You can receive up to $30 cash (Click on CLAIM FORM on left of page)
Discover Financial Services has reached a $10.5 million class action lawsuit settlement over allegations it duped its customers into signing up for the fee-based products: Discover Payment Protection (formerly known as Discover AccountGuard), Identity Theft Protection (formerly known as Profile Protect), Wallet Protection (formerly known as The Register), and Credit Score Tracker. As a result, consumers who were enrolled in one of these products between 2004 and 2011 may be eligible to receive up to $30 from the Discover product class action settlement
(1) Consumers were enrolled in Products without their consent;
(2) Discover and its sales agents misrepresented and omitted material facts regarding the cost of the Products;
(3) Discover and its sales agents misled consumers by hiding the true nature of telemarketing calls and misrepresenting that consumers would receive promotional materials prior to enrollment;
(4) Discover misrepresented the date of enrollment for Products;
(5) Consumers enrolled in Discover Payment Protection improperly were charged an amount equal to .89/100 multiplied by their account balance each month rather than .89 cents for each full $100 of their account balance;
(6) Certain consumers were enrolled in Discover Payment Protection despite being ineligible for benefits;
(7) The fees for Products are unconscionably high; and
(8) Consumers improperly were denied Discover Payment Protection benefits.

The proposed Discover Payment Protection class action settlement includes all persons in the United States who were enrolled in or billed for Discover Payment Protection, AccountGuard, Identity Theft Protection, Profile Protect, Wallet Protection, The Register and/or Credit Score Tracker between January 21, 2004 and November 9, 2011 (the Class Period).

You must submit a claim form online by the deadline of June 6, 2012
