|Greetings to all!
I am Cathy's partner at BringGoodThingsToLife.org. In browsing the forums, there seems to be the mistaken assumption that you must live in the state of Florida to participate in the General Electric Defective Refrigerator Class Action Settlement. I cannot stress strongly enough to everyone:
There are no geographic limitations!
Residents of any US state who own (or previously owned) one of the defective refrigerators listed in the settlement and meet the criteria (moisture-related repairs and/or problems), is entitled to benefits. This is not your 'business as usual class action settlement' where the attorneys get million$ and the plaintiffs get coupons. Benefits include:
General Electric is making a concerted effort to limit this information (no big surprise). But we are making a greater effort to beat them at their game. Our new website should be up no later than this weekend (7/8/06). But our 'old' site will run until we have the bugs worked out. You will find information there that will answer just about any question you might have about the Settlement: what to do, when, etc. You can even download claim forms, copies of the Settlement Agreement, etc. You can contact us if you have questions.
- reimbursement of previous moisture-related repair bills
- free repair of current moisture-related problems
- free refrigerator replacement if you have already had 3 or more moisture-related repairs
- reimbursement for your purchase of a replacement refrigerator
- free 1 year (additional) warranty or 1 year extension of an extended warranty
Finally, I cannot thank Samurai, Pegi, and Jedi enough for all their help in the last year. ApplianceGuru.com is in the top 25 referring sites to our website after Google, MSN, Yahoo, etc. Your advice to the many people who have been stuck with these turkeys, gouged by "GE Customer Care" (now there's an oxymoron) is awesome.
