Did you buy a CRT TV or monitor between 1995 and 2007? Well, then you’re entitled to at least $20 from a Canadian CRT class action lawsuit. What is a CRT monitor, you ask? Well, my friends, before fancy flat screens, LCDs and LEDs, there were CRTs. That’s right, if you ever used a big bulky cube-like monitor to load up Windows 98 before tinkering around with Minesweeper, you are entitled to at least 20 big ones.

If you were real lucky, you also hooked up your N64 to one of these 26″ televisions and annihilated the competition in Mario Kart. But your winning didn’t stop there. Oh no. Because the Defendants (that’s Panisonic, Toshiba, Hitachi, LG Electronics, Philips, Samsung Electronics, to name a few) allegedly “unlawfully conspired to fix prices for CRTs and CRT Products.” Yup, you were overcharged for that TV, dear reader, and now you can claim back your hard earned cash.

How, you ask? According to the CRT class action website, “You are a ‘Settlement Class Member’ and eligible to receive a payment if you live in Canada and you purchased CRTs, CRT televisions and/or CRT computer monitors (regardless of the manufacturer or brand) in Canada between March 1995 and November 2007.” Is that you? If you’re reading this right now, chances are, it is.

Filing a claim is absolutely free, and you don’t even need a receipt to get the estimated minimum payout of $20. Just fill out the form by March 1st, provide your name, address and email. For those who don’t have their receipts, you can claim up to two items, per person per household. For anyone else that went ham and filled their homes with CRT monitors, you’ll need that proof of purchase. All you have to do next is wait a year for that sweet E-transfer to come in. It’s breadgate all over again.

In other words, if you want your free cash that you’re entitled to because electronics companies got greedy, go here.
