I mentioned yesterday that the makers of Airborne are being sued for $23.3 million for false advertising. This is a class-action lawsuit, so some of that $23.3 million will go back to customers who purchased the product and failed to see cold relief.
If you purchased an Airborne product between May 1, 2001 and November 29, 2007, you qualify to file a claim to your portion of the settlement. To file the claim, complete this form online or mail in your information. You will receive a refund for the product you purchased. You may receive a refund smaller than the full purchase price if the total claims exceed $23.3 million.
Even if you didn’t save a proof of purchase, you can still claim refunds for as many as six purchases above and beyond the claims for any purchases for which you do have proof.
As a purchaser of Airborne, you would also have the option of excluding yourself from or objecting to the settlement. If you need more information, the Airborne Settlement Information and Claim Filing Website has it.
The online form to request your rebate must be submitted by midnight, September 15. If you send your form through the mail, it must be postmarked by September 15.
