Burger King Settlement, Get $2 GC Or $5 If You Purchased BOGO Croissan’wich

What’s The Burger King Settlement About

This lawsuit alleges that certain Burger King restaurants charged a higher price for two modified CROISSAN’WICH breakfast sandwiches (each a “Croissan’wich”) when consumers redeemed a buy-one-get-one-free (“BOGO”) coupon than they would have if the consumer had purchased a single unmodified Croissan’wich® without a BOGO coupon.

The plaintiff noticed the problem when she used a BOGO coupon and was charged $3.19 pre-tax for a sausage, egg and cheese Croissan’wich (and was given another sandwich “free” as part of the deal). But when she went back to buy a single Croissan’wich without a coupon, she was charged just $2.16 before tax.

  1. What are the odds that ANYBODY has a receipt for said purchase? (or could remember exact date…. do all my burger king transactions via gift cards, so no cc records) As such, Burger King gets a (deserved) black eye for this nasty (and common) practice, consumers in theory get some assurance BK now less likely to so engage in the future, and (but of course) partaking lawfirms will do quite well for themselves….. But any actual real restitution?

    ps, speaking of class action lawsuits, seems to me Chase Ultimate Rewards is ripe for one for its really insidious practice of “passing along” (inventing) mythological “fees & taxes” from hotels you book through them. (I’ve got the screen shots from a recent trip — upwards of 30% skimming over top what the fees/taxes should be)) Anybody read this, give a care? Or is Chase beyond touching in this space?

    • I agree, not many people will have saved receipts. I guess estimating dates would work, but you’re only getting $2 that way.

      I guess hold on to those Chase screenshots. We might see one soon.

      • You wouldn’t believe the arguments and flat denials I’m getting from Chase Reps….. even as I suspect they know, they know…. Given the severe corporate arrogance afoot here, I’m half tempted to write this up somewhere…. (easy to document too, btw) Know any blogs in this space that would dare to take on the hand that feeds so many of them?

        • If you want to write up something, I would definitely post it. I don’t receive anything from chase, besides referrals for my personal cards. It might not be as effective as some bigger blogs speaking out tho 🙁

  3. If you click “no receipt”, the form asks for the date of purchase and how much you paid. Which if I had the receipt, I could provide. But since I don’t…
