If you are one of the 50 million people who purchased tickets via Ticketmaster between October 21, 1999 and February 27, 2013, you likely have some free or discounted tickets coming your way. Thanks to the $400 million dollar class action lawsuit between Curt Schlesinger and the ticket conglomerate, fans are now able to get back some of the extra fees Ticketmaster is guilty of tacking on to purchases.
To access your tickets, simply log in to your account on Ticketmaster.com and click “Active Vouchers” on the bottom left side of the screen. There you will see how many discount codes are available to you. According to settlement agreement, “Ticket codes are made available to you in your Ticketmaster account, you may attempt to use your Ticket Codes to claim ‘free tickets’ identified as available for redemption on this website.”
The site also states that the “free tickets” are “available on a first-come, first-served basis and may not be available for redemption if others have claimed them before you.”
The list of eligible events will be periodically updated and users are encouraged to sign up for a email notifications when new events become available.
