“No good”

Written on: 14/09/2020 by eddiesergeyev (1 review written)

This company will never give you refund. Show can be rescheduled 10 times and you will not get your money back. You would need to adjust to new schedule. Make sure you understand return policy or even dont deal with vivid seats. Better companies out there. I Do not recommend… Read Full Review

“Concert Cancellation Policy ”

Written on: 05/08/2020 by ReeceStevens187 (1 review written)

I cannot believe this company is an entity that is legally able to continue to operate in this country. A 7 day refund policy for a cancelled event on 7/23 which I purchased tickets for over 7 months ago... is ludicrous. My family is joining a class action lawsuit I suggest everyone does the same… Read Full Review

“Absolutely no help, customer service hangs up on you. ”

Written on: 23/07/2020 by michaelmeinhardt (1 review written)

I purchased tickets to an event that was supposed to happen August 30, 2020. A week ago it came out it was “rescheduled” to September of 2021. Mind you I purchased insurance that was recommended in the case something happened. I was denied my insurance claim. I talked to one person at Vivid that was more than helpful and went above and beyond looking to get me a refund as I’m moving 3000 miles away this September 2020. I am not able to attend the event I planned this year. The second… Read Full Review

“VIVID SEATS SUCKS - NO NOT USE!!!”

Written on: 13/07/2020 by bradscott (1 review written)

I bought tickets for an event that was "put on hold" before the event happened. I called, and asked for a refund AFTER the date of the event (a hockey game). They refused to give me a refund saying the game, "might still be played." I filed a chargeback over a month later with amex. Vivid Seats argued my chargeback and gave me a store credit that would expire by December 2020. As you know, due to covid-19, all events have been canceled, and there might not be another even by the end of the… Read Full Review

“Customer Service”

Written on: 22/06/2020 by 454Power (1 review written)

I bought tickets to a concert through vivid seats that was cancelled due to covid 19. However due to all that is going on and some family issues, I did not see the mail that said I had to respond within 7 days to get a refund. As a result, they issued a voucher for a future concert. When I called customer service to ask for an exception, they unequivocally refused. I was not allowed to speak to a supervisor and the csr was obviously reading from a script. In a time when so many things are… Read Full Review

“Refuses to Provide Refund!”

Written on: 20/06/2020

On December 24, 2019, I purchased two Los Angeles Lakers NBA tickets for a game to be held on March 28, 2020. Due to COVID-19, this event was cancelled. I was contacted on June 6, 2020, indicating that I had 7 days to respond or I would not receive a cash refund. During this global pandemic, it is easy to miss emails and I did not see this email until June 19, 2020, which is outside of the 7-day window. However, I contacted their customer support on June 19, 2020 indicating that I would like… Read Full Review

event was cancelled back in the March. STILL waiting for refund. I can't even get a hold of someone live to inquire about refund. Phone number is a joke. emailing is a joke. And VIVID SEATS is sitting on my ticket payment. If I could give no stars I would. I would never recommend this site to anyone… Read Full Review

I’m literally having the same issues with them and I’m annoyed. The customer service line is a complete joke and for there to not be a refund option about an event that’s been purchased and the date has come and gone is ridiculous. Thennn the fact that the artist I paid to see isn’t even giving updates on it is beyond me

“DO NOT purchase Tickets here!”

Written on: 28/05/2020 by nanettenerio (1 review written)

I am completely floored on VividSeats during this Covid19 time. I purchased Dodger tickets back in February for a game in May. The game obviously didnt happen so I asked for a refund. They said they will only give refund if the game was cancelled. So even if the game is postponed till next year, they will keep your money and you have to wait till then. This company does not realize that people are hurting right now and need any little money they can get. They have no compassion and just keep… Read Full Review

“I can't figure out what sucks more, COVID-19 or...”

Written on: 26/05/2020 by amcleavy (1 review written)

Lets cut to the chase. COVID-19 has taken a terrible toll on the Entertainment Industry. There is no negating that. VIVID, like many other companies have undoubtedly been hit hard with the cancellation of shows. It is in these challenging times where a company has to make a decision. Do we do what's right by our customers, or do we do what's in our best interest. Unfortunately, VIVID sided with the latter, in a horrible fashion that included a double negative email chain, a Customer Service IVR… Read Full Review

“Never do business with vivid ”

Written on: 12/05/2020 by GCOOPER1105 (1 review written)

Do NOT do business with Vivid.. They have hands down the WORST customer service. My event was canceled and I fought them for 2 months and then instead of refunding my money as I requested multiple times. They get me a credit and are refusing to give me my refund. I have spent numerous occasions on hold for over 2 hrs just for them to refuse my request of a refund. I have saved all correspondence with vivid and I have contacted legal counsel… Read Full Review

“Refund not done as promised so far”

Written on: 06/05/2020

I've been contacting several times the customer service since my event was cancelled in March and I chose to have the money back instead of a 110 % credit. The said that the money would be in my account in 2 to 4 weeks, It's been almost 2 months now and nothing. And my last messages, the customer service doesn't respond anymore. It was the first time and the last I use their service. Deplorable… Read Full Review

“Worst customer service”

Written on: 05/05/2020 by wendiwms7 (1 review written)

I have been contacting vivid seats since my event was cancelled in March and was told I was going to get my full 100% refund instead of the 110% credit because that is what I wanted, but they eventually said I would not get my refund without contacting me. I never received an email...nothing. I had to contact them to get this information. They were not helpful at all. They did not do what they said they would do. I will not use them again and would not recommend them at all… Read Full Review

“My concert to see Elton John on 4/6/2020 was...”

Written on: 29/04/2020 by Jones267 (1 review written)

My concert to see Elton John on 4/6/2020 was "postponed TBD", today is 4/29/2020 and is still "postponed TBD" Vivid Seats said they will not issue a refund until the concert is announced "cancelled" yet the concert is well overdue due to covid-19. My point being is, how long does this company expect you to wait for a concert to go to "cancelled" status in order to issue a refund. Obviously the concert is cancelled if it's over a month the date of the concert was supposed to occur. They are… Read Full Review

“Refund for cancelled event”

Written on: 25/04/2020 by CollinChandler61 (1 review written)

The event was cancelled a month ago.I get an e mail saying that they will give 110% value as a credit instead of cash. After multiple attempts when I got through very reluctantly they said they will refund my money but did not want to commit when it will be refunded.It could be months?? No idea when? The person I talked to was absolutely rude . I would not employ a person like her even if she worked for free for me. This is the kind of service Vivid seats provides. They want your money but when… Read Full Review

“Customer Service Awful”

Written on: 16/04/2020 by DerrickStafford486 (1 review written)

I am very disappointed in Vivid Seats! I ordered tickets in January for a show date of March 28. When I purchased the tickets, it was prior to the Coronavirus pandemic. When I contacted Vivid Seats in regards to the matter, I was ignored. 

I understand the terms & conditions, however, it was written and enforced prior to this unprecedented event. The show was rescheduled for August. I cannot attend that date, nor did I purchase that date due to a previous scheduled engagement. 

When I contacted

“Couldn't produce tickets”

Written on: 12/06/2019 by RhondaT (1 review written)

Bought 2 tickets for a June 15, 2019 concert on Dec. 15 2018 as a Xmas present for my daughter. The receipt said tickets would be transferred on June 9. No tickets on June 9! Called Customer Service and they said tickets were transferred on Dec. 15. I looked through all my email and no ticket transfer from Vivid. They said to watch my email they would have the seller resend tickets. I watched email for 4 days -- called each day for 4 days and all they could say was that they have asked the… Read Full Review

My event was cancelled and rescheduled, but they refused to give me a refund. The people at customer service were incompetent and were no help at all.

“Buyer Beware of Vivid Seats”

Written on: 19/04/2019

10 days before Phantom, I searched online for (2) tickets. Of course, Vivid Seats popped up in the search results. I had not used them before so I thought maybe I’d get a deal! I wanted decent seats based on price. Seats for $200 or more, each, were available. I chose seats located orchestra right SOMEWHERE BETWEEN ROW A AND ROW UU. Essentially the entire last section to the right. I never knew where the seats were. I assumed they’d be good seats. My first mistake was not to use the… Read Full Review

Did you happen to purchase the ticket insurance ? Maybe you didn’t . Any concert you go to does not refund a ticket if the band cancels or it rains .. You have to buy the ticket insurance .. And all of the conditions are usually listed . I’m not sure though if your company has some type of guarantee to give Ur money back if a show cancels . Many don’t .
