Red Bull might owe you money, according to a settlement it reached last month.
The settlement says customers who purchased a Red Bull drink between 2002 and Oct. 3, 2014, are owed $10 cash or $15 in Red Bull products.
The lawsuit was filed by customers who argued they were misled about the product's benefits, including the phrase, "Red Bull gives you wings."
Red Bull recently agreed to pay the money — totaling $13 million — to consumers to settle two consumer class-action lawsuits. Plaintiffs in the cases argued the company's marketing misrepresented the functionality and safety of the company's drinks.
Red Bull said they agreed to the settlement to avoid further litigation, but denied they did anything wrong.
To receive a $10 cash payment or $15 in Red Bull products, you have to submit a claim form, or call 877-495-1568 and ask that it be sent to you by mail. No proof of purchase is necessary to receive payment.
I liked "Shades of Guilt". It was a well told story and the fact that the first two words uttered by the narrator were "Portrait of" put a smile on my face. Good ending too. (And it's nice to see I-Man getting some work)
