Did you buy electronics between 1998 and 2002? When we say electronics, that includes everything from computers to video games, to MP3 players, to printers, to PDAs, to DVD players and more!
Chances are, you bought one of those during that time frame. So pay close attention. You might be eligible for some money in a class action lawsuit.
All those items included something called "Dynamic Random Access Memory" or DRAM. The lawsuit claims the manufacturers fixed the price of DRAM, which meant people who bought items with DRAM paid more. So the 12 companies involved (Elpida, Hitachi, Hynix, Infineon, Micron, Mitsubishi, Mosel, Nanya, NEC, Samsung, Toshiba, & Winbond) settled for $310 million.
That's where you come in. If you bought an item from one of these companies during that time frame, you can file a claim to get some of that money. Submit a claim form by Aug. 1, 2014, and you'll be able to get at least $10. But larger purchasers could receive a $1,000 or more.
