Walmart’s $45 Million Settlement: Claim Up to $500 Back

Walmart's $45 Million Settlement Claim Up to $500 Back

Walmart, a leading global retailer, has agreed to a $45 million settlement in response to allegations that it overcharged customers for certain products.

This case specifically involves “weighted goods” and “bagged citrus” bought between October 19, 2018, and January 19, 2024.

Weighted goods typically include products like packaged meats and seafood, which are sold based on weight and often have fluctuating weights. Bagged citrus refers to packaged citrus fruits such as oranges, lemons, limes, and grapefruit.

The lawsuit accused Walmart of inaccuracies in its point-of-sale systems, particularly when items were on “Rollback” promotions, causing the actual prices customers paid to exceed the discounted prices advertised.

Additionally, it claimed that the actual weight of bagged produce, such as citrus fruits, was less than what was promoted, leading to further overcharging. Despite denying any wrongdoing, Walmart opted to settle to avoid the complexities of a trial.

Eligibility to File a Claim

Eligibility for the settlement is open to anyone who purchased the “weighted goods” and/or “bagged citrus” from a Walmart between Oct. 19, 2018, and Jan. 19, 2024. Importantly, claimants do not need to have retained their receipts to be eligible.

Compensation Details

The compensation varies based on the number of items purchased:

  • Customers who bought 1 to 50 “weighted goods” and/or “bagged citrus” can claim $10
  • Customers who bought 51 to 75 “weighted goods” and/or “bagged citrus” can claim $15
  • Customers who bought 76 to 100 “weighted goods” and/or “bagged citrus” can claim $20
  • Customers who bought 101-plus “weighted goods” and/or “bagged citrus” can claim $25
  • For those who have receipts, they can claim 2% of the total purchase amount, up to a maximum of $500.
