Title: $100 Fee to Get Paper Season Tickets
Post by: ManeCity83 on July 15, 2019, 03:30:58 PM
I just got the season ticket renewal email from MU, and it includes the following:

"...New this year, season tickets will be distributed digitally via your My Marquette Account.  If you would like to receive a printed ticket book in addition to your digital (mobile) tickets, answer YES to this question and the $100 service charge will be later added to your invoice."

I knew they were phasing out the paper tickets this year, and I guess it's nice that they're still making them available to the old curmudgeons who can't figure out how to use the digital tickets, but a $100 fee seems prohibitive.  (I guess that's the point.)

Is anyone still ordering the paper tickets?

I guess MU feels that the $100 fee will be enough to get people to go the digital route in the future.

Frankly, since I was an undergrad in the late 1970s, I always kept my ticket stub and wrote facts about the game on the back of the ticket, including with whom I attended the game, attendance, leading scorer, etc. It was my personal record that would be a keepsake. Those types of things would jog my memory about that particular game.

Not everyone is as sentimental as I, and I get that. But this is another manifestation of the paperless society.
There are retailers around the country attempting to do business with plastic and/or phones to be rid of cash and coins.

While there has been some backlash in some cities to these types of cashless retailers, this is the wave of the future.

I guess we will just have to get used to it.

Go Warriors!

It’s the reality of today’s world, and while I have adapted to most of it - like e-tickets, news, streaming music and TV, banking and other financial transactions - the one transition I still can’t make is books. As long as somebody still prints words of novels and memoirs on paper, I will buy them.

For me, e-tickets was actually one of the easiest changes, because it made it easier to buy, sell or give them away.

Until it doesn't work, and then the age old ability of having a paper ticket looks pretty comforting.  I've used digital tickets for years, but twice run into a situation where they didn't work properly and it was more painful than it should have been to get the staff to rectify the situation.

I want the paper tickets. My wife has an I phone, so it is not a problem if she goes to the game. It becomes a problem if she is not going to go to the game.

This pisses me off, because I called MU before making my $100 deposit and asked if I could still get paper tickets. They said yes I could, but did not say anything about a $100 fee.

Pickup an old phone for 30 dollars. Download tickets prior to game. Profit.

Everyone does this.  The Cubs charge $400 for hard tickets, though there are 81 games and not 16.  Trying to discourage the paper tickets obviously.

Wow $100! Lots of money.
I split Sox tickets with three other people. The actual named season ticket-holder has been getting the paper tickets because that way when we divvy up our tickets, he just passes them out. I don’t know that he would keep the tix if he had to forward them one at a time to everybody- I’m assuming that would be the only way to get them to the proper person.

Yep, my NBA and MLS ticket packages are electronic and easy to distribute to others. They also prevent fraud; you can’t pass back an already used e-ticket to sell outside and scam people.

A bar code is a bar code. You can print it if you want. However they will probably reject it at the door.

The last time I checked (2 or 3 seasons back), they were $5. So if you bought one for every home game, it would be similar in cost to the $100 for paper tix.

When I was a kid, my dad bought me programs for most any sporting event we went to. By the time I was in high school, I had a huge cabinet full of Warriors, Brewers, Bucks and Packers programs. I might have kept them all, but my parents divorced and moved to smaller apartments when I was still in school and moving from apartment to apartment myself, so I ended up tossing most of them and just keeping the most "significant" ones. I suspect many of the 70s era MU programs I tossed could fetch a few bucks today....

We do the same thing with our Sox tickets - the named season ticket holder hands them out when we do out ticket selection draft.  But we all now have access to the e-tickets via the website (just share the username and password of the keeper of the tickets) so that we can transfer tix digitally. 

I expect that in the next year or so it will be all digital.

Happened at one of the bucks playoff games. Had a friend that missed the 1st quarter because the ticket scanner servers crashed.

I'm not going to shell out $100 - more than enough of an incentive. But agree there's still some risk

Considering the stupid configuration of entrances and the fact there is 1 large 1 medium and 1 small entrance that is a nightmare. Whoever design the stadium entrances should be fired. It takes way longer to get into the games and nothing different has changed in security measures from previous years.

Nope. Cubbies make more money if you go paper. Your choice. Hardly a tax. You don't have to pay it.

Anyone who forces you into digital tickets is doing so so that they can make more money selling your data. They will sell your info to 3rd parties, they will try and upcharge you into better seats the day of the event, track your activity to push ads your direction, send coupon codes for food and merch at the event. etc. Would not be surprised if Marq is using this build a profile on you so they can target you for donations.

The nominal paper ticket fee is more a behavioral nudge to make it seem as though it's outrageous when there's a "free" option. This is not about saving money as it relates to printing cardstock (please), authenticating tickets, or making it easy to distribute if you can't make the event. It's about making more money. If you care about privacy, know that the $100 (or $400 for others) is significantly less value for the ticket provider than the lifetime value of watching your every move.

FWIW...Called today to find out if it was per seat or per order. The $100.00 is per order regardless of the # of seats you have. The $100.00 fee is for the "Fancy" picture tickets in a book.  They are providing "generic" printed tickets for FREE if you pick them up at the Al. (Not each game but the entire season pack). God forbid they would have to pay for postage after I just spent $4800.00. Just call and give them your name. The excuse given to me was they were moving this direction because the Fiserv Forum asked them to be more "Green". Seems to me it just puts more "green" into there bank account.

I don't disagree that your information is being sold.  However, as long as MU has your email address, the same information can get sold when you buy paper tickets and have them scanned at the game.    Really no different than digital in this case.

I second this. Have to imagine this limits the resale market to StubHub and other such services far more than the paper tickets.

All you have to give them is an email.

The way to market this is call it a $100 discount for electronic versus paper.

I don't disagree that your information is being sold.  However, as long as MU has your email address, the same information can get sold when you buy paper tickets and have them scanned at the game.    Really no different than digital in this case.
So that's how you're all making huge profit? Selling our info, hey?

Yes, but what they ultimately want is your consumption data...which is linked to the geolocator part of the app you use to get scanned into the arena.

What entrance do you come in from
What time do you arrive before games
When do you leave the games
How often do you get up from your seats
Where do you go (concession stands, bathroom, etc)
Did you buy merchandise....did you do it after an ad on the jumbo screen
Etc etc

That’s the value that an email address only doesn’t provide

As much as people (deservedly so) want to protect their privacy, I feel like anyone buying my data would get absolutely ripped off.

Entrance: JC
Arrival time: 10-15 min before tip
Exit time: Don't leave until the final buzzer under (almost) any circumstances (did it once. Vandy in 2011, only time I felt like the team quit).
Leave seat: Go to the bathroom at half maybe 50% of the time.
Merch:  Only non-ticket money I have ever spent at the FiFo was buying a single beer during the Bucks home opener last year, just to say that I did (also so I could keep tabs on game 6 of the NLCS)

If you want to pay for that info, go right ahead.

Heaven forbid that this mystical MUBB game app, which I have never seen btw, syncs up to my Fitbit. My resting heart rate during these crappy OOC games might signal MU to send the Bell Paramedic Squad to my seat to see if I died from the lack of competition on the floor.

Actually seen them in action at several stadiums we are involved with.  Hardly far from the truth depending if they are connected to wifi, and in the soon to be 5G world the tests done are absolutely amazing...can even determine from a 3D perspective what floor they are on.  Interesting things coming, some already here and testing in the real world.

Well you can pay $100 for printed tickets or go down to the ticket office and they will apparently print them for you for free.

Do people realize that buying season tickets is optional?

You could buy an old phone for like 50 dollars and just use that.

The world is changing, my friend.  At some point last century, they removed all the hitching posts from downtown streets, and I am sure there were complaints aplenty that there was no place to tie up one's horse.

Hundreds of dollars?

Here's an unlocked Galaxy S4 (yes, an old phone, circa 2013/2014) for $70.  I mean, it's really old by today's standards, but if all you want to do is make phone calls and get into the FF, then it'll work just fine.  Buy it, put your sim in it, and it'll work just like 'ol flippy.

Or better yet, don't even put a sim in it. Download the tickets, charge the phone and bring it in.

Pull up the tickets on your phone at home. Take a picture of the ticket on your phone with a 35mm camera. Take the film to Walgreens to get it developed. When it's ready in a week, you have a ticket you can put in your pocket.

I don't know why you all think this is so hard.

Many of the season ticket holders, who prefer the printed tickets are long-time season ticket holders. My season tickets go back to the 55-56 season.

I think MU made a mistake saying you had to pay $100 for a printed ticket book. They just should of said there would be no printed ticket books, but you could pick up printed tickets if you wanted them. They made me mad for no reason at all. It is poor business to piss off your customers.

I would say on the flip side who likes to save a printed ticket as a keepsake was a nice move by Marquette. It makes some not  get mad about not having the chance for printed tickets.

I actually started going to games in 1962. My father had 10 season tickets starting with the 55-56 season. My dad wanted me to pay for two season tickets I was using. I said okay, but I wanted the tickets in my name. Two tickets (I wanted to take my girlfriend to games) were transferred to me in 1969, when I was 17 years old. When Marquette went to reseating (1986?) you were allowed to transfer only at that time tickets between family members. I asked my dad to trade tickets with me, with the promise he could still use the 1955-56 tickets and I would continue to use the 1969 tickets.This allowed me to keep the1955-56 tickets he was using, when he passed away in 2002. The tickets going back to 1969, which were in his name and being used by me were not renewed.
