Received the following email with my Claim ID and PIN Code. If you did not receive a similar email and feel you qualify based on the below criteria, you can easily start a claim by visiting [] as indicated below.


If you made a purchase at Kohl's or while in California, you could receive a store credit from a class action settlement.

Para una notification en Español, llamar 1-844-851-4589 o visitar nuestro website []

A settlement has been reached in a class action alleging that Kohl's Department Stores, Inc. used false "regular" and "original" prices in advertising its products. Kohl's denies that it used false price comparison advertising or that it has done anything wrong. The Court has not decided who is right.

You are included in the Settlement as a "Class Member" if, while in California, you purchased one or more items advertised as 30% or more off of the stated "original" or "regular" price from a Kohl's store or between June 11, 2011 and April 11, 2016, and you have not received a refund or credit for that purchase. If you are eligible, you may be able to receive a store credit ("Gift Card Credit") that may be used toward purchases at any Kohl's store or at More than one Gift Card Credit may be used at a time and may be used in conjunction with other promotional discounts that are otherwise available with the use of gift cards. Gift Card Credits do not expire. You may give your Gift Card Credit to someone else, but it cannot be redeemed for cash, except where required by law.

The Gift Card Credits will be paid from what remains of a $6,150,000 settlement fund after deducting the costs of administering the Settlement (up to $1,000,000), court-approved attorneys' fees of up to 25% of the Settlement Fund ($1,462,500 in fees and costs up to $75,000), and payments to the Class Representatives (up to $7,500 per Class Representative for a total of $15,000). The amount of the Gift Card Credit will be determined by dividing the remainder of the Settlement Fund among the total number of Class Members who submit valid claims.

To receive a Gift Card Credit, you must file a claim by August 9, 2016. Claim Forms may be submitted online at [], printed from the website and mailed to the address on the form, or obtained by calling 1-844-851-4589.

If you file a claim or do nothing and the Court approves the Settlement, you will give up your right to sue Kohl's for any of the claims released by this Settlement. If you don't want to receive a Gift Card Credit but you want to keep your right to sue Kohl's individually for the same claims resolved by this Settlement, you must exclude yourself by August 9, 2016. If you do not exclude yourself from the Settlement, you may object and notify the Court that you or your lawyer intends to appear at the Court's Fairness Hearing. Objections and notices of intentions to appear are due August 9, 2016. For more information, including the Detailed Notice and Amended Settlement Agreement, call or go to [].

The Court will hold a hearing on September 12, 2016 to determine whether to approve: the Settlement; how much to award in fees and costs to Class Counsel; and how much to award the Class Representatives. You or your attorney may attend, but you don't have to. The date of the hearing may change without further notice, so please check [] for updates.

This is only a summary. The details regarding the Settlement, your rights, the Claim Form, and scheduling information can be found at []. You may also call 1-844-851-4589 or email [] with any questions.

The lawsuit is known as Russell, et al. v. Kohl's Department Stores, Inc., Case No. 5:15-cv-01143-RGK-SP, pending in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California.

I file all these small claims that get posted and I have yet to be paid by any of them. Remember the tuna one? How about that Canon printer one and then there were several others.

Has anyone actually gotten money from these?
