Ticketmaster iTunes promo

The largest ticketing company in North America, Ticketmaster, has announced a free music promotion in conjunction with Apple's iTunes Store. Between Memorial Day (May 28th) and Labor Day (September 3rd), every concert ticket purchased will earn one free track from the iTunes Store; additionally, each ticket purchased from Ticketmaster.com will come with a ten-song digital sampler. The exact contents of the sampler are unknown, but the company aims to promote a mix of new as well as more familiar artists.

    This started a while ago

    I purchased tickets on TicketMaster about 10 days ago and got 2 free songs (1 per ticket) plus a free 10 song sampler.

    News now?

    WTF, I got songs from them over a month ago. Way to stay on top of things and fact check, MacNN!

    Then Tell Us!

    It's news, because I didn't know about it. If you knew a month ago, why didn't you write a story for MacNN about it? And don't use the "I don't have access to the major media" excuse!

    What, exactly, does this 'old' news have to do with fact checking?

    And if you look at the link, the Press Release specifically mentions the dates above, which, in turn, is what's reported. Perhaps you're free tickets are part of a separate promotion, already expired or set to expire shortly?

    Maybe...

    Maybe it was to test customer reaction to the promo before going fully public and setting a specific time frame. Though, i do agree macnn tends to have old, and sometimes inaccurate "news". Sometimes they have headlines like "refurb ___ available from apple. This isn't news. If people want a refurb mac or ipod, you can bet they check every single day on their own. This is annoying, because i used to greatly appreciate being informed via macnn, now i see all its news bits somewhere else first, or things that are not really news at all.

    Refund

    Interesting. Think of it as a 99-cent refund for their exorbitant "convenience" and "processing" fees.
