In 2016, Safeway shoppers in Oregon filed a lawsuit against Albertsons, the grocery store chain’s parent company, over pricing on buy-one-get-one (BOGO) sales on meat. The shoppers accused Safeway of violating state law by raising the price of meat products that were eventually sold under “Buy One, Get One Free” and “Buy One, Get Two Free” promotions. Safeway deceived customers into thinking they were getting a good deal under the promotions, when in fact the prices were hiked before the sale.
