Dollars and Sense (July 28th)

If you own a Nike+ fuel band, you’re eligible to file a claim and get either a $25 gift card or a $15 check. 
 
The refund is part of a class action settlement.
 
The lawsuit against both Nike and Apple alleged that they made false claims about the fitness tracker's ability to track steps, calories and even NikeFuel points and that the companies didn't honor their product's warranty.
 
The companies deny the claims but agreed to the class action settlement to avoid expensive and lengthy litigation.
 
Anyone in the United States who purchased a fuelband between January 2012 and June 2015 is eligible. 
 
January 4th, 2016 is the deadline to file a claim at: https://gilardigateway.com/nikefuelbandsettlement/claimant
