"Ain't got the call no more. Got a lot of sinful idears – but they seem kinda sensible...."
I can't wait to see next years plan.
'We'd rather' look elsewhere' 'We're gonna let the market come to us' 'We'd prefer not too' 'We'd like a shorter term deal' 'Out of our price range' 'We've got in house options' and
'His mom smells, so there'.
How does Stub Hub work???? I was under the impression they got their tickets from people who have already bought them from the Mets. Fans who can't make it to the game sell it to stub hub for whatever they can get.
If that's the case, wouldn't the Mets have already gotten full price for the tickets????
I still love seeing the Mets live.
I think for some the trek to the stadium bothers them but i am 25 minutes away via subway so whatever.
Saying that, i have caught myself going to less games over the last 3 years but that's gonna happen when the team sucks. Only the diehards of the diehards or people who have an endless amount of disposable income are gonna keep showing up.
I'll still go to opening day this year, the ASG, Wheeler and D'Arnaud's home debuts this year and that's about it.
They signed a deal with Stubhub to sell unbought seats for games.
Sometimes you can get a really good deal on them. They had Delta Club Gold tickets i bought last year that usually go over 2 hundred bucks and i got them for 123 bucks a piece.
Stubhub charges you are service fee but for select games its not a bad place to go. In fact they have a retail outlet in Manhattan if you don't want to buy online.
Handling/convenience fees etc. are extremely annoying. I once paid a ticket fee for a play and I bought the tickets at the box office.
It would be less annoying if they increased the price of the ticket and didn't tell you there is a fee. The fact that they charge the add on fee leads me to believe there is some sort of advantage to them to do it. Maybe fees are taxed differently or some expense for actors/players/unions etc. is tied into ticket prices exclusive of the handling fees and the management can just pocket 100% of the fees.
When the team is lousy stub hub is always the way to go. You can usually get the best of the cheap seats (behind home plate) for about 15 bucks. If it weren't such a pain in the *** to get to for me I would go often.
I paid $19.99 per month to watch the games last year on my computer desktop or laptop. You can cancel anytime, which I did at the end of
May when the teams 2 out run scoring magic stopped. I may not get out of March this year.
I mean April
The stubhub fees really aren't a pain. I'm pretty sure there's just the normal online ticket fee and then somehting like a 5 dollar fee to get them sent via email. Much better than some other sites I've seen.
