    What I find interesting about this is Stubhub is now relying on the seller to follow through on the day the QR codes become available. It used to be that once the tickets are uploaded to Stubhub the risk is 0 to either the buyer or to Stubhub, and the entire transaction is anonymous.

    But now, if I put my tickets up and they sell, if I don't follow through and transfer once the QR code becomes available the whole thing falls apart. Much more risk for Stubhub. Guess that would only happen once, though, because Stubhub would immediately kick out anyone trying to work a scam.

    And another note, I am thinking about emailing Nat Harden and see what he says about this whole thing. Because of this policy I had 3 tickets that went completely unused for the Penguins game. Which as I have said before to me is a lose lose situation for everyone- including the Predators. I would have sold those tickets very cheap to a Preds fan and I know there are a ton of people who would have loved to buy them.

    I have always had good interactions with Nat and I am curious what his response would be...

    I think that would be good, especially if you can share feedback. If he's interested in hearing other stories I don't mind emailing as well.

    My expectation is he will tell you that you do have an out, you can trade the tickets in 1:1 for one of the preset limited Tue/Thu trade in games or you can transfer them to a friend. Due to increasingly popularity they can no longer support the 2:1 trade in value OR trade in for games not on the preset trade in list.

    You can translate that into whatever the real rationale is behind those policy changes. I translate it as one of the first signs of transitioning from STH loyalty to $$$ loyalty that we've seen with this franchise. Hopefully it is limited to that.

    The thing is, what good is trading tickets in for another game?? I mean, we are, by definition, already season ticket holders, so we already have tickets to every game. Trading in my Pens tickets for a random Tue/Thur game does me absolutely no good at all. (Especially so in our case since we are 3 hours away and can't make most weeknight games, but that is another story altogether).

    Just don't understand why that is offered as a perk- what good is it??

    I guess you could then sell those tickets instead. Granted they wouldn't be worth nearly as much (which leads to the last point I put on that post...).

    You may not be out money even if you sold those. My seat for tonight's game for example would be $64 on ticketmaster, however I paid only $35 with my season ticket package. Yes they may not be worth ticketmaster face, but I'm sure you could probably sell them for season ticket face value.

    Possibly. But wouldn't you rather sell your original "gold" tickets for STH face value as opposed to a Tuesday game? That would be a definite sell.

    We are sorry you can't sell your Penguins tickets for $150 apiece, but here are two tickets to a February Tuesday night game vs Calgary that should net you $14 apiece!

    I agree, this entire gold thing is starting to piss me off. I've been a STH for.. a few months and I already have the vibe that they are focusing more on their $ than STH commitment since their playoff run.

    Trading in tickets does me good for weekday games since I always have to buy another ticket when the misses comes but I know I am in the 1% that actually gets use out of that promotion.

    What I don't understand is why can't we list it on ticketmaster exchange? They already limit the gold games to only the viewing area so us listing them on there wouldn't add to the opposing team coming down from out of state. Which, there is nothing stopping Pens fans in the viewing area from coming so the whole restriction all together seems odd.

    I saw on twitter someone has lived in the state for 30 years but has an out of state billing credit card and is unable to buy tickets to some games because of it; that's not right.

    That is some next level laziness. Have trouble feeling sympathy for that person. It takes about 5 seconds to change your billing address on a credit card.

    Yep. I had to do that a few times when I had a PO Box as mine.

    I'm confused, I thought with gold games all you could do is take a screen shot of qr code and send day of game, I didn't know transferring was an option?

    The new transferral method from our accounts is weird. You send a link to the person. I guess I'll get used to it but I kind of liked the old method where it had their preferred email listed and you just sent through the system.

    I never checked whether the gold game could be transferred or not since we were meeting up for dinner before the game. He just went in with me.
