You're eligible to get $20 even if you don't have proof that you bought these electronics.
With the lithium-ion battery class action in Canada right now, you can submit a claim until December 17, 2021, to get money and the process is so simple.
Anyone in Canada who bought lithium-ion battery products or lithium-ion batteries between January 1, 2000, and January 1, 2012, is eligible to get part of the settlement from the class action.
To make a claim, you first have to select whether you received a Claim ID from the Claims Administrator or didn't receive it. There's an example of what the Claim ID looks like so you can be sure if you have it or not.
If you received it, you log in with that ID and PIN. If you didn't, you have to select whether you're claiming the minimum payment of $20 (which requires no proof of purchase) or more than that (which requires you to have proof).
Proof of purchase can be invoices, receipts, delivery slips and purchase records.
You have to provide your contact information, the product purchase information and proof of purchase for the bigger claim and just your contact information for the $20 claim.
In either case, you have to select whether you want to receive the money by e-transfer or by cheque before submitting the claim.
Lithium-ion battery products are laptops, notebook computers, tablets, e-book readers, MP3 players, personal digital assistants, handheld GPS, handheld video players, cellphones and smartphones. Replacement batteries for any of those are also included.
However, cell phones and smartphones that were sold as part of a service contract aren't part of this class action.
