      It’s $2 ,, No one cares. By filling that out and putting your name on it, you are just showing everyone how petty and stupid you really are.

      TWO DOLLARS— For the love of all that is good,, it’s $2!!

      Don’t ever tell anybody anything. If you do, you start missing everybody

      • Heidi says:

        Wow really? So thousands of people should let it go because “it’s only two dollars?” If a multi-million dollar company did something wrong THEY should pay for it!! I don’t care if it’s .50 cents I will be petty just because I can. Why should we let their money add up by not claiming what’s ours?

      • Hector says:

        That’s the exact mentality the lawyers love! For every one person that doesn’t claim $2.00, the lawyers keep that money. If at the most 50,000 people don’t file a claim, that lawyer gets $100,000. So yeah, keep thinking that way!

    2 dollars what a joke

  3. Ian says:

    $2 per product adds up quick.

  4. Allen Payne says:

    2 ain’t worth the trouble of filling out that long application you keep it

  5. Andrew says:

    I feel that the products worked so they shouldn’t be punished too much because of a mislabel. $2 is about right.

  6. Michelle says:

    If you purchase anything and it is faulty in any way, it doesn’t matter if it is $2 or $2,000. It is the our way of telling the makers they may have to pay large amounts if they make a shoddy product.

    Grow up and do the right thing if you made the purchase – file the claim.

    In today’s time, it takes no time to deposit a check. Click, click on your cell and your $2.00 is deposited. Treat you and your co-worker to a $.99 drink from McD.
