Ticketmaster's Class-Action Lawsuit Settlement Means Free Concert Tix For You (Maybe)

Here's how to get them.

Ticketmaster is out around $400 million thanks to a class-action settlement over exorbitant ticket fees, but their loss might mean a big win for you.

According to the settlement, if you bought tickets through the service between Oct. 21, 1999, and Feb. 27, 2013, you might be entitled to ticket codes allowing you to claim two free general admission tickets. Ticketmaster, which is owned by Live Nation, reportedly began alerting members via email over the weekend that they were able to claim their ticket codes.

2. Find a concert or event you want to attend. 

3. Go through the usual steps to buy tickets, then add in your code for a discount or free ticket. 

Of course, there are a few caveats to the codes and events you can attend. According to Live Nation, you can only redeem the tickets for a concert at a Live Nation venue and only on a first-come, first-served basis.
