’s estimated to be Feb. 18, 2016. Find out if you qualify.

If you purchased upholstered furniture (such as a couch with foam cushions), bedding products (such as a mattress, mattress topper or pillows) or carpet padding containing polyurethane foam that was manufactured in the United States, you may be entitled to cash. (The amount depends how many people file claims.)
To qualify, the polyurethane foam product must have been purchased between Jan. 1, 1999 and Aug. 1, 2015 in certain states.
The deadline to file is Feb. 29, 2016. Learn more.
