Free concert tix on Ticketmaster? It sounds too good to possibly be true. However, thanks to a class action lawsuit against Ticketmaster that was settled last month, the site is handing out ticket vouchers to a select number of events, and if you are wondering how to tell if you have free Ticketmaster vouchers, you have come to the right place.
Let me back up and explain the lawsuit first, though. During the adjudication of Curt Schlesinger et al. v. Ticketmaster, several of Ticketmaster's fees were deemed unrelated to the services provided. What the decision means is that if you bought a ticket from Ticketmaster's website between Oct. 21, 1999, and Feb. 27, 2013, you could actually be a plaintiff in the case, and are eligible for benefits from Ticketmaster itself. It's being reported that 50 million people made purchases through the Ticketmaster site during this time, so there's a fairly good chance you're one of them.
Those benefits come in the form of vouchers to LiveNation concerts, which currently include events like Sigur Rós, The Lumineers, Keith Urban, and Florida Georgia Line performances. If you log in to your Ticketmaster account and check under active vouchers, you should see coupon codes redeemable for free tickets.
Ticketmaster says it'll be updating the list of eligible events, so keep checking your account. Who knows what might pop up on that list? You get one free voucher for each ticket purchased during the time window mentioned above, so treat your dad to a belated Father's Day present or something.
In addition, Ticketmaster is also offering a host of coupon codes that will reduce the total price of ticket purchases. You can receive up to 17 of these, and although they're not worth very much ($2.25, to be exact), they could come in handy if you frequent the site. Especially because you can stack the codes.
Good luck trying to nab those tickets!
