  38. Troy Hisel says:

    You wanna lubricate your joints? Drink water! These and any supplements DO NOT do anything. There all misleading in attempt to become rich off of us sheeple. WAKE UP!

  39. Carrol Pace says:

    It obviously didn’t help me, because I am recovering from total knee replacement. I’m pretty sure we will not get anything from this settlement. I was way over the 8 bottle limit. Who keeps receipts this long?

  56. Shelby says:

    • vegasdrummer says:

  57. michael head says:

  58. Shelby says:

    has anyone heard anything about checks for this settlement????

  59. jeff says:

    I JUST got an email saying I am trying to claim more than 8 bottles. I did not claim more than 8. I was in another class action suit. they did the same thing. rejected my claim. what a scam I going to contact the court who is handling this? Is there anyone else that is getting the same run around. we can start our own class action against this law firm.

    • sheba says:

      yep i got the same email and i know i did not put more than eight damn bottles. ITS COOL THO THE 96 BUCKS WILL DO ME JUST FINE…

  60. Vivian says:

    I got an email yesterday saying that I said on my claim form that I said I had receipts for the products, and that I had not mailed them. Well, I did not say I had the receipts still. I am claiming without receipts. Anyone get a similar email? Do you think that they ate trying to scam me so I won’t get some type of compensation? Is there a way to double check what I sent in on my claim form?

  61. Susan says:

    I got the same email. The only thing I thought was maybe I sent in 2 claims instead of one by mistake. They are only going to honor 1 claim not two. You can claim up to 8 bottles without proof of purchase. I hope this is the case. I have until the 24th of April to reply.

  62. Sherrie says:

    Yup had the same thing happen here. I did not say I had reciepts either. I have no idea what the heck this is about so I emailed them. Its almost as bad as what there all saying about the comscore settlement. Heard they denied over 10,0000 people some had claim numbers and some did not. Lost or saved on there old computers that are long since gone. Talk about terrible.

  63. Irene says:

    I submitted my claim forms before deadline indicating that I DID NOT have proof or purchase and I received a letter in the mail advising me that I need to submit my proof or purchase.

  64. Nancy says:

    They did the same to me but I emailed them back and told them again I had 8 but they only sent me 25.00. I do know a lady really got 96.00 for hers without receipt

  65. shelby says:

    Same here when I contacted them they said no date for check distribution

  66. mari says:

    When did anyone received a refund. Cause recording states processing. I have not got an emailed or mailed at all. I fill claim long time. As soon as it was available. Please anyone know anything or was it a scam. It’s upsetting I took this for many years. Had knee surgery,foot surgery did not work. Now I need knee replacement sucks…need status…

  67. Constance Redo says:

    been buying this product from Walmart, dollar general, wal-greens and other places. i was told it would help my legs with my arthritis. Bought over 5 big bottles.

  68. maritza says:

    any word on checks, I have not received an email ot mail, no check, I file along time ago, it was approved, ehat happened, I now need knee repelacement also, sucks, and a menicus tear in the other knee, try everything to build cartilidge.

  69. james says:

    Emails from Admin: ” Claims will be paid when and if we choose, and at our discretion, no claims will be paid if it proves to be too much burden on our systems”. So there it is, no one is going to receive payments. Both Plantiff Consuel and the courts have been informed of this, so this may getting to another Claims Admin.

  70. L.C. says:

    Bouth this product every month for a year from CVS for pain and didn’t work at all. Have a pain specialist now.

  71. heather grantt says:

    this product is a waste of time and a waste of money I was too just not using it

  72. MaxTape says:

    I am so angry. I want my money back because of all the suffering I’ve gone through with this product.

  73. Ron says:

    By this news I assume this case is over. Long URL but worth reading. This is old news and the site should have posted it but since they lost they moved on.

  74. Ron says:

    My comment above seems to be for another glucosamine suite which can be found on the expired list. Sorry about the confusion.

  75. Ron says:

    I received a check today.

  76. Amy says:

    I received a check for $3.69 for one bottle without a receipt–my “pro rata share” was far less than the $12 indicated in the settlement offer. Must be there were a lot of people like me who do not keep receipts for items purchased for a possible class action lawsuit years from now! Check is dated 9/15/2015, and it says Void after 60 days.

  77. skeeter says:

    checks are out for over 600.

  78. Hope says:

    What’s the status of this? I see people received checks for a settlement similar to this with the name glucosamine is this the same one

    ADMIN – Hi Hope,
