Your Tupperware Contract probably says you can’t sue Tupperware in any court except Small Claims Court, because of an arbitration clause. We explain the steps to sue Tupperware in small claims court. If you follow them, it usually gets you what you want.
Ready to sue Tupperware in small claims court? First you need to make sure you qualify. Small claims courts are only for certain types of claims, and there are two things you need to pay attention to:
If your claim doesn’t fall within the limits of your state’s small claims court, you’ll have to arbitrate your claim instead.

If you would like examples of demand letters or more information about how to write them, you can find an excellent guide here.
Each state has a set of forms that need to be filled out to file a claim, and sometimes counties will provide additional forms. The correct forms for your location will be available for free on your state court’s website. You can find your state court website here.
Make sure you fill out enough forms, usually 3 or 4 copies. If you don’t have the right number, they will not let you sue Tupperware in small claims court.
When you have finished writing, it is now time to sue Tupperware in small claims court officially through a process called “Filing”.
Once there, you will need to pay the small claims court filing fee, the amount of which should be on your court website.
Assuming all the paperwork is in order (and you had the right number of copies) the clerk will give you back your stamped copies and a court date.
Look at your court’s website for instructions on how to properly deliver your forms to Tupperware, or search for “[your state] small claims service of process”.
Be careful because your claim will be dropped if you do not follow them perfectly.
Make sure you know which courthouse to go to. Bring your copy of your filed forms, and any other evidence that backs up your case as to why you decided to sue Tupperware in small claims court and why the judge should award you compensation.
Sometimes, Tupperware will not show up to oppose you. If that happens, take advantage of the situation to focus on your side of the story.
