Abercrombie & Fitch Gift Card Class Action Lawsuit

 

This class action lawsuit revolves around Gift Cards issued in the year 2009 by Abercrombie & Fitch.  The lawsuit is entitled Beth Seaver v. Abercrombie & Fitch Stores, Inc. and is Case No. 11-cv-771466.  The lawsuit claims that Abercrombie & Fitch advertised a gift-card promotion to Ohio consumers in December 2009 with no expiration date but went on to void the gift cards in January 2010 which is a breach of contract and violation of the Ohio Consumer Sales Practices Act according to the Abercrombie & Fitch Gift Card Class Action Lawsuit. 

The gift cards issued in 2009 were a result of a promotion where a customer would make a purchase of $100 or more (at Ohio Abercrombie stores) and then receive a $25 Abercrombie gift card.  At the time of promotion there was not an expiration date on the gift card.  But then on January 30, 2010 things went terribly wrong.  Abercrombie & Fitch VOIDED the gift card on that date rendering it useless to customers who received the gift card in relation to the $100 promotional campaign.  Abercrombie electronically put an expiration date on the gift card, despite the cards indicated there was no expiration date.  This seems like a pretty shady move by this popular teen clothing store.  More can be read about the Abercrombie & Fitch Gift Card Class Action Lawsuit here.
