    I did not receive a rebate

    ADMIN – Hi Paula,

    If you had the seat described and you did not receive a rebate or refund you may be a member of the class.


    What if Carseat was purchased in 2012 and we still have product no receipt then what

    ADMIN – Hi Delisia,

    You should still be able to file.

  3. Rachel K says:


    I filed a claim for 3 of our seats, but have not received rebate check. When will those be issued or have they been issued already? How can I confirm that my claim was received?

    ADMIN – Hi Rachel,

    You can confirm that your claim was received by reaching out to the class action administrator.

  4. Tabita says:

    Who keeps a receipt for so long? What if you moved from Cali ? What if you still have the car seat and stroller?

    ADMIN – Hi Tabita,

    You don’t need to be in California. You can file without a receipt but you may not get as much.

  5. Julia says:

    Is there any monetary relief for people who purchased the car seat in other states besides California (Texas)?

    ADMIN – Hi Julia,


  6. Asli Baltazar says:

    Hi, when will the refunds will be issued?

    ADMIN – Hi Asli,

    The administrator has not yet released a date.

  7. Judy Toburen says:

    I never received a settlement – is my name on the list

    ADMIN – Hi Judy,

    You would have to check directly with the class action administrator.

  8. Chris Self says:

    I received 2 checks int he mail, one for my toddler seat and one for my infant seat. However, we have not cashed these 2 checks yet which i believe are from the settlement. If these have not been cashed can I still go after Orbit to get a full refund?

    ADMIN – Hi Chris,

    You accepted the settlement when you either signed up for it or failed to exclude yourself. I don’t think you can get a full refund anymore.

  9. Laura Madrigal says:

    Hi, I got two car seats, contacted Orbit Baby, and no response, the seats both were manufactured 2012, what’s next?
