Concertgoers who received credits or vouchers in their Ticketmaster accounts following the resolution of a class action lawsuit can redeem them at more than three dozen upcoming shows in Atlanta.
Earlier this week, Ticketmaster deposited the credits and/or vouchers in the accounts of all consumers who transacted on Ticketmaster.com between 1999 and 2013. The 2003 lawsuit Schlesinger vs. Ticketmaster alleged that the company failed to fully disclose to consumers all aspects of its UPS and order processing fees. The case was settled in 2013 and the court granted final approval in February 2015.
As a result of the settlement, Ticketmaster provided eligible parties with a $2.25 credit on the future purchase of primary tickets for each transaction during the 1999-2013 period (up to 17 claims).
Additionally, a $5 UPS voucher was made available to those who used UPS delivery during that period (also up to 17 claims).
And finally, Ticketmaster is providing $5 million in ticket vouchers for select Live Nation concerts through May 2017 (capped at 17 claims per account). Because of the interest in these tickets, the company is increasing its allotment to $10 million through May 2017. The potential for additional tickets will be based on the redemption rates of the discount and UPS vouchers.
Tickets to the Atlanta shows below are eligible for voucher redemption (you can check out the national list here). Keep in mind that vouchers can only be used for general admission (i.e., lawn) seats. While all of the participating venues offer lawn seating, there is the possibility that those tickets are already sold out.
To redeem your voucher(s) (found in your Ticketmaster account under “vouchers”): Visit this website for easy access to the list of applicable shows (the list will change based on availability). Then, once on the billing page during your transaction, look for the “voucher code” link and enter your code to receive the discount.
