Logged in at 8:30 to check prices. Looks like $225 (in the endzones) are cheapest. Ouch!
spoiler alert: i linked this
For notre dame. Section 44. Lotta money
Still cheaper than stubhub at the moment.
For both ND and Ohio when I logged in. Crazy that it's already gone up.
I was just buying one ND ticket and had it in the cart for the $195 price and when I went to hit submit an error message came up that said PD is no longer that price. Wasn't sure what was going on at first, but went back and put another ticket in my cart and the $225 price went along with it and it let me checkout.
Whew. AD just took me for a ride and some loot but well worth it.
Same thing happened to me, but I still managed to score 2.
I got the same message. I really hope I didn't end up with four tickets, instead of two. My wife will kill me! I have never seen the system do that.
Sell them for $300 apiece and I'm sure she won't mind
for Victors sections
I was logged in and buying my tickets at $195. The system booted me out, two times. Finally it went through at $225 a ticket.
When I went to checkout at $195 apiece, I got the error message that the price went up to $225 apiece....but it never went to $225 in my cart and I could never check out, eventually my time expired...I tried again at that point and luckily I got 2 more at $225 and it let me checkout. Whew!
Sounds like a scam by the AD. HURRY! PRICES ARE GOING UP! Nobody probably ever got $195.
ringin us out like a sponge to get every last drop, (cent).
Got 4 at $195 for Notre Dame, set the alarm for 5 AM (Pacific), was not going to miss this. Did not have any of the $225 issues others mentioned
Congrats! We can only hope that UTL II will live up to the unbelievable experience that was UTL 1
here, 4 for $195. I'm also looking for 8 to Indiana but refuse to pay above face. Ticket spreadsheet hopefully my friend.
Out of Control... but very smart move by the Athletic Department. I just missed the good ol' days when i could score two "piggy back" seats for face value ($75 or so at the time?). I basically backpacked one ticket, then kept refreshing trying to buy another ticket that was the same section, same seat, but one row above/below. I did this for the 2009 ND vs Michigan game. My girlfriend sat behind me.
...does anyone know when we get our season tickets in the mail? I could call the ticket office, but I'm in a meeting right and thought I would try the Mgoblogeratti.
tickets for us poor folk!
If you can afford $225/ticket, you can afford the $100 to become a "donor".
If I donated 100 today, could I buy tickets today?
I think it's like an April deadline every year. I make my donation on Father's Day and thats my present.
The cutoff date was June 30....I forgot and now I hope there will be something left tomorrow.
I think there is still a good amount left. Also you can ask one of the donors to buy you tix today ahead of time. I imagine it won't be too hard w/ paypal, etc.
Pricing is cheaper than StubHub for the big games and more expensive than StubHub for the lesser games. I guess they don't care to have a full stadium for Akron.
Anyone willing to share the code? Figured I'd ask....
There isn't a code. The technology they use recognizes the account as a donor or not.
For today's sale, it's not a code. If you're at a certain priority points level, you can log into your account and purchase.
is no code. It's linked to your Victor's club profile, which you have to sign before making your purchase.
Got 6 for Nebraska at $99 each and 2 for Ohio at $220 each
...but I bought them anyway. Damn you David Brandon...you called my bluff!
I could not force myself to pull the trigger. I have 4 in the cart for ND, totaling $926. I'm going to take a chance that I can find some cheaper through friends or scalpers on game day.
I will buy them from you! I'll round up to $1,000 for your trouble!
So, as a recent graduate of our fine university, how do I navigate the convoluted season ticket "interest" process? I've purchased season tickets from my parents for this year, but I'd like to move on to getting my own.
Just donate 500 bucks and next year you'll be offered the chance to buy 2 tix in the endzone.
Donate $500 between now and April 30, 2014, and -- if there's enough supply -- you'll be offered season tickets next Summer. Others may be able to comment on whether $500 is enough these days (I suspect it is), because whether you get them or not is based on your Priority Points (so make sure your AD account credits you as being a grad, since that gives you points, too.) You don't have to pay a PSD in the first year, so beyond the price of the actual tickets and the $500, that's all you're in for year one. In subsequent years you can drop the $500, but you add the PSD.
"Also made me so mad I won't attend a game but the opener"
If you really want to go to the games go then. Don't let them win. Their are other ways to get tickets cheap but they require a little more work. If I were to boycott the games, I would feel it more than they would feel it. I'm just a drop in the bucket to them. You only live once.
There are a bunch of affordable games this year... CMU, Akron, Minn, Indiana... You can get most of those for under face value if you look around.
the price of the expensive games, if you buy them outside the statdium. No reason for that dude to be piss and take it out on himself.
Tickets for this game are going to be expensive regardless. Dynamic pricing just allows for the University to collect most of the profit as oppose to scalpers. And from what I have heard, these are still cheaper than StubHub.
The people this hurts the most are people like you, who want to buy the tickets at face and actually go to the game (not sell the tickets). But, word from the inside (whether true or not), was that the majority of major game tickets bought through Mgoblue.com at face were resold at helfty profits.
Your first paragraph is exactly why this is brilliant. These were already the prices -- it's just that scalpers were the one to benefit. Now the University gets to capture that additional money. I can't speak for everyone else, but I'd much rather the University gets that money than the scalpers.
The alternative wasn't the University unloading all these as single tickets for face value (think about it: if they did, they'd end up in the hands of the scalpers who would sell them to you for much more).
ND endzone tickets up to $250 each right now.
left for the non-donors.
