    I don't often find myself looking at the buying side of StubHub for the Flyers but just looked for tonight's game and they're hitting buyers with 27% to 29% in fees?!?! I thought it was like 10%. That's wild.

    It’s been like that for a year or two. It’s gotten completely out of hand.

    It's a real shame the Flyers couldn't/wouldn't make their in-house Ticket Re-Sales Program work... With the SH Fees now so high, they would probably stem the Re-Sale Market, and could help the STMs not lose as much money in reselling... Of course, the Flyers get the Original bucks no matter what, but it would be better for them in retaining their STMs, if they know they could more easily move their Seats with lower hits... and people could buy cheaper, due to less Fees... But I really can't recall if the Flyers' Fees were any better... I do realize their maintaining cost was too high for them, and StubHub lowered their Cost end of the situation.

    I was lucky enough to get 2 for $30 each this morning off Stubhub, but there's a reason why I have multiple unused email address. I always sign up with a new one for Seatgeek and use podcast promos lol

    Friend of mine got 2 club box seats center ice aisle Row 2 today. New account, not a renewal or relocation. The point is availability of a seat location like that was unheard of a few years ago. There for the asking these days.

    Yea, I’m on it. It has worked fairly well for me. I think I’ll be going to every game from here on in though.

    Yes. If you don't they automatically renew the account.

    Well you saved me big time. I was going to cancel but didn’t know today was the deadline. I opted out. I will be looking for 1st row seats next year for sure. Do you sell 2?

    Glad to hear that I saved you haha.

    I sell my pair to as many games as possible so they’ll definitely be an option for you next year.

    Sounds good. I just try to offset the huge total cost as much as possible so every bit helps lol.

    4/2 Vs. Nashville - $650

    Seats are in Section 115, Row 1, Seats 13 and 14 on the Aisle. They include access to the Center City Club, which includes all inclusive food and drink (soda, beer, and wine).

    So... one of the perks of renewing was that the first two rounds of the playoffs will be at a higher discount (aka your same price as regular season).

    What are the odds that rounds 3 and 4 are just 2x higher than years past to make up for that difference? 100%?

    I noticed that the playoff invoices won't go out until next week. In 2018 playoff invoices went out on February 23rd with the renewal deadline sometime after that. Just seems like it's setting up for the rug to be pulled out from under us.

    3rd round was 1.8x my season ticket price that year and the 4th round was 3x for reference.

    Although if they make the 3rd or 4th round I don't know how much complaining there will be lol.

    Were you aware that we'd be getting charged today prior to receiving the email two days ago? I had no idea until they sent the email the other day and was just wondering if I missed it in some piece of information prior.

    That Holiday Inn is gone. The closest hotel to the arena area is probably the Courtyard Marriott in the Navy Yard. I haven't ever stayed there myself but I haven't ever heard anything bad about it. Really anywhere in Center City works also.

    Regarding tickets, hope that you get them through the Flyers when they go on general sale. I don't remember if STH's get the opportunity to buy other tickets before the general public. If they do I can try my best to get you some. The resale market for the playoffs are always bumped up.

    Sweet, I bought Stubhub last time and it was a home opener, think I paid around $140 USD ?

    It will be last minute once schedule is announced, but as long as flights dont go nuts I am coming.

    What would good seats be in playoffs, $200 USD each ?
