In the year 2016, Lindell’s MyPillow company was sued in Alameda County Superior Court in Oakland, California, for running ads with false claims of the pillow helping with snoring, fibromyalgia, migraines as well as other medical conditions.
Prosecutors in 9 California counties brought the charges against the misleading infomercials. MyPillow settled for about $1 million while admitting no wrongdoing.
In the year 2017, the Better Business Bureau (BBB) revoked the accreditation of MyPillow, lowering its rating to an F based on a pattern of complaints by consumers. The BBB cited a Buy One, Get One offer that became a continuous offer as well as therefore the normal price of the product, not a sale price or free offer.
