Ticketmaster settled in a class action lawsuit that could result many users of the popular ticket purchasing site receiving voucher codes for free tickets.
The company recently agreed to pay $386 million to settle the lawsuit that was filed more than a decade ago. The plaintiffs in the case claimed that some of the Ticketmaster's fees were misleading.
Do the deceptive terms of the fees, people who have used Ticketmaster between October 21, 1999 and February 27, 2013, could be eligible for tickets to a Live Nation event.
Starting now, voucher codes will be automatically added to Ticketmaster accounts.
"You may have recently received an email regarding the Schlesinger v. Ticketmaster Class Action Settlement because you are a Class Member who may be entitled to Ticket Codes as part of the Settlement," read a statement on Live Nation's website. "Once 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. These '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."
Each event on the list is allotted only so many "free tickets," once those tickers for the event have been claimed ticket codes will not be applicable. According to settlement documents, as of now Ticket Codes will need to be used on or before June 18, 2020
The official settlement website says where a list of events that the tickets codes may be redeemed for is located, the events have not been finalized yet, and there is no list. But, those with codes should for when the list is posted.
Ticketmaster users who think they're elligibale for the voucher codes should anticipate receiving them around June 18, 2016. Codes will be redeemable for two tickets for concert events at Live Nation owned venues.
