Details: Did you ever sign up (willing or not) for a Cendant (now known as Avis Budget group)/Trilegiant service? These used to be marketed heavily on America Online, Home Depot, on Chase and GMAC Mortgage Statements and elsewhere. Read through the list of companies above. You could have been charged for them on your credit card, bank, phone or mortgage statement. If you were charged, the maximum you can claim without any proof of purchase is $20. Just Print out the Claim Form by downloading it here. You'll need Adobe Acrobat Reader to view it. Unfortunately you'll have to submit a paper copy. They say you can email the form, but since the form that's posted is locked, you can't edit or save it so you're stuck printing it, filling it out and mailing it in. Unless you were mailed this form, and it already has your name address listed on it under Personal Information, you'll need to check the box that states "Check this box and provide your current name and address..." Next, if you have invoices (credit card statements for example) showing the charges you're claiming, check the "Documentary Support" box showing the charges. That way you can receive a refund for all or at least most of those charges (up to 3 years of charges and each charge must be documented.) Please note, if you EVER used one of the services that you were subscribed to (for example free or low cost towing via the AutoVantage service) then your claim may be denied. The settlement allows them to decline it and only refund those who paid, but never received any benefits from the subscription. Those who don't have any invoices or statements showing they were charged for any of the services should check the Self Certification box. You'll only receive $20, but, that's not bad for not having to submit any proof of purchase! Make sure to sign, date and mail it in and you're all set!
Purchased From: July 10, 1998 - February 14, 2008
Claims Accepted Until (YOU MUST SUBMIT YOUR CLAIM BY THIS DATE!): January 15, 2009
Class Action Lawsuit Settlement Amount(s): $25,000,000 + $8,000,000 in attorney fees + all expenses related to paying out the suit (advertising the notice, settlement administrator expenses, etc.)
TCA Staff Tidbit: Did you ever agree to a subscription offer from ANY of the multitude of company names above? You could have done this by cashing one of those "free" checks for a few bucks (sometimes as high as $25 or $50) which are sometimes included in credit card or mortgage statements which automatically enroll you in credit card "protection" once the checks are cashed. If you remember ever doing so, then you'll probably want to submit your claim. At a minimum you'll likely receive $20, for very little effort. If you happen to have statements showing your payments, all the better! You might even be able to log in to your credit or mortgage account online and print out old statements showing the charges. Make sure to do so! You can claim up to three years worth of charges, so it's worth your time. I know my wife signed up for a credit protection service just to make the calls stop coming in bothering her a number of years ago. Now that was a huge pain to cancel. She paid it for months, because when she tried to cancel her credit card company said it wasn't their product and transferred her to a number whose customer service department was closed. We'll definitely be submitting our claim. Why don't you? I know we'll only get $20, but that will (almost) pay for a large package of baby formula from Costco! For some reason the baby keeps eating and we need it. Make your claim now if you can!
