Thread: I heard that Goldenvoice is going to use cash cards

  1. #1

    Default I heard that Goldenvoice is going to use cash cards

    and not let any of the venodrs take cash. thats awesome! that worked sooo well at the Detour Fest. I especially liked the looong lines at the end of the night when you just want to go home but you have to wait to get refunded on the remaining balance.

    Please say it ain't true GV. that was a pain.

    Noooooooooo.... please don't let this be true. That was the absolute lamest shit at an otherwise pretty awesome Detour fest a couple months ago.

    this was really, really retarded at detour. i bet they made a killing off everyone who didnt use all the money on their cards and were too lazy to redeem them at the end of the night.

    at the start of the day, you walked into the festival, and there were multiple cash card tents at the front of the festival, where you could load any value onto a cash card, with either cash, or your credit card and you then took that card, and you did not loose it (or it was gone...) and you used the card to purchase merch, food, drinks, anything for sale inside the festival...

    at the end of the night, if you had any money left on it, you stood in line at a tent again and you cashed out the value of the card...

    it wasn't as horrible as people say, but it is a bit of a pain in the ass...

    it also serves to help you forget how much you are spending, as it is one more thing you can just load up and use, which helps the vendors...but not your wallet...

    1) Stand in long line to receive and put your cash and deposit on a "cash card".
    2) Stand in long line to use your cash card at any given vendor.
    3) Stand in long line to put more cash on your cash card because you didn't realize how expensive everything was gonna be (always a little more than last year).
    4) You guessed it, stand in long vendor lines again.
    5a) Stand in long line to return your cash card and get your deposit and remaining balance back.

    or

    5b) Give up cuz you're sick of the long lines and just let GV keep what you left on the card.

    the vendors hate them with a passion...but the promoters love them, because they can charge a percentage of the vendors sales...

    honestly, it wasnt that bad. cash out before the last minute you'll be ok...parts of it suck but then again parts of it are convenient. we get over it and adjust.

    i remember days at the warped tour where you had to stand in line to purchase Food tickets...then stand in another line to get food and hand them the lil stub....it was kinda lame...hopefully this aint true.

    no fucking way

    not letting people pay cash for water would be a health hazard

    QFT. As well as being just plain retarded, how would this shit not be entirely illegal?

    I have too many gift cards with 30 cent balances.

    The last thing I need is to add a Coachella card with the same predicament.

    that shit also sucked when the vendor would always ask if you wanted to include a tip on the card cuz it kinda made you feel obligated to do so. i dont mind tiping real bars when they actually pour yer drink but all they did was just reach around to the other table and hand it to you. stupid cards.

    Used those cards at Detour and hated them. Long lines, slower than cash, bad idea all around...unless somehow prices are lower because of less theft / fraud...but I doubt it.
