FREE concert tickets from Ticketmaster: Check your account


One of my concert-going friends emailed today and said “Check your Ticketmaster account — you may have free concert tickets!”

Ticketmaster recently settled a class-action lawsuit over “deceptive and excessive” ticketing fees charged between 1999 and 2013. If you bought concert tickets during this timespan, Ticketmaster is responding by offering free concert tickets and ticket discounts to you. You’ll find them when you log into your Ticketmaster account and select “Active Vouchers.”

I’m not 100% sure how your reward of free tickets is determined, but I have eleven free pairs of tickets to shows of my choice through 6/18/20:


I also have eleven $2.25 discounts toward future ticket purchases. The free pairs of tickets are only good on “eligible events,” which means LiveNation-owned venues that presumably haven’t sold out of seats yet. (Ticketmaster will release an eligible list of shows at this link soon.)

At any rate, if you’ve used Ticketmaster at some point over the past fourteen years, log into and see what you’ve got!


UPDATE: Ticketmaster has apparently pulled the discounts & vouchers from everyone’s accounts and will return them once the list of eligible shows is posted online.

    Thank you for this! I never would have looked at my account for this and certainly didn’t receive any notice from Ticketmaster (gotta love that Livenation!) I thought I had 5 and 5 (discounts and freebies) but it turns out I have 5 PAIR of freebies! Nice! Also nice is that these don’t expire until 2020!

    Thank you!

      No problem! I too received no notice – a friend told me this afternoon, and I was pleasantly surprised.

      Hopefully, the list of “approved” shows will have some artists that I actually want to see :)

    I keep getting a message that the site is experiencing difficulties. Have you heard of anyone else experiencing this? Thanks!

    I got an email from Schlesinger v. Ticketmaster Class Action Settlement – Notice Regarding Discount and Ticket Codes
    and it explained the 3 different types of codes that there are.
    Discount codes, UPS codes and Ticket codes.
    I can post more info if you want

    The link is active with the free concert tickets. Nothing in the Chicago area or IL for that matter. Not sure how worthwhile it is to use free concert tickets but have to pay for hotel and travel.

    I guess I can use the 11 $2.25 credits for something at least.
