Microsoft may owe you $100 if you bought from the Microsoft Store

Microsoft has settled a class-action lawsuit regarding sales at its Microsoft Store outlets. And if you made a purchase at one of those stores, you might be owed as much as $100.

The lawsuit alleged that Microsoft Store receipts contained too much information. The lead plaintiff’s receipt listed the buyer’s name, the name of the salesperson and the first six and last four digits of the buyer’s payment card number—more than half the numbers on the card. 

According to the 2003 U.S. Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act (FACTA), retailers may print only the last five numbers of a payment card on the receipt. Retailers had until 2006 to comply with this restriction, and the Microsoft Stores are much newer than that.
