I got an email about this. In the future I will avoid ticketmaster at all cost. But it'll probably cost me a fee to do so.

I will charge a $2.50 collection fee and $1.5 convenience fee per voucher I am entitled to.

We have avoided buying many tickets to events that we would have enjoyed because of the Ticketmaster fees. They lost our business. If they hadn't been so money grubbing they would have received at least some of our money. The venues who use them must lose out on a lot of business from people like us.
