Discounts on Newegg.com
2016: The trial court dismissed the complaint concluding that the named plaintiff did not have standing because he received the product at the price he agreed to pay and suffered no injury.
2014: A class-action lawsuit was filed against the online retailer Newegg.com for allegedly deceptively advertising “grossly overstated” purported savings on products – such as electronics, apparel, jewelry, and furniture – on its website by misleadingly comparing a discounted price to an “original” price. According to the plaintiffs, the original price is actually the highest price that the product has ever been sold instead of the prevailing market price or a price that Newegg.com has previously charged for the item.
