Class Eligibility

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, [1] bought a Rewards-eligible product and a non-Rewards eligible product in the same transaction, [2] used an item-specific coupon on the non-Rewards eligible product, and [3] were negatively impacted by Staples’s pro rata coupon accounting. The term “Class Period” means: March 24, 2009 through April 25, 2017.

Estimated Amount

$10 rewards

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

This settlement is not requiring receipts but you need to be a Staples Rewards member

Case Name

Torczyner v. Staples, Inc
Case no. 16-cv-2965 JM (JLB)
United States District Court, Southern District of California

Case Summary

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.

    The postal card instructions says you must submit a valid claim form.
    But: The website they send you to, seems to be a scam website.

    I am trying to find out if I am eligible to file. I do not have my old receipts. I was going to submit a claim but did not understand the legal verbiage. Can someone help me with the verbiage before submitting a claim?

    ADMIN – Hi PW,

    Let’s say you purchased two things, one that gave rewards and one that did not. And then you used a coupon for the non-rewards item but your total amount of rewards was adjusted to the lesser amount. If that was the case you are class member.
