That right there tells you all you need to know about how overpriced the bridge seats are and that sales have been flat. A couple lines on a new map isn't going to change that

I find it annoying that we can't manage our accounts through a mobile app.

I think there's a "transfer tickets" option on the Rangers mobile app. Also cool that you don't have to worry about printing your tix beforehand and they can just scan your phone when using your season tix. When I'm meeting someone there (especially if it's last minute), I take a screenshot of the code on my phone, send it to my friend, and just meet him at the seats.

Cool, I'll look into that. I wish some of the other functions were available, like taking down a listing on the ticketexchange if my ticket sells on StubHub. I've had that situation where it sold on both sites and I had to eat $50 for StubHub to find a comparable ticket.

If you have an Iphone you access your tickets from the Rangers app and add the tickets to the "Passook" app. Once they're in the Passbook app you can have the tickets scanned at the gate. You can also text or email one or multiple tickets to a friend or anybody.

To add your tickets to Passbook app open the Rangers app on your phone.
Click transfer tickets.
Then log into your account.
Click the game you want to use tickets for.
Under the select an option area select view tickets.
Either select all or individually check the tickets you want to view.
Then click View your tickets.
Then your 1st ticket with the seat number will appear, click add to Passbook and wait for the page to load then click Add on the upper right of this screen.
After the 1st ticket loads, go to the bottom of the screen and click next. Repeat this for each ticket you want to load.

Once you do it a few times it will be easy. I never use my printed tickets anymore and I have texted tickets to other people and they then add the texted ticket to Passbook.

Does anyone here actually have back blues season tickets? They say they sell them but I've never met anyone who has season tickets in the back 2 rows of the 400s

Yes, they have sent them in early march. No idea if it was for the renovation. More likely that they now offer the 9 or 10-payment plan, which needs to start in March or April to have it done when they want.

I know it's wishful thinking, but it sure would be nice to see no increase for 2014-2015. Just not sure the market can take much higher prices right now.

Well the preseason games are back so that's an increase in itself. Hopefully with that they won't increase any prices but I wouldn't put it past them.

Count on them always raising prices. This is my guess on before and after:

Looking back seems like early march is when playoff invoices should normally go out

2013: March 21 (lockout)
2012: March 6
2011: March 14
2010: March 4

Mostly agree, but for the past 2 seasons the Gallery 2nd Row Goal and 200 Level Lower Center have been pegged to the same price points...so I expect that to continue. My guess is they both increase from $82 to $85.

I also believe the non-renewal rate for the 1st row gallery seats will be higher this year, even if they only increase by $5. $165 and $135 is simply too much for most non-corporate ticket holders...and most company accounts aren't looking for upper bowl seats.

$8 increase for upper center 200's seems extremely steep even if there is a lot of value at the current price.

I could see $3 or $4 but $8 is kind of ridiculous in one season.

Yeah, 15% is a bit much...but I wouldn't put it past them. They know that they'll have little trouble finding new subscribers at that price point.

The thing is they have the pricing data and they know the upper 200 center seats are the most undervalued in the garden. They want to maintain cheap seats they can point to but that's what they have the blues for. I think this is where you'll see the largest increase but we'll see

Understand what you are saying, but just because 500-1000 seats sell for a decent premium in those sections each night, it doesn't mean ALL of them will sell that well. I'm thinking those will be $60 and the $53's will be $55.

I haven't really followed ticket prices until last year. Is it sometimes the case that they will go out of their way to correct market inefficiencies (bump up the upper center 200s a bit and hold, or dare I say lower, first row galleries), or is it generally just a small bump across the board?

Small bump across the board. There is a decent enough waitlist and if the Rangers go on a roll in the playoffs as they are capable of the demand will just rise. The lower bowl is horrible if you plan on reselling a lot of games but the upper bowl still sells decently. The Rangers are a good exciting team!
