Changes in Ticket Company’s Refund Policy Under Fire

StubHub’s new refund policy in the U.S. and Canada has come under scrutiny since the company announced changes early in the pandemic.

For canceled events, instead of refunds, the company defaulted to offering credits worth 120% of the customers’ original order. Since the policy change, lawsuits have been filed against the company along with consumer complaints.

Florida’s Attorney General’s Office has received 17 refund-related StubHub complaints since the beginning of the pandemic. A spokesperson from the AG’s office told us their office escalated all of the complaints to StubHub and so far $690 has been refunded to consumers for canceled events.

The pandemic has forced concerts to cancel across the country, but one woman says she can’t get a refund from a popular online ticket broker, despite the event being postponed for two years. NBC 6’s Sasha Jones reports.
