Potentially free Ticketmaster Tickets

Recommended Posts

Anyone who has bought tickets from ticketmaster from 1999 - 2013 check your ticketmaster ASAP. I ended up with 6 free vouchers and tons of discount codes.

A $400 million, class-action lawsuit against TicketmasterSchlesinger v. Ticketmaster, was finally settled last month.

The lawsuit accuses Ticketmaster of misrepresenting its fees and overcharging customers who received tickets by mail.

For those who bought tickets between 1999 and 2013, the settlement means they will be receiving vouchers for free and discounted tickets — which can be found in their Ticketmaster account inbox. Each code is redeemable for two tickets, so bring a friend (or a date

The fine print.  Selected concerts and venues are eligible.  The list of concerts in Dallas (House of Blues and Gexa) is....varied in its quality.  And once a limited number of vouchers were redeemed, they pulled the rest.  Because Ticketmaster is only required to disburse 10 million a year in vouchers.

Secondly, things may not be quite as they appear.

It boils down to this: Ticketmaster did not only offer those vouchers. They also released $2.25 and $5 discount codes to be used toward any tickets or any UPS delivery, respectively. The company has to shell out $42 million over four years at no less than $10.5 million a year, but according to Steven Blonder, a leading attorney in the lawsuit, it sent out $386 million in discount codes to about 57 million people.

In other words, the company seems to be banking on the idea that you won’t redeem your code. Because some people have to travel hundreds of miles just to do so, that seems like a pretty safe bet.

The good news is that they updated their settlement redemption page as it now allows you to actually search for events by zipcode.

 

the bad news, everything is "sold out" for voucher use.

 

Terrible way to handle this ticketmaster.

Very typical of large class action suits.  The company is forced to return millions of dollars which they do by offering nearly worthless vouchers while the law firms pocket large portions of the settlement.

Makes sense unfortunately.

 

I was able to grab at least 1 set of free tickets with my vouchers.
