Thread: Is there a certain procedure to take when buying from third party?

  1. #1

    Default Is there a certain procedure to take when buying from third party?

    Sup dudes & Dudettes

    I got assed out this year and had to resort to buying my tickets from a third-party

    Now I purchased (2) Weekend 2 GA Passes + (1) Camping that was purchased w/ the tickets.

    I had the person change the shipping address to my address; but they said they weren't allowed to change the name. Anybody have any input on this?

    Also, is there any other precautions/procedures I should take to make sure I don't get ripped off?

    Thanks!

    "dudes and Dudettes" alone makes you deserve to get ripped off.

    Why do people even pretend to be offended by the word "gypped"?

    This isn't really directed at Rick I am just curious

    well, it is a racial slur, though not one that resonates much in the US.

    Look at the first two people that were to comment on this post... Maybe more helpful people like that.

    Not exactly a welcome party.

    Asking for too much I suppose

    with 3rd party tickets you have zero control. They can call FG and state they were lost (even though they were not) and they'll still get re-issued wristbands. You'll have gotten yours and once at the fest....they buzz and tell you 'no' and there isn't a dang thing you can do...except pout...and walk back to your car.

    The ONLY safe place I'd buy 3rd party is Stub Hub ...as creating an account with em is a pain...they take all your info and then some. They'll make sure you get your wristband.
    Just when I think you couldn't possibly be any dumber, you go and do something like this…and totally redeem yourself!
