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.

 

 

So... based on this and previous postings, does this mean that if two different people, with 2 different subscriptions, using 2 different credit cards, purchase tickets for different shows that that should be ok?  But... they live at the same address?  (the place we live has multiple apartments, but the exact same address - and yes, there were 2 unique purchases all legit).  It's like what one of the earlier posts said - we are just regular people trying to buy legit tickets to actually use.  But it gets confusing if you get into the weeds of siblings, housemates, student housing, families with kids, etc.  Should one call TM and beg for mercy?  Wait and hope that the system knows I am not a thief?  Help...???

this should be ok, loads of us have had, or still have 2 or even more subscriptions per household, (partner, sons, daughters etc) and we should not be penalised for that. If it transpires the TM starts flagging up / cancelling tickets for this reason then we will follow up each case like hours until its resolved....

What I'm getting at is, as a subscriber do I exchange the ability to buy more tickets for the privilege of having the access to presales and those who choose not subscribe or use presale codes get to buy more tix as a kind of recompense for not being able to get early access. I'm sorry to be a pest when it's so busy and others have far more pressing problems, I just want to get my finances for this organised 

by rights, it should not be a problem, but ticket master and other ticket agencies have their own systems whereby they auto-flag up what they see may be a misuse and over-purchase from the same address. I have been today been told (by u2comteam) if subscribers have this happen to them we will make sure it gets rectified.

 

 

This is what happened to me.  I got timed out a number of times trying to buy one ticket for the first Boston show.  I eventually made it through and got my one ticket.  This evening TM notified me that my order was cancelled because my purchase exceeded the ticket limit.  I called TM but customer service isn't available till Monday.  I hope this gets recitified but who knows...

Ok I'm worried now. I had to try for like 6 hours to get my second tik. The first one happened in the fist minute

But I kept trying and trying hoping to get Ga and finally got a seat

 

But here is the hitch

 

Got an email from TM saying both my tiks are on hold saying they are checking to see if all orders were legit

 

Here is some text from email:

 

"whether you're printing, going mobile, getting them in the mail, or planning on in-store pickup! This temporary delivery delay just gives us time to run routine checks that ensure all fans get a fair shot at seats, like confirming every buyer is a fan and not a bot, making sure everyone sticks to the ticket limit, etc. "

 

Did I do something wrong ? I purchased 2 total tiks with my code???!

Thanks BW I'll keep you informed.

This has been the most nerve wracking experience in all the years I've been going to U2 shows...I'm sure for u guys too.

Okay so I have called the O2 just to make sure they are also clear on the situation, the woman I spoke to said it should be fine because I only want to get 2 tickets and that if I had wanted more then that would have taken me over the 4 ticket limit for Monday (on top of the 2 I already have) and that MIGHT have lead to cancellation, I'm guessing that means that they would have waited for me to go make a fuss then decide if I am genuine or not, so that's where the 02 and AXS stand for anyone looking at getting extra tix for London. 

I'm still really nervous about it so I may just ask my mum to put it through for me, would have been nice to surprise her, but I'm worried about risking it.
