Keurig K-Cup Settlement

Keurig K-Cup Settlement

Keurig has agreed to pay $31 million to settle claims it violated antitrust laws by fixing the price of its Keurig K-Cup products. The lawsuit has been pending since 2014. It claims that Keurig monopolized or attempted to monopolize and restricted, restrained, foreclosed, and excluded competition in order to dictate the prices of Keurig K-Cup Portion Packs at artificially high levels. This is a violation of Sections 1 and 2 of the Sherman Act, 15 U.S.C. §§ 1 and 2, Section 3 of the Clayton Act, 15 U.S.C. § 14, and various state antitrust, unfair competition, consumer protection, unjust enrichment, and other laws.

This settlement benefits individuals who purchased Keurig K-Cup Portion Packs from retailers other than Keurig between Sept. 7, 2010, and Aug. 14, 2020, in all states other than Mississippi and Rhode Island; between March 24, 2011, and Aug. 14, 2020, in Mississippi; or between July 15, 2013, and Aug. 14, 2020, in Rhode Island.

Payout

The $31,000,000 sum that Keurig has agreed to pay, will be used to pay Settlement Class Members who send in a valid Claim Form, after attorneys’ fees, Settlement and class administration costs, and other expenses have been deducted.

The value of any claim will be based on the location of the purchase of the Keurig K-Cup Portion Pack and any proof of purchase. In accordance with the Plan of Allocation, the value of a claim will be calculated by the following matrix:

Conclusion

This lawsuit goes back a while, and you need to provide receipts. But this is a popular product so many people could be eligible for reimbursement. If you purchased form a big retailer such as Amazon or others, it’s possible that you can find receipts or proof or purchase in your accounts. Just make sure you file your claim and provide the required documentation before the deadline.

  1. I have two purchases of Keurig brewers with receipts but I don’t see any place on the online form for brewers, just the KCups. Am I missing something? Thanks.

  2. Wonder why my state of Illinois does not appear in these lists?

    I have bought a ton of Keurig pods “free after rebate” from a Officemax/Depot. Hope I can dig out some receipts. Hahahahaha

  3. Screen shots from Amazon worked well for me on this. Still a pain and I can’t imagine most people will bother.
