Citicard presale successes?

Recommended Posts

Trying to get an idea of successful GA purchases using the Citibank presale.

Based on what transpired during round 1, what chance do I have for Chicago #2? - assuming I get a Citi presale code.

My friend who is not a U2.com member was able to get 4 GA tickets via the Citi presale.  I tried twice with the Citi codes, had 4 GAs in my cart, and the page either froze or told me I had exceeded the max amount of tickets to purchase.  I'm still unclear as to whether this was a technical glitch or if U2.com members are limited to buying only 2 GAs with the Citi presale.  (When I went back to try and buy 2 GAs, the site said there were none available.)

I got 2 GA to Boston in the Citi sale, quick and easy, at 9:03. Tried for GA in other cities after that but couldn't pull any more up.

I saw GA (searching for 2) in Atlanta for Citi when there none the day prior for my Innocence search.  The Innocence search was the very second the sale opened, the Citi search was a few minutes late.  It was easy to form conclusions, and certainly the fact is that additional GA were released.  However, luck/timing clearly still are a factor.  Someone else here posted being able to get GA for Atlanta during Innocence (when I was unable).  Also, immediately after I saw Citi GA, they disappeared again.  Finally, I saw GA again during the first seconds of the verified "public" sale.  They too disappeared immediately.

I didn't get GA Los Angeles tickets with my fanclub code but DID get three GA Los Angeles with the Citi code. (I did get GA's instead for St Louis and my husband got GA's for Tulsa - but irritating that we didn't get them to our home show with our codes)

I know other friends who don't have memberships here but have Citi cards and were successful at getting GA for their respective cities. It almost felt like they (whomever they is) free'd up GA's for the Citi pre sale after the fanclub issues the previous days...

I got 2 GA during the innocent presale (needed 4 total for my kids), got two more GA for my kids during the Citi presale. Both sets were done with the "Mobile" app on an Android.  I was only able to get a total of 4 for the Venue (Uniondale, NY). Attempted to get 4 GA using the Citi presale and was told that I reached my max allotment of tickets for the venue, so I went and reselected 2. Both were done within 5 minutes of the open of the pre-sale. No luck with MSG in New York. But will be attempting to get 4 GA in MSG for the 2nd show... Not 100% sure if the limits are 4 per venue or 4 for per Ticketmaster Account... Since I would have presale codes from Citi that I didn't use for MSG.

Thanks for all the replies.

The failures of presale system seemed to be louder than the successes - not to minimize the frustrations of those who couldn't get tickets.

I was one of them.

But it did work for many.

I'm guessing demand may be a bit diluted compared to last week - but i suspect GAs will still go quickly.

I need three for Chicago #2.  I hope i get a code for the Citibank presale.
