If you live in Michigan and regularly shop at Walmart for groceries, it's possible that they have been overcharging you for certain items.

I'm admittedly not much of a Walmart shopper. Not that they don't have great deals, there just isn't one conveniently located for me in West Michigan. But, I know plenty of people make their way to "Wally World" for their family's grocery needs.

Walmart is a great option for many folks when it comes to both options and savings, but it turns out that the retailer may have been overcharging for certain items.

The good news is that people know about this now, and Walmart could owe shoppers in West Michigan a lot of money.

Who is Eligible for the Walmart Settlement?

Folks who shopped at Walmart between October 18, 2019, and January 19, 2024, are potentially eligible for the refund. But, only if they purchased specific items.

Which Items at Walmart Were Overpriced?

It appears that most of the items in question were either bagged citrus items or meat products. Folks were overcharged because those items were marked at a certain price but rang up at a different price because they were not weighed properly.


The citrus items in question include oranges, grapefruit, and tangerines. You can see a full list along with their UPC codes here.

The meat items in question include, well, a lot of things. Beef, chicken, pork, turkey, miscellaneous other meats and seafood products. The full list of meat items that are included along with their UPC codes are listed here. (It's a lengthy list, taking up nearly 47 pages...)

How to Get Your Money From the Walmart Overcharging Lawsuit/Claim

If you think that you have purchased any of the items linked above, you can file a claim here. If you are a person who keeps their receipts, I have good news - you can file a claim to get up to $500 back. If you don't have your receipts, that's okay, too. People without receipts are still eligible for smaller payouts from the $45 million class-action settlement.
