Customer sues BP over a carwash code

February 21, 2012

MINNEAPOLIS — A customer filed a class action lawsuit here against BP America Inc. due to a carwash code, according to NACS Online.

The Feb. 21 story stated that the customer claims she was sold an illegally short carwash access code last November. After the plaintiff purchased the code, she was unable to use it immediately due to either long lines at the station or cold weather.

The customer tried to use the code over one month after it was purchased, but the code had expired the week prior, the story noted.

The plaintiff’s attorney said in the story that Minnesota law prohibits any expiration of certificates redeemable for pre-paid goods and services within five years of the purchase date.
