Has anyone used the Ticketmaster "Ticket Exchange"?

Postby Zamboni Driver » Tue Feb 28, 2012 12:42 pm

I'm getting really PO'ed right now. :evil:

I'm in Phoenix right now on business, so I want to go see the game. However the stupid Ticketmaster TixExchange (which is for season ticket holders selling their tix) won't take a Canadian credit card.

They have a great ticket available, front row on the balcony level for $30.
However I can't buy it.

I can only buy a ticket from the regular Ticketmaster site, a seat way back in the last row up in the nosebleeds, for $50.

Anyone else had this problem?

Run out and buy a US prepaid VISA.

Even better, just get your credit card company to add a US address to your file. Choose the home of an Amerifriend you can trust.

They will still send the statements to whatever address you specify, so it's not like your bills are going somewhere in the States.

Since I did this, I have no problems ordering anything from the States anymore. FWIW, it's a Capital One card.

Thanks for the tip, I will try that next time.
I just paid $40 at the box office, but it's a pretty good seat. 8-)

Ticketmaster was such a rip-off, $49 for nosebleeds about 20 rows back of what I did end up getting.

I never do business with ticketmaster. Buy ticket off of Ebay and print them. You can use paypal via Canadian credit cards.
