I’ve heard from a lot of people that they think this year’s cold and flu season is the worst in a long while. People seem to be getting sick all over the place, and many are looking for a quick fix that can get them back healthy as soon as possible.

One of the most popular products for alleviating symptoms of cold and flu is Airborne, an effervescent product invented by a grade school teacher. Lots of my friends (and some other Shoeboxers) swear by it, and start taking it right when they start getting sick, as per the directions.

Well, as we all know, the cold and flu are tough beasts to handle, and some question the effectiveness of Airborne. A few of these people filed a class-action law suit against the company. Airborne agreed to pay $23.3 million to settle the case.

So why am I talking about this on the Shoeblog? Well, as it turns out, Airborne is offering refunds for any Airborne that customers have ever bought… if you have a receipt. Shoeboxed users rejoice! All those receipts you’ve been saving may come in handy! This is just a friendly reminder of the usefulness that comes with having all your receipts at your fingertips. So remember to scan and save your receipts just in case you need them for refunds, returns, or exchanges. You never know when they are going to come in handy.
