Some Burger King breakfast buffs might be owed a little money for wanting a popular breakfast sandwich their way.
Customers who ordered two or more Croissan’wich breakfast sandwiches between Oct. 1, 2015, and May 19, 2017, and used a buy-one, get-one-free-coupon might be eligible for a small payback.
In late December, Burger King said in a news release the fast food chain settled a federal class-action lawsuit that alleged certain locations charged a higher price for two modified breakfast sandwiches when customers used a coupon.
Court documents show fewer than 10% of buy-one, get-one-free sandwich orders were "conceivably impacted by the problem” and the price difference for a modified sandwich without egg, cheese or a meat typically ranged from a few cents up to $1.
Burger King denies any wrongdoing and says employees have "implemented corrective changes."
Still, the company is offering money and gift cards for customers who submit valid claim forms.
Without a receipt and regardless of how many eligible breakfast purchases made, customers can get a $2 Burger King gift card.
People with receipts that prove they were affected, can get a $5 cash settlement for each eligible receipt.
Submit a claim and learn more about the case at www.bkcbogosettlement.com or by calling 877-468-0436.
Claims must be submitted by Jan. 19.
