Customers who purchased a Red Bull drink between 2002 and Oct. 3, 2014 are owed $10 cash or $15 in Red Bull products, according to a settlement the company agreed to last month.

The company recently agreed to pay $13 million to consumers to settle two consumer class action lawsuits. Plaintiffs alleged that Red Bull’s marketing misrepresents both the functionality and safety of the company’s beverages.

The drinkers claimed they were misled by the slogan “Red Bull gives you wings,” stating the company’s advertised benefits of “increased performance,” “improved concentration” and “reaction speed” are false.

Red Bull said they agreed to the settlement to avoid further litigation. However, the company denies any wrongdoing.

To receive a $10 cash payment or $15 in Red Bull products, you must submit a claim form or call 877-495-1568 and requesting that it be sent to you by mail.

No proof of purchase is necessary to obtain settlement benefits.There are four ways to submit a filled-out Claim Form:

  1. On this website (filed online by no later than March 2, 2015);
  2. By email to the Class Action Settlement Administrator at energydrinksettlement@gcginc.com (by no later than March 2, 2015); or
  3. By fax to the Class Action Settlement Administrator at 844-553-1373 (by no later than March 2, 2015); or
  4. By mail to the Class Action Settlement Administrator at Energy Drink Settlement, c/o GCG, P.O. Box 35123, Seattle, WA 98124-5123 (postmarked no later than March 2, 2015).

The court will hold a hearing on May 1, 2015 to decide whether the settlement will be approved. Payments will be distributed within 150 days after the settlement is agreed upon.

    Anyone who took part in this lawsuit or claims the 10 dollars should be ashamed of themselves. Everyone talks about corporate greed and corruption, but I say the average citizen is just as bad, if not worse.

    Pretty sad BC I would definitely take money from a corporation especially one who takes part in marketing and providing large quantities of psychoactive stimulants to kids like myself @ 11&12 but not to mention everyone who has died/ kidney failure.

      Really? Taking 10 dollars will make all those problems you “believe” are a result of drinking red bull go away? Seriously, if you are so determined that one thing is the cause of all those problems you are naive.

        Right! I’ve been laughing at all these comments. Some people just like handouts way too much and don’t take responsibility for their own actions. I don’t regret drinking redbull but I’m sure as hell not going to feak out over 10 bucks!

  • Cody

    What forget the 10$ im still gonna drink redbull everyday because it increases consternation speed and hasn’t cause anything bad to me yet because I drink water after I finish my red bull

  • Thomas

    I am from Austria and proud to have companies like Red Bull successful. What does the law and government influenced averaged US cititzen think? With 3 Red Bull a day over 2 years, wings are going to grow out of your back?? Here we drink Red Bull with Vodka and it´s the most popular drink when going out. And this is not to escape the police and drink & fly home…

  • Kia Young

    Redbull is genius! They know they can toss out that 13 million because chances are MOST people who apply for TEN dollars are going to buy more red bull with it.
    You go redbull!
    Ill take the 15$ in product option please :)

  • Karri Levens

    I used to drink them all the time when I was younger. This is a ridiculous lawsuit. It’s just a slogan, it’s not meant to be taken literally. Anyone who files a claim is just cheap and dishonest.

  • Charles A my

    cool tha’,s an extra $10 i do’t have to reach into my pocket to get. so that i can get me some more red bull.

  • Sinbad

    It has always been a crappy product, made from questionable ingredients and it had/has a metallic aftertaste… makes sodium saccharin seem like a dream! It’s about time that someone took them to court! A win for the everyday man!

  • Beware

    I think it’s a scam. The main site doesn’t exist. EnergyDrinkSettlement.com doesn’t even have a valid website up. Do not submit your personal information in hopes of getting a free $10. Ask yourself, is it worth it?

  • Beau

    Its not a nutritional product but I’ve purchased many Redbull drinks to fuel my escapades! I won’t stop buying the product because of a silly slogan, but I’ll accept the $15 product option as a customer appreciation gift! LOL! Now I think I’m growing wings!

  • Helen

    I’ve never drank it, the smell put me off, but check the lawsuit, it says Red Bull will part with $13 million total, divided by however many people apply, now if that’s say 5 million, they each get back $2.60, the more people apply the less they get back. Great free publicity for the company though.

  • Lisa nCali

    That’s a lie. Red bull does give you energy but to where you feel a burned out.EEnergy supplements are better than taking all of these mixture’s of supplements combined. Myself I would rather drink a glass of coffee.
    Falsely suing though is all bad. Might as well Sue all of these fat corporation’s that cause CANCER Mc. Donald’s. Ect . Fast food PERIOD. Also the one’s that are killing us all . Monsanto. MSG.=CANCER

  • Dave Hendrie

    The key words are… “If the court approves the settlement.” If the court does not approve the settlement, RedBull has a boat load of targeted opt-in email addresses to send promos to. Probably the BEST marketing gimic I have heard in a long time. Use the law to do the marketing.
    Don’t forget to send me my $15 in free RedBull product. :)

  • construction

    Building construction is a process of adding small or big structures to land or real property. Most of the building construction jobs are small reconstructions like adding bathroom or reconstruction of a room. Often times, the titleholder of the property acts as a designer, paymaster and laborer for the entire job. However, all the building construction jobs include several elements in legal consideration, financial and usual design.

    Probably in often the case using my mother, complete catastrophe.
    This ought to make you’re search smaller complicated, seeing that there should be precise web pages based mostly on things you would have to like.
    You actually need not only dress through drag, however, as understand it
    is always a come-as-you-are type out of scene.
