It’s only fair that companies pay up if their product isn’t as advertised.

So if you purchased from one of these companies below, you might be eligible for a share of these class action lawsuit settlements.

Charmin Freshmates Flushable Wipes

Despite their name, a class action lawsuit against Proctor & Gamble alleges that Charmin’s flushable wipes can cause serious damage to plumbing if flushed.

As a result, consumers who purchased Charmin Freshmates Flushable Wipes between April 6, 2011, and Nov. 26, 2018, can file a claim.

Class members are eligible to receive $30 with proof of purchase, or $0.60 per package without proof of purchase.

The deadline to file a claim is Feb. 28, 2019. 

Black & Decker, Farberware

Consumers who bought a number of Black & Decker or Faberware products are eligible for partial refunds thanks to a new class action settlement.

The suit argues that the appliance companies misled consumers about product manufacturing.

To be eligible, you must have purchased certain Black & Decker and/or Farberware brand small kitchen appliances between Feb. 5, 2014, and Oct. 19, 2018.

You have until Feb. 28, 2019, to submit your claim.

Dial Complete Soap

You’ve probably heard claims that Dial soap “kills more germs than any other liquid hand soap,” but this class action suit alleges that Dial may have been misleading with this advertising.

While the company denies any wrongdoing, they’ve agreed to pay out $7.4 million in this suit.

Consumers who bought Dial Complete Foaming Liquid Hand Soap between Jan. 1, 2001 and Jan. 2, 2019 can claim $0.27 per package of soap, on up to 30 packages without proof which adds up to $8.10.

The deadline to submit a claim is April 12, 2019. 

Fiat Chrysler

Drivers of certain Jeep and Chrysler vehicles could qualify for up to $4,000.

Class members include owners and lessees of 2014 and 2015 Jeep Cherokee, 2015 Jeep Renegade, 2015 Chrysler 200, or 2015 ProMaster City.

According to the lawsuit, a defect with the transmission caused loud noises and gear shifts in these models.

The claim deadline is May 15, 2019.

Ally Financial

According to this class action suit, Ally Financial hit consumers with hidden fees through its vehicle finance programs.

The suit alleges that Ally’s “SmartLease Contracts” did not disclose fees that were later put upon consumers who purchased a new vehicle.

Consumers who leased a vehicle in accordance with a SmartLease Agreement with Ally, and then purchased the vehicle under the terms of the lease between June 4, 2009, and June 18, 2018, are eligible for this suit if Ally assessed them a “dealer” or “documentary” fee.

Class members can file a claim here until Feb. 28, 2019.

Behr

Behr’s DeckOver product apparently deteriorates faster than the company advertised, so customers can file a claim for removal or repair of their deck.

Anyone who bought and used DeckOver between Sept. 1, 2012, and June 27, 2018 are eligible. DeckOver was only sold at Home Depot and went for $35 a gallon.

Behr has agreed to refund any DeckOver buyers with proof of purchase and cover necessary deck repairs. The deadline is Feb. 27, 2019. Just in time to fix up your deck for spring!
