If you like good odds, lend us your ear, because we’ve got fifty million reasons why you should keep listening.
A big, fat lawsuit against Ticketmaster (also known as Curt Schlesinger et al. vs. Ticketmaster) was just settled, and it’s gonna cost them around $400 million. Why? Because of those shitty processing fees that anger and confuse us all for a split second, until we pay them and move on. UNTIL NOW.
The Order Processing Fee, (or in layman’s terms, money for nothing), was ruled as being nothing more than a profit generator for Ticketmaster, which means they now have to pay up big. In this pickpocketing world of shipping costs, airline added extras, credit card fees and decades old late fees at the local video store, this is a David vs. Goliath day of triumph.
If you were one of the 50 million people who bought a ticket with your Ticketmaster account between October 21, 1999 and February 27, 2013 (likely) you could be eligible for free tickets and/or discount codes. To see if you’re one of them, click here and stick it to the man. If they’ve been cheeky and the link doesn’t work, you can just log into your Ticketmaster account and go to the section called ‘Active Vouchers.’
As well as discounts, if you’ve been given ticket codes you can use these to get ‘free tickets.’ But you’ll have to be quick, because these are on a first come, first served basis. The list of events you you can get free tickets to will be regularly updated.
