Only 42 People Want A Piece of Dell's $1.5 Million Settlement? Seriously?

Come on people, Dell agreed to dole out $1.5 million to customers who had problems with warranty repairs, credit financing, and rebates, but with only a week before the filing deadline, Washington’s Attorney General says that only 42 people in his state have submitted claim forms. We know there are eligible Dell victims out there. Our tipline alone has nearly 1,000 Dell-related complaints. Please, fill out your claim form now and get the money your state attorney generals earned for you!

Who is eligible for restitution under the Dell multi-state settlement?

Anyone who bought Dell goods or services between April 1, 2005 and April 13, 2009

AND experienced one or more of the following may be eligible for restitution:

  • A problem with a Dell financing offer
  • A problem with a Dell rebate
  • A problem with Dell financing
  • A problem with a Dell repair, warranty or servicing

Residents of the following 34 states are eligible for refunds:

Filing a claim form does take a little bit of actual work in that you have to go to your state Attorney General’s page and fill out a form, but this is a rare chance to make Dell pay for their shoddy service. Spend five minutes finding the form and submit it before the April 13 deadline.

Dude, don’t wait on that Dell refund! [All Consuming]
