PSA: Check your Ticketmaster account (2017 shows posting soon?)

The awards for the recent Ticketmaster class action settlement were just posted today. Check under "My account" and "View vouchers." The settlement included everyone that has bought a Ticketmaster ticket online all the way back to...1999.

I have 17 pairs of free tickets and 17 vouchers for $2.25 towards a ticket purchase.

I have 17 pair of tix and like 25 coupon codes. Too bad the link for eligible shows is broken right now.

Okay, I got 9 pairs of free tickets, and 9 $2.25 discounts.

I'll be curious to see if the free ones are actually valid for any shows I want to see.....

Re: PSA: Check your Ticketmaster account

Another class action lawsuit needs to be brought against them for not being able to access the list of shows eligible.

I also have 17 2.25 discounts and 17 free tickets. This would have been nice to know before I bought Ghost tickets yesterday.

Re: PSA: Check your Ticketmaster account

How is it going to work with "free" tickets when there are different price tiers at most events?

These are supposed to be general admission tix and a limited amount per show. First come first serve.

I wonder what type of artists will be included. Hopefully good sfuff and not Maroon 5 cover bands and shit like that.

Re: PSA: Check your Ticketmaster account

I have five vouchers and five $2.25 discount codes. Curious what events will be included. I don't just go see anyone as I generally have to travel at least a few hours for shows and so I only go for things I'm really a fan of. I won't be surprised if there's no one I'm interested in seeing.

Re: PSA: Check your Ticketmaster account

Is there some kind of additional requirement to get these vouchers? I've bought tickets from them since 1999, but I don't have anything in my account.

Re: PSA: Check your Ticketmaster account

^I think you had to sign up to participate in the class action lawsuit against. I kinda remember doing it but can't remember when I did it.

I have around 10 tickets and a bunch of the $2.25 discounts. Can you stack the $2.25 discounts or are they just one per ticket or one per concert?

No list for the free tickets yet on my end. I had to sign up and give my email address to get updates.

Re: PSA: Check your Ticketmaster account

I got $15.75 in credits, which might cover the extra fees on one ticket. I'm planning to buy Elvis Costello tickets next week, but I'm buying two tix. Even with $15.75 off, it will be cheaper to buy the tickets at the venue box office, where I'll be paying actual face value with no fees.

I'll be curious to see what shows the free tickets will be eligible for.

Wow. Thanks for the heads-up. I haven't used it in 10 years. Used Ticketmaster for a handful of Weezer and Modest Mouse concerts way-back-when. Will use these to get out.

I don't believe it was necessary to sign up, at least as I understand it:

Nope. I didn't sign up for anything. Just lucky I still remembered my old email.

I wouldn't get your hopes up on what you can use these for. I am already apart of a class action against LN and TM and all I can use my free ticket voucher stuff on is amphitheater style venues that LN operates themselves. The $2 codes you can use on anything though.

Re: PSA: Check your Ticketmaster account

This is one of those class-action settlements that will only benefit the trial lawyers that sued Ticketmaster.

We ripped you off for years, so here is a $2 discount on your next ticket...from us. By the way, ticket surcharges are exactly $2 more this year.
