(Newser) – That'll buy a whole lot of Snuggies. ABC News reports Allstar Marketing Group—which makes the Snuggie, the Magic Mesh Door, and more—will pay back its customers $7.2 million after the FTC accused it of tricking them with its advertised buy-one-get-one-free deal. Apparently that deal, which Allstar used for multiple products, made no mention of processing and handling fees customers would also be responsible for. The FTC said the ordering process was confusing and customers ended up paying more than they expected, according to NJ.com. Refunds will be sent to over 218,000 Allstar customers. The average refund amount is $33.14. Allstar agreed to the settlement in 2015, but checks are being mailed this week. (Read more Snuggie stories.)
