I was at the supermarket today, waiting in line at the checkout behind a woman. When the cashier asked her if she had a preferred customer card, the woman sternly said “No, but you will give me the discount price anyway because PCC’s are an illegal rebate under the (some guy’s name)-(some other guy’s name) act.” Sorry I don’t remember the act she quoted, I think it was Roberts-something or something like that. Anyway, the cashier pulled out a new card and grudgingly swiped that.
So, are these cards legal? I don’t see why several major supermarket chains would do something illegal so openly, or why no lawyers have started a class-action lawsuit yet.
