If you’ve seen posts floating around telling you that you’ve got free Ticketmaster tickets to claim, it’s totally legit. Due to a huge class action lawsuit that just settled, if you bought tickets between October 21, 1999 and February 27, 2013, you should have free tickets, as well as discounts for tickets, sitting in your account.

I checked just yesterday and found that I have a pair of free tickets, plus a $2.25 discount code, so it’s definitely worth checking, especially if you went to a lot of concerts during those years (which would mean you’ve got more than just a pair like me). Keep in mind that these tickets and discounts can only be used for certain shows that have yet to be announced, but hey, free is free.

Here’s how to check if you’ve got free Ticketmaster tickets

Here's how to check to see if you've got free Ticketmaster tickets

1. Head over to the Ticketmaster active vouchers page (you’ll be prompted to login if you have not already). If you enter via the main Ticketmaster page, you’ll want to go to your account and click on “Active Vouchers” on the bottom right.

2. Then, you’ll see a list of how many free tickets you have available.

3. Below that, you’ll see your discount code.

And, that’s it! If you want to be notified when they’ve listed the concerts that are eligible for these vouchers, you can sign-up via email. I should mention that they’re experiencing a super high volume of visits on the site right now, so be patient.

Also, if there’s a chance that you’ve had multiple emails since 1999 that you may have used, be sure to click the tab that allows you to update your Ticketmaster email address so that any potential correspondence hits your current inbox, and not your old Lycos account.

How many tickets did you have? Tell us in the comments!
