POLITE NOTICE - ON THE MISUSE OF CODES


Recommended Posts

  • Subscriber

My wife and I have 2 separate memberships to U2.com, thus 2 different pre-sale codes.  I used both codes - mine during the eXPERIENCE pre-sale, and hers during the iNNOCENCE pre-sale.  I used the same account/credit card for both Ticketmaster transactions though.  Will I lose my tickets because I used the same account/credit card on Ticketmaster?

I had to record my presale code 4 or 5 times (maybe more) before to finalize the payment and be able to catch 2 tickets for Antwerp. Belgian TeleticketService is quite capricious! After encoding all the requested informations and the code, I saw a message asking me to record the presale code. I re-encoded the code (and the informations that were all disapeared) but the payment screen wasn't displayed. I repeated then all the procedure but a message was displayed telling me that the mail adress I had recorded was "already  known" (what does it mean??) and no ordering was possible. I finally closed all the windows and repeated the procedure encoding another mail adress. After this last attempt, I could proceed to payment. I have received this morning a mail from Teleticket confirming my 2 tickets reservation and payment.

Please Bigwave, tell me it's OK.

I was told by TM, no. I called them with same worry. I explained situation and I was told I would not have order cancelled. This is not an abuse of the presale.

THANK YOU!

There should be no problem with anyone buying tix w/the general onsale (obeying the general onsale limits, of course--4 for the first day) who has already bought their 2 presale tix.  The TM guidelines are pretty clear on this, I believe.  The presale and regular onsale limits are separate entities.

The TM guidelines aren't clear on this at all.... Maybe for the US, but here it says you can order 4, but I have no idea if that means per transaction or total order. And what if I want to buy for Belgium and Cologne as well?

Indeed!

And what if you have already bought 2 tickets in presale and want to get 4 new ones in he general sale for the same show ... Can you do that on the same account and with the same CC or not?

That's it!!. I'm going back to school and getting my PHD in the Procurement of TM Pre-Sale Tix.  If the tour extends past 2016, it could come in handy.  One should never stop learning.

Bigwave, just to make sure ...

On monday, can I get 4 tickets for Antwerp on my CC when I already got 2 for Paris on the same card?

Maybe a stupid question, and probably already answered hundred times or so, but I don't want to risk anything ...

 

Btw, thanks a lot to the mods for being so incredibly helpful and patient with all of us and our (repetetive) questions !!

Great job guys!!

so many different rules for different venues / countries / ticket agencies. its confusing. my guess is should be ok.

Big Wave,

 

I am still confused! I used my code to get 2 RZ tix for Vancouver. Now I want to buy one ticket for a NY show at the general sale. If I use a different credit card but same billing address, will I be ok? I don't want to lose my RZ tix!

will be ok - this topic is not aimed at genuine fans / fans who live in same house as other fans, both with subscriptions - its a message to those who deliberately set out to misuse the presale. The tiny minority I hasten to add.
