Thanks, Who Said Nothing in Life is Free!
I have easily bought 200.00 worth of Dannon Yogurt, always the blueberry kind. I did not save my receipts. Is there any chance I could get any money back? I was never sure it was really working, but I loved the taste. Thank you. Could you please let me know.
As for you Pauline, it’s only for the Activia brand, so, if honesty is not an issue for you since you buy the yogurt because you like the taste and it is a healthy snack and not because you thought Activia would help your digestion, then go to the store you normally shop at. Buy an 8 pack of Activia and and 8 pack of the yogurt you normally buy (or if you mix flavors, then just get a few, and see if they come up different on the reciept. If Activia comes up on the reciept, then no, you can’t get a refund for regular Dannon blueberry yogurt, but if it all comes up as Dannon yogurt, then I guess you can go ahead and submit those reciepts. It is the same as stealing though. If you DID buy $200 of Activia, which to me is a bit strange since the regular yogurt tastes better and is healthy and cheaper, then you need to dig up as many reciepts as you can. If you can’t find any, then I believe you can get up to $29.99 w/o a reciept if you sign an affidavit. Me, I get “backed up” b/c of a certain medication I take, so I bought four 8 packs when they were on sale. It was obvious their claims of “restoring regularity” were untrue by the time I finished the second 8 pack. I finished most of what I’d bought and gave the rest away, then just went back to buying the regular yogurt since it is cheaper, tastes better, and is still healthy. I think I tried an activia drink too, so I am only seeking re-imbursement for the approximately $22.60 I spent on Activia, regardless of whether I can or cannot go and buy cases of it today and then send in the reciepts for refunds, as that would definitely be stealing, and in my opinion fraud. Don’t forget as well, that for every $1 you get, those shifty a*#, greedy, corrupt, frivolous lawyers who run the darn country (doubt me?, read the language the Health Care Bill or any other bills going through the senate are written in) are getting $3 or more from a company that has been a staple in our grocery stores for years. So come on people: if you bought a few 4 or 8 packs to help with regularity and it didn’t help, which in my case it didn’t so I assume it probably didn’t help in your cases as well, then fill out the forms to get your money back. Don’t go trying to rip the company off and make the lawyers rich so you can pay for an oil change and a carton of smokes. We have a responsibility to be honest and forthwright here. And for those of you asking if you can go out and buy cases and cases today and then send in the reciepts; does it matter? That would be theft, and if you try and sell some of it, it would also be fraud, and don’t forget to pay the taxes on your fraudulent earnings either or else the IRS can come get you like they got Al Capone. Come on people, has our country deteriorated so much that people spend their time conspiring over the internet to get free yogurt!!!?? It makes me sick. We’ll never crawl out of the recession acting as such. We had 8 years of totally incompetent leadership. Now we’re going on 2 more of the same. Which one was/is worse is irrelevant. We have to learn from our mistakes, and begin electing strong leaders, and if our answers to our own financial crunches are trying to conspire over the internet for free yogurt, then we have lost focus so badly that we may be lost beyond hope! Reagan has passed away, and Bill Clinton has served two terms. The first made us the most politically powerful nation in the world, and kept us safe, the second fixed our economy to the point we were turning a profit. Put your mental yogurt stealing energies into coming up with an idea for a small business or picking a competent politician to vote for come the midterm elections. Maybe volunteer at a homeless shelter, or a nursing home. And yes, I do the aforementioned things, although I don’t have the capital yet to start a small business, I am trying. Come on people, AMerica CAN be the greatest nation in the world again, but it starts with us, the citizens.
It does say 2010 on the website, but that doesn’t make sense to me either. Odd. Is it because they’re still running those “misleading” ads until then.
I know that wouldn’t make any sense if they were still running them?
Seems strange to me…
is it 2010? That doesn’t make any sense to me….because you could go out and buy a $100 right now.
Ok, so maybe I’m not completely awake yet. At the risk of looking foolish, if the correct date is 4/23/10, as it states on their claim form, I could theoretically go out and buy $100 worth of yogurt today and be paid back for ALL of it!? I don’t quite understand why they’d make it a later date, unless it’s b/c there are products out there that have old packaging, and they chose a later date, rather than recall all of their products. Man, it’s got to be so tricky to do all of the right things when you manufacture a product! I wonder what the “misconception” in their advertisement was. Anyone know? I’ve bought several pkgs of Activia b/c it supposedly is good for your digestive system. I wonder if it is not.
I don’t think it is bad for you, my understanding is the lawsuit is because of the way their marketed the products about the probiotics.
You’re a Class Member and may be eligible for a payment if you purchased, not for resale purposes, the Products in the United States at anytime up until April 23, 2010.

Thanks Briana for this info.
