HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – A federal bankruptcy judge has approved a settlement that will reimburse consumers who bought RadioShack gift cards but couldn’t use them before the electronics chain filed for bankruptcy.
Attorney General Kathleen Kane’s office announced the settlement approval Friday. Pennsylvania and other states took legal action after RadioShack filed for bankruptcy earlier this year.
Consumers who paid for RadioShack gift cards will have one year to file a claim for 100 percent reimbursement.
Gift cards may also be redeemed in General Wireless stores for half the purchase price, up to the full amount for RadioShack-branded products. General Wireless bought the RadioShack name and operates stores with the RadioShack name.
Customers in RadioShack’s records will receive a post card or email with instructions for filing a claim, or they can visit www.oldradioshackgiftcard.com.
