Ticketmaster to issue vouchers in class-action lawsuit over excessive fees

By AnnArbor.com Staff

Think the fees at ticket-selling giant Ticketmaster are outrageous?

A court has now agreed—up to a point.

MLive.com reports on the proposed settlement of a class-action lawsuit over high processing fees. Anyone who bought tickets from Ticketmaster between Oct. 21, 1999, and Oct. 19 of this year will get a partial refund—but only $1.50 per order, and only in the form of a voucher for future purchases.

The story fails to mention that while you can collect multiple vouchers due to past purchases, you'll only be able to use them 2 at a time, for a whopping $3.00 off your ticket purchase... that doesn't even cover the fees on a single ticket.

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.
