Refund checks to be sent to Snuggie customers”

If you bought a Snuggie or other products hawked on television over the past two decades, you might receive money soon.

The company behind the blanket with sleeves agreed to pay over $7.2 million to people who bought the product.

The Federal Trade Commission alleged that Allstar used misleading advertising since 1999.

The settlement doesn't only apply to Snuggies, and compensates some customers of the Perfect Bacon Bowl, Magic Mesh Door, Perfect Brownie Pan, Cat's Meow and Roto Punch products.

"While the products varied, Allstar's pitch often was the same-a "buy-one-get-one-free" offer that did not disclose all the costs", the FTC said in a statement.

The average refund to customers was about $33, Today reported.

Allstar also allegedly attempted to charge customers more by using automated answering systems that employed confusing tactics.

The company administering refunds, Analytics, will begin mailing refund checks this week. They must be cashed within 60 days or they will become void. Consumers who have questions should call the FTC 1-877-982-1294.
