Within 2 days of receiving your notice, the seller may choose to refund to you

the difference between the amount charged and the price displayed, plus a bonus of 10 times the difference, with a maximum of $5. If the seller refuses to give you both the refund and the bonus, you may bring a lawsuit to recover your actual damages or $250, whichever is greater, plus reasonable attorney fees up to $300.

If you bring a lawsuit and can prove violations of the law occurred on separate occasions, you may recover your actual damages or $250, whichever is greater, for each day on which violations of the law are found. If you purchase several identical items at once and were overcharged on each, you may collect the bonus only once, but you are entitled to the refund of the difference for each identical item. If you decide to bring a lawsuit against the seller, you can choose to file a complaint in a Small Claims Court without an attorney.
