Red Bull owing every customer $10 for "not giving wings"

We've all heard "Red Bull gives you wings" and for those of us who've tried it, we know it's one enormous lie. Red Bull won't even give you a feather (shocking, Right? I Know!).

Red Bull has agreed to pay customers over $13 million to settle a court case. As soon as the court approves, Red Bull will have to pay every customer $10 or compensate with $15 worth of Red Bull drinks (all customers who purchased between 2002 and 2014). You don't even need your Receipt! Lol

“Even though there is a lack of genuine scientific support for a claim that Red Bull branded energy drinks provide any more benefit to a consumer than a cup of coffee, the Red Bull defendants persistently and pervasively market their product as a superior source of ‘energy’ worthy of a premium price over a cup of coffee or other sources of caffeine,” the suit says.

“Such deceptive conduct and practices mean that [Red Bull’s] advertising and marketing is not just ‘puffery,’ but is instead deceptive and fraudulent and is therefore actionable,” the suit also says.

All those interested in a refund have till March 2 2015 to file a complaint.
