What’s Going On With The Kellogg’s Promotion Class Action Lawsuit?
Oftentimes, promotions are used as attention grabbers, as consumers tend to believe that they are getting more than what they paid for. It may be additional products that they can get us on, or a simply coupon, but it usually means you’re buying something to begin with.
This is the very reason a Class Action was filed against Kellogg’s! The promotions they have been printing on their product packaging.
The Kellogg’s Cereal Class Action alleges that the promotions printed on Kellogg’s products end long before the expiration date of their shelf life. It makes customers believe that they will receive what’s printed on the packaging, when, in reality, they will not.
The case also states that the company is inclined to print out more product packaging to display a particular promotion so that they can sell their products more and more, although, when the promotion ends, there are still products that have that particular promotion printed on them, making customers feel they got a great deal long after the deal is done.
There are several scenarios included in the case
One of the highlights comes from a 2017 promotion where boxes of Eggo Waffles showed an offer for “$5 Off Crayola” if the customer buys three packages of Eggo Waffles or Pancakes. Although on the fine print on the bottom of the box, the offer was only valid between June 1 until September 30, 2017. The product’s expiration date was even more than a year after the promotion’s expiration date.
Another scenario was when a “$6 Movie Snack Cash” promotion was printed on Apple Jack boxes. The promotion was only valid between the months of October 2019 until January 2020, but boxes set to expire in September 2020 also had the promotions printed on them.
