Harbor Freight owes customers money after settlement

If you have shopped at a Harbor Freight store in the last five years, you may be eligible for a refund.

The suit was brought by Cleveland based Dworken & Bernstein over misleading sale prices. Harbor Freight allegedly advertised merchandise at a "sale" or "compare at" prices, but the goods were never sold at a higher price.

The settlement applied to "qualifying goods" purchased from April 8, 2011 through December 15, 2016.

As part of the settlement reached this week, Harbor Freight will give impacted customers a check or gift card.

If you haven't kept your itemized receipts, you can still submit a claim.

Customers with itemized receipts can submit a claim for a minimum of 20 percent of the "you saved" amount in cash, or 30 percent of that on a gift card.

The western Massachusetts Harbor Freight locations are in West Springfield, Springfield, and Pittsfield. All claims must be submitted by August 7.

If you have a credit card statement showing a Harbor Freight purchase, you can submit copies of the statement and receive 10% of the purchase amount in cash or 12% as a Harbor Freight gift card.
