(Newser) – If you purchased even a single can of Red Bull in the last 12 years, you could get $10 in cash or two free products. But it's not exactly because the energy drink giant is feeling generous: The offer is part of a $13 million settlement over false advertising claims, the Consumerist reports. After all, experts point out Red Bull doesn't actually "give you wings" and plaintiffs argued the same in a lawsuit, which Red Bull has now settled "to avoid the cost and distraction of litigation." However, Red Bull "denies any and all wrongdoing or liability." Don't have a receipt? The Consumerist notes that you simply need to fill out a claim form to grab your stake in the payout.
