Old Navy Customers To Get Up To $10 Worth Of Purchase Certificates In Reference Pricing Class Action Settlement
Old Navy clients in the United States, except those from the state of Missouri, can receive benefits in the latest Old Navy Reference Pricing Settlement deal. According to reports, it is said that eligible claimants can receive up to $10 worth of purchase certificates exclusive for use in Old Navy’s locations.
Old Navy Enters Settlement Deal To End False Reference Pricing Lawsuit
The settlement stemmed from a class action case filed by plaintiff Anastasha Barba against the garment seller. Old Navy, a clothing retail brand under Gap Inc., was accused of perpetrating misleading sale advertising claims to trick its would-be customers.
The Old Navy Reference Pricing Class Action Lawsuit alleged that Old Navy engaged in doing false reference pricing tactics.
It is said that customers were duped into thinking that they were buying an item on sale at a discounted price compared to the original price. But upon further checking, the said offerings did not originally sell for the mentioned price tag.
Barba claimed that the company’s false reference pricing method made consumers more likely to make a purchase, for they think that they are snagging a great deal.
In its defense, Old Navy has vehemently denied the allegations, yet it concurred that going into settlement mode is a viable way to resolve the class action.
