Groupon Paying $8.5 Million In Expiring Coupon Lawsuit

| Filed under: Legal MattersBusiness Blitz

Groupon Legal

Groupon users, listen up!

Not only can you potentially be getting part of that $8.5 million pie, but you can start getting your vouchers for those expired Groupons!

The company still denies the allegations in the suit, though, for some reason, even though the main allegation in the suit was that the expiration dates on the coupons violated laws such as the federal Credit Card Accountability Responsibility and Disclosure Act.

That law means that if a gift card expires within 5 years, it can't be sold.

This settlement covers customers who received Groupon vouchers between November 2008 and December 1, 2011, and the customers can redeem vouchers passed their expiration dates or recover their money from the $8.5 million settlement fund!

GET ON IT!

Do U Groupon?

    Now only if they would go after another company like this that I bought vouchers from, and never got the products.

    i did it once and was livid with the results. They were not nice about it AND they ran the same scam they had to refund last year! i was a huge pain and sounded like only one kid was in charge. Will not be getting a groupon ever again

    Ridiculous suit! I've used dozens of Groupons..each was extremely clear about when it expired, plus I got email reminders from Groupon letting me know what I hadn't used yet, and when it expired. Alway had great merchants, never had issues using them. If you buy one and don't use It by the exp date, that's on the buyer, not Groupon. At some point people really need to be responsible for their actions, how much more hand holding does a person need? Let's hope the suit doesn't ruin it for those of us that can abide by the rules and enjoy using the discounts.
