Thanks.

Odd... opening day, and then 3 entire weekends.

I'm still in, but strange.

That's one heck of a power pack. I might go ahead and buy a couple of them. How much were they last year?

All three of those w/e have premiums, so you are looking @$90 in Premiums, before you even add ticket price, that's why 3 entire w/e, they are making you buy the 9 most expensive games to get OD tickets. Still some of the best games to go see though.

Be interested to know the seat locations, since they already sold bunch of OD tickets through lottery and Bonus program.

I am interested in Power Pack but I'm a factory worker not an office or college person so all I could go to would be Opening Day. I work 3-11 shift all of the games except Opening Day which I am on 7-3 days but can take vaction day that day,so is their any one that would buy the other tickets from me FACE Value only plus what ever mailing cost I pay to order or Opening Day ticket for Face Value ONLY. Well see I work all three shifts it's just the Bo Sox Indians and that Cubs series I happen to be on 3-11 shift all weekend and can't go.

Last season, we bought four for the family. In the bleachers I think they were like 144 a piece, if I can get one for under $200 somewhere else, I would rather, because those bleacher seats were terrible. You couldn't hear the P.A and you couldn't see the big board, but I guess that is why they are the "cheap seats".

Still can't find any pricing info. Would hope they'd get that up before, say, Saturday.

You can pretty much calculate what the prices will be by looking at the single game pricing structure

Find the area you would like to sit in and then do the math for...

4 Premier Games
6 Select Games

Looks like it will cost me about 300 to sit where we did last year (View Level Box)

If I'd known how much these were going to end up costing..... I woulda' bought another 20 game pack! The other ticket I'll buy is for an out-of-town brother (Fla), that can't make 20 games. But the cost of the Power Pack this year is just chump change less than I paid for my 20+ package.

And oh yeah, the Opening Day ticket I ended up with for the 20 game package sucks!! My 20 game seat is 10X better! I'm more than a little irritated as to how this life-long fan was dealt this year.

Got my two packs just now. Unfortunately I had to get them way up in section 523. The sundeck was sold out.

I got two in the terrace outfield, I was dissapointed the Sun Deck was sold out, but these are still the best opening day seats I have ever had.........The only thing I don't get about these packs is that there is no price break what so ever. Normally when ordering games in bulk, the team selling them will offer some kind of price break. I know Opening Day is quite a perk, but If I am buying 10 games at once, don't you think I should get a little break as compared to someone who is just buying a single game?

I just got two in the bleachers, because I'm cheap. Honestly, this will be my first Opening Day, and I'm very excited about that. There is no bad seat for Opening Day as far as I'm concerned. As long as it is in the stadium, its OK by me. You would think there would be a cut fugowitribe, but the way I look at it is they are 10 of the most easily sold tickets on the scalper market. You could easily turn those tickets around for some big time profit. the OD tickets alone could almost make up for the price of the whole package.

i wanted to get 2 in the bleachers---but i was blocked until those sold out. So, i stepped up and got view level. This will be my first opening day so im just unbelievably pumped up right now. Its like Christmas (we even have the snow). Ill be in 521. Go Reds.

I got section 429...I am ecstatic about those seats...I could've had lower level row UU, or something like that, but I don't like to sit underneath, so I requested different seats.

Just bought four in section 520! I'm pleased. About the same place I got mine last year. Splitting the cost with three buddies from Columbus. We'll go all to opening day. stay at Beltarra, play golf, gamble, and then go to the game. Then we'll just split up the rest of the tickets and go to the games of our choice. It's all about opening day. It' been an ongoing tradition with my buddies. We have a blast. I wouldn't miss this years opening as they pay tribute to the OLD LEFTHANDER!

I bought 2 packs in section 521. Im really pleased with the tickets I got selected for (even though i couldn't get the bleacher seats) because they have a great view. Anyways, to answer your question NorrisHopper30, i believe that they will be mailed to your house. Can you imagine the chaos of giving thousands of tickets out to people out on opening day just from the PowerPacks alone.

I already have my OD ticket via the 20 game plan, and was prepared to buy a Power Pack so as to guarantee attendance for my brother, coming in from from Fla. Then, I remembered how crappy the seat is the Reds gave me for Opening Day. Add that up with how they bundled all high $$ games for the Power Pack, I'd have been better off buying another 20 game ticket. Their marketing scheme is diabolical, albeit effective. (Somebody's got to pay all those salaries, guess it's you and me)!! Screw 'em. Big brother will have to scalp his way in:D:D

I didn't want to start a new thread, so does anybody know what the row behind the reds dugout is? I was looking at tickets on stubhub, and somebody listed their ticket as first behind the dugout. Thanks.

1) As you face the field, seat #1 will always be on the aisle to the left
2) Front row is "A", but you might have better seats than you think in certain sections where the first row is...
107 and 108 begin with Row T
109 and 120-121, and 137 begin with Row M
110 and 115-119, 127-131 Begin with Row F
136 begins with Row E
138 begins with Row R
139 begins with Row X
408 and 409 begin with Row J
3) You may be under cover in event of bad weather...
Sections 102-105, Rows K-P under cover
Sections 107-112, Rows HH-OO under cover
Sections 120-121, Rows EE-FF under cover
Sections 127-137, Rows FF-OO under cover
Sections 409-418, Rows P-Q under cover

You get out of the 4.04 per ticket convenience fee charge. That be 40+ per ten tickets, plus 3+ something for orderprocessing. The 30+ in fees you paid for your package(regarless of # of tickets) is only 10+ more than the $20 fee charged with a season ticket package.

Thanks, I thought the convenience fee was kind of low at $30, because I had concert tickets for Tom Petty end up with convenience fees that were around $8 a ticket. It is getting kinda ridiculous with all these extra charges!

You can avoid the convenience fee if you buy at the stadium I believe, or having a season ticket package. With the season package I think I save, $21+ per pair of tickets w/ the discount and one flat fee for the year. Plus, seat location is better.
