If you've ever sipped on a Vizzy vitamin-infused hard seltzer, you'll want to pay close attention. You may be eligible to get a piece of a $9.5 million settlement pie! Molson Coors, the parent company of Vizzy, has agreed to settle a class-action lawsuit regarding the allegedly misleading marketing of their product. Today we'll guide you through the process of claiming your Vizzy settlement dollars, how much you can expect to receive, and when you should expect a payout.
