The short answer is yes, you can have two Ticketmaster accounts associated with the same email address. However, there are some important things to know in order to properly set this up.
Why would you want two accounts?
There are a few main reasons someone may want to have two Ticketmaster accounts tied to the same email:
- Separate personal and work accounts – You may want to keep your personal ticket purchases separate from tickets bought for work events.
- Shared account with spouse/family – A married couple may want to share an email address but have separate Ticketmaster accounts to keep their ticket histories and preferences separate.
- Old account and new account – You may have an old Ticketmaster account you no longer use but still have the email, and want to create a new primary account.
Is it allowed by Ticketmaster?
How to set up two accounts with the same email
While Ticketmaster may not officially endorse having two accounts per email, it is possible to set it up. Here is how:
- Register the first account normally with your email and password.
- Register the second account, again with the same email.
- When prompted that the email is already in use, choose to receive a verification code via email.
- Enter in the verification code sent to your email to complete the second account creation.
And that’s it! You now effectively have two separate Ticketmaster accounts that both use the same email address.
Using the accounts and avoiding problems
Once you’ve created both accounts, be aware of some steps you’ll need to take to avoid running into issues down the road:
- Log out completely after using one account before accessing the other.
- Use different passwords for each account.
- Check carefully which account you are in when making purchases or accessing your account.
- Don’t try to merge the two accounts later – pick one as primary if needed.
- Be ready to provide alternate contact info if verification codes can’t be sent to shared email.
As long as you take care to properly log in and out of each account, having two Ticketmaster accounts with the same email is definitely doable. Just be diligent about using them correctly.
Although having two Ticketmaster accounts with one email can work, there are some risks and annoyances to be aware of:
- Getting logged out unintentionally – If you stay logged into one account too long, Ticketmaster may log you out unexpectedly, thinking it is a duplicate session.
- Both accounts becoming inaccessible – If there are suspicious activities, Ticketmaster may temporarily disable the accounts until you provide verification, making both inaccessible.
- Difficulty resetting passwords or usernames – Since most verification and password reset emails will go to the shared address, resetting one account can be problematic.
- Issues merging accounts – Down the road, if you want to merge the two accounts, it becomes complicated and Ticketmaster may not allow it.
While irritating, none of these potential issues are necessarily dealbreakers if you stay vigilant. Just know they may pop up.
Alternatives to consider
Instead of having two full Ticketmaster accounts with the same email, you may want to consider these alternative options:
- Use alternate email just for second account – Create a free new email account from Gmail, Outlook, etc specifically for the second Ticketmaster account.
- Add family members to main account – Ticketmaster allows you to add other users as “Friends and Family” on your primary account to share access.
- Only open second account when needed – Rather than keeping two active accounts, only open the second temporarily when you need it.
While having two active accounts can work, one of these alternative options may end up being an easier long-term solution for your needs.
- It is possible to have two Ticketmaster accounts tied to the same email address.
- Take care when logging in and out of each account to avoid issues.
- Be aware of potential account recovery and merging problems down the road.
- Consider alternative options like shared Family/Friends access if complications arise.
With proper diligence, having two Ticketmaster accounts per email is definitely feasible. Just be cautious and ready to deal with occasional headaches. For most users though, a single main account plus shared Family/Friends access is probably the simplest way to go.
