Ticketmaster settlement: Everyone who bought tickets could receive a rebate

After several years of litigation, a settlement against Ticketmaster for imposing surcharges on customers without their knowledge has finally been ruled upon.  Beginning next year, everyone who bought a ticket through their online or retail stores could receive accumulated credits towards ticket purchases.

Because of a proposed class action settlement, Ticketmaster is being forced to credit $1.50 per ticket order (up to 17 orders) to customers due to the fact that they profited off of "processing fees" without declaring as much.
And despite the reparations, Ticketmaster can continue to profit off transactions — they just have to say they're doing so on their website. – Yahoo Finance

A boon for concert goers indeed, but the question remains... who kept their receipts going back a decade or more?
