If you're a Burger King fan who loves buying Croissan'wich breakfast sandwiches, you may be entitled to a refund for your meal. One Burger King customer just reached a settlement with the fast food chain after alleging that certain restaurants were actually charging higher prices for specific Croissan'wich breakfast sandwiches when consumers redeemed a BOGO coupon.
The customer in question claimed that the company was inflating prices for modified Croissan'wich sandwiches — meaning sandwiches without egg, cheese and/or a meat — purchased with a BOGO coupon, which led to the price actually being higher than it would if a customer bought a single unmodified Croissan’wich without a BOGO coupon. Burger King denies that it did anything wrong, and the court did not reach a decision about who was right.
That said, the settlement offers $5 payments or $2 gift cards to those who submit a valid claim form. According to a press release, this may include you if "During October 1, 2015 and May 19, 2017 (the “Class Period”), you 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 you ordered."
