Keurig Class Settlement

Class lawsuit link

A proposed settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit about the labeling and advertising of Keurig K Cup single serving coffee pods labeled as recyclable. The lawsuit alleges that the packaging and advertising for these products misled consumers to believe that the Products were widely recyclable. Keurig denies all allegations and is entering into this Settlement to avoid burdensome and costly litigation.

Who Is Eligible?

You are a member of the Class if you purchased K Cup single serving coffee pods labeled as recyclable in the United States for personal, family or household purposes during the time period from June 8, 2016, through August 8, 2022.

How Much?

  • Without Proof of Purchase – $5 cash payment per Household
  • With Proof of Purchase – $36 Maximum Payment; you are eligible to receive $3.50 per 100 pods purchased. The maximum Cash Payment is $36 per Household and the minimum total payment is $6 if you have proof of purchase for your purchases.

Important Dates

  • June 8, 2016 through August 8, 2022 are the dates the lawsuit covers
  • January 9, 2023 – final date to submit a claim

Our Verdict

A lot of people should be eligible for the easy $5/household payment and some people might still have the receipts (or online order where you can get the receipt now) and be eligible for up to $36/person.

Usually that site is reliable


I’ve done these things multiple times in the past and the vast majority of the time I never received payments even though I’ve qualified. Not worth the effort anymore. But that’s just my experience.
Regardless, thanks for the heads up.

Weird payout. If you have 10 x 100, that’s $35 so need to have 11 x 100 to hit the max.

But I buy all my K-cups online so easy to locate receipts. Thanks for the heads up on the class action.


I’m wondering if they were labeling them as ‘recyclable’ prior to the 2020 change to polypropylene or not. Since 2020 they’ve been recyclable, however most polypropylene in the US isn’t actually recycled even though it could be. Interesting lawsuit.


Thanks DOC, submitted the maximum.


Wayne Did you have a single receipt or multiple? I’ve got dozens of receipts but will whittle it down to the ones with the most quantity if there’s a limit. TIA


Celia I did multiple with the largest possible first. I did max it out to $36. I had 11 receipts.

Same. Have purchased easily more than 1000 since 2017. Took about 20 minutes to prepare PDFs and navigate website.
