-----------------
FRI SEP 2 7:05 DET - NMH ($10 off)
SAT SEP 10 TBD ANA - BUL
SAT SEP 24 6:05 MIN - AON

note: many or all of these discounts disallow buying UDR seats, as well as some other sections. All tickets have a $4 surcharge per ticket (:angry:). But if you cart them together (up to 6 at a time) you can avoid paying $3 extra apiece per transaction on the other 5 sets.

It looks like Bulls and AON nights at least expire a week or so before the day of game. So get them early!

Edits: removed expired promotions. GET THOSE DISCOUNTS EARLY BEFORE THEY DISAPPEAR!

That's only 25 games. Do you mean we're going to have to pay FULL PRICE for the other 56 games? What a ripoff!

this team is messed up.....they offer discounts to tickets that can sell at full price(lower deck), but not to seats that remain empty 9/10 of the time?

you're preaching to the choir, brother... if those tix had been available, i would have likely purchased 4 or 5 more sets - meaning a couple hundred more $$$ for the Sox.

i seriously doubt it, but you're welcome to try. it might be hard to pretend to be a Japanese-American fireman who graduated from UIC, over 62, employed by AON, NMH and the Post Office, and have Bulls Season tickets, all at the same time. :D:

Seriously, I do not understand the logic behind the ticket sales. Let's have less people in the stands when they know that the reason why people do not go of the expense. They can make so much more money that way if they offer half price in the upper decks.

It's not that simple. Then they would have to refund EVERYBODY who paid full price for an upper-deck seat. And that's going to be plenty of people this summer with the way the Sox are playing. You also don't want to cheapen the product. U.S. Automakers can no longer sell a car now without huge rebates. That infers their cars are lower quality than imports, and they can't break the cycle now.

There's something to be said for this theory, but there's also something to be said for the fact that 90% of the time, regardless of team record, tumbleweeds blow through these sections. If no one were buying American autos at all, would you say they had to stay firm on prices?

They ought to have $5 UD seats monday through thursday, all year, and just do away with Half Price Mondays, Pepsi Tuesdays, Full Moon of Month s With "R" In Them Wednesdays, and all the other arcane promos. That way, they keep the value of popular seats (LD) up, but offer a very fan and family-friendly discount on unpopular seats.

The BTF code works, but the Friday May 13 game may be nearling a sellout. I can't stress enough, these codes and ticket sales online in general seem to expire 2-5 days before the game.

The code isn't working when you get the message "That code is not in our system"

I just checked a random sample of the codes in advance, and they're all still working. If the code window does not appear for the date in question, it may be that they have allotted numbers of 'coded' ticket sales, and that limit had been passed. Buy early!

Has anyone else noticed how when you use this codes its like of the 40,000 seats say they only allow some 10% to be sold at the discount. So even if there are 20,000 seats left it could say no seats available when using the code. Its like airlines only x amount of all seats are sold at the lower fare, the rest at regular price. Kinda shady, but still first come first serve.

"Purchase up to four half-price tickets to all Chicago White Sox games played on Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday at U.S. Cellular Field for the remaining 2005 regular baseball season." link (http://www.autoclubgroup.com/chicago/savings/partner_results.asp?vendorID=4217&keyword=white+sox)

I found this today for all of you with AAA cards. I think Thursday just became my favorite day of the week with half price tickets and dollar dogs. Too bad they only have 3 Thursday home games between now and August (that's including this Thurday's against Baltimore).

That's a pretty good deal, it is day of game however. But since it is at the BO, you don't get any online fees. Definitely worth looking into, esp. if you have a family member or friend with a card.

Shoot, they won't check you. They can hardly FIND the tickets at will call, let alone get creative with checking people. Besides - an actual season ticket holder might be leaving them for someone else. There is no feasible way to screen people who pick up tickets at the window for things like that.
