Sonic Data Breach, You Could Get a Rebate if You Made a Purchase in 2017

Sonic suffered a data breach in 2017. Soon after, lawsuits were filed claiming that Sonic did not have adequate safeguards in place and should be held responsible for the data breach. While Sonic denies these claims in their entirety, they have agreed to settle the lawsuit and compensate those that were affected by the breach.

You are included in the Settlement Class if you reside in the United States and you made a purchase using a credit or debit card at one of the 325 impacted Sonic Drive-In locations from April 7, 2017 through October 28, 2017. You can see the full list of impacted locations here.

Settlement Class Members are divides into two categories.

  • Category 1 – Receive a one-time payment of approximately $10 if you made a purchase using a credit or debit card at one of the 325 impacted Sonic Drive-In locations. Settlement Class Members who file a claim under Category 1 are eligible for the approximately $10 payment even if they did not experience any fraudulent or unauthorized charges subsequent to their purchase at one of the 325 impacted Drive-In locations.
  • Category 2 – Receive a one-time payment of $40 only if you satisfy these conditions:
    • made a purchase using a credit or debit card at one of the 325 impacted Sonic Drive-In locations during the Relevant Time Period (April 7, 2017 through October 28, 2017); and
    • experienced fraudulent or unauthorized charges on the credit or debit card used at the impacted Sonic Drive-In location anytime thereafter through February 28, 2018.

You must file a claim by April 19, 2019 if you are eligible. You can read more details about the settlement here.

To be eligible for a rebate, you must have made a purchase through a Sonic Drive-In between April 7, 2017 and October 28, 2017 with a card. If you think you are affected then file a claim online before the deadline.
