I just got my notice...I wasn't selected. I already have tickets anyway. I was just going to help out some friends. However, I registered, my mom did, my girlfriend did...etc. I'm waiting to hear from them to see if they were selected.

I got rejected too. As did my brother, cousin, my friend who also plans to go with us, and each of our wives. Guess it's the scalper route for us.

What, did they only pick one winner out of all the entries? I haven't heard of anyone who has won. I too got rejected.

Grounds Crew, haven't seen you around in a while. Are you back in Cincinnati?

I was rejected but after winning a lottery for the national championship ticket I cant be too upset. My dad's yet to receive an email though so maybe they have not sent winning emails yet.

Rejected along with 13 family members and friends. I have my 1 ticket through my 20 game plan, but siblings that come every year for opening day from Florida will have to scalp this year I guess. Still waiting to hear from 3 local family and 1 in Virginia.....The odds were really a lot longer than I expected.

I haven't got any response either! Neither has my wife. My mom got hers yesterday at 3:22. I know it just postpones the inevitable "NO" email, but I like to at least know.

section 102 40 bucks a piece after convenience charge.. they also apparently are using these same "premier" prices for the red sox series..

so basically double price..

hell bleachers are 28 a piece for opening day after convenience..

The premium on last years OD tickets was $10. This year the premiuim on OD(and Sox series) is $15, plus most seating locations went up $2, except View Level went up $1, Terrace OF stayed same, and Bleachers went down to $7. Plus the convenience fee per ticket went from 3.74(?), to 4.09. Order processing was $3.25(cannot remember where that was last year) Last year Paid $68 something for OD in Sun/Moon deck, this year paid $109.43 for Field Box. Seat are closer to home, don't know if they are better.

If it let me buy four I would have. How many seats do you have on your account? and how many did they let you buy?

0-3 here. However, I may have found a weakness in obtaining those mythical tickets....but I'm not sure if I want to let the cat out of the bag.

Well after you have your lions share, what better place to let the cat out of the bag.

I'm 0-4 as well, system is rigged. They probably gave out ten seats and promoted this single ticket auction to create buzz for their ticket packages.

I'm not sure any of you read what I wrote in the "opening day" tickets thread, but I'll pass along what I know.


Last year, roughly 100,000 people entered the lottery and only 1% of those entries were awarded the opportunity to buy tickets. That's only 1000 people.

I didn't think last year was a lottery.

Anyway, I think I have 4 tickets locked up in section 130. It may be a week before I can confirm it. As for my secret method....well it seems to be gone now. I got very lucky if it works for me. I was hoping to let my friends and family in on it before they were gone. But now it seems they are already gone. I still don't know if I want to let everyone in on it, since I can't yet confirm my tickets. Even then, if I tell it may hurt my chances for next season.

It let my buddy by 4 tickets.. i didn't know they let some people buy 2 and some buy 4.. thats dumb.. plus why is there all of these SRO tickets? how do people actually purchase those?

Ahhhorsepoo
02-15-2008, 02:38 PM
i wish they set aside like 75% of the leftovers after season ticketers get theres.. and had a rule that if they are sold through an online retailer you could never again buy od tickets.. this is ridiculous.. the saddest part.. a friend of mine knows someone who works for a ticket vendor and while you or I would kill for a ticket.. since we arent willing to spend a grand for 2 seats a few years ago there was more than 200 tickets not used for opening day i have been told.. because they were priced too high..

The lottery sale was going on @ the same time the Bonus OD ticket sale for season ticket holders. Bonus ticket only allowed to buy 2, Lottery winners as I missed got 4(thanks for info). Which makes me think they could possibly make more people happy by cutting down the limit to 2 for lottery winners. Also, makes me think the places like 333seat must have multiple ST accounts, since they have a lot of pairs listed as Etickets ready to print @ home, etc, which had to come from the Bonus OD account method, since the lottery yielded 4, and as far as I know no other tickets are sent out yet.

Best way to get more people and less brokers to get more OD tickets is build a strong ST base and don't buy from scalpers. I know a lot of people cannot afford a whole 20 game package, but even if you have to split a 20 game account with another person(or 4 other people) that give you guarantee OD tickets every other year( or 4th year). I'm in a group that shares a package, and we get at least half of us a pair every other year, thanks to Bonus OD program. There are other benefits too, you can bet brokers are taking advantage of those benefits.
