Free tickets you don’t know you have

I was on the Gizmodo site, and I saw this story:

Last month, Ticketmaster settled a $400 million class action lawsuit over its exorbitant fees. This month, they’re paying it out—in the form of discount codes and vouchers. Chances are, you have a free show or two sitting in your inbox.

The suit affects about 50 million people who bought tickets on Ticketmaster between October 21, 1999 and February 27, 2013 and paid the company’s ridiculous overcharges. Emails alerting members of the class started going out last month under the subject, “Schlesinger v. Ticketmaster Class Action Settlement – Notice Regarding Discount and Ticket Codes,” but, contrary to my deepest-held delusions, 1999 was actually a very long time ago and there’s a good chance it’s sitting in an AOL mailbox you haven’t looked at since the band Smash Mouth wrote that Shrek song.

So, since I have a Ticketmaster login, I checked it out, and sure enough, there are vouchers there.

So now I have to figure out what they go to, but it looks like a bunch of them are good until 2020.

I you have an account, you should take a look under “Active Vouchers.”
