We've got something that just might catch your attention: free money. And 12 On Your Side has the info you need to know so you can get your share.

We probably all could use a little extra cash this time of year to pay off all of those holiday bills. And now, you can get it. The only catch is that you had to travel overseas in the past 10 years and use your Visa, MasterCard or Diner's Club card there.

Some of you may have already received a notice about this in the mail, but many more of you may be eligible even if you haven't received a notice.

Here's the deal: there is a class-action lawsuit against Visa, MasterCard and Diner's Club. The lawsuit is aimed at how those companies set fees for overseas transactions.

So, if you traveled overseas between February 1st, 1996 and November 8th, 2006, you may be eligible for a refund of sorts.

The standard amount will be $25, but if you fit some of the other criteria listed, you could get back a lot more.

If you haven't received a notice in the mail, you can go online to see if you are eligible. Just click on the link below to get started.
