Did You Buy Red Bull Over the Last Decade? Here’s How to Get Your $10


If you bought Red Bull any time since 2002 or so chances are all you got was a case of the jitters. Now, you can also get $10.

The payout, which could also come in the form of two Red Bull products if you choose, is part of a settlement the Austrian soft drink brand agreed to earlier this week over claims of false advertising. The sticking point was the brand’s slogan, “Red Bull gives you wings,” and claims of increased reaction speed, performance and concentration.

The settlement came out of a class-action suit led by plaintiff Benjamin Careathers, who claimed that the beverage provides a caffeine buzz and no vaunted properties the brand had ascribed to taurine and guarana.

Red Bull is expected to pay more than $13 million and put $6.5 million in a settlement fund this week, according to BevNet.

If you want a piece of that, register here. (Note: At the time of this writing, the link wasn’t working.) No proof or purchase is required, so conceivably you could line up for your $10 even if you never drank Red Bull. But that would make you a liar, too.
