We have reached a proposed classwide settlement with SquareTrade in this class action lawsuit. This proposed settlement, if approved, will potentially impact SquareTrade protection plan purchasers in the United States who were reimbursed based on (a) a mistakenly-applied cap on protection plan coverage, or (b) an estimate of a product’s replacement cost under the Fast Cash program.

SquareTrade Lawsuit Amended Complaint
Gibbs Law Group filed the initial complaint against SquareTrade on April 20, 2020. As the complaint describes, SquareTrade sells protection plans for products sold at retailers, including Sam’s Club, and Costco. When a consumer purchases a product, like a backpack or a television, the consumer can also purchase a protection plan from SquareTrade, as described in the lawsuit. For a flat fee, as alleged, SquareTrade promises replacement, reimbursement, or repair in the event of damage during a fixed time period.
However, as the complaint describes, SquareTrade does not pay consumers the full amount to which they are entitled when they make a reimbursement claim. Instead, SquareTrade pays out only a portion of the purchase price promised under the protection plan, as alleged.
