If you’ve been following this thread from last month, or if you really stay on top of the email address you used in 1999, you might have noticed that you’re potentially entitled to some free concert tickets from Ticketmaster.
If you purchased tickets through Ticketmaster between October 21, 1999 and February 27, 2013, you probably have some discount codes waiting for you in your account. It looks like each discount code is only for $2.25, but when I checked my account I had 17 of them, which is the max anyone can get. Later on, 17 ticket vouchers were added as well. If you have trouble getting the vouchers to load, keep trying. I had to wait a few hours because 50 million people are potentially part of this settlement, so the Ticketmaster site is probably experiencing traffic overload.
To see if you have any codes, log in to your account and go to this page.
It’s possible you also see $5 off vouchers for UPS shipping costs if you ever ordered tickets and had them delivered via UPS. You get a $5 voucher per eligible transaction (up to 17 vouchers).
The downside is you can only redeem up to two $2.25 vouchers and two $5 UPS vouchers per purchase, so the most you’ll be able to save per purchase is only $14.50.
Lastly, if you made a purchase during the dates above, you will be eligible for ticket vouchers for two free tickets per voucher to specific events, which will be selected by Ticketmaster. The first round of free tickets have already been released and redeemed, but Ticketmaster is making another $5 million worth of ticket vouchers available for events through May 2017. These will be available on a first come, first serve basis.
A list of shows you can use the ticket vouchers for can be found at Live Nation. The tickets are only good for General Admission. Unsurprisingly, there are very few artists whose concerts are included among the list of events the ticket vouchers can be used for. So unless you get excited about going to see The String Cheese Incident or Slipknot, don’t get your hopes up.
