Users of the Bumble dating app may be able to get as much as $129 from a $22.5 million class action settlement resolving auto-renewal claims.
There are two sets of Class Members: California consumers who were charged for an auto-renewal of a Bumble Boost subscription between Nov. 13, 2014 and July 15, 2020; and a nationwide Class of consumers who purchased the Bumble Boost between Nov. 13, 2014 and July 15, 2020.
In 2018 a pair of class action lawsuits accused the makers of the Bumble dating app of failing to inform users about their legal right to cancel their subscription to a “Boost” program. The complaints alleged that the Bumble Boost subscription violated California state auto renewal laws, as well as dating service laws in New York.
The plaintiffs claimed they and other Class Members subscribed to the Bumble Boost premium service through the Bumble dating app. Fees for the service allegedly ranged from between $8.99 to $139.99, depending on the length of the “boost,” one week to six months.
The plaintiffs said the Terms of Service for Bumble Boost did not clearly indicate the subscription would be renewed automatically unless the user cancelled. Additionally, Bumble allegedly made it difficult to cancel the Boost subscription.
