Tell them you will renew if they pay for gas. Idk how you can make that trip from GB consistently for Bucks games. I commend your loyalty.

You can get lower level tix for the Bucks-Raps game on the 2nd for $13 on Stubhub right now.

Pass on the season tickets. Money you save from not getting a season ticket package you can use to concessions and merchandise.

I got 4 season tickets after Bogut pick, whittled down to two three years later, then quit after one more year.

its too much, esp with the weather if you drive, you never know.

Well then clearly I'm not reading it wrong judging from other comments.

My best guess is the full season ticket holders complained about the half season getting many of the same loyalty benefits, understandable I guess. So they just scrapped it altogether for the half and made it less for the full. I did see they decreased the ticket prices, mine went down $3/seat. But for me the other benefits were more beneficial.

I emailed my rep to see if this is serious and we'll see how that goes.

your seats went down in price? mine went up $3 per seat? i will not be renewing if this is the case. i used to pay $10 per seat upper level corner, only 4 rows up, great seats. but now $15 and not even a warning of price increases just a invoice. puah u got to be kidding. go f yourself bucks organization. seriously

Based on what I reviewed, it would appear that the value of the packages as a whole has indeed dropped. Whether from price increases or decreases in benefits or both.

I always felt that the day I dropped my season tickets would be the franchise low point and the team would be moving shortly thereafter. So to keep up the good mojo, I keep renewing and keep hope for better days.

However, tonight I'm really pretty close to being done here. Assuming we make no serious and reasonably good trades tomorrow combined with this decrease in the value of the package, I think I'm probably done.

Another feature of the renewal package is the emphasis on getting your "2013 playoff tickets". Good Lord they need to give that a rest. Just give me a team with hope and vision and I don't care about "playoffs".

Unfortunately at this hour it looks like Bucks fans are getting the shaft again on all levels. Herb, you've got about 14-hours to change the ship, otherwise at 2pm tomorrow I think the Bucks do finally hit that iceberg.

Summed up very well and I share many of the same thoughts. Its going to be an interesting day.

Like someone else here ... I also just got my Packers season tickets, after waiting 27 years. Glad I switched, it was worth it. Got 6th row in section 135, too, and not the new nosebleeds. No clue how that happened.

As for the Bucks ... I love the Bucks, I don't know any other way and I do consider myself a die-hard fan. BUT ... I'm taking a stand for the first time in my 40-year-old life ... I'm not giving this team another f'ing penny, until Herb Kohl takes off and goes and f's himself. I'll still watch, pay attention, etc. But I ain't spending sh*t on this team, until I see a better way of running things.

Hopefully, someone from the Bucks is seeing all these comments. The cutbacks in perks and seat price increase makes no sense,when the Bradley center is half full most games. You would think they would cherish the few loyal fans they have left! How they ever came up with these ideas in planning for the upcoming season is beyond belief! Agree with PP, it is close for me to jump ship too!

I broke it down...

So last year I got for $825: 21 Games (2 seats), $100 Concession Card, 3% Accured Interest (approx $15), 4 Upgrade Vouchers, $300 in Ticket Bank. Plus for redeeming early I got a "loyalty bonus" of like $35 for concessions or towards ticket balance.

This year the offer for the same amount of games & seats is: Ticket Credit (amount unknown), In-Season Perks/Promotions, and an Exclusive Scarf. This all for approx $700. I'm not exaggerating, lol.

And the loyalty program that remains for full season subscribers is MUCH worse than the one they had in place last year.

For me its a matter of just being done with it, waiting it out to see if they change some of the benefits, or buy in 1 more year and see what next year brings. Today may be a big day in seeing the direction of the team.

Just when I was in the position to start researching if season tickets would be worth it versus going the stubhub or Craigslist route 10-15 times per year.

Sounds like I shouldnt waste my time.

Lower level, non-baseline or corner tickets for ~$20 (non-Laker, Thunder, Heat, Bulls) sounds like the route I'll be sticking to.

With the likelihood of a major trade going down by the minute, this could indeed be the iceberg as PP put it. I think the remaining diehards are going to lose it, there is no benefit incentive anymore, and this team is on the verge of falling out of the playoffs again. If we stand pat we are not making it, period.

Half season, upper level ticket holder for several years. Part of the reason I get tickets is the benefits. I know I can't make every game and I sure as hell know I can't resell my tickets. So the benefits (concessions card, interest, prizes, ticket bank, etc) make up the difference. With this stuff gone, I'm gone.

If I can pay $15 to sit lower level for just about any game, why would I even consider renewing at this point?

The first year I signed up I got all of this years benefits, plus 10,000 Midwest Express miles, which pushed me over the top for a free companion flight. 2013-2014 benefits would include: free ticket forwarding, exclusive email updates, and a scarf. :roll:

Talked to my rep today and for any half season holder here I did get confirmation that the loyalty and exchange programs are for the full season holders only. The half season does get 4 "ticket credit" which he said can be used as upgrade vouchers. And there isn't any concession cash for the half season 400 level anymore.

But we got Redick today... :-?
