At least you got money. I was in a class action suit for eye bag cream that didn't work. The lawyers got millions of dollars and and I got a tube of stretch mark cream!

Well I finally cashed in that massive 5.03 coupon.

The first cashier could not get it to scan.

The second one could not get it scan and had to call in a supervisor I guess.

The supervisor I guess would wind up calling over a fourth person who FINALLY was able to get the coupon to scan....

6 cans of tuna fish for a whopping 31 cents in the end

I would have opted for a cash settlement, for less money.

I was part of a class action suit against a former employer for overcharging for long-term disability insurance. I received a check for about $1,100. WAY more than I ever paid in. That was back in the 90s. Nothing since.

You had to buy at least 3 Starkist items to get to use the coupon. I just wanted to be as close to 5.03 as possible while going over to use the whole coupon.
