    Lmaoo most ridiculous lawsuit ive EVER seen. Good ol Mericanz will do anything they can to make some money off these companies lol

    ADMIN – Hi Courtney,

    This is actually a pretty valid claim. False advertising.

  2. KimSearfus says:

    It is a legit claim U always want my yard to be even….

  3. Bebe Wrigg says:

    I’ve purchased quite a lot of this product during the specified period that ended 9/30/14, but, did not retain the receipts. In the claim filing it states 2 ways to submit; with a receipt or without. However, the filing cannot be submitted without downloading a document showing a unit price. What can be used to satisfy this requirement so that the claim is not disqualified? Thank you.

    ADMIN – Hi Bebe,

    Contact the class action administrator directly.

  4. Patsy Winzey says:

    We bought this product religiously for yard, but did not retain the receipts

    ADMIN – Hi Patsy,

  5. Joshua says:

    We used this product to do over a half an acre and ended up having to go get a whole different seed, because it barel even grew. It was good we didn’t just depend on this product, because we would have been waiting for a long time.

  6. Karen Davis says:

    We bought it and it did not satisfy our needs

  7. Travis Oldham says:

    I bought this product several times.ot did not work.

  8. Corrine West says:

    We bought several bags and had to buy another priduct, because this did not hold up to its claim.

    ADMIN – Hi Corrine,

  9. Cheryl sackett says:

    Did not work

  10. Chrm says:

    What a joke! I’m in Illinois so can’t join in on claim. The seeds did not sprout. What a waste of money and time and effort. It’s not anything WE did; the other grass seed we bought and spread sprouted and took in a little over a week! No justice for me in this claim.

  11. David says:

    Should expand this to Colorado they sell it here all the time and it never grows

    ADMIN – Hi David,

    Contact a class action attorney in your area if you feel there is an opportunity to bring something up on behalf of the people in Colorado.

  14. Hunter Riley says:

    Got this product last month, August, and used it once. It marked my grass and killed most of the area I applied it. I do not have the receipts, but would like to file a claim if I may.

    ADMIN – Hi Hunter,

    This product does not kill grass. Furthermore your dates don’t qualify

    from January 1, 2009 through September 30, 2014

  15. Ron Bartels says:

    How come just two States? That seed failed in our yard also and we purchased two bags from F.L. Davis Hardware, an ACE Hardware Distributor. I thought we did something wrong but I guess it was the seed or the directions. Sue for recovery in the other States as well.

    ADMIN – Hi Ron,

    Because different states have different consumer protection laws.

    • Dimpho says:

      I purchased this once but not sure it has professional service

      ADMIN – Hi Dimpho,

      This is no a service, this is a product.

    I purchased and used this product,however I have not retained my proof of purchase

    ADMIN – Hi R,

    There is an option to file without POP but you don’t get as much. Also note that this is not a nationwide settlement.
