Rant about Ticketmaster

Just tried to book some tickets for a show using my gift cards that ok we have had for a while they have just told me that they have expired and not valid, they told me that they are only valid for 12mths from date of purchase i have stated that when i take money out of my bank it doesnt tell me i have to spend it by a certain date. things like this really annoy me they are scamming people.....

Call them, they'll probably reissue if you make a fuss.

check the website,clearly says they expire after 12mths

not really a scam is it?


unwarranted rant

most gift cards have an expiry date, 12 months is quite long for most

They are scammers.....I just booked tickets for Disney on ice...£15.50 a ticket! Not too bad...but then they charge £2.50 PER TICKET handling and another £1.75 to post it!!! Rip off!!!!!!!!!

Seeing as above, you really should read terms and conditions before buying.

appreciate that however when they did normal paper gift vouchers they never had an expiry date then companies introduced the card gift voucher and they give you a limit to spend your money i appreciate companies have T&C's however i dont believe they should instruct you when you should spend your gift card

it sure does

next there will be folk complaining that they bought Wacko Jacko briefs on eBay for 4 times the face value and wont be getting a refund!

I really cannot see the point of gift cards/vouchers - just give people the money.

not sure i follow to be honest

why should there be anything wrong? the OP is ranting because of a prblem of their own making and then trying to use an argument that holds no water to back up their claims

judging by the OP, i am not the one with anything wrong

If there's no expiry on the gift card it's not really a problem of their own making is it???

And the question more referred to the constant gloating, there'll be a lot of happy people on here the day you get caught out with something...... :whistling:
