Walmart Just Agreed To A 45 Million dollar Class Action Law Suit Settlement

What happened is Walmart has agreed to pay back consumers who bought weighted goods and pre-bagged citrus between October 19, 2018 and January 19, 2024.

According to Top Class Actions:

It's been alleged that during that time, their Point Of Sale machines would raise the weight of the weighted goods when marked at a Rollback price, causing it to be more than advertised. They also allegedly advertised bagged produce weights that were more than the actual weight of the product.  Sold-by-weight products on clearance with a reduced price also had a discrepancy between the price per pound and the price charged.

Nobody Has Grocery Receipts From That Far Back

Yes, they do.  If you use the Walmart App, you should have receipts going back for as long as you've used it.  I use it for my groceries all the time, and they know everything I've ever purchased since I downloaded the app.

You can make a claim without a receipt.  It will work like this:

  • Claim 1-50 products purchased, receive $10
  • Claim 51-75 products purchased, receive$15
  • Claim 76-100 products purchased, receive $20
  • Claim 101 or more products purchased, receive $25

Remember, lying about your purchases is considered perjury, and it can hurt people who should actually benefit from this claim.
