If you are a current or former paying member of Angie’s List, Inc., you may get a payment or benefit from a proposed Class Action Settlement.

A proposed settlement has been reached with Angie’s List, Inc. (“Angie’s List”) in connection with three putative class action lawsuits focusing on Angie’s List’s acceptance of advertising payments from service providers, and whether those payments affect service providers’ letter-grade ratings, reviews, and place in search-result rankings.

Angie’s List denies plaintiffs’ claims, including denying that advertising revenue can affect ratings or the content of reviews in any way and asserting that it discloses that it received revenue from certain service providers who are rated highly by members and further discloses that such revenue can affect the order of search-result rankings under certain settings.

Angie’s List has agreed to settle the lawsuits for a payment of $1,400,000 to the Settlement Class and other relief. Those included in the Settlement Class can submit a Claim for an estimated payment of $5.00 and/or $10.00, or up to four months of free membership to Angie’s List, depending on their period of membership. The actual amount to be paid for Claims for a cash payment will depend on the number of timely and valid Claims for cash submitted. These benefits and how you can obtain them are explained in more detail in the Frequently Asked Questions.

You may be included in this settlement if you paid to join Angie’s List or renew an Angie’s List membership between March 11, 2009 and July 12, 2016.
