Claim your refund for useless Airborne cold supplement
It wasn't. In 2006, ABC News discovered that the "clinical study" that the company had been touting as proof that its product cured colds was not really very clinical, nor much of a study.
"There was no clinic, no scientists and no doctors," ABC reported. "The man who ran things said he had lots of clinical trial experience. He added that he had a degree from Indiana University, but the school says he never graduated."
That report sparked a class-action lawsuit. Now, while not admitting any wrongdoing, the company has agreed to settle the lawsuit, and it will offer Airborne customers a refund on sales, paying out $23 million.
You can claim your refund by filling out a form at this Web site. Airborne will refund the full price of all Airborne products for which you have a proof of purchase.
But if you don't have a receipt, you can still get a refund on up to six products. The company will give you $10.50 per box of Seasonal Airborne, $2.75 per box of Gummi Airborne, and $6.99 for all other Airborne products.
It's not supposed to be "free money" notredave.
Although they don't require the p-o-p, it would still be wrong to request a "refund" if you didn't actually purchase their product.
you, know, i've bought this product, and have two containers in my medicine cabinet as I type. But I'm still not going to ask for a refund, and I think it's disgusting that certain types of people will fill out forms without having bought the product just to steal money from the company, even if they did use some deception when selling the product.
