Staples Rewards Pro Rata Coupon Accounting Policy Class Action Settlement
The Court has decided that everyone who fits this description is a Class Member for purposes of the proposed Settlement: All United States Staples Rewards® members who, during the Class Period,  bought a Rewards-eligible product and a non-Rewards eligible product in the same transaction,  used an item-specific coupon on the non-Rewards eligible product, and  were negatively impacted by Staples’s pro rata coupon accounting. The term “Class Period” means: March 24, 2009 through April 25, 2017.
Please note if the floor settlement of $500,000 is not reached there will be a subsequent distribution among qualified claims of additional $10 rewards. If the ceiling settlement of $2,000,000 is not enough to reward all valid claims the settlement will be divided pro rata thus reducing the amount of the initial distribution

Torczyner v. Staples, Inc Case no. 16-cv-2965 JM (JLB)United States District Court, Southern District of California
Plaintiff Neil Torczyner (the “Representative Plaintiff”) filed a lawsuit against Staples on behalf of himself and all others similarly situated. The lawsuit alleges that Staples engaged in unfair and deceptive business practices by not adequately disclosing that it utilized pro rata coupon accounting when it calculated Staples Rewards earnings in transactions involving product-specific coupons.
Staples denies each and every one of the allegations of unlawful conduct, any wrongdoing, and any liability whatsoever, and no court or other entity has made any judgment or other determination of any liability. Staples further denies that any Class Member is entitled to any relief and, other than for settlement purposes, that this Action is appropriate for certification as a class action.
