My Largest Class Action Lawsuit Check Yet!

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read my disclosure for more info.

While I don’t specifically go searching for class action lawsuits (but you can at sites like:, I will occasionally stumble upon a site or blogger who posts about one and can’t help to take the ~5 minutes to fill out a claim form if I qualify.

Usually, you’ll get a few dollars by check 2-3 years after you fill out the claim form paperwork.  Sometimes it takes longer, much longer.

Back in 2008, Jonathan at posted about the De Beers diamond company being accused of a naughty monopoly and artificially raising diamond prices.

I filled out the form and frankly forgot all about it.  5 1/2 years later in 2013 a check for $62.82 showed up in my mailbox.

It was the largest class action lawsuit check I had ever received until this past week when a check for $283.30 arrived from the Justice store.

This class action lawsuit processed a lot quicker, I first found out about it just last year from a forum.

Having two tween daughters, I spent my fair share of money in Justice.  They were accused of misleading shoppers by marking items ‘40% off’ when this price was in reality the regular price.

I had to do a little digging to find out how many times and how much money I had spent at Justice over a certain period of time.  It was really easy to calculate by searching for my Justice transactions.

Don’t be afraid to spend 5 minutes filling out a class action lawsuit claim form if you qualify for it – who know maybe you’ll get a surprise in your mailbox a couple years later.

What has been your largest class action lawsuit check?

  1. We’re expecting a $1200 check from purchases made thru the Honest Company website over the last 5 years. It’s still in court but will be an awesome surprise when it arrives in the mailbox!
