Www.MembershipProgramSettlement.com – Membership Program Class Action Lawsuit Settlement
You can get $20 in credit or cash refund in the Membership Program Class Action Lawsuit Settlement at www.MembershipProgramSettlement.com if you bought from Pro Flowers or Red Envelope or even Cherry Moon Farms online. The other places include Secret Spoon and Shari’s Berries. However you must have enrolled in the Membership Programs of these online businesses. These membership programs include EasySaver Rewards, RedEnvelope Rewards. Another membership reward program included in this is also the Preferred Buyers Pass. You should have paid fees for these reward programs from August 19. 2005 to June 26, 2012. So basically if you were enrolled in these programs and were charged the membership fees without knowing about it or without providing consent. These online stores or companies have been sued for breach of contract and good faith.
If you do not want to be in the settlement, make sure that you exclude yourself. Only in this way will you be able to keep all your legal rights. I know this sounds odd because usually when you do not want to participate in anything, you do nothing. However in this case you have to do something in order not to take part. There is also a deadline that you must meet because if you miss this deadline you will not be able to exclude yourself. And if for some reason you miss the deadline, there is nothing that you can do to reverse the situation. You will just have to accept the credit or file a claim form. Remember that you can still file a claim form even if you do get the $20 credit. If you do not file the claim form, you get only the $20 credit and nothing else.
Now the $20 credit that you do get in your email is valid for one year. Also there are black out dates. It is funny that that should be the case but your credit is not valid between December 17 to 24, 2012, February 4 – February 14, 2013 and December 16 to December 24, 2013. You also cannot redeem it for cash and it is not refundable. If you lose it, it will not be replaced. You also cannot use it to buy third party products on the store website. In addition you cannot use it to buy giftcards. Furthermore you cannot use it in conjunction with other coupons or promotions or promotional offers. You can however use it with markdowns, bundled products, discounted products. You can only use the credit for a single transaction. No change can be provided and no credit will be given on any left over balance. You will lose the balance that is not used. You also will not be able to use it on the floristexpress.net and florisexpressonline.net, proflowersinternational.com and fruitbaskettoday.com websites.
The total of the Membership Program Class Action Lawsuit Settlement funds is $12.5 million. This will pay for the claims of the class members and will also include any fees and costs. The amount will also be used for the Class Counsel fees and the awards for the named plaintiffs. The named plaintiffs are Josue Romero, Gina Bailey, Bradley Berentson, Grant Jenkins. Other named plaintiffs include Daniel Cox, Jennifer Lawler, John Walters and Christopher Dickey. What they will get ranges from $5000 to $15000 each. What the plaintiffs get will be more than what each individual class member gets. This is because they were the ones who filed the original lawsuits that lead to the settlement.
If you wish to obtain the $20 credit, you do not have to do anything. You will automatically get the credit by email. This is valid for any future purchases at the online stores. If you received the notice on a postcard in the mail, then you must go to the settlement webstie at www.MembershipProgramSettlement.com and update or provide a valid email address. However, you will have to file a claim form if you want to get payment from the Net Cash Fund. The claim form must be send in by December 10, 2012.
The Fairness Hearing will be held on January 25, 2013. This will be in San Diego, California. You are welcome to attend and speak but you must request this in writing first. You do have legal help in the form of Class Counsel to help you. The Class Counsel has been appointed by the Court and you are allowed to use their services for free.
