Get Your Claim on Money Back for International Purchases

This rebate for international purchases was posted previously, but its probably worth repeating given the deadline is May 1, 2008 [extended to May 30, 2008]. A class action settlement is being proposed for those people who used their credit cards for international purchases

Members of Settlement Class
Anyone who used a Visa, MasterCard, AmericanExpress, Diners Club brand credit, charge or debit card between February 1, 1996 and November 8, 2006.

File for Claim
Submit your claim via mail, fax, or online at

Option 1: EZ Claim for $25. Even if you strapped for time, submit the claim with Option 1 to at least put your claim in for $25. Option 1 is recommend for those individuals who made less than $2,500 in foreign transactions or traveled outside the US for less than one week during the claim period.

Option 2:A Total Estimated Refund for those that travelled internationally for more than 1 week to estimate your total travel during the class period.

Option 3: An Annual Estimated Refund option if you made some big transactions or traveled extensively during the class action period and are willing to provide annual information on your international transactions.

I submitted my claim using Option #2 for 130+ days outside the US. I didn't realize I had spent so much time previously outside the US till I added it all up.

As a reminder the due date for submission is May 1, 2008 [extended to May 30, 2008].
