Your Chance to Get Your Share of Money From Uber Settlement — But…

You may be eligible for a share of as much as $32,500,000.00 from a class action settlement which was reached in litigation if you used the Uber ride sharing service in the United States and paid a safe rides fee between Tuesday, January 1, 2013 through Sunday, January 31, 2016 — but you must submit your claim by Monday, January 8, 2018.

Your Chance to Get Your Share of Money From Uber Settlement — But…

If you are a member of this class action, you are eligible to receive a share of the settlement amount — by timely and validly claiming through submission of a claim form — of 25 cents for your first ride with an Uber ride service with a safe rides fee; and then a per-ride amount for each additional ride on an Uber ride service with a safe rides fee during the class period.

The settlement share for the average member of this class action is estimated to be approximately $1.07. Payment by default will be credited to your Uber account and will be paid toward your next Uber ride in the United States once you receive payment. If you do not have an Uber account, you must elect for payment either via PayPal or eCheck — both of which requires completing a form manually by Monday, January 8, 2018.

You can choose to exclude yourself from — or object to — this class-action lawsuit.

Other Settlements For Which You May Be Eligible

As a reminder, you may also be eligible for benefits from settlements which have been reached in an antitrust litigation currently pending in federal court pertaining to lithium ion batteries purchased between Saturday, January 1, 2000 and Tuesday, May 31, 2011 — and you must submit your claim by Wednesday, November 29, 2017 at 11:59 in the evening Pacific Standard Time.

You may also be eligible for a share of as much as $12.5 million dollars from an antitrust settlement which was reached in litigation if you received pre-recorded telephone calls between July of 2009 and March of 2014 on your residential or cellular telephone lines initiated by Resort Marketing Group, Incorporated during which it offered a free cruise with Carnival Corporation & PLC; Royal Caribbean Cruises, Limited; or Norwegian Cruise Lines, Limited as a promotion — but you must submit your claim by Friday, November 3, 2017.

Another settlement for which you may be eligible is if you purchased certain products manufactured by The Honest Company, Incorporated between Tuesday, January 17, 2012 and Monday, July 10, 2017 — but you must submit your claim by Monday, October 23, 2017 to potentially receive your share of as much as $4,155,000.00.

Finally, you may be eligible for a share of as much as $1,750,000.00 from a class action settlement which was reached in litigation if you received Form 1099 from Citibank reporting to the Internal Revenue Service of the United States that you received income attributable to the receipt of promotional American Airlines AAdvantage miles between Thursday, January 1, 2009 through Thursday, July 13, 2017 — but you must submit your claim by Monday, November 27, 2017.

I agree with Chuck, who wrote this article for Doctor of Credit:

“I’m not sure why they aren’t reimbursing the full $1 fee, and just giving $.05 per ride. I guess the rest is going for other fees or was considered somehow fair. Unless you went on a lot of Uber rides, you aren’t getting much. The lawyers get paid…

“Not worth filing for this settlement, just be lazy and take the automatic Uber credit payment which does not require filing at all.”

This is a travesty of a settlement for the consumer — and I believe that Alexander Bachuwa of The Points of Life would agree, based on his experiences with Uber

    So I wonder if the lawyers get their share of this settlement on their Uber accounts as a credit?
