Attorney general channels Dell dude, says your $250 refund expires soon

The headline on state Attorney General Rob McKenna’s latest news release says it all:

“Dude, don’t wait on that Dell refund!”

McKenna is reminding people who bought a Dell in the past four years that they may be eligible for a cash refund if they had problems with financing, technical support, warranty repairs or cashing in rebates.

Dell is paying $1.5 billion under a January settlement with Washington and 33 other states, but so far only 42 Washingtonians have filed valid claims.

The state’s received claims totaling $10,680 and paid out an average of $250 per consumer, with accepted claims ranging from $30 to $848, the release said.

But hurry. Completed forms are due by April 13. Details are at the AG’s Web site, including this FAQ. Forms may also be requested by calling 1-800-551-4636 between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m.
