Up to $200 will be provided for the settlement of the Safeway lawsuit. Reports say Safeway was accused of deceiving its Club Card members of a buy-one, get-one-or-two-free deal in Oregon.In accordance with the Safeway lawsuit, the grocery store owned and managed by Albertsons Companies, Inc. was accused of deceiving its Club Card members. The company reportedly tricked the members into thinking they will get a buy-one, get-one-or-two-free (BOGO) deal in Oregon.
Furthermore, according to Weiss, the Safeway lawsuit states that the company also imposed fees on non-grocery purchases in Portland. This means that the prices on items like beef, chicken, and pork were increased. Safeway customers claimed that this is because of the 1% clean energy surcharge imposed on large retailer revenue in 2019.
Nonetheless, the company decided to settle the Safeway lawsuit with a total payment worth $8.75 million. Every affected customer may claim an equal share of the payments capped at $200 each. Unfortunately, the amount to be received may be reduced depending on the number of claims that will be filed.
Who is qualified for the Safeway lawsuit settlement?
According to Wilson, to be able to qualify for the settlement of the Safeway lawsuit, a customer must have purchased certain meat products at the stores located in Oregon. Furthermore, these products must have been offered on a BOGO deal. Most importantly, only those who have used a Safeway Club Card between May 4, 2015, and September 7, 2016 will receive the payments. The deadline to submit a claim is scheduled to be on June 16.
