Walmart could owe you up to $500 as part of a settlement: How to file a claim



In the wake of a new class-action lawsuit settlement, Walmart shoppers could receive an unexpected windfall of cash.


Here's everything you need to know about the settlement check if you purchased weighted goods or bagged citrus between October 2018 and January 2024.


What does the lawsuit say?


Walmart customers were "charged more than the lowest advertised price" on the following products, according to the class-action lawsuit: Items sold by weight (otherwise known as "Weighted Goods"), including meat, poultry, pork and seafood. Choose oranges, tangerines, grapefruit and navel oranges that were sold in bulk in plastic or mesh bags (also known as "Bagged Citrus").


How much money will you receive?


Individual payment amounts will vary based on the purchases made during the Settlement Class Period. The amount a Settlement Class Member receives will depend on the number of valid Claim Forms submitted, as well as potential pro rata adjustments and a potential supplemental distribution, according to the settlement website. The following are the possible cash payment amounts:


$10: If you don't have proof of purchase but attest that you bought up to 50 weighted goods and/or bagged citrus in-person during the Settlement Class Period.


$15: If you don't have proof of purchase but attest to buying 51-75 weighted goods and/or bagged citrus in-person during the Settlement Class Period.


$20: If you don't have proof of purchase but attest to buying 76-100 weighted goods and/or bagged citrus in-person during the Settlement Class Period.


$25: If you don't have proof of purchase but attest to buying 101 or more weighted goods and/or bagged citrus in-person during the Settlement Class Period.


Up to $500: If you have proof of purchase for each weighted good and/or bagged citrus that you bought in-person during the Settlement Class Period and have the amount you paid for each item, you will receive 2% of "the total cost of the substantiated Weighted Goods and Bagged Citrus Purchased," up to $500.


If you don't have your receipts handy, you might be able to retrieve them from Walmart's website.


How to file a claim


If you are eligible, you can submit a claim form online or via mail. It must be postmarked or submitted online by June 5, 2024.


Customers will receive payment electronically through Venmo, Zelle, ACH or a virtual pre-paid MasterCard. Those who prefer a paper check — or are unable to receive electronic payment — can request one.
