A Florida man is suing Sunoco Inc., alleging the corporation did not honor his Sunoco rewards credit card discount.

Donald White, on behalf of himself and others similarly situated, filed a lawsuit Aug. 14 in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against Sunoco Inc. of Philadelphia, alleging false and deceptive representations about the benefits of being a Sunoco rewards credit card cardholder.

According to the complaint, Sunoco guarantees cardholders a 5-cent per gallon discount on every fuel transaction at any Sunoco location. Sunoco markets motor fuels in 26 states, including Pennsylvania and Florida.

The suit states in January, White’s discount was not applied at the pump to his purchase of gasoline at a Sunoco location. The suit says White reached out to customer service and was told the discount would be applied after-the-fact on his statement. White alleges the discount was not applied on his February statement. The lawsuit says the plaintiff called customer service Feb. 26 and was told “not all stations honor the discount.”

White seeks monetary damages, restitution, declaratory relief and injunctive relief. He is represented by attorneys Richard M. Golomb, Ruben Honik, Kenneth J. Grunfeld and David J. Stanoch of Golomb & Honik in Philadelphia.

U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania case number 2:15-cv-04595.
