Walmart Coupon Class Action Settlement

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)


 

1.    What is this lawsuit about?

A class action lawsuit was brought on June 8, 2013, which alleged that Pennsylvania law requires retailers like Walmart to deduct the value of coupons used in a purchase before calculating the amount of sales tax owed on the purchase. The lawsuit also alleged that Walmart’s receipts were confusing regarding the sales tax that was collected, and that Walmart was able to deduct the value of the coupon before charging sales tax, but did not do so.

Walmart denies that it did anything wrong, and contends that it received an opinion from the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue that allowed Walmart to collect the tax.

This is only a summary. You can obtain more detailed information in the Notice and here on the settlement website.


2.    Does this settlement apply to me?

The Court has decided that, for settlement purposes, if you shopped at a Walmart store in Pennsylvania between June 8, 2007 to September 18, 2018 and used a coupon in purchasing a taxable item, you are considered a member of the class and will be covered by the terms of this settlement.


3.    Why did I receive a gift card?

You received a gift card because you submitted a claim in the Farneth v. Wal-Mart Settlement. The Claims Administrator determined your claim was timely and valid, so you are being provided your share of the approved settlement benefits, which is a credit in the form of a gift card, in the amount of $77.61. The gift card is redeemable at any Walmart or Sam’s Club store, or online at walmart.com or samsclub.com. There is no minimum purchase requirement to use the gift card.


4.    How can I get a replacement card?

If you submitted a valid claim that was approved by the Claims Administrator, and if you elected to receive a gift card by mail, you should receive your gift card in the mail after the mail date of July 31, 2019. If you did not receive your card, or if you received your card and subsequently lost it or it has been damaged, you may request a replacement gift card from the Claims Administrator. Requests for replacement gift cards will be considered until November 21, 2019. You may request a replacement physical card to be mailed to you, or you may request an eGift Card to be emailed to you.
