My guess is they were hoping to push more people into full season tickets, but this plan is backfiring.
I sent mine a note yesterday afternoon asking for his gut feeling on the exchange coming back and/or any other ticket related perks that may be of benefit. I have yet to hear back, but if anything of note I will let you know. Thanks for passing the above along.
I'm curious if you heard back from your account rep yet?
I'm in a similar situation as a lot on here, I have a 1/2 season Red Package and one of the main reason's I've had the package was because it allowed me the flexibility to exchange tickets, and since I travel occassionaly for work, without the option to exchange tickets, I see no real benefit in renewing.
I was out of town when my packet showed up last week and now that I looked it over, I'm shocked at all the changes. We use to get a 5% discount for signing up early in addition to being eligible for some of those contests. Now I see no incentive for signing up early other than a freaking scarf? My Arena Credit is going down from $250 to $200 and now I have 4 ticket vouchers whatever those are?
My tickets are in the lower bowl corners and I think I paid like $42 a ticket and now it's going up to $46? Then I look at stubhub and see tickets in my same row being sold for around $20 or less on most nights? I've been a season ticket holder for over 10 years, was recently chosen as an MVP before the game and now I'm leaning towards giving them up, and going the stubhub route like so many others. I sure hope someone in the organization realizes they are killing even their die hard fan base and does something to stop this before it's too late.
