PHOENIX — Do outlet stores sell the same things you can find in their other stores, but at better prices? That's what a lot of outlet shoppers may think.

However, a class action lawsuit alleges that Coach outlet stores don't operate that way.

The suit claims that despite tags appearing to have mark downs, Coach outlet stores are full of items made specifically for outlets and not sold elsewhere.

Scott Hardy, with topclassactions.com, says the settlement means if you bought from a Coach outlet store between December 23, 2011 and August 24, 2020. And the item must have a tag showing a suggested retail price.

Customers could get $10 cash or a $40 voucher.

The deadline to file a claim is Thursday, January 21, 2021.

Another settlement involves questions over a lifetime warranty. It sounds great until you try to use some of them and find out about all the conditions that can render them useless.

A lawsuit against Costa Del Mar claims their sunglasses lifetime warranty comes with an unfair repair fee. The suit claims it's more than a nominal fee.

A settlement means if you bought before 2018 and paid for repairs, you could qualify for part of the $60 million dollar settlement.

The deadline to file a claim is January 31st, 2021.

A different class action lawsuit involves something you may not know; privacy laws prevent credit and debit card receipts from having more than the last five digits shown.

Also, receipts cannot show expiration information.

A lawsuit involving Everi, the provider of ATMs and casinos, alleges receipts showed more numbers than allowed.

If by chance you have those receipts from February 2016 through 2019, you could get up to $60 per violation.

But the law allows up to $1000 per violation if you can prove it. Unfortunately, you may have to go to court to get it.
