Find A Class Action Suit That Benefits You

In the past, I have been a participant in class action suits that were the result of my using a product or service. I was notified by mail of these. But some are targeted to a wide audience and you find out about them from the news, friends or the internet. I always like to notify friends of the ones I think may interest them, and I'd like to share how I find them.

Step 1

News of class action suits can be found in conventional newspapers. My daughter told me about the article she had read and by acting quickly, I received a free high-end mascara just by signing my name and standing in line about 10 minutes. However, you have to move fast. Two days after I received mine, I took my daughter-in-law to get one and they were out - and we tried two stores.

Step 2

To find current class action suits, I use this site. They list current and open class action suits. Their web site is www.topclassactions.com(also listed in resources). It's easy enough to check it out every day or week.

Step 3

I love www.smartmoney.com and "deal of the day". The one I read about today is the Bank of America overdraft fees/charges class action suit.

Step 4

Another site that I found is www.consumerist.com (http://consumerist.com/tag/class-action-lawsuits/. They don't have a list but report on current suits. As of this writing, they list Sprint and early termination fees.

Warnings

  • Be sure you are entitled to be a part of the class action suit.
