Getting concert tickets this summer just got a lot cheaper.
You might have noticed an email in your inbox titled "Schlesinger v. Ticketmaster Class Action Settlement – Notice Regarding Discount and Ticket Codes." It's not a hoax. This is an email you'll want to read.
The company has been overcharging its customers with "excessive and deceptive" order processing fees for 14 years and now it's paying retribution - all $45 million of it.
Ticketmaster, of course, denies the claims, but is issuing free tickets and vouchers as part of its settlement.
If you went to a Ticketmaster or LiveNation concert between October 21, 1999 and February 27, 2013, you should, eventually, see a code for at least two general admission tickets to certain, "selected" events.
As of press time, however, the Ticketmaster site had not yet posted eligible events. Although the official Ticketmaster Twitter has been responding to concerned tweets with "The list of events is still being finalized. Keep checking this link for details."
Hey! The list of events is still being finalized. Keep checking this link for details! https://t.co/DAQZPdq5oF Thanks!

Next, you'll want to go to your Account page and click on "Active Vouchers." Mine was empty when I checked, but that's where your codes should show up when Ticketmaster finalizes its list.
