Yes, this has nothing to do with sewing or Along Came Quilting whatsoever. But if it means more money in your pocket for your hobby, thereby having a tiny strand of relevance, perhaps you will forgive my posting this information.
So Canadians take note: If you purchased a product that was LCD panels and/or LCD TVs, computer monitors, or laptops containing LCD panels between January 1, 1998 and December 11, 2006, you are eligible to receive money as a result of a class action settlement. Really. This is not some Nigerian tycoon scam.
The amount you receive will be based on the number of claims filed and the number and type of LCD products you purchased.
Now I know that the time frame was 8-16 years ago, but put your thinking cap on – did you buy a monitor during that timeframe? Or a new LCD TV or laptop? My husband and I thought this back very carefully, and sure enough, we had bought a computer monitor in that timeframe. And since I keep papers well organized, I even found the sales receipt. But don’t worry, even if you don’t have a receipt you can still file a claim!
It only took about 3 minutes to complete the on-line claims process. So people, this is not an onerous job. And after I was finished, I thought there has got to be a slew of consumers who don’t know about this.
So here is the website with all the information: www.lcdclassactioncanada.com. It is very clear and thorough. Not confusing. And there is no cost to file a claim.
And if you still don’t believe me, here is a link to a news article about it: http://www.ctvnews.ca/business/multimillion-dollar-settlements-reached-in-lcd-price-fixing-class-action-1.2000656.
Claims must be filed by December 9, 2014. So don’t sit on this and let the deadline pass. Remember, this could be money in your pocket.
