Did you get the Extra cubs came in the UD? or your regular Cubs game in the UD with that package?

For 1200.00 bucks I figured on better seats for ALL games. My mistake for not doing it over the phone.

My regular game is in the UD.

Could be worse. I ordered the 13 game plan over the weekend and today I asked for the extra Sox-Cub game. I was told that the offer expired on Friday at 5pm. :(:

I will get my tickets tomorrow or Friday. I ordered Lower Box...I wonder where I will be.

So now I call there and check to see if there are any lower deck tickets still available for 13 games plans with the Sun Sox game and they said "plenty." I questioned why was I put in the uppder deck and the response was that the bleachers were sold out. Here is the agreement from the Sox Ozzie plan:



The Ozzie Plan is a 13-game, flexible-date plan that requires the purchase of the same number of seats within the same Seating Category for all 13 games in a single order. If a Seating Category is sold out for any selected games, your order for that game will be filled with the next-best-available Seating Category.


Then I was told since the order was already processed that there was nothing that could be done.


Now my blood pressure is sky high.:angry:

That's exactly what they did. You ordered "bleachers", right? Bleacher tickets are $38/ticket for that game. The next lowest priced ticket is "Premium Upper Box" at $34. They don't automatically bump you up a pricing category because people would get pissed (well except you and a few others). You should have asked for "lower reserved" for only $2/ticket more because chances are you would have been in the outfield on either side

Yep you are right.....They were next best available.....:thud:

I think it also said that Bleachers weren't available for the Cubs Sox series in this plan. That's why I went with lower deck reserved instead.

I gave my info (order form) to Brian and he said that he would call me Monday. He didn't and I e-mailed him today. He told me that he gave my info to another rep and that is what the other rep told me. :(:

I bought a Minnie plan over the phone on Weds, 1-12 for Lower Box. Got all Lower Box seats except Opening Day which were Lower Res. I guess they sold out those already when I called.

Did anyone get Lower Box at the box office on the 14th?
Next year, I'll call in sooner or get scout seats.

I dont know why you'd complain about upper deck tickets, I love the upper deck, to me it seems like you can see better than the lower deck

You enjoy the uppder deck, I'll wave to you from the first row of the fan deck which I consider one of the best seats in the house.

Odd? Maybe. Have you ever sat in that first row of the fan deck? Very nice. Check it out sometime. Also, the beer vendor is about 15 feet away. :gulp:

I don't like watching the game with the players back to me. Hmmm...what day is your cub game? I have Friday Lower Reserved (Left Field, which I don't care for) If you have Friday in the UD, I may be willing to make a swap with you (depending on your seats).

The ticket office has taken care of my mistake and they are exchanging my UD seats for me.

Ok.

The offer does stand for anyone else with UD seats (as long as they aren't nosebleeds) and would rather be in lower reserved (LF) for the Friday cub game. PM me if you are interested in a swap.

I PM'd you, I went through my ticket guy Greg to get the tickets and asked for LF reserved for all my tickets, but I could only get the UD for Fridays game. I don't have my tickets yet btu I am interested.

I wrote back. I think we have the same ticket rep. (unless there is more than one Greg).

Think about why I like to sit sit in the fan deck and not the bleachers?

hmmmmm.....ok

Maybe I can also figure out a way to get in for free and sit in the fan deck so I don't have to spend all that money.....

You have great seats, yet you want to sit in the fan deck? that's odd....now, if you were a ud ticket holder, and there were no restriction/barricades, then i can see your point...
