StubHub updated their policy today. Instead of full refunds for canceled events, they changed it to a COUPON worth 20% more than the value of the ticket. As pointed out by @don_shano, this is not only absurd (fans deserve their $ back), it’s unethical and likely illegal. pic.twitter.com/onFRrGVh6S— Darren Rovell (@darrenrovell) March 28, 2020
Nothing makes me happier than knowing that TicketMaster, LiveNation, StubHub and Vivid Seats are losing copious amounts of money due to the quarantine.— blake💫 (@PlsBlake) April 1, 2020
Possibly the only good thing to come out of this situation.
ATTN: @stubhub and @Mets - I purchased 5 tickets for the March 28th game that obviously did not take place due to COVID-19. I do not want a120% credit for the canceled purchase. I want a full refund. If you ever want me to use #StubHub again, give me my full refund NOW! Thanks!— Max Margulis (@MaxsAllStars) March 31, 2020
i will NEVER order from @StubHub again, selfish fucks. People need the money you’re holding onto. Also, if the @NBA could just say the season is “cancelled” you’d make a lot of lives much better. Losing fans by the second, smh.— Payton ❣️ (@pay_riley) March 25, 2020
I can’t wait until the lawyers sue you into oblivion in a class action lawsuit for your unethical and dishonest behavior. Refund people’s money. They bought tickets with promise of money back if the event does not occur.— W79 (@Waa1207) March 31, 2020
How is this legal? When we bought the tickets we had money back guarantee. How do fight this?— DeeLight (@PhanPhriendly) March 31, 2020
