A class action lawsuit against GNC has been settled in Pennsylvania after GNC’s website allegedly “advertised fake markdowns online to trick consumers into thinking the items were on ‘sale.'” A settlement for $6 million is now open.
If you bought from GNC between Jan. 1, 2012 and Sept. 9, 2019, you are eligible to get compensated:
Get $5 Cash Back, a $15 Voucher, and Possibly a $30 Coupon for a $100 Purchase
The potential rewards are as follow:
Single Purchaser (No proof of purchase required)
Get $5 Cash or a $15 GNC Voucher if you made a single purchase (no proof of purchase required!)
Multiple Purchaser (Proof of purchase required)
Per the lawyer, you can get $10 cash, $5 cash and a $15 GNC voucher, or a $30 GNC voucher if you made multiple (5+) purchases or spent over $100 in a single purchase (proof of purchase required). Note that this isn’t properly reflected on the claims form page linked below.

This came from the case Carter, et al. v. General Nutrition Centers Inc., et al., Case No. 2:16-cv-00633-MRH, in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania. Of note, one of the lawyers listed is Nick Suciu, who worked on several of the amino acid spiking lawsuits over the past five years.

If you disagree to the terms above and feel that GNC’s “allegedly fake sales deceived consumers into believing items were being offered at a discounted price” should warrant a different reward, a final hearing will be on Dec. 19, 2019.
