    No, what I'm getting at is that he has the season ticket ownership. They make you pay for season tickets, but whoever buys these tixs from this dude prolly won't have the chance to buy the playoff seats if they are available.
    And who's going to sell yo utheir season ticket ownership??
    Why don't you just buy your own season tickets?
    There's not much of a wait list, if any.


    Thats my whole point of this all. If your going to be willing to buy crappy seats like this which there isn't a high demand for you might as well be the season ticket owner. It really makes no sense to buy this type of package where your paying full price, not getting packer game, and won't get postseason priority.
    Kind of siding with walleye here (sorry gh).
    If you are going to spend $225 on the season, you might be better off buying season tickets form vikings.com.
    There are pleanty of season tickets left in the $250 range:
    Section 203
    Row 26
    Seats 26-27
    US $250.00 (Adult) x 2

    Section 223
    Row 29
    Seats 22-23
    US $250.00 (Adult) x 2

    Section 221
    Row 27
    Seats 25-26
    US $250.00 (Adult) x 2

    If you want a half season package, you can also do better at vikings.com.
    Gold Package (5 games including GB game and 1 preseason)
    Section 221
    Row 8
    Seats 21-22
    US $300.00 (Adult) x 2

    Purple Package (5 games including Bears game and 1 preseason)
    Section 218
    Row 16
    Seats 1-2
    US $240.00 (Adult) x 2



    Section 221
    Row 16
    Seats 22-23
    US $240.00 (Adult) x 2



    Section 228
    Row 26
    Seats 3-4
    US $240.00 (Adult) x 2



    Section 215
    Row 17
    Seats 19-20
    US $240.00 (Adult) x 2

    The only way that buying from GH would be a good deal is if you bought individual game tickets, as there are not any $30 single game tickets left for most games.

    EDIT:
    I stand corrected.
    GH's half season offer was better than the vikings.com one, but the seats were better at vikings.com
    thats not really what I'm getting at though.
    I agree, if I were to spend $225 for 7 games, I'd rather just go to vikigns.com and get my own season tickets.
    However, GH's deal is not a bad deal, which is more of what I was saying.

    Re: Tickets Available

    Wow, last time I checked they were all out of the $250 packages, at least for side by sides. I even emailed the ticket office inquiring if they were going to move some single seats around to free up some more pairs and they said that it had been done a long time ago. So I was under the impression that season ticket pairs in the $250 price range were all gone. Not sure how they can pop up out of nowhere when there is a no return policy, and last I knew, they did not add on any seats to the metrodome.

    Because of this new evidence,
    I will do $400 for the whole season minus packers game.
    If paying via paypal, fees would be extra, sorry

    They probalby had a bunch set aside for the Fav-re signing that never happened.

    $400 for the season is great for the buyer, but bad for you.
    I don't want you to get screwed either.
    I wonder if you could sell them as individuals on eBay or stub hub, or even TicketExchange through the Vikings.
    You could probably get your money back then at least.
    There aren't any single game tickets left in that price range.

    Re: Tickets Available

    At $400, the way I look at it is, I payed $50/ticket for the packer game which is $25 cheaper than they are going for.


    Does anybody know if the 5 game package includes any playoff ticket rights?

    Re: Tickets Available

    Also, on playoff tickets. How much do the jack up the prices for the game. What did the wild card cost last year for a $25 ticket.

    Not 100% sure, but ticket prices started at $30 (probably limited view) and if thats the case, face value is $15 for those tickets, so likely 100% markup, although maybe less after the embarassment last season.

    Re: Tickets Available

    so probably about $50 for the $25 seats would be a good estimate. Thats more than I was expecting but not all that surprised.

    I don't have my invoice in front of me, but my $50/game regular-season tickets were NOT $100/game for the post-season.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    I believe 2 years ago, the slackers post season tickets with a face of 59 were being billed 99, 129 for the divisional, and 159 for the nfc championship. Just makes no sense that they can jack the prices up on post season, but dont lower the prices on pre season.

    well, very few people will buy single game tickets for preseason, they will however be forced to pay full price for season tickets.
    There's no reason for them to lower prices, they'll be giving away money they'd be making anyway.
