Have you purchased a Red Bull Product in the past 12 years? I have too. Well, there were some class-action lawsuits brought against the company alleging that Red Bull's marketing misrepresents the safety and functionality of the drinks. People claimed they were "misled" by the slogan "Red Bull gives you wings." Customers also complained they were mislead by the company's claims that Red Bull increases your performance, improves your concentration and improves your reaction time!

In May 2015, a final hearing will be held to determine whether the settlement will be approved. If it is, you will be paid within 150 days thereafter. No proof of purchase is necessary to get a settlement benefit. To receive a $10 cash payment or $15 in Red Bull products, you must submit a claim form. All claims must be received by March 2, 2015. To obtain a claim form be sent to you, call (877) 495-1568. The four ways to submit the form are listed below.
