Because of a proposed class action settlement, Ticketmaster is being forced to credit $1.50 per ticket order (up to 17 orders) to customers due to the fact that they profited off of “processing fees” without declaring as much.
And despite the reparations, Ticketmaster can continue to profit off transactions — they just have to say they’re doing so on their website.
According to court documents, the original claim, filed October 21, 2003, also implicates UPS’ delivery price for expedited delivery of tickets as deceptive. Those part of the UPS subclass of the suit are entitled to an additional $5.00 credit per ticket. Both credits are in the form of vouchers, which can be redeemed a maximum of two at a time.
Sooooo you’re telling us that we can only redeem $3 of vouchers at a time? (Assuming we never bought expedited shipping) Great, now I only have to go to 8.5 overpriced events in order to fully utilize the $22.50 windfall I’m getting for being overcharged at every event I’ve been to in the past decade!
