What is The Smashburger Class Action?

A $4 Million Class Action Settlement has been agreed upon with SmashBurger over allegations of false and misleading advertising. Smashburger is a fast food chain of hamburger restaurants founded in 2007 that operates restaurants in 35 U.S. states. As of 2018, Smashburger had over 220 restaurants in operation.

The class action settlement will establish a $2.5 Million cash fund as well as 1.5 Million vouchers to consumers who were affected by misleading ads on the part of Smashburger. The Smashburger class action lawsuit alleged that a 2017 marketing campaign marketed their burgers as having "three times" the cheese, and "twice the beef". The claim in the class action lawsuit is that Smashburger misrepresented burgers that were called "triple doubles" such as the "Triple Double" and the "Bacon Triple Double" burgers. Affected customers will be able to claim either a cash reward or vouchers for products that qualify.

What Can I Get From the Smashburger Settlement?

If you qualify, you may be entitled for one of the following two rewards:

• Either a $4.00 cash reward for each eligible hamburger or cheeseburger you purchased from Smashburger. The maximum cash allotment per household is a $20.00 payout, however the final payout may be lower if larger volumes of claims are filed than initially expected;

• Alternatively, consumers who qualify can elect to receive up to 10 vouchers (one for each eligible Smashburger purchase). The voucher will be redeemable at Smashburger locations for either for a single beef hamburger upgrade to a double beef hamburger, or for an additional small fountain drink at no additional cost, if you purchase a regular entrée.

No proof of purchase is required at this time in order to file a claim. However, note that the class action administrator has time to contest any claims it deems invalid, fraudulent or untimely. If you file a claim you are electronically swearing via a statement, sworn to under penalty of perjury attesting to the fact that you purchased one or more of the eligible Smashburger products during the time specified below.
