Illinois Burger King Restaurants May Owe You Money
If you ordered out or dine in at at Burger King in the last three years, you may be entitled to some of your money back.
It's the BK Croissan'wich Caper! A lawsuit was filed late in 2017 accusing Burger King of improperly charging customers who used a coupon. The coupon was a buy one, get one free (BOGO) coupon for a Burger King Croissan’wich.
According to a lawsuit filed by Burger King customer Koleta Anderson of Maryland. What happened was Anderson used a BOGO coupon for the popular food item and noticed the restaurant charged her $3.19 for the item when she tried to redeem the coupon. However, the normal price on the Croissan’wich was $2.16.
According to a press release Anderson:
purchased two or more modified Croissan’wich breakfast sandwiches (without egg, cheese and/or a meat) from a Burger King restaurant, redeemed a BOGO coupon in connection with the purchase, and paid more than the amount that restaurant was charging at the time for a single, unmodified, higher-priced Croissan'wich
Was this an isolated incident? According to a report by Fox 32, it wasn't. Anderson had her lawyer travel to several other Burger Kings and discovered the same thing. Each time the charge was more, when the BOGO coupon was used.
So what is Burger King gonna do? They have announced they will refund $5 to those customers who purchased a Croissan’wich between October 1, 2015 and May 19, 2017. However, to get your money back you have to have your receipt. That's a long shot!Burger King operates dozens of location in the Stateline area.
To receive compensation, individuals must file a CLAIM by January 19, 2018.
