    Starkist Tuna Lawsuit

    My wife told me about this and I thought it was a joke but it's real

    Have you bought any Starkist canned tuna in the past six years?

    Or have you tried to participate in a recent Sephora cosmetics rewards promotion, and were frustrated because you, like thousands of other shoppers, got locked out?


    You could have a few dollars coming your way as both companies try to make right with unhappy customers.


    The big settlement that will affect the most people is Starkist tuna's offer to give customers $25 in cash or $50 in Starkist coupons, for those who really like their tuna.


    This comes two years after a man filed a class-action lawsuit, claiming the company was deliberately putting extra water in cans, shortchanging customers.


    A Don't Waste Your Money investigation last year found many brands of canned food containing a significant amount of water.


    Starkist is not admitting to any wrongdoing, but has agreed to settle the case by offering $25 cash refunds to people who bought its canned tuna between 2009 and October 2014.


    Products eligible for refund are chunk light and solid white tuna, in both oil and water, in 5 ounce cans.


    Best of all, you don't need to find your receipts. You just have to swear under oath that you did indeed buy some Starkist tuna.


    Go to the website www.tunalawsuit.com to apply for your piece of the settlement.
    Opportunities are usually disguised as hard work, so most people don't recognize them.

    I don't want $50 worth of tuna!

    Though I suppose I could have given them as Christmas presents

    We could easily eat $50 worth of tuna. I already buy it in bulk at Costco.
