These class action lawsuits may hold cash for you

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Want to make some money? There are several class action lawsuit settlements you need to know about that may hold some cash for you.

There is hidden cash in nearly everything we've bought over the last few years, from cell phones to using a rental car.
  
But before you buy any new devices this Christmas, can you recall any mobile device, laptop, computer or anything you own, which uses a lithium-ion battery to run it?

If you mad a purchase between 2001 to 2011, it could mean money in your pocket. A number of lawsuits allege the top makers of those batteries schemed to raise and fix prices.

The $45 million in payouts will be calculated by how many people file claims. You have until Nov. 29 to apply. Click here for more details.

If you landed a parking violation in your Hertz rental,  you're responsible for paying that of course, but according to the Top Class Actions website a claim filed this past Summer alleges Hertz tacked on administrative and handling costs along with a ticket a customer got.

Customers can file for a chunk of the $2 million settlement and the deadline is Nov. 30. Click here for more details.

Many families are using a popular DNA kit. If you've tried 23andMe, you could get up to $40 dollars back if you qualify. This affects people who used the service from 2007 to 2013.

You could get either a cash payment or a certificate good toward the purchase of a Genetic Testing Kit from the 23andMe website.

You have until Dec. 6 to file a claim. Click here for more details.
