Lawsuit Filed Against Amazon Alleges That Prime Subscribers Pay False Discount Prices

Amazon.com Inc. is facing a class action lawsuit claiming its posted Amazon Prime discounts are not discounts from a real price. Instead, plaintiffs contend, Amazon.com posts a false price that was not consistently used and then discounts from that price instead.

The proposed class includes any Amazon customer who purchased a discounted product with a price of $500 or more where the original price posted was not used for at least six months of the previous year.

Lead plaintiff Ben Kinney claims he purchased an LG television on Amazon that was priced at $1,496.99, marked down from $2,499.99, and tagged as “40% off.” After the purchase, the price on the television then changed to $2,199 and stated “$700 off,” according to the class action.
