Two years later, Red Bull finally reimburses customers of its popular energy drink for false advertising in the form of drinks or checks.
It seems like so long ago that we got news from Red Bull that they were hit with a $13 million class-action lawsuit stemming from the fact that the drink didn’t actually “give you wings” If you were one of the thousands of customers that signed up for a piece of the settlement, good news! According to Honda-Tech’s thread on the manner that originated months ago and has been updated from time to time, it looks like people are just now receiving either a check, energy drinks or both.

If you’ve been to any college campus, gone to any racing or drift event or entered into any convenience store since 1987, you’ve come across that famous slogan “…gives you wings” on cans of that famous energy drink. Thanks to that lawsuit from Plaintiff Benjamin Careathers who claimed that he’d been drinking Red Bull since 2002 and argued that he, in more articulate words, didn’t in fact get wings, this particular lawsuit was born.
After the multi-billion dollar company settled on $13 million last year, nary a word from what happened to that settlement has surfaced until just a few days ago. When you signed up for reimbursement from the company, you had the choice of a check or drinks.
So if you receive a four-pack of Red Bull or a mysterious check in the mail, know that this originates from the settlement you signed up for from more than a year ago. And if you haven’t received anything yet, hold tight as it’s on the way.
