Millions of Ticketmaster users are getting free tickets today because of a 13-year-old lawsuit.
Last month, Ticketmaster finally settled on a $400 million class action lawsuit over Ticketmaster's outrageous fees. Announced last week, Ticketmaster has began alerting its customers through the Ticketmaster website and said that most of their customers will get “at least one” ticket code in their accounts which can be redeemed for 2 GA tickets to different selected events.
Any customer who purchased a ticket through Ticketmaster's website between October 21, 1999 and February 27, 2013 is eligible to receive an online code for discounts on future ticket purchases.
The suit has affected about 50 million people who bought tickets on Ticketmaster.
