Here's Your Chance to Get Back the Money Red Bull Stole From You

Posted By on Thu, Oct 9, 2014 at 1:30 PM

I'm a big fan of the payouts from consumer class action lawsuits. Naked Juice wasn't entirely juice? Thanks for the $8! Rice Krispies wasn't exactly the most nutritious breakfast? I'll take $11 to repair my damaged trust in cereal. Now, Red Bull is the latest company that's paying out a settlement to make up for the fact that people are kind of dumb and believed that the tagline "Red Bull Gives You Wings" implied that you'd be a better athlete or have the ability to fly if they drank the world's most popular energy drink. So, as part of a $13 million payout, anyone who bought a Red Bull in the last ten years (and believed there was some benefit to the product) can apply for either $10 cash or $15 in Red Bull products.

The catch is that this payout is partially determined by how many people apply, and since you don't need really any proof that you actually bought anything (other than electronically signing an affidavit), there will probably be a lot of people trying to get something for nothing.

Still, worth a shot, right? The website is only sporadically working at the moment, but you have until March 2, 2015 to try to get in on the action. Good luck.
