Target Baby Wipes Part Of Class-Action Settlement

If you’ve purchased baby wipes from Target, listen up. You may be entitled to a Target gift card and/or free product coupons as a result of a class action lawsuit.

The Up & Up Wipes Class Action Settlement claims that certain Up & Up flushable toddler wipes manufactured by Nice-Pak and sold at Target were, in fact, not flushable. Both the manufacturer and Target deny the claims, but have agreed to settle the case. That means if you purchased the wipes, you could be eligible to get some of your money back.

To qualify for your share, the wipes must have been purchased between April 18, 2010 and Oct. 31, 2014. You do not have to have proof of purchase, but you can get more from the settlement if you do.

If you file a claim without proof of purchase, you can either choose to receive a gift for no more than 20 units ($1.35 per pack, or $27) or up to 20 coupons for free Up & Up wipes. With a proof of purchase, you can receive a gift card for $1.35 per unit, without limiting that number to 20. If you choose coupons and have a proof of purchase, you’ll get 20 coupons for the first 20 purchases, and then a $1.35 gift card for each additional purchase.

Proof of purchase, in this case, means an itemized retail sales receipt showing, at a minimum, the purchase of Up & Up flushable toddler wipes, the purchase price and the date and place of the purchase.

If you think you qualify, you will need to file a claim. You can do so online or by mail, but it must be submitted no later than Sept. 7. If you have questions, just visit the settlement website or call the settlement administrator at 1-888-878-1989.


Did you purchase any Up & Up flushable toddler wipes between April 18, 2010 and Oct. 31, 2014?
