Paypal: In December 2021, PayPal started offering a coupon of R$ 50 for online purchases on several websites and services that accept the payment platform. Then, the company suspended the discount and withdrew the benefit from the accounts that had already redeemed the coupon. Fortunately, it all worked out in the end.
Last Monday (17), after receiving a notification from the São Paulo Consumer Protection and Defense Program (Procon-SP), PayPal began to return the R$ 50 coupon to users who had redeemed it in December previous year — the payment platform could be fined up to BRL 11 million if it did not solve the problem of the affected consumers.
“This amount will automatically be applied to your next eligible purchase when you complete a PayPal purchase,” the company said.
Fortunately, dozens of PayPal users have confirmed that the coupon is back in their wallets, which is why the company was even one of the most talked about topics on Twitter.
