    nb sucks

  • DEBBIE February 27, 2013

    When can we expect the check?

  • blacksheep February 28, 2013

    I wonder how long it will take for them to mail the settlements?

  • annette March 4, 2013

    Yep, that’s what I want to know, it’s March 4th, 2013. When will we see our check?

  • Roxanne March 6, 2013

    It usually takes about 3 to 4 months to check a check.
    I’ve been waiting since December for the LCD price fixing check

  • Kika March 11, 2013

    Received a reques for proof of purchase,.. Wondering if can send photos….

  • Mary March 11, 2013

    I also recieved a letter requesting reciepts, which I no longer have. Does this mean I get no check?

  • Tashauna March 11, 2013

    I received a letter requesting a receipt, I don’t have a receipt for these purchases. They must know that everybody does not keep receipts for previous purchases especially if they were made over a year ago.

  • GARTH ADCOCK March 11, 2013

    Got same letter-it said I asked for over $200 -I only submitted for 2 pair not 4 like they said-they are trying not to pay!

  • James B March 12, 2013

    I received that same letter also, these lawyers are ripping us off big time, who do they think have receipts this far back and if you did they still would have something to say. The print would not even be legible on the receipt. They’re just wasting our money on postage.

  • Tony March 14, 2013

    I received a letter requesting receipts. Who keeps receipts This lawyers are are greedy and always get most of the settlement money.Greedy SOB!!!

  • Pam March 14, 2013

    Looks like it was a form letter sent to ??Everyone??. Even though we purchased about 8 pairs, we knew we didn’t have receipts from that long ago, so we only claimed 3 pair…but still they want receipts. Wow, unbeliveable

  • cullen March 16, 2013

    this is a scam by the attorney’s, let’s file a class action against them, for depriving us of rightful claims when we make these companies rich; buying defective or overpriced products!

  • in the fine print March 17, 2013

    SETTLEMENT AGREEMENT
    III. SETTLEMENT RELIEF
    B. Claim Form Submission and Review:
    2. As further specified in the Settlement Claim Procedures and Claim Calculation Protocol, the Claim Form shall advise Class Members that the Class Action Settlement Administrator has the right to request verification of the purchase of Toning Shoes, including, but not limited to, receipt(s) or other documentation demonstrating purchase of any and all of the Toning Shoes during the Class Period. If the Class Member does not timely comply and/or is unable to produce documents to substantiate and/or verify the information on the Claim Form and the Claim is otherwise not approved, the Claim shall be disqualified.

  • in the fine print March 17, 2013

    plus the claim form said that if you had over $200 in purchases, then you had to have proof of purchase but it also said the if there were more in claim then funds available, the New Balance Class Action Settlement Administrator could request proof of purchase.

  • wanda March 20, 2013

    Hey guys this is not right we bought about 9 pair
    for our selfs an grandsons no more shoes for us after my grandson got hurt from them
    but it’s o.k. to take our money an now we can’t even get most of it back due to anything over 200.00 you have to have proof that is so wrong
    an ask for proof 1st of all we don’t do checks an credit cards even debit card, they was all payed for by cash at different times you do remember cash people do still carry it due to identity theft debit an credit cards can cause problems for you so you are asking for proof still after all this time has went by i am not a hoarder if i was maybe i could fine a receipt maybe a shoe box
    wrong to do folks like that we work hard for are money to but to all who gets a check enjoy it an i am glad you a least got one
    come on treat us right you want our business
    well we still do buy shoes but they want be new balance after this i want give them anymore of my hard worked money

  • the fine print March 21, 2013

    yes wanda but the claim form did have in bold print that if you had over 200 in claims, you had to have proof and if it was under 200 you might need to have proof if the amount in claims was more than the settlement amount. hard time are everywhere so more & more people are filing claims in these class actions, real claim or false claims, the claims administrators need proof. I mean seriously. people should send in claims and then proof as if it was being presented to a court of law to be hear for found in their favor. I mean, who goes to court expecting saying “because I said so and I am not lying” to prove and win their side? No one. And written documentation is what the Claims Administrator goes by, what the court requires as proof, not word-of-mouth.

  • Tray March 25, 2013

    I had purchased 2 pairs, but have NOT recieved a letter stating to show proof of purchase at this time. So hopefully its just a mix up and they will get it all squared up and everyone will get their checks cause I was really counting on this one. We will see, be positive and keep your fingers crossed : )

  • DougB March 26, 2013

    The members of this class action need to bring a class action against the attorneys that are handling this case. The original agreement was that no proof of purchase was required for under $200. Now they are disallowing any claim regardless of amount.

  • DougB March 26, 2013

    Almost ALL consumer class action settlements contain language that sets forth what type of proof of purchase is required. In this case is was $200 or more. If there is more claims then dollars set aside, the amount should be adjusted until each claim gets some reward. But in this case they are going to disallow any claim without proof and refuse to pay. There should be a class action against the attorneys that hare handling this case.

  • the fine print March 27, 2013

    DougB, go read the agreement AND the Claim form again as they clearly outline what you are asking and the need to submit proof is on the claim form, in bolded print. Sadly, I submitted under $200 but jjusssst squeaked by it and they want proof. I paid cash, don;t have proof anymore but I did look up the current prices and they were the ballpark I recalled paying. SO no biggy, more for you guys I suppose; who needs shoes anyhow when you can;t walk, right?

  • weezy April 9, 2013

    I GOT THAT SAME LETTER FROM SKETCHER. HOWEVER THEY DID THE ADJUSTMENT AND I STILL GOT MY SETTLEMENT. HOPEFULLY NEW BALANCE DOES THE SAME THING. IF NOT SHAME ON THE LAWERS. THEY WILL GET THERE PAY WE KNOW THAT MUCH.

  • barry April 11, 2013

    yep, here we go again!! no one seems to have any answers!! WOW has anyone received $$

  • Penny April 12, 2013

    I also received the letter asking for documentation….(which I only submitted 2 pair of purchased shoes). I just called the 866 # and the gentleman said that they had received my information (which I mailed 03/11/2013) and were processing my claim. Just give it a little time and they will get a reply/reimbursement to you.

  • right April 17, 2013

    sleazy ” weezy” The claims time has not even closed yet in Sketchers; NO ONE has been paid in that action yet so go lie elsewhere.

  • Judy April 17, 2013

    Hello, I never received a letter asking for proof of purchase. I just called and spoke to a very nice lady and she said checks are projected to go out by the end of this month (April). Maybe someone else can call and ask when they are planning to be mailed out and see if that person tells the same information.

  • Chris April 19, 2013

    Just called a spoke with a gentleman and he stated checks will be mailed out at the end of the month. We’re finally going to get some money coming in.

  • sandy May 1, 2013

    where are the checks? we’ve waited long enough.

  • AMY May 1, 2013

    I CALLED 2DAY,I SPOKE WITH CUSTOMER SRVS.AGENT.INQUIRING ABOUT HAVE THE CHECKS BEING MAILED YET .NOW THEY ARE AUDITING THEM WHEN THEY GET DONE WITH THAT THEY WOULD BE MAILED.

  • Michelle May 2, 2013

    It just seems to me that all of that should have been done already.

  • sean May 2, 2013

    Called today and the guy said,unless you received a verification in the mail and sent it back in with your receipts you will not be getting a check.

  • Lesley May 2, 2013

    Just called and spoke to a gentleman at 3:39 cst, he stated they are doing the final audit of all claims, but they have no date as of yet. Not sure what SEAN is talking about.

  • Tony May 2, 2013

    I received verification app over a month ago,i filled it out and sent in my receipt and still have heard or received payment..what give?

  • Renee May 3, 2013

    I called and was told that checks would be issued the end of April, and that they should be received within two weeks. She also stated if you received a verification letter and did not respond they would either deny you or reduce the amount of your claim. You will not be notified either way, you will get a check or you won’t according to the representative.

  • Judy May 4, 2013

    I never received a verification letter requesting a receipt. I thought if the claim was less than $200 you would not need to send then a receipt. I had purchased 4 pairs, myself, 2 daughters and my sister, but didn’t have receipts of course. Who keeps them once you have given the item to someone and it fits?!?! So my claim was under the $200 so hopefully I will see a little of it at least. Hope everyone else gets treated fairly with this. I will post when I receive a check, if I get one that is!

  • tray May 5, 2013

    I responded to post back n march n stated that i didn’t receive a letter still n its may n still waiting on a check so idk what the story is.

  • Chris May 6, 2013

    Wow, this is interesting…many of u in the feed are saying they have sent you letters asking for proof of purchase. I haven’t gotten anything like that, and it wasn’t mentioned when I called in this morning for an update. Still no word on when payment will be received, but I’m thinking perhaps we should file a class action against the attorneys, particularly in this suit. I notice that this firm in particular is making a fortune taking on class actions and winning them. Huge payments consisting of millions while the consumer gets pennies on the dollar or in some cases nothing at all. Another thing that could be a possibility when dealing with these greedy liars (lawyers) would be to write a formal complaint to the bar association in their area. Lawyers take a ethics oath and are suppose to follow it which rarely happens as you can see. I’m not sure if its even worth the energy expended to go that far, but than again, I suspect the lawyers don’t expect any of us consumers to do a damn thing but shut up sit back and wait on their call. Truth, we only have power to stop this foolishness if we do something about, take a stand. If not, do what the lawyers expect you to do stfu and wait till they tell you otherwise.

  • Will May 8, 2013

    Will, I’m with you! Do they really expect us to keep receipts for years, and they when we don’t have them, deny us what should be ours instead of theirs? Start the class action, I’m second in line

  • Will May 8, 2013

    Chris, your name was meant for the post from Will

  • Robin May 9, 2013

    When are checks going out?

  • Bk2Basics May 9, 2013

    called and spoke w/ Laurie and she advised me although checks were anticpated for the end of April, she has no idea when checks will be going out. When I asked for the status of my claim: she told me that no determination has been made…. to me, this matter is just out of control.. the fact that no determination has even been made seems as if check probably wouldnt go out for another few months..

  • Debra May 9, 2013

    According to the terms of the settlement agreement, they have 120 days from the final hearing date in order to get checks out. That day would be by June 25th 2013, so we probably will not see checks til around that time.

  • Debra May 9, 2013

    Correction……the date was 120 days from the final hearing date or claim deadline, whichever was later. Since the claim deadline was Feb 25, 2013, they have until June 25 2013 to have all payments disbursed.

  • Tony May 10, 2013

    Lawyer get $950,000 of the 2.3 mil,etc
    so there is over 3 million ppl in the class action,each claim would get $1-$8.
    not worth the time to cry about when will I receive a check.

  • Dawn May 19, 2013

    Any updates on payment?

  • jennell May 24, 2013

    i received a letter asking for proof I wrote them back and ask them too pleas honor my claim because I didn’t have proof I also spoke to a rep and was told that if we didn’t receive anything by next month (June) to please give them a call back You did not have to have proof if it was less than $200 but how will anybody know if the calculations didn’t show as like the sketches did show when you were going over $200 good luck checks should be on the way this week or the one following.

  • Judy May 25, 2013

    I called them yesterday and the rep had no idea when checks would be mailed out. How can they tell one person when they will be mailed and the other person they don’t know. I hope you are right. I only claimed 2 pairs since they said it would be for $40-$80 per pair, didn’t want to claim the 3rd in fear that they would actually be the max amount of $80 and then I would be over the $200 mark and no proof of purchase. Good luck to everyone.

  • Jill May 25, 2013

    I received a $12 check today,what a rip.
    i claimed 2 pairs $80 each and got $12.
    i will never buy NB again

  • Robin May 26, 2013

    Wow, Checks are only 12.00?

  • Judy May 27, 2013

    $12 what a joke, I am so disappointed! I haven’t received anything as if Saturday May 24

  • James May 27, 2013

    This can’t be true! I have not received anything as of 5/25/2013. We will all know by 5/28/13, if this is true. WTF is going on with this lawsuits.

  • Robin May 27, 2013

    I received nothing so far as of 5/25.

  • Judy May 28, 2013

    I called today 5/28 and they have no idea when checks will be mailed. The rep told me last update showing on his end was from January!! So this other person must be lying about receiving a $12 check!

  • Mark May 28, 2013

    I got a $18 check today 5/28,what happened to the $80?

  • Deb May 28, 2013

    I havent received anything as of 5/28
    I called and they told me most checks were already send out and if i didnt receive a letter in the mail a month or so ago,i wouldnt be getting one.

  • Brian May 28, 2013

    I also called and they said check have not been mailed yet so people are lying

  • James May 29, 2013

    All these people on here lying about receiving checks, please remove them. We’re only asking you all to tell the truth about receiving your checks. Thanks this is serious you have people calling and fussing with these people for nothing. Stay true to the website and others.

  • Angel May 29, 2013

    YES. I AGREE WITH JAME. TELL THE TRUTH ABOUT THE CHECKS. AND PLEASE LET ME KNOW WHEN THE CHECKS COME FOR REAL. THANKS.

  • Jill May 29, 2013

    I received a $12 check on the 25th,why lie about a $12 check?
    you can call them 5 times and they will tell you a different story everytime.
    I think ppl on here are a lil too serious about such a small check.
    odds are if you didnt fill out the app and mail in your receipt you wont get a chack anyway so relax.

  • stacy May 30, 2013

    trust me i call everyday to check on things and when i do call you have to give out very specific info about yourself. i called today and there has not been a release date thus far for checks. to put things in perspective, there is no mail date set and no checks have been mailed.

  • James May 30, 2013

    Jill it’s not the point of how much the check is that people are concerned about. It’s about people telling the truth. If the checks are a $1.00 it’s a dollar more you didn’t have. Honesty takes a person a long ways in life, but if you lie you have to tell several lies to cover that one. All we’re trying to do is help one another out when it comes to dealing with this type of business. I don’t think no one is trying to get rich off of these claims cause what’s for me or you we will get it sooner or later. Didn’t mean to hurt anyone’s feeling here.

  • Angel May 30, 2013

    AGAIN I AGREE WITH JAMES. THANKS JAMES FOR PUT IT IN THE RIGHT PERSPECTIVE.

  • J May 30, 2013

    Jill

    Why dont you just send a scanned copy or picture copy of the check to Scott at Topclassactions. He will take the image and share it with the rest of us so we can see. he will also blurr out your personal information.

  • Robin May 30, 2013

    HI, I called NB today. The gentleman on the phone stated to me that no checks have been sent out. He couldn’t give me a date as to when they might. Not sure what to believe.

  • CARMEN May 30, 2013

    I called today and was told all check have been mailed.
    who know?

  • An honest person May 30, 2013

    Would the real Slim Shady please stand up!?!? What is the deal with all these different messages?!? I called NB 10 different times today and got a different service rep each time. Each person told me the exact same thing, no checks have been mailed so far and there is no proposed date when the will be mailed out. That’s the whole truth, nothing but the truth, so help me God!!!!!

  • Honest in Florida May 30, 2013

    I called today and was told “NO CHECKS” had been mailed out and they don’t have a specific date as to when this will be done. Enough said, we just have to wait and see what the outcome will be. Thanks James for answering a respectful manner, we appreciate people like you and to all the rest who have been checking in as well, Big Thanks! Let’s just all wait and see what happens, maybe Scott will have some news for us.

  • Kay May 31, 2013

    I emailed today. Here’s the response:

    Thank you for your email.

    The Court entered its Final Judgment and its Final Order Approving Class Action Settlement on January 28, 2013. Class Counsel and Defense Counsel are currently conferring regarding the final claims validation. The claims validation process must be finalized before the distribution can commence.

    Sincerely,
    New Balance Class Action Settlement Administrator dz

  • Judy May 31, 2013

    Thanks everyone for the ‘Honest’ updates! The slim shady comment made laugh.

  • jennell June 2, 2013

    still no word on the checks the process has it own timing I also called yesterday band was that the counsel has to give the green like for the distribution before any checks can be mailed out good luck on this maybe the wait is over

  • Jack June 6, 2013

    the wait has been over,receive my $24 last week.

  • Hmmm June 6, 2013

    I don’t think Jack knows Jack ****!!!!

  • Mark June 6, 2013

    I think i can sort the confusion out.
    the refund checks for the NB class action lawsuit have all been mailed out in the USA.
    however the canada checks wont be mailed until november.
    so if you call tell them where u live.
    im in the usa and i got 1 a few weeks ago.
    thanks and i hope i helped.

  • Robin June 6, 2013

    I never received my check. I live in the USA. I was told last week no checks have been mailed? So not sure who to believe.

  • Judy June 7, 2013

    I’m so sick of this. Mark did you get the $12 or $18 check?? I also called today, they verify your mailing address so they know I don’t live in Canada. Customer service said NO checks have been mailed to ANYONE! If ANYONE DOES receive a check why don’t you fax a copy to TCA with your name and address covered up and then we will have 100% proof.

  • Honest in Florida June 7, 2013

    Called again today 6/7/13, NO CHECKS HAVE BEEN DISTRIBUTED TO ANYONE REGARDLESS OF STATE, COUNTRY OR YOUR WHERE ABOUTS MAYBE. THANK YOU & HAVE A BLESSED WEEKEND!

  • jennell June 8, 2013

    I called again today and the wait is that the claim administrator and the counsel have to get the green light before they can distribute the checks the administrator also said that it will probably be early next month because they are still processing the claims.

  • alley June 17, 2013

    Where’s the money?

  • Mark June 17, 2013

    already been mailed,but for some reason people on here refuse to beleive it.

  • Angel June 18, 2013

    HEY! MARK WHAT DAY WERETHE CHECKS MAIL.

  • bob June 18, 2013

    I heard possibly july 13

  • Michelle June 18, 2013

    I think Mark needs to get a life & do better things with his time rather than comment on here all the time. Especially when they are all lies.

  • Robin June 18, 2013

    Bob, I heard July 13 for Sketchers. Don’t know for NB.

  • Judy June 19, 2013

    I just read an update on this site that Skechers checks will be mailed by July 13, pretty sad that they are sending checks sooner than New Balance. Spoke to customer service again and still get the same answer, no one knows when checks will be mailed.

  • jennell June 21, 2013

    the checks are going to be mailed early next month or not before I was told by GCG a couple of days ago

  • Stephanie June 21, 2013

    This is the response I received to an email asking when checks will be mailed.

    “Thank you for your email.

    Your previous email was replied Wed 3/13/2013 1:57 PM to email address: ********@*****.com

  • big john June 21, 2013

    i heard we are not getting checks , instead we will all get a jar of petroleum jelly and a condom ……………….. just what i heard ……….

  • my my my.. June 22, 2013

    Exactly Big John, exactly!

  • my my my.. June 22, 2013

    My claim was under 200, they sent me a letter saying it was over and that I had to submit proof. As soon as I heard of suit and filed a claim, since it was under 200, I threw away the junk and i am not a hoarder… I mena really, who keeps receipts for cash purchases or bad items, especially after all the time since the claim period and I bought mine early on in the claim period. So if I get anything, i am sure it will be a notice of rejection, even though I explained this to GCG,,,, whatever. I feel like the new B in a prison when it comes to actualy getting an actually disbursement in these class actions… LMAO

  • jennell July 2, 2013

    spoke again today and they are just waiting to mail the checks

  • sheila July 2, 2013

    I heard people claiming 3 or more pairs have to send in proof like receipts. they are going threw them and when its all sorted out checks will be sent.

  • jennell July 5, 2013

    i sure will be glad when the checks are sent good luck to all who sent in claims

  • Brenda Grimes July 6, 2013

    The Court granted final approval to the Skechers class action settlement on May 13, 2013, which means checks will be mailed by July 13.

  • Sean July 6, 2013

    Brenda thats great,but this is new balance..SMH

    Yes, we all must be patient. It has worked its way through the legal system. Hopefully, I am guess by late summer you will be surprised by a check. Just go through every envelope and junk crap like those perforated cards that’s how they pay ,and not in a nice envelope. I just got 2 from 2008(5YRS to resolve) recently DeBeers and American Express in the shitty perforated card you know the tear off at the top then bottom check inside deal. Then it says you have 90 days to cash the pittance they give.lol. I totally forgot about it. that’s the game they play. So, it will come eventually~~ its aggravating when we all buy into the newest shoes to get into shape. I bought the new balance rock and tone and the sketchers crap shoe. It will all sort out ~~Just watch your mail closely.. You all take care ! Kim

    New Balance agreed to pay up to $3.75 million to settle claims that the company misrepresented the benefits of wearing Toning Shoes to consumers.

  • jennell July 10, 2013

    pleas hopefully soon it has been a well worth wait

  • Tashauna Gordon July 11, 2013

    Will someone please post when they receive their check please??

  • Kim July 13, 2013

    Hello all !!
    Here is the website that has the info about late summer.
    http://www.skecherssettlement.com/EN/faq
    And go to important topics.. Also, This administrator of this Garden City Group (GCG) is odd no phone number with a human on the other end . I tried directory assistance for a long distance number nothing came up..
    I will come back here and post if my check ever comes lol.. Nothing as of yet ..
    I only had one pair on my claim. My claim is valid and legit last time a human was there to answer the phone to verify.
    Take Care all.. I will report back here~~ if I get my check and hope you all will too. It will ease this as we are all in this debacle together. I know one thing is certain ~~I will never buy a new balance or sketchers product ever again.. duh!! ;)
    Happy weekend to you all !!
    Kim

  • Kim July 13, 2013

    I’m sorry people these 2 sneakers things had me put the wrong email address below. I apologized ..My post #100
    Okay when and if it comes ~~I still will say what the hell I got.
    Now , I frustrated see how easy it is .. Patience is a virtue not easily learned..
    You all take care .

  • bob July 13, 2013

    this must have been appealed because it was approved by the court on 01/28/2013 and it states that if their are no appeals the settlement must be paid to consumers within 120 days. 120 days have passed so guess what

  • my my my.. July 13, 2013

    I just looked at PACER and it shows no appeals filed in this matter. Only GCG and the attorney’s can say what is up and they are giving the general public the starving mushroom treatment…

  • Cathy July 15, 2013

    OK, I just called the number. The rep was able to find my claim, assure me it was valid, provide me with my claim number and assure me that no letters have been sent and no payments have been sent either. I’m not going to debate or argue with people who have said they received money on this, but I know I haven’t missed anything because she pulled me up in the system.
    I would suggest everyone try this instead of going by others or arguing needlessly.

  • Stephanie July 16, 2013

    My daughter got her check today for $140.00

  • Kim July 17, 2013

    I called today and the rep said the class and new balance lawyers are still looking at the claims.. No checks have been disbursed and I did get my sketchers check~~big whip. Its never the amount you thought so thus far no checks for new balance..I wish so I/ we all can put this to rest.. The rep assured me no date for disbursement. Its getting very aggravating like what’s the hold up.. Give me my money for my one pair. I will be more careful about what~ I spend my money on this was a major lesson. Waiting on this class action to finalized when it said originally April .Just sucks ,and New Balance sucks.. Patience Argghhh!!!

  • Tashauna Gordon July 18, 2013

    Just talked to a representative and she stated that they are in the final stages of validating the claims for this class action settlement and she also told me to check back next month if there are no updates on the website. No checks have been distributed as of today.

  • Kim July 18, 2013

    #104 Cathy!
    No one is arguing we all are discussing the issue. To say arguing is wrong..
    This is a free speech discussion board and maybe others have valid information.. So, with that it will over soon hopefully to get away from people like you…

  • Emily Randall July 21, 2013

    Whoopee, I received my claim from Sketchers that looked funny enough that the check cashing place wouldn’t cash so, deposited in the bank. New Balance claims I read were mailed out on July 13,2013. I haven’t received it.

  • Tesha July 22, 2013

    Some people on here are getting the sketchers checks confused with the new balance checks. Two different settlements. The New Balance checks have not been mailed. Some of the Sketchers checks have been mailed, although I haven’t received mine yet.

  • Cathy July 22, 2013

    KIM,
    I was referring to all the name calling from people saying some were just liars about getting a a NB check. That was my first post here EVER, so obviously I had not argued with anyone. I was simply stating that instead of arguing the validity of whether checks had been mailed,the best thing is to check for yourself since they are able to pull up individuals in the system.
    Of course it’s a free speech forum, and if people want to sit there tying arguments back and forth, name call and accuse they are free to do it. I was simply sharing information, which I am also free to do.
    So, before you try to single me out and start needless drama..check yourself and keep it pushing. If it doesn’t apply to you then mind your business and move on, please. OK? OK!

  • Angel July 23, 2013

    WELL ! I JUST WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHEN THE CHECKS ARE COMING. IF ANY ONE REALLY KNOWS PLEASE LET US KNOW. THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

  • Big B July 29, 2013

    CHECKS WILL COME ABOUT TWO WEEKS AFTER YOU GIVE UP HOPE….LOL.

  • alflo July 31, 2013

    I was told this week a date could be set soon for a ditribution date. don’t set a date don’t have a date

  • alflo July 31, 2013

    I was told this week a date could be set soon for a distribution date. don’t set a date don’t have a date

  • sean August 3, 2013

    If you ever participated in another class action,you will not receive and thing from NB.
    the FTC has made it so u can only get 1 check per year thur class actions.

  • jenni August 5, 2013

    well it is count down do you think that the claim administrator will process the claims now I don’t know just ignore the time passed and ignore all the sayings and I believe that there is a check in the mail

  • BIG JOHN August 6, 2013

    sean is sooooooooooooooooooooooo full of it …………..
    it dosnt matter how many class actions you have been in

  • andy August 6, 2013

    it is the class actions through the ftc that they think if you have one you should never have another one. like if you have a car accident who could ever have another one.the ftc sent statements out recently to people who claimed the walborn settlement calling them liars and threats against them.the ftc is supposed to help people not abuse them

  • Kim August 7, 2013

    Hello all still no word on the New Balance .hmmm.
    My family and I just got back from Australia on vacation for 2 weeks.
    It was awesome!!
    Well if the 100.00 comes lets stay positive.
    One word to Cathy ! Take a vacation and Im not trying to argue with you so dont be so mean..
    This is a silly hot mess we all got into by trusting the New Balance brand..So please calm down and trying to tear me up on here.lol .I wish this would just settle.
    People get on a vacation its good for your soul and maybe this will resolve in its own due time..You all take care…

  • andy August 7, 2013

    I think if everyone behaved like kim not only would this forum be better but the world in general would be a better place to live

  • Cathy L Rhodes August 8, 2013

    I called the administrator again this week and after they find me in the system they then read the script that no date has been set and that is the only update hey have.
    Kim, I wasn’t being mean by a long shot. I was actually referring to old posts of people arguing back and forth and calling each other liars. It’s senseless since we all have access to call the administrator and hear it form the horse’s mouth.
    Of course I need a vacation, who doesn’t? However, I have 6 children and am still raising 4 so we save money and make our own fun at home right now. Maybe one day we can all do that, but for now….what does it have to do with anything about the NB settlement? LOL…

  • Kim August 9, 2013

    I was just making conversation Cathy.We work hard and have the money to vacay. Thats all I was saying since, I had not been on here in 2 weeks.
    My hope is that it settles cause it cant stay tie up in claim validation by both sides counsel forever the judge will not allow that..
    You take care Cathy and I mean that sincerely..
    I am not returning back to post another item. So your reply to me will not be answered.
    You all take care ..This will settle when a date is established.duh!! Patience is a virtue not easily learned..

  • KB August 9, 2013

    Ugh, please stick to NB news!

  • give it a rest August 16, 2013

    My god people are going nuts on here..
    This is not ever going to settle in our lifetime and if it does good luck with the 20.00 they give pro rata ..lmao

  • BIG JOHN August 18, 2013

    NO ONE IS GOING TO GET A CHECK!!!! ITS ALL GOING TO BE DONATED TO HELP FUND OBAMA CARE …..JUST SAYING

  • #11 lturn August 18, 2013

    FTC not involved. GCG says checks will be mailed the month of August.

  • give it a rest August 21, 2013

    Well One can hope we get the check cause GCG is not saying anything except deliberations between counsel.
    They are the most unhelpful 3rd party entity ever.Calling them is the biggest headache ever .They read a script and dont update thier site.Total waste of time .watch your mailbox and hope they do what right by the consumer..I feel as you all do taking on a ride by new balance.I want off this roller coaster ride with them it sucks..
    Just cut the checks to the claimants and call it a day..

  • Steve August 22, 2013

    They updated their site – it says checks were mailed out August 21, 2013 and to allow 5-7 business days.

  • give it a rest August 22, 2013

    Thank you Steve for the heads up.I didnt notice that.At last this nightmare ends a check woo who..I wonder how much ??.
    This has been so stressful on all affected..i know that GCG lied to everyone that called reading that damn script instead of relaying the honest truth.Geesh!!
    Sincerely .me

  • Upset In Georgia August 22, 2013

    The checks are $83.27.

  • andy August 22, 2013

    87.23 for 1 or 2 pair

  • Sandy Mae August 23, 2013

    Did anyone receive a payment for their purchases of New Balance and Skechers? My daughter said she did not receive a Skechers check because she also filed a claim for Reebok and that anyone who filed for 2 or more toning shoe suits will only be paid for one because they are being handled by the same administrator. Just wondering if this is true. I honestly bought 1 pair from each brand and will sue the administrator for discriminating against my valid claim lol

  • give it a rest August 23, 2013

    Check came and it was only 43.63 woo who so what .I claimed only one pair..
    I thought it be only 20.00. for real.
    You all will be disgusted we have been ripped off again $100.00 refund my ass. New balance and the attorney’s sucked up all the money ..
    Pretty much disgusted .. I guess if you have 2 shoes u got a ck coming for 87.26… big whip..Be prepared for a big let down in that they did not honor what they swaid they would do in giving us100.00.. we got pro rata ~~New balance sucks and this wait for 43.63 blows!!!

    I just called the 800 number my check was mailed in the amount of $87.27. I didn’t receive a skechers check so there is hope people.

  • kim August 23, 2013

    Getting 43.63 for one pair is not hope nor is 87.00.pure rip off. Tell what quality shoe you can buy for 43.00.
    Too many people who didnt buy the shoes reduced the real amount ..TRUTH…
    What can a 43.ck or 87 buy nothing..not even 100. goes far.lol ..The joke and wait has been on us.I knew most unfortunately it would be low balled ..Thank God I have money in the bank and this will not break me like some other people most regrettably who needed that 100.00 .Its very sad..
    Okay signing off Take care .this has not been fun.Life goes on and its beautiful.!!!!

  • andy August 23, 2013

    I notice in most class actions they go pro rata and people get less than they were supposed to get. does that mean if not many people signed up we would get more than we were supposed to get hhmmmmmmm

  • Cathy L Rhodes August 24, 2013

    Got my check today in Arkansas for $87.27, it was mailed on the 21st. Not what I paid for my pairs, but I’m blessed to get something.
    Just an FYI, I actually did get a check in the Sketchers settlement as well, since I had bought those, too. I did not file claim in the Reebok one because I didn’t purchase any of those. I did not have to send in proof of purchase for either one.
    So, it’s NOT true that you can only get one or the other, at least not in my case. I hope everyone gets their checks soon so we can all put this behind us.

    No checks yet. they asked proof of receipt in Feb 2013.We sent it. Still claim is rejected .They just says can not validate. Claim did not need receipts for purchases of 2 pairs to begin with.This is a classic case of Discrimination and abuse .Garden city Group is famous for this. God please get some attorney and take this administrator company to court and fix their upper management behind bars. GCG needs to go Guantanamo
