Abercrombie & Fitch faces class action over expired gift cards

Plaintiffs say the cards had no expiration date, store claims it was printed on a sleeve around the card

Abercrombie & Fitch, the clothing company that is the very height of fashion at middle schools across the nation, is facing a class action lawsuit from customers who claim the store failed to honor holiday gift cards with “no expiration date.”

The suit stems from a December 2009 promotion, which offered $25 gift cards for every $100 a customer spent in a single purchase. Abercrombie claims the cards were encased in sleeves with the expiration date Jan. 30, 2010. The retailer stopped accepting them on that date, denying uncounted furious tweens the chance to walk around with the company logo emblazoned on their chests.
