Class Eligibility

You are a Class member if you were a Harbor Freight customer in the United States who, between April 8, 2011 and up to December 15, 2016 (the “Class Period”), purchased any product from Harbor Freight which was advertised with a higher reference price (e.g., “reg. $XXX,” “only $XXX,” or “comp at $XXX”) adjacent to a lower current offering price, but which was not sold by Harbor Freight at the higher reference price for at least 28 of the last 90 days prior to purchase.

Estimated Amount

Varies

If you are a Class member and the settlement is approved, and you timely file a Claim Form, you may be entitled to a payment. The settlement allows eligible Class members who timely file claims to elect their recovery as follows:

  • Option A. Customers who have itemized Harbor Freight receipts reflecting one or more purchases between April 8, 2011 and December 15, 2016 with a “you saved” amount reflected on their receipts can submit copies of those receipts and elect to receive either 20% in cash, or 30% in a Harbor Freight gift card, of the total “you saved” amount listed on their receipts, excluding any amounts reflecting free items or items that were later returned.
  • Option B. Customers who have credit or debit card statements reflecting one or more purchases at Harbor Freight between April 8, 2011 and December 15, 2016 can submit copies of those statements and elect to receive either 10% in cash, or 12% in a Harbor Freight gift card, of the total Harbor Freight purchases on their credit or debit card statement(s), excluding any amounts reflecting items that were later returned.
  • Option C. All other customers who made purchases at Harbor Freight between April 8, 2011 and December 15, 2016 may submit one declaration, signed under penalty of perjury, stating that they purchased an item from Harbor Freight (other than a free item or an item that was later returned) that was advertised with a higher reference price (e.g., “reg. $XXX,” “only $XXX,” or “comp. at $XXX”) adjacent to a lower current offering price, and that they do not have itemized Harbor Freight receipts or credit or debit card statements of their Harbor Freight purchases. Customers submitting this declaration will receive one $10 Harbor Freight gift card.

Class members can choose relief under both Options A and/or B above, as long as they provide the appropriate receipts and/or statements; with the exception that the same purchase cannot be submitted under both Options A and B. Class members that qualify for relief under Option A and/or B cannot qualify for relief under Option C above.

If, after payments for all valid claims have been calculated, the total amount paid to Class members, plus administrative fees, plus attorney’s fees, is less than $23 million, Class members with valid claims may be eligible for additional compensation on a pro rata basis. The amount of the additional compensation will depend on what kind of documentation you provided with your Claim Form, whether you opted for a cash payment or a gift card, and the number of Class members who submit valid claims.

Proof of Purchase

No

Those who are able to provide proof of purchase will receive a more generous settlement

Case Name

Beck v. Harbor Freight,
No. 15CV00598
Court of Common Pleas Lake County Ohio

  1. Liz says:

    Where do I get the numbers to be included in this class action. I had bought there many times different items.

    ADMIN – Hi Liz,

    Receipts and credit card statements.

  2. Julie Lafferty says:

    I have printed my claim form claim ID number 20000543 and am returning with a copy of original receipt saying I saved 160.00. Going in mail tomorrow.

  3. Brandy stanton says:

    I made a purchase from harbor freight within the time frame without return and not for free item for which I do not not have receipt.

    • allison says:

      i have the same thing i didnt plan on returning the items so i threw the receipts out.. how do i go about doing this?

      ADMIN – Hi Allison,

      You file without a receipt. You may get less but you will still get something.

  4. Rebecca Bouchard says:

    I have bought MANY things from Harbor Freight within that time limit. I just have to round up receipts and card statements.

  5. Dave Lanagan says:

    I purchased a sander at Harbor Freight that was supposed to be 65% off but I never noticed the sander selling at my Harbor Freight for 65% more that I paid for it. Please include me in this class action.

    ADMIN – Hi David,

    To participate in any of the class actions we publish you must file a claim.

  6. den says:

    I have been buying from HF stores for many years now! MANY of their items are NEVER sold for the price they claim as regular or normal price when advertise on sale! Everything I buy there is a really good deal though! I’ll look for my receipts and sign up, then what ever money I get back I will go to HF and SPEND!
    This must not be too big a deal for them though, I just got a new sales paper and it still shows COMPARE TO $XXX price which is so high price they are comparing their tools to stuff like SNAP-ON!
    Actually though I have had some Snap-on tools and sold them. I really like HF tools better for some things, so maybe it is FAIR to compare prices! Better Tools for a LOWER price!
    Also the last set of Craftsman tools I bought at SEARS was so crappy MANY years ago that it WAS the last set I bought! I have bought HF ever since and never another Craftsman!

    • Robbie cheatham says:

      I feel the same way. I have bought many things from HF including thier 8500 predator generator and have never had a problem with thier products , any money received will be going right back into thier register. Good products at a competitive low price. I hope everyone has the same mentality so the prices don’t increase as a result of current events.

      ADMIN – Hi Robbie,

      Thanks for sharing your perspective. I don’t think you need to worry about prices rising. Most companies keep insurance to cover the costs associated with lawsuits such as this.

    • Mark says:

      Den, their sales prices are pure B.S. I’ve been shopping at HF for over ten years and have been getting their sales catalogs for that same length of time and you see the same items discounted over and over again. I’ve never once seen certain items at their regular price. It’s actually insulting. I hope customers hold their feet tot he fire.

  7. Tammy.Moore says:

    Includee in this class action suite

    ADMIN – Hi Tammy,

    To be included please file a claim.

  8. Vickie L says:

    I drove across town just because they had a good price on toolbox, got there, not only was the price twice as much, but the sales person tried to get me to buy an even bigger and better box. I left empty handed and po, I haven’t shopped at Harbor Freight since. Felt like it was the old bait and switch thing.

    • Kim Pulsipher says:

      How were you able to get a salesman? When I am in the store, they are only by the cash register. You have to ask to have anyone help you. I have shopped there for years and never had anyone do that.

  9. ron durgin says:

    I made a purchase from harbor freight within the time frame without return

    • Maryjoyce Burns says:

      Purchased many tools from Harbor Freight. Many were great, but some fell apart including power washer that ruined me deck. They would not take it back without receipt. Good for them, not good for the party we were hosting!!!

  10. Anthony Johnson says:

    I like to be part of this suit

    ADMIN – Hi Anthony,

    To be part of a suit you must file a claim.

  11. Rowdy B says:

    You go to HF you get what you need take to the check out counter and you either pay the price or you don’t. Damn free loaders you people are so ate up with PC but then again this is what this country has turned into.

    • Teela Marie says:

      Pardon me? I’m part of this country and don’t appreciate your ire, especially since YOU’RE HERE and the sites only purpose is,lawsuits, so not only are you part of “what this country has become”, but you’re a hypocrite who isn’t very bright…smh

  12. Brenda L Brisco says:

    Have made several purchases for years. Looking for receipts.

  13. Lonzell Harris says:

    I will patisapate in the class action

  14. Leroy Jones says:

    I will not join in this ridiculous Class Action Suit against Harbor Freight & neither should you.
    Because of Harbor Freight I was able to purchase all the tools I need to make a great living & support my family. Because of my hard work and Harbor Freight Tools in my hands I am now living the American Dream.
    Harbor Freight has great deals and there is no other company that offers anything close to the value for your money. If they miss-stated a regular price who cares, Nobody with half a brain pays full retail anyway. And who goes into Harbor Freight without a 20% off coupon which can be found online on in the mail. The only ones getting rich off of most class suits are the attorneys. If you get anything from the suit it will amount to a few cents or buck or two at best. Harbor Freight will have to get the money to pay for there defense and claims by raising prices on all of us. We loose and the Attorneys win ALWAYS!.
    I will not join this frivolous suit and neither should you.

    ADMIN – Hi Leroy,

    Thank you for sharing your opinion. While I also personally appreciate their great prices I am not a huge fan of false advertising. I would still shop with Harbor Freight even if they did not overstated their price structure.

    Truth in advertising is primordial to effective and trust-based business relations.

    • Billy Kidd says:

      it doesn’t matter if you file or not, they are going to distribute the settlement amount to those who do file

    • Jason K. says:

      There are laws regarding what businesses can say in their advertisements. One such law regards fake “sale prices.” If a store says that something is on sale, it must have had the item for sale at the listed “regular price” for at least 1 day in the preceding 90 days. If they don’t, it’s an attempt to mislead the customer, and it’s illegal. Yes, HFT has great prices- as such, they really shouldn’t HAVE to resort to that kind of tactic- I shop there because their prices are really good, and I’ll continue to do so. It’s not necessary for them to have pretend “actual prices” on their products when the actual price is already excellent. Violating this law is a civil offense, meaning that the people who are “harmed” by the violation- in this case, people who purchased items that were advertised in this manner- must file a lawsuit to get compensation. If a business engages in dishonest behavior, they should be penalized for it. It’s not “frivolous” to expect that a business play by the rules, nor is it frivolous for a customer to expect to be compensated when the business doesn’t play by those rules.
      In addition, large companies like this carry insurance that covers a large percentage of any legal claim against them. The amount HFT will actually have to pay will probably be enough to make them think twice about violating the law, but it won’t be enough to cause them to have to raise their prices. You and I would be penalized if we break the law, or are negligent and get sued. Corporations aren’t exempt from that.

    • Susan L. says:

      Maybe YOU don’t mind being constantly ripped-off by company’s false advertising.
      But the rest of us need it to stop.

    • Joe in Taunton says:

      Other retailers have been sued by state Attorney Generals for exactly this kind of fraudulent pricing and fake sales. schemes These high-profile cases were reported in the news to alert customers to be aware of this kind of under-handed dealing. HF’s executives and their attorneys would be well aware that this is illegal, yet here we are again. Like you, I appreciate HF’s offerings, but it’s got to be a fair and level playing field.

  15. Benjie says:

    I have many Harbor Freight receipts, but nowhere on any of the receipts do I see a “you saved $xx.xx” as required by the settlement. Can I still submit these receipts?

    ADMIN – Hi Benjie

    The case is specific to items that were advertised as having had a price and then discounted when that was not the case. I encourage you to contact the class action administrator to obtain clarification.

  16. Anita Scott says:

    What is the difference between “You Saved ” and “additional savings”? Some receipts say you saved and others say additional savings. Do both count?

    ADMIN – HI Anita,

    The key is not the words but the amounts:

    You are a Class member if you were a Harbor Freight customer in the United States who, between April 8, 2011 and up to December 15, 2016 (the “Class Period”), purchased any product from Harbor Freight which was advertised with a higher reference price (e.g., “reg. $XXX,” “only $XXX,” or “comp at $XXX”) adjacent to a lower current offering price, but which was not sold by Harbor Freight at the higher reference price for at least 28 of the last 90 days prior to purchase.

    • Jason Duke says:

      I too have some receipts with “You saved” and then some where it appears they changed the terminology to “Additional Savings”

      Do both count or not? Otherwise there is no way for me to be able to tell if something I bought back in 2014 was advertised as being on sale based on the price on the receipt

      ADMIN – HI Jason,

      Submit them all and let the admin decide.

  17. Carl Leming says:

    Do you need all pages of credit card statement or just the one showing the purchase?

    ADMIN – Hi Carl,

    If the one showing the purchase has your name on it I believe it is sufficient.

    • bruce says:

      Since the card/account number is generally listed on that same page with your name and address, redacting that part might be a safe idea. I printed mine, and then I am going to redact the acct. numbers before scanning them and submitting them electronically.

  18. RON PAUL says:

    I have a box FULL of receipts from 2011 to present can I take digital photos and e-mail to someplace or is this mail in only ?

    Hi Ron,

    I believe the online path allows you to upload digital copies.

  19. Teela Marie says:

    Dear Admin…I absolutely don’t know how you do it without losing your mind smh lol

    ADMIN – Hi Teela,

    It takes a special person. 🙂

  20. Carol vanthof says:

    We Dave purchased tons of products over this period of time and unfortunately we do not keep receipts.

  21. Sandra says:

    I have bought lots of stuff from there but don’t have the receipt …And later see a price difference.

  22. Derek says:

    I made a purchase from harbor freight within the time frame without return

  23. jessica says:

    i have made numerous purchases but we no longer keep receipts.

  24. cal says:

    i have more than 100 receipts but none of them say “you saved….”

  25. Jonathan W says:

    Do online purchases count?

    ADMIN – Hi Jonathan,

    If it meets all the requirements set forth by the class I believe they count.

  26. douglas hunt says:

    my 9/23/2016 receipt for 307.39 alone [ that’s 60$] says “additional savings $110.00” instead of “you saved” is it the same or not eligible?

    ADMIN – Hi Douglas,

    The terms read you save, but I would call the admin to get additional clarification.

  27. Shopper says:

    I have receipts from the time period with a total “you saved” amount of over 2,000

  28. Roger says:

    I have many bank statements showing a picture of the front of the checks we wrote to Harbor Freight. Do these count as credit/debit or do I have to settle for the $10 gift card under Option C? We don’t have a debit card. We use checks.

    ADMIN – Hi Roger,

    Call this number to obtain clarification
    1-888-321-0482

  29. david papenfuss says:

    i have a lot that say additional savings , is that what it needs to say?

    ADMIN – Hi David,

    Please contact 1-888-321-0482 with your question.

  30. Steven H Wolters says:

    Tried to get a claim form can’t access site. Can you email me a claim form. Thanks

    ADMIN – Hi Steven,

    I just tested the form and it seems to work perfectly.

  31. Rick Gordon says:

    I purchased a utility trailer and have a duplicate receipt and the flyer that shows the Reg. Price of the trailer- a price it never sold at. The receipt does not have “you saved” on it – would including the flyer put me in category a?

    ADMIN – Hi Rick,

    It sounds like you are category A but I would contact the admin using the contact information I provide above.

  32. cmrb says:

    Side note. Online filing is allowed ONLY IF you have proof of purchase. Without it, it seems you have to print and mail the settlement form by hand.

  33. Douglas McMillen says:

    Have bought lots of item from small to large purchases. Do not have receipts.

  34. Richard Bujaki says:

    I spent some time today on Google to determine if this was a scam or a valid claim, and it appears to be valid. That $3,000,000 settlement is not going to go very far after the lawyers take their cut. I’ve decided not to participate in this class action suit. Yes, I am eligible for the $10.00 rebate as I have bought lots of stuff from Harbor Freight in the past. I was not harmed in any way. I got fair merchandise at a fair price. I was never fooled by false claims of inflated value. I knew it was just a part of the product marketing strategy. I have no moral right to claim I was wronged and claim recompense. I was a ‘eyes wide open’ shopper. So I will not sell my feelings of self worth for a hand full of coins and by so doing, admit that I was so easily duped. My personal integrity, and sense of fair play is not for sale. (Well, not for $10.00 at least.) No foul, no harm, no pay.

    In years past, I have spent a great deal of money on the latest & greatest fishing lures & gear that was guaranteed to catch more fish, which it didn’t. I bought into their hype & hoopla. Should I sue the sellers for my own foolishness?

    • Jason K. says:

      It looks like the $3,000,000 is the part set aside specifically to pay claims, and is separate from the amount set aside to pay the attorneys. In addition, if you read the settlement notice, anything left over from the amount set aside for costs will be added to the claims pool. it’s worth it to file a claim.

    • Mike says:

      If there was a guarantee and the lures did not performe up to said guarantee then you should be able to get some compensation if you choose not to that is your choice

  35. bill dyer says:

    Dear Admin,
    I’d like to upload photocopies of in-store receipts. There would be numerous copies. Is there a maximum file size? Can I also mail a form in for option B for on-line purchases where I only debit card info. The debit card would only show the total purchase including sales tax. How is the 10% calculated for option B?

    ADMIN – Hi Bill,

    Please contact 1-888-321-0482 to ask your questions.

  36. Patricia Gardner says:

    My husband and I bought tools there during the fall of 2016 that were on sale.
    I thought they were a trusted business and had no idea about their dishonesty.

    Sincerely,
    P. Gardner

    • Marco says:

      I personally wouldn’t call it dishonesty. If anything, it’s just as dishonest as telling your friends how handsome all their children are. It’s simply creative marketing that backfired. If anyone sees the same drill every single week at Harbor Freight for 19.99$, with a “regular price” of 79.99$, they are really gullible if they think that is the actual price and that they are just lucky to catch it.

      It’s just a frowned upon marketing practice whose sole purpose is to make you feel better about saving money. This isn’t exactly a practice that harms anyone.

  37. STAN SPAGNUOLO says:

    My fiancee and I have bought many tool for the last 5 years for our wood working crafts

  38. Jason K. says:

    The vast majority of Harbor Freight’s prices show a “compare at” or “regular price” label on the tag. However, most of these items never show “you saved” on the receipt. Anyone able to clarify for me what is going on? Should I just submit all of my receipts? (I have a bunch- they get emailed to you if you’re on file with them)

    ADMIN – Hi Jason,

    Give the admin a call to obtain clarification.

  39. Bill says:

    Your contact number is not helpful, it’s just a recorded message without an option to talk to someone.

    My online bank statements do not go back beyond January 2015, but I do have a record through the Mint website. Would a PDF of purchase records from Mint be acceptable for option B?

    ADMIN – Hi Bill,

    Try contacting them via email. If that fails just submit your MINT statements and see if they work.

  40. David Cov says:

    On making copies of bank statements, If I blacken out the other purchases on my statement and only show the purchase at HF, is that acceptable ? If not what is the acceptable process of sending bank statements ?

    ADMIN – Hi David,

    I am pretty confident that is acceptable, just make sure your personal info shows plus their transaction.

  41. Guy Caporicci says:

    Can I send the original receipts as they may not appear clearly on a copy? Believe it or not, I have found every receipt for Harbor Freight purchases since 2011.

    ADMIN – Hi Guy,

    I would not recommend that. By sending the originals you will be left without evidence in hand.

  42. J. says:

    I have several receipts that say, “Additional Savings” at the bottom instead of “You saved.” Do these receipts quality for the reimbursement?

    ADMIN – Hi J,

    I believe they do but it would be best if you contact the class action administrator.

  43. Ken G. says:

    I track all my spending through Quicken. Very detailed. Send you a Quicken summary of my spending with Harbor Freight Tools. Will that be sufficient?

    ADMIN – Hi Ken,

    I am not sure it will. Why don’t you contact the admin to check? Their info is provided on this page.

  44. laura says:

    I am a mechanic and I bought numerous amounts of tools from Harbor freight on my debt card and I no longer have receipts for those items

    ADMIN – Hi Laura,

    Then you can only file using the path for those without a receipt.

  45. Connie Flanery says:

    I don’t remember if I’ve already filed a claim or not. I have moved & don’t have access to any receipts that I used to have because everything is in storage at this time. I also do not have a forwarding address as of yet. Besides renting a P.O. Box do you have any suggestions? And, can you tell me if I’ve filed a claim? Seems like I may have when I was originally notified about the lawsuit but I could’ve also been looking for any receipts I still may have had so, therefore I didn’t follow through with a claim.
    Thank you kindly for your time.

    ADMIN – Hi Connie,

    I am not the administrator. You need to reach out to the class action admin to answer your questions.

  46. edward cheathem says:

    i have bought numerous amount of items from them should have keep the receipts

  47. ANNIE says:

    fyi, if you have no receipts you will have to print/file the claim form via US Mail https://secure.gcginc.com/nsp/LandingPage.aspx?_ga=1.55573867.1772364787.1492173388

  48. Terri Ivie says:

    I have tons of receipts stuff has faded but I have them. Now what?

    ADMIN – Hi Terri,

    Take a photo and enhance it.

  49. Elvia Rivera says:

    I do t have receipts but I e bought a lot from here

  50. Demetrius Lewis says:

    I have plenty of receipts they are for some reason are in my emails. I just need to go through them one by one.

  51. William says:

    I have 33 credit card PDF statements with 35 harbor freight purchases totalling about $2k. Now what do I do?

    ADMIN – Hi William,

    You file a claim.

  52. Yvonne Root says:

    I have credit card statements on paper where do I find the claim form to submit these?

    ADMIN – Hi Yvonne,

    On the claim form you will see a line item that reads: If you do not have a Claimant ID No. and Control No., please check here:
    Mark that box and follow the instructions.

  53. Hector Munoz says:

    I always shop there but never keep my receipts, but when I purchased these items you guys ask me for my phone number, shouldn’t you guys have all my purchases saved under that number…

    ADMIN – Hi Hector,

    I think HS asks for your phone number as a means to target by market. They do not keep an association between your phone and your transactions. I would suggest however that you double-check with the admin.

  54. Robert says:

    I’ve been shopping there for years. Calculated that I should be getting $488 in store credits and submitted on April 5th! I wonder how long it will take until I get a response.

  55. Khalid Mahmood says:

    I bought 6 or 7 jacks from dover de and salisbury md between 2011 thru 2017 I dont know how to file claim they are asking claimant id and control # where i can find

    ADMIN – Hi Khalid,

    There is a file path that does not require a claimant ID If you read closely on the claim form you will see that you can click your way into this form.

  56. David says:

    I just got my settlement check today ( minus $30 check fee ) I did not want the horror freight plus 10% gift card because i no longer buy stuff from them, 70% of the items they sell are junk. I dont have money or time to waste on there sub standard tools .

  57. Timothy McLaughlin says:

    I have purchased hundreds of items spending thousands of dollars even repeat buying drills saws compressors generators solar setups welding items hand tools galore,locks, Knives, wheels,carts,tarps,Tiedowns, air tools and attachments and supplies blades,bits,glue,tape,batterys,flashlights for my headbig, frivolous and fancy ones got bunches of free ones bought 10 times as many of those standing lamps, bottle jacks, jackstands,towchains,scales and magnifyers and many other,household items lubes,cloths,gloves and much more. I have returned a few things… exchanged others and got parts missing or I lost or that I broke or whatever. The people
    never hassled and I bought over and again mostly cash some card got club membership and some extended warranty but the receipt paper and ink faded 9 blank unreadableness rapidly and repeatedly so what should I do?
    I do?

    ADMIN – Hi Timothy
    Why don’t you try to see if you have credit card records?

  58. John Doe says:

    Is there an estimate as to when the funds will actually be disbursed to the class members? I see there’s a deadline for submissions, but no ETA for disbursement.

    ADMIN – Hi Alex,

    No timeline for payment at the time.

  59. Ron Laskowski says:

    Harbor Freight is a great store selling excellent quality products. Their stock includes hard-to-impossible to find hardware. I have shopped their for years, and have never been disappointed with the products that I purchased. I use their Super Coupons on nearly every purchase. Yes, the prices do vary depending on which sale paper you reference. I suggest that you keep their flyers and be an informed shopper. It is up to the buyer to get the best price. And yes, I will collect all my receipts from the past five years, file a claim for a Harbor Freight gift card, and continue to shop at Harbor Freight for a long time to come.

  60. Warren says:

    The online Claim Form doesn’t not Option C for the $10 Gift Card. There seems to be something fishy going on here on the online form. Looks like the HF is wanting to prevent people from not apply for claim online by doing this and forcing them to apply through mail.

  61. Sharon says:

    When do the checks and gift cards get mailed out? I mailed in my claim and I’m curious when to expect them. Thanks, Sharon

    ADMIN – Hi Sharon,

    It takes sometimes up to a year after the deadline if there are no appeals.

  62. Bryan juranek says:

    I have ordered from harbor freight my hole life without a problem , not once did I feel like I had been taken for a ride , they have a great costumer service , great products at a great price. I have ordered 20 ton press , 2 ton cherry picker , lots of air tools , hand tools , tarps , etcetera , etcetera. I don’t feel like they o me a refund. I won’t be asking for a refund. Thanks for a great place to shop harbor freight.

  63. Rosie says:

    I have printed my claim form to mail in as I can not file online with out a receipt , question is can you file with out a receipt online instead of mailing?

    ADMIN – Hi Rosie,

    I believe you can

  64. RODGER A VANAUSDAL says:

    What about items I purchased using PayPal? I have no monthly statement like a credit card. No store receipt. Only the receipt that came in the box.

    ADMIN – Hi Rodger,
    These are part of the class action.

    When can i expect my gift cards? Sent in the info 3 months ago.

    ADMIN – Hi Chris,

    It may be months if not years.

  66. Chris says:

    For option b, Do I need to send in complete monthly bank statements for every month i shopped there or can I simply do a search for harbor freight transactions and export that data only?

    ADMIN – Hi Chris,

    If the data export includes info that includes your name I think you should be able to use it.

    • Chris says:

      And if full statements can I Mark out unrelated transactions? What specifically is required to be present?

      ADMIN – Hi Chris,

      Yes you can mark out other transaction but make sure the area with your name is visible.

  67. greg purcell says:

    Did you just tell someone it could be YEARS before we get paid on this settlement?

    ADMIN – Hi Greg,

    It could be months if not years. When it comes to class action settlements you hope for the best but expect the worst. There are many cases that get stuck on appeals for what seems like an eternity. Basically, don’t plan your vacation or your wedding with the funds from any settlement. But if everyone gets paid sooner we will have something to celebrate.

  68. David says:

    I have a bunch of credit card statements. I got a couple questions:

    1) Can you only send the relevant pages ( that show the harbor freight tx ) only instead of the whole 3-5 page statement.
    2) Can i redact / cross out the other non relevant transaction, for privacy reasons? I am very reluctant so send years of financial history out in the open like that.

    Thanks!

    ADMIN – Hi David,

    Yes and yes

  69. Bryan juranek says:

    H.F. is a great place to get tools for a great price . H.F. has sold me tools for a lot of years. Not once did I feel like I had been taken for a ride. I see no need for any kind of a refund, that could force them to raise the price of their price

  70. MARCUS CLOSE says:

    Just recently made a purchase

  71. Michael Kazigian says:

    when can I expect paymant? There were some that said they were already paid? What determines the payment priority?

    ADMIN – Hi Michael,

    Where did you read that it was paid already?

    • Michael Kazigian says:

      I just got my settlement check today ( minus $30 check fee ) I did not want the horror freight plus 10% gift card because i no longer buy stuff from them, 70% of the items they sell are junk. I dont have money or time to waste on there sub standard tools .

  72. Thomas Martin says:

    How do I follow up on my completed claim form and receipts I sent in over 45 days ago>?

    ADMIN – Hi Thomas,

    By writing to the class action administrator.

  73. Mark says:

    I’ve been purchasing tools from Harbor Freight for well over ten years now and have scanned almost all of my receipts. Would love to participate in the law suit; however, the amount of money I might expect to receive is not worth my time. I will say this much: every time I receive a Harbor Freight catalog in the mail and I see the same old items year in and year out discounted for the same price I knows it’s pure B.S. They aren’t fooling anybody who has been a customer for as long as I am. Nevertheless, even though I am onto their B.S. sales price scheme, some of their tools are bargains as long as you aren’t planning on trying to make a living using them.

  74. Donna Flye says:

    Can you use the Harbor Freight Gift Card online? Not sure I saw this question here.

    ADMIN – Hi Donna,

    I believe you can.

  75. Joe in Taunton says:

    The claims website is off-line. Can’t acces the online claim form nor the paper form download link.

    https://secure.gcginc.com/nsp/PocForm.aspx
    The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading.

  76. Todd says:

    It seems the receipts are printed with disappearing ink. A bunch of mine are now completely white, no writing anymore.

    • Jennifer Gill says:

      EXACTLY, mine too. Should we just send in the blank receipts and guess the amounts? I think there should be a class action lawsuit against businesses printing receipts that they require for any refund, exchange, warranty, or class-action settlement claim down the road, yet they use ink that magically disappears even if the receipt is kept in ideal conditions! It’s total BS!

      ADMIN – Hi Jennifer,

      I have a receipt scanner. Dreamy little machine.

  77. Nick Keener says:

    I have years of credit card statements do I send whole credit card statement or what and who send to and by when

    ADMIN – Hi Nick,

    Just the portion that shows the transaction, you send it before the deadline to the class action administrator together with a copy of your claim form.

  78. Ed says:

    Has anyone received any sort of confirmation after sending in a claim? I sent a multi page claim in several months ago and never received any kind of acknowledgement.

  79. Carol says:

    Help please, I have dozens of jpgs of receipts and pdfs of credit card statements. I’ve. Even working on them all week. How do I submit these multiple files or do they all have to be combined into 1 file (which I don’t know how to do)? Thank you

    ADMIN – Hi Carol,

    If you are not tech savvy enough to combine various files think about printing your stuff and sending it in the mail certified.

    • Carol says:

      So you are saying I can only submit 1 JPG or 1 PDF?

      ADMIN – Hi Carol,

      I would print and mail my stuff. I don’t think the online application cares if you submit a pdf of JPG but I have the feeling that size and number of files matter.

  80. Carol says:

    One other question. Many of my receipts are over 2 feet long. I can’t get it all in one picture without it being blurry. Is it ok to fold them some to just show Harbor Freight, the date and amount saved or do you need top to bottom?

    ADMIN – Hi Carol,

    Consider taking a picture instead of scanning or scan the receipt in two parts.

  81. William L. says:

    Also, most of my credit card statements only have month and day on the purchase line, with the year maybe on an entirely separate page. Do I have to cobble together a copy with both dates for each purchase, or can I just note the year beside the purchase line? I have about 20 so far…do they want a 20 page PDF file with the submission?

    ADMIN – Hi William,

    I would include the front page plus the page that has the transaction.

  82. Tom says:

    I can’t download or file online. I checked the box for do not have a Claimant ID No. and Control No but I get an error message saying “Claimant ID No. and Control No you entered are not valid. Please enter the Claimant ID No. and the Control No. listed on the email you received.”
    And the contact number is just a voice recording. How can I get the form or file online if the website is broken?

    ADMIN – Hi Tom,

    You can email the class action administrator or contact class counsel.

  83. Dave says:

    I have mailed my receipts and claim form. I have US Postal Service Tracking confirmation it was received. When can I expect my rebate? I never got any type of confirmation that it was received other than my tracking information. Please advice.

    ADMIN – Hi Dave,

    It will be a while before we get updates on this one.

  84. William L. says:

    The filing website is not currently working ( https://secure.gardencitygroup.com/NSP/PocForm.aspx ). It won’t provide access to online filing or to the mail-in form unless you enter Claimant ID and Control numbers, even if you check the box saying you don’t have them. This is grossly negligent situation just before the filing deadline.

    ADMIN – Hi William,

    That sounds super frustrating. I am really sorry you are experiencing issues and I wish I could help

  85. pj says:

    Does anyone know the current status? Has final approval been made?

  86. William L. says:

    Found the glitch. On a hunch, I tried entering a different email address on the site and it proceeded with the process. My guess is this probably indicates that the site’s database sees my main email as one to which a notice with a set of claim numbers was sent at some earlier point. Perhaps such a notice went into a spam folder, as no search of my emails retrieves anything now.

    In any case, it worked for me doing that without any claim numbers, though there still may be others who are stuck in the same quandary without any hint on the website as to how to proceed.

  87. TAREQ ZAKARNEH says:

    when we will get the money for this settlement ? I doubt this money will go to the law firm corporate and we will not get anything

    ADMIN – Hi Tareq,

    Once the case is moving forward with distribution I will post it on our Facebook page.

    • Philip says:

      What is your Facebook page so I can check to see how the payout is progressing.

      ADMIN – Hi Phillip

      https://www.facebook.com/ClassActionRebates/

    • Philip says:

      Hi,
      Is this your facebook page? I would like to have an idea when they will start paying out claims. They kind of keep us in the dark. I don’t think they even acknowledge they are working on claims or if there are any legal objections that would slow things down.

      Phil

      ADMIN – Hi Phil,

      Like I mentioned before, we don’t have an update as to when this will be paid.

  88. Dave says:

    Too late to submit?

    ADMIN – Hi Dave,

    Please refer to the deadline when wanting to know if you are too late to submit for any of the settlements we post. In this case you are too late.

  89. Matthew says:

    I too am wondering what happened at the settlement hearing on 7/7/17. Did he judge approve the settlement?

    ADMIN – Hi Matthew,

    I have no updates.

  90. Dan says:

    Is there any way to find out if my individual application is in the que?

    ADMIN – Hi Dan,

    You have to contact the class action administration.

  91. William Holderman says:

    I call a couple of weeks ago. Inquiring about my claim. The fellow who I chatted with said they have my claim and said I’d receive status of my claim. Could you please ck where this claim is in the food chain. Sent to you in June.

    Thank you

    ADMIN – Hi William,

    I can’t. Our website is simply a newspaper of class actions and not the administrator for most cases we feature.

  92. Michael says:

    When will we know the outcome?

    ADMIN – Hi Michael

    Some settlements take months to years before they come to a final resolution.

    • Philip says:

      Does this mean the statement they made that they would start paying out 60 days after august 7, 2017 are bogus?

      Phil

      ADMIN – Hi Philip,

      That was an estimation, not written in stone.

  93. Andrea says:

    Has anyone seen a check yet?

  94. Class Member says:

    I sent in my claim form and receipts per the settlement instructions, but also did not receive any notification. I called the law firm and received an email stating they were still going through claims. I emailed back about a week before the turn in deadline and received a reply that my claim has been approved. I emailed them again around the first of Sept to ask about the settlement approval hearing and the firm replied that they are still waiting on the courts decision. I’m not sure how long that takes, especially when the case has already been settled. I asked when we would know about the checks and the firm replied they “will update the website (nationalpricesettlement) with any new info.” Well, the only thing I worry about is the site says you have 60 days to cash your check before it is void. BUT, they won’t tell us when to look out for it! What the heck!? And they don’t expect people to be anxious? I do not see any new info on the website since they created it. I keep thinking, maybe they already sent checks out and mine got lost. How will I know? And if I ask about it too late, they will say, you should have called sooner. They need to post an update, even if it is “Still Working On It.” I will save this page. Please post any new info you receive. Thank you!

    ADMIN – Hi Member,

    If you follow our Facebook page you will see that lots of community members alert us as soon as they receive their checks.

  95. Class Member says:

    What is the total of your claim? Post it in a reply. I’d like to see how much is getting paid out vs all the money going to the firms.

    ADMIN – Hi Class Member,

    Always remember, without the work and risk taken by those firms there would be no class action settlements. For every one they win they have invested and lost many other cases.
