Brooks Brothers Credit Card Transaction Class Action Settlement
By Matt O'Donnell
Brooks Brothers has reached a class action lawsuit settlement over allegations it violated California law by requesting and recording personal identification information from customers during credit card transactions. If you made a credit card purchase at a Brooks Brothers retail store in California between 2010 and 2012 and were asked to provide your address, email, zip code or telephone number, you may be entitled to a Merchandise Certificate worth $25 or $50 from the class action settlement.
The Brooks Brothers settlement will resolve a class action lawsuit, entitled Stathopoulos v. Retail Brand Alliance, that alleges Retail Brand Alliance (d/b/a Brooks Brothers) violated the Song-Beverly Credit Card Act by asking customers for personal identification information during credit card transactions. Brooks Brothers denies any wrong doing, but has agreed to a class action lawsuit settlement to avoid the hassle of ongoing litigation.
Class Members of the Brooks Brothers class action lawsuit settlement include all persons who purchased merchandise with a credit card at any Brooks Brothers retail store in California (including factory/outlet) and were asked to provide or did provide personal identification information such as their physical address, email address, zip code and/or telephone number between June 2, 2010 and June 18, 2012.
As part of the class action settlement agreement, Brooks Brothers has agreed to provide a Merchandise Certificate worth $25 off all merchandise purchases up to and including $200, or $50 off all merchandise purchases over $200, redeemable at any California Brooks Brothers store.
If you received a Brooks Brothers Settlement Notice postcard in the mail, you do not need to do anything further to receive your Merchandise Certificate; it will be mailed to the same address where you received the postcard. However, if you did not receive a postcard in the mail and are a Class Member, you must submit a Claim Form by October 16, 2012 to receive your Merchandise Certificate.
