Ticketmaster settlement: Are you eligible for free tickets?

Consumers will receive vouchers for tickets bought online over 13-year period


If you bought tickets on Ticketmaster.com from Oct. 21, 1999 to Feb. 27, 2013, you may be eligible for free tickets.

The result stems from the Schlesinger v. Ticketmaster Class Action Settlement from 2013. This is different from the lawsuit that was settled with the company in 2016.

Ticketmaster has agreed to provide one discount code to each class member for every purchase made on Ticketmaster.com during the 13-year period. The code is worth $2.25 off a future purchase of primary tickets and are available up to 17 discount codes per person.

Ticketmaster will provide one $5 UPS discount code for every purchase made on Ticketmaster.com that included UPS delivery, with up to 17 UPS discount codes per person for class members during the period specified in the settlement.

Some of the tickets could be redeemable for two eligible general admission tickets for select events at Live Nation-owned or operated venues. Ticketmaster asks consumers to be aware of the limited availability and high demand of the tickets. 

The available tickets for the 200 available events are in markets such as Tampa, Miami and West Palm Beach, Fla. Consumers can access their discounted codes here.
