LOS ANGELES >> Amway has agreed to redeem more than $20 million in gift cards to settle a lawsuit by consumers in Hawaii and 25 other states claiming they improperly included a redemption date.

Lawyers who filed the lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court announced the settlement this week. 

The suit accused Amway and two related companies of misrepresentation. It claimed that beginning in 2005, consumers bought Amway gift cards carrying redemption dates that could have been interpreted as illegal expiration dates. 

The suit claims many people threw away the cards, believing they had expired.

Under the settlement, consumers must file claims by June 20th to receive non-dated replacements worth at least $50. 

Michigan-based Amway — a leading seller of vitamins, cosmetics and cleaning products — did not acknowledge wrongdoing.
