Yeah I meant $ not %. I say the coupons are worthless because there's tons of free parking near the Garden and widely available around game time

Mine showed up in the UPS system around 6, arriving Monday. I think the team emails you when the tickets are one day away for delivery. Let's see how much nicer the Knicks ticket package is than the Rangers package

Last year, the Giants pre-sale was your account number. If the Giants can use a better password and the Mets can set this up where each "invitee" gets a unique PW to be used once, why can't the Rangers?

But they don't give 2 craps because every fan is replaceable with someone else on the waiting list
A day after buying through the 7-line, get an email from the Mets that I was selected in the lottery for the chance to buy play-off tickets. Again, a one-time use password. I am allowed to buy 4 tickets across the Wild Card and LDS games (4 total, not 4 per game). I must buy all 4 in one transaction. If I buy 2 and try to go back and buy 2 more, password won't work. Last night, I went back on and tried to buy additional tickets with my 7-line code and got denied access. So, it does work.

I see that they also changed the tenure benefits:
https://www.nyrsubcentral.com/benefits-4

As far as I can tell there's no difference between being a STH for 3 years or for 50 years except a 5% merchandise discount (????). If things keep as they are, nobody is ever dropping full season in good locations so they'll get to those 50 years soon enough. As they do, I would expect MSG to keep moving the goal posts so that you never get anything meaningful no matter how long you've been around.

And looks like if you're there for more than 2 years, no more happy hours for you!!

Do you (or does anyone) has the old benefits tiers handy? The ones that were New Blue, True Blue, etc. Curious to see if they altered the amount of years for each or just renamed. And also which groups are helped/hurt the most by the change.

I've never been to a happy hour. Has anyone here ever been invited?

A friend of mine got a gold plated hockey stick for 50 years a few years ago that is pretty cool.

Well not sure if these were "happy hours", but I've been to 2 or 3 private viewing parties (3 hours long) put on by the team at bars, and they were completely awesome

I've been to a few of those, mostly during playoffs. Don't recall any in the regular season. They were definitely better than the team forum at cipriani's last season! Best I can remember was at Stout a couple of years ago with Matteau and ... Vickers?

2 seasons ago I was invited a happy hour before a home game vs the Islanders at Jack Doyles. Open bar and buffet plus Stepan Matteau and Tom Laidlaw were there. Really nice time.

So much for that theory, Knicks tickets came in today. The Pin and Membership card are both included along with all the tickets in a single package. The tickets run horizontal as opposed to the Rangers going vertical. Tickets all have perforations but same tight cut close to the binding

Regular season tickets were activated on the ticket manager on Saturday, finally!

Still no announcement from NYR but I confirmed with my rep that they are good to use

I went to a team sponsored Happy Hour last year, before the Bruins game. Great event. Had hors dourves and open bar. Yes, full open bar as I was drinking Captain and Coke. The reps were there and they had Stemkowski and Villemeure signing autographs, chatting, taking pics. BTW, Gilles Villemeuere has one of the nicest autographs I have ever seen. It is like a work of art. It was upstairs at Jack Doyles.

That would be against the law in New York, teams/venues are not allowed to sell directly onto the secondary market

I guess it depends on how you define "directly". If the team is using stubhub as the official reseller and stubhub also has access to the team inventory, how is that different from what ticketmaster does for the rangers?

In this case, if I was selling my seats and the guy next to me was selling his seats, StubHub would figure out how to make that one transaction.
