Heck, not only do I not recall if I ate a breakfast sandwich at a Starbucks location between the dates of April 25, 2015 and August 17, 2015, but I can't even remember what I ate for breakfast yesterday.
The reason I ask is that Starbucks has entered into a class action settlement that claims that certain California Starbucks locations charged too much during said time frame for its Reduced-Fat Turkey Bacon Breakfast Sandwich ($3.75 was allegedly charged when the listed price was $3.45) and the Sausage & Cheddar Breakfast Sandwich ($3.45 charged instead of $3.25 it is alleged).
Starbucks denied all claims but decided to settle the case to avoid further expense, which among other things includes the cost of advertising the settlement for prospective claimants.
But they are not paying me to write about it here.
Yes, you can make a claim to recoup your losses if you overpaid for one of these two breakfast sandwiches during the 111 day period noted above.
What can you get out of this?
If you purchased said sandwiches using your Starbucks Reward account, you're in luck. There's a digital record of your expenditures and you will automatically receive a credit of 25 cents per sandwich purchased. Heck, if you ate a breakfast sandwich every day during that period, you will be receiving a credit of $27.75 in your account and don't need to fill anything out. Yippee! Or maybe you ate two per day. That would be $55.50 in moolah back in your account.
If you have proof of purchase of your sandwich(es) in the form of a receipt, you must complete a claim form, available at www.BreakfastSandwichSettlement.com (I knew I should have purchased that domain name years ago) and receive 25 cents per purchase. The credit expires after 90 days. If any of you actually can find such receipts during that time frame, contact me. I want to hire you as my accountant.
If you are like most people and have no receipts, yet, unlike me, actually can recall acquiring at least one of the above mentioned breakfast sandwiches during said 111 day period, then all you gotta do is, confirm, "under penalty of perjury," that you did purchase at least one of these allegedly delicious breakfast sandwiches between 4/28/15 and 8/17/15. The reward for such amazing recollection will be a 50 cent coupon code good for up to 90 days after issuance.
Or, you can be like me, and spend 30 minutes writing about the insanity of it all and get a few laughs out of this breakfast sandwich caper. As I sit here drinking my $4.95 Grande Frappuccino.
