What is the Lawsuit About?
The lawsuit alleges that TJX engaged in false or misleading price comparison advertising through the Compare At prices on TJX price tags in its California stores between July 17, 2011, and December 6, 2017 in violation of various California laws that prohibit false advertising and unfair competition. TJX denies: (1) that it used false or misleading price comparison advertising; (2) that it has done anything wrong; and (3) that the Plaintiffs or consumers have been harmed in any way. The Court has not decided who is right.
Am I Included?
You may be included in the Settlement if you purchased one or more items from a T.J. Maxx, Marshalls, or HomeGoods store in California between July 17, 2011 and December 6, 2017 (the "Class Period"), with a TJX price tag that included a Compare At price, and have not received a refund or credit for all of their purchases.
What are the Benefits?
Class Members who submitted Verified Claims were mailed a TJX Merchandise Credit paid from what is remaining of a $8,500,000 settlement fund after deducting the costs of administering the Settlement, court-approved attorneys’ fees and costs, and payments to the Class Representatives. The amount of the TJX Merchandise Credit is $27.53, and was based on the amount of money left in the settlement fund after making the deductions listed above and the total number of valid claims filed.
Merchandise Credits can be used to purchase any item in any T.J. Maxx, Marshalls, or HomeGoods store in California. More than one Merchandise Credit may be used at a time and they may be used in conjunction with other promotional discounts that are otherwise available with the use of gift cards or merchandise credits. Merchandise Credits do not expire. You may give your Merchandise Credit to someone else, but you cannot resell it. You may exchange it for cash in an amount equal to 75% of the Merchandise Credit at the time of its issuance for up to one year after issuance by returning the Merchandise Credit to the Claims Administrator unused. Merchandise Credits that have previously been used for a purchase are not redeemable for cash.
