I was quite surprise when over the weekend, I received an email notice that settlement had been in lawsuit against Livingsocial. I didn’t realize that it’s against to law to sell “gift certificates” with an expiration date on them. I want to say those gift certificates only had a 30 or 60 days expiration, it was super short so I am sure allot of people were not able to redeem the gift certificates within that time period.
That Livingsocial deal was in December 2, 2012 and I bought them as Christmas gifts – guys seem to love going to McDonalds.
The weird thing is I had been assigned a Class Member Number and when I checked out the lawsuit website, they had all of my information – the date of purchase, the items that I purchased along with the date. There were a series of questions to answer and they offered to ACH to money into your account (I opted for a check).
