$100 Fee to Get Paper Season Tickets
« 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?

BrewCity 83:

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.

Sorry for your hardship. Just to think, it could’ve been me. I’ve used electronic tickets too :-/

Pretty crazy ticket fee. But it's the way of the future. People will just start using other things as mementos instead of stubs.

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.

How much are programs? I like the memento of the paper ticket. I suppose the programs would do, but then you have to buy them before every game because any one could be memento worthy.

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.

Sounds like a tax...that’s what taxes do....retard spending.

The Bears don't even give you the paper option for 2019. It's all digital

Angels did same, but they have option for people that do not have digital phones....and yes there are quite a number of folks that do.  I would be surprised if the Bears don’t also have an option of some kind like that.

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.
What, you still throwing up bricks? What is this, a Masons convention? Clank, clank! I need, like, a welding torch to play in this league! I got an idea, let's just stop right now and gather up all these bricks and let's build a shelter for the homeless so maybe your mother will have a place to stay

I will have to pay the extra $100 because I don't have a cell phone.  I take it I cannot print the digital tickets at home.  I do this for various theater tickets in Milwaukee.

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....

When Marquette wins the National Championship the paper tickets will be a nice keepsake.

I still have my tix from all five NCAA Tournament games in '77. They have been safely preserved in a frame for decades.

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.

I'm willing to guess these problems happen far less than people getting burned by printed counterfeit tickets.
