How to Cash In
Anyone who used their LinkedIn account to connect with non-members between Sept. 17, 2011 and Oct. 31, 2014 can join the class action suit and file a claim for a piece of the company's juicy, $13 million settlement. All you have to do is submit your online claim by December 14th, and if you're approved, you'll be on the list.
Of course, how much you actually receive will depend on how many people file approved claims -- meaning that $1,500 maximum could look more like the $10 minimum LinkedIn is obliged to pay out to each plaintiff. Still, that's $10 more than LinkedIn has likely ever netted you in the past, so what's the harm in trying?
