Any postings asking or offering more than face value for passes is explicitly forbidden. This includes implications of over face value as well as explicitly stating so. Saying you will "talk about price", providing a link to, or any other methods of implying that you are asking for or willing to pay more than face value are also covered here. Anybody caught doing so will receive a serious infraction and have their posts deleted.
Now that 3-day badges are gone
Here's the thread for selling/giving away your PAX tickets or finding tickets once preregistration closes. Due to extensive price gouging over PAX East, all passes must be made available at face value
(at current that is $55 for 3-day passes and $35 for single day passes
) + shipping (see shipping information below). Anybody who wishes to sell their passes for more than face value must do so off site
(i.e. ebay, craigslist, etc). If somebody tries to sell you a pass above face value through this thread or tries to pull the switcheroo in private: Either PM Moe Fwacky or report his post or private message. Appropriate action will be taken to preserve this rule.
Note: this also applies to buyers. It is NOT okay to indicate you are willing to pay more than face value. If you want to pay more, go to ebay or craigslist. This thread is for FACE VALUE only on both sides.
Use the following formats in your post:
HAVE EXTRA/UNNEEDED TICKET(S)
Best Contact Method
How many tickets you have
What type of payments you take (legal trade only)
How you will distribute tickets (mail badges, personal handoff, etc)
If you are looking for a ticket, use this format:
Best Contact Method
How many tickets you need
How you are able to pay
Preferred method of receiving tickets
Please everybody, stay honest and don't be a dick
Because it is too late to request changes to shipping/registration info, people will have to exchange passes in person or through the mail after they have arrived at the original purchaser's house. Please be sure both parties understand the circumstances before agreeing to an exchange.
Important Information about Shipping
Some people might try to gouge through shipping, instead of ticket cost. Be sure to check usps.com/prices/
, to make sure you're getting a fair deal. As a rule of thumb, a flat rate, ship domestic envelope is $6, and Express Mail overnight is about $14. PAX passes fit into a standard first class envelope, but weigh a little bit more than a first class stamp will cover. Check the USPS link for international rates, or (for outside the united states) check your local postal service website.
We encourage people to ship COD to ensure fair exchange.
Please report anybody who asks an unreasonable shipping amount.
More Important Information About Passes
The PDF print out and bar code is not good enough. When picking up passes from will call, a person need the barcode AND the photo ID of the person who bought the passes from the PAX website
. To sell your pass, if you don't already have the plastic badge, you have to pick it up at will call first.
