If you have bought breakfast from Burger King in the past couple of years, you might be able to get part of a settlement against the food company pretty soon.

Back In December, the food company had released a statement saying that they settled a federal class-action suit which had alleged that some of Burger King's locations had started to charge more for their modified breakfast sandwiches when customers came in to the location to use those coupons. The court documents about this settlement have detailed that less than 10 percent of these deals were truly impacted from this actual issues. The change in price for the modified sandwiches without the egg, cheese or meat had usually ranged anywhere from a few cents to a dollar.
Burger King has since denied doing anything wrong and said that their employees have implemented the correct changes to remedy the issues. However, the company is still going to be offering gift cards or cash to their customers who can submit a valid claim on the forms. If you don't have your receipt from your old purchases that are eligible for this settlement, Burger King will still give those customers who fill out the claim for a gift card for their restaurant worth $2.00.
