Rangers changing ticket prices?

I tend to search ticketmaster before all home games to see what kind of inventory is available. Besides loads of tickets being available to purchase day of game, I noticed a couple of things:

The Washington game, ticket prices for the 300 goal sections were 78.95 (after fees)..tonight for Buffalo the price is 70.45 (after fees), with a base price of 60.00. That is only 4.00 more than the Season holder ticket price, and 2.00 less than the partial plan holder. This was not the case for every other game. The 200-goal seats appear to be the same, however the 400's are now 50.00 (after fees) and 41.00 base, which is less than the 11-game plan holder and only 4.00 more than a STH.

Also, I noticed for a weekend-rival game prices were 86.95 for the 300 goal sections--which is way higher then the normal.

Anyone have a news report or link explaining this? Since when do the Rangers use tier-pricing structures? Or are the Rangers doing it behind the scenes because tickets are too highly priced and not selling.

I noticed this too when I searched for Knicks tickets. Since when does icketmaster adjust prices for premium games ad stuff? They never used to until they got that box office feature where you can just pick your seats off a seating chart. It used to be just the base prices for any games and search like "Best available" or something. Just buy on Stubhub, tickets are pretty cheap there and just wait a day before the game.

i dunno it might be the rangers but tickets are more expensive for better games and against rivals then against games like dallas or columbus

i recommend you all shopping on stubhub as the prices there are much cheaper and you can get much more bang for your buck

I fully support tiered pricing, but it would be nice to have it announced if it's actually going down.

Got a call today about partial ticket plans. Seems they are having trouble selling them.

These boards, eBay, Craigslist & Stubhub.

Not sure why anyone would pay TM face + convenience charges when there are a ton of STH selling @ face or below

It all depends on where you wish to sit.

Dead Center ice in the 100's / 200's for divisional games at a discount? Unlikely.

A tix behind the goal at discounts? Possibly/probably.

I said @ face OR below - I saw plenty of division games already this season selling for face.

If you are looking for a particular section you'll have a harder time for sure but I'm pretty sure that you can still get good center ice seats cheaper via these other sites rather than playing full ticket + fees via TM.

The season tickets and mini plans are not tiered pricing, but it seems that TM has started tiered pricing on individual NYR game tickets online........ anyone have more info on this?

They cant give away the 100 and club level seats. Every game at the garden about half of the red seats are empty. It shouldn't be considered a sellout if the seat is sold but the holder decides not to show.

Why is that? I mean they can't possibly know who won't show up. Then again, I'm sure they would love to "oversell" the Garden each night. lol Just what we need, multiple people with the same tickets.

That's exactly what my original post was asking. They haven't announced anything which makes me believe they are doing it behind the scenes because tickets aren't selling.

Look at this: http://rangers.nhl.com/club/page.htm...id=DL|NYR|home

Another way STH have been screwed. New subscribers now get food and beverage credit while we got 1.00 off a soda. And the first 85 people get a free jersey.

Thoughts?

Those seats are the garbage seats they can,t giveaway because they overpriced them. The $95 seats were only about $55 5 years ago if I remember correctly. I do know for a fact that the season they picked up Pavel Bure you could have gotten decent 300 level or 400 level seasons yet all the 100,s and 200,s were sold out. 400,s were 22.50 a seat and I think 300,s were about $35. If anybody has a year by year pricing chart going back 15-20 years ago it would be very interesting and telling.

as chris6net says, you don't want seasons in Section 217 or similar. $200 a pair to be on the bad end...good luck finding anyone to take extras off you hand for more than 60 cents on the dollar.

Thats not the point. The point is I get nothing for being loyal year after year, and a new subscriber can get a food credit and a free jersey. There is something wrong with this concept.

I get what you're saying, I totally do. But the reality is the Rangers disdain for season subscribers goes well beyond a food credit and a jersey. They've treated us like crap for years. They have been completely petty...to the point of eliminating a $10 media guide from our benefits. Any way they can pinch a few dollars off their costs they've done it...to hell with the fans who pay the bills.

As a STH it's annoying but they are trying to sell tickets, these are called buy-now incentives. Every team does it and it's effective in some markets.
