If You Used Ticketmaster In The Past 10 Years, You Could Be Getting A Settlement

If You Used Ticketmaster In The Past 10 Years, You Could Be Getting A Settlement

In a potential victory for all of those who loathe Ticketmaster and its various, excessive fees, a class action lawsuit against the company could mean a payout for millions of users.

If you ordered tickets on Ticketmaster's website between October 21, 1999 and October 19, 2011, the settlement would entitle you to $1.50 per ticket for up to 17 tickets, payable as Ticketmaster Credits toward future purchases. 

The lawsuit, Curt Schlesinger et. al v. Ticketmaster, alleges that the company's order processing fees are deceptive, since the company makes a profit off the fees but does not disclose that information. The same goes for the UPS delivery fee imposed by the site. If you ordered your tickets via UPS, you would be entitled to an additional $5.00 credit.

Ticketmaster is disputing the charges, which could obviously cost the site a great deal of money. The settlement still needs to be approved by a judge and the final hearing isn't set until May 29, 2012. Concert-goers keep your fingers crossed.
