8. WHAT DOES THE SETTLEMENT PROVIDE?


The Settlement, if it is approved and becomes final, will provide cash payments or Monsterproducts.com online store credit at your option. The settlement benefit to which you are entitled depends on which type of Monster HDMI Cable you purchased and whether you can provide an acceptable form of proof of purchase. This Settlement Website sets forth all of your options, but in short, the benefit options are:

Option A (Monetary Payment):

  • $10 for each Monster Gold HDMI Cable purchased;
  • $10 for each Monster HDMI cable purchased with an advertised bandwidth exceeding 10.2 Gbps and that is not a Monster Gold, Platinum or Black Platinum model cable;
  • $13 for each Monster Platinum HDMI Cable purchased;
  • $18 for each Monster Black Platinum HDMI Cable purchased.

Proof of purchase required: see below for acceptable forms of proof of purchase.

Option B (Monetary Payment and Replacement Cable):

  • $15 for each Monster Gold HDMI Cable purchased;
  • $15 for each Monster HDMI cable purchased with an advertised bandwidth exceeding 10.2 Gbps and that is not a Monster Gold, Platinum or Black Platinum model cable;
  • $25 for each Monster Platinum HDMI Cable purchased;
  • $35 for each Monster Black Platinum HDMI Cable purchased.

Proof of purchase required: You must mail your existing HDMI cable to the Settlement Administrator. You will receive a 10.2 Gbps cable as well as postage reimbursement up to $5.00.

Option C (Monster Online Store Credit):

  • $20 credit on Monsterproducts.com for each Monster Gold HDMI Cable purchased;
  • $20 credit on Monsterproducts.com for each Monster HDMI cable purchased with an advertised bandwidth exceeding 10.2 Gbps and that is not a Monster Gold, Platinum or Black Platinum model cable;
  • $25 credit on Monsterproducts.com for each Monster Platinum HDMI cable purchased;
  • $30 credit on Monsterproducts.com for each Monster Black Platinum HDMI Cable purchased.

Proof of purchase: None required if you submit only one claim under this Option. See below for acceptable forms of proof of purchase.

To be eligible to receive a benefit, you must include a statement on your Claim Form that the information you are submitting is true and correct to the best of your knowledge. There is no limit on the number of claims you can submit under Options A or B. You may submit only one claim for credit under Option C without proof of purchase. Acceptable forms of proof of purchase for Options A and C are: a receipt, credit card statement showing your cable purchase, a photograph of your HDMI Cable box, or a photograph of an end of your HDMI Cable showing the Monster logo. Your photograph should be in color and must show a side view of the end of the cable where the emblem is. An example of the end of a Monster cable is posted here. If you submit a photograph of the end of your cable and it is unclear from the photograph whether the cable is a Monster cable with an advertised bandwidth exceeding 10.2 Gbps, then the Settlement Administrator may contact you for further information.
