Shop for groceries at Walmart? You may be due some cash.

If you have receipts, you could claim up to $500.

SAN ANTONIO – If you bought groceries at Walmart in the past several years, you may be entitled to some cash. It’s part of a $45 million class-action lawsuit settlement.

The lawsuit claimed Walmart overcharged customers for certain weighted goods such as packaged meats and bagged citrus fruits.

For example, evidence in the court records showed that a pork tenderloin was marked in the store at $3.92 per pound, but the packaging was $4.36 per pound.

Another example was a bag of oranges. The store signage and product barcode sticker said $7.98 per pound. But, the bag contained only five pounds of oranges.

Walmart has denied any wrongdoing, but settled the case.

As a result, customers who shopped at Walmart stores between October 18, 2018 and January 19, 2024 and purchased any of a long list of weighted meats, poultry or seafood or bags of oranges, grapefruit or tangerines, are eligible to file a claim.

The deadline to file a claim is June 5. You can file a claim here.

Customers who have proof of purchase may receive up to $500. Those without proof will receive much less, up to $25.

The court will hold a hearing for final approval on June 12. If approved, the claims could be processed in several months.
