    Totally disappointed, it rejected 4 credit cards for my three days with the error "Credit limit reached"... I got single days to make up for it but none of those cards have limits (and they all have the funds on them!)

    Still says Virginia for me, but I'll keep an eye on it
    If it's correct, it's correct. The bug was during the info entering process afaik.

    You can log into your showclix page and change it, i went there and did find it changed to AL and was able to change it back to Ontario.
    Oh neat, thanks. Seems to have let me fix it.

    I wonder how many people read the forums or noticed their confirmation. I bet a lot of strangers in Alabama are going to be getting surprise passes in the mail a few months from now.

    I would be that Showclix will probably go through and fix the screwed up submissions. PAX knows about the issue so I doubt they'll just ignore it.

    Hopefully for those that do not see it will still get their tickets if the post office actually does their job. The package will have a zip code on it ... technically state and city should not really be needed as a zip is unique to every city..

    Showclix should sent out an email asking people to check the shipping on their My Tickets page just in case.

    well, hmm, that was awful...the showclix site dumped my order of 3-days at the very end, tried to go back and it dumped me in to the queue! beyond frustrated.

    What was the limit for 3 day passes this year? I got 4, but it was always 5 right?

    All credit cards have limits, should check them to see.

    It was 4 this year and 5 last year. I needed 6 though lol. Thankfully friends getting online soon enough to at least get individual days.

    It was 4 for a bunch of other recent paxes too. 4 is the new 5.

    Okay yeah, they have limits, but the lowest limit was like $1k/day haha. Plus the order I made with individuals came out to more than the 3-day purchase but it worked the first time.

    Help! I placed an order on my phone and got the message "your reservation has been posted". Not knowing what that meant and thinking it might have timed out or something, I hopped onto a desktop browser and placed another order right away thinking my first one hadn't gone through. I was feeling the time pressure and didn't want to wait more than a few minutes to get a receipt. So...I got 2 receipts, meaning I successfully placed two orders. I only want one of the orders, and I want other people to get a shot at those badges. Is there a way to cancel one order or am I stuck?

    Do my eyes deceive me, or was this the fastest weekend sellout in PAX history? I know Khoo said the 3 days were lower this year, but DANG!

    I'm still on the "Get Rid of 3-day passes" team. Given that it's basically the same cost as 2 individual day passes, it kind of makes the whole process maddening. Plus, given the Khoo tweet, why not just eliminate them and keep those available passes for people that are definitely going to make it for all three days. They'd make more doing it, too.

    I understand that sentiment. But I feel like the 3-day passes are collectibles at this point. I cannot defend their cheaper price, but based off the speed at which they sold, I don't think there are a huge allotment of them. I do kind of wish that if you purchase a complete set of individual day passes they'd be combined into a 3 day pass.

    I don't feel like them selling more individual tickets is a money grab either. They're still $45; which while not being a non-trivial amount of money, isn't exactly a lot considering the demand the tickets.

    Oh, there were fewer 3 days than previous years? Is that true?

    I managed to grab 4 sets of single days (another friend grabbed 3 sets). I also got a room at Park Plaza (friend also grabbed us one). My Seaport reservation timed out/errored/sold out as I was literally hitting the check out button.

    I'll keep an eye on the hotel page from now till East to see about switching.

    edit: This might also be my last PAX if this is what I have to do every year. No thanks. Still, excited for this trip.

    Aw man. I managed to lose my debit card at the worst possible time. I was on the order form and couldn't find my card in time for a 3 day.

    Thank you tweet deck and thank you customers for not needing tech support at 3pm while I was sitting ready for a call haha. I got my 3 day badges within minutes. So excited! I probably could have booked the hotel I wanted too but then I got a customer. One victory is enough for today. :)

    I'm actually surprised they sold 3-days this year too. With all the trouble they cause they need to go.

    I just fired off an email to them describing the situation. I'm not optimistic I'll get a quick reply, but hopefully I'll hear back in the next few days.

    Yeah I would not expect a timely replay given the proximity to ticket sales release.

    Reading this thread seems people are getting their tickets sent to Alabama (AL) ...

    So I went to https://www.showclix.com/ to check my purchase and sure enough mine did to. I know I selected MA as my state so something is messing up.

    I just changed it to say MA and saved it so hopefully that works.
    The "Same as Billing" address choice was all sorts of messed up when I tried to order. I eventually just unchecked that box and everything went through just fine.

    While I agree that being insensitive is an issue, so is being oversensitive.

    Didn't get 3 days or westin this year, but got 3 sets of all three days for me and my boys and a 4 day reservation at the Omni Parker House (stayed there last year). Just adopted two boys and we're all going to PAX!!!!! Things couldn't be better!

    Missed the 3 day pass blitz :(.... 8 mins it was sold out. I'm hoping (praying) they will release another batch of 3 days later. This is what I heard they did for PAX Aus, but I can hope.

    Got all 3 single days even though I clicked the link 30 seconds after it was posted.

    That was nerve wrecking.

    Park Plaza is a good place and location. I stayed there last year and got a room their this year. Most of the after parties were like a block or two away which was very convenient.

    Official Pax Twitter feed just said Saturday is now considered in low supply with Friday & Sunday not being far behind.

    If you're on the fence, make up your mind before it is made for you.

    This is my first time going for East and man, I wasn't expecting the rush on 3 Days. I was stuck in a room helping hang a TV for our break room at work (because I'm IT I guess?) and I didn't see the tweet on my phone until at least a few minutes after it went out. 3 Days were already showing as sold out, but I held out hope and just kept refreshing every so often and saw 3 Days go back in stock (I'm guessing reserved tickets being dropped). Yay! Now if only I could get ahold of my future wife before the timer expired...

    30 seconds to go on the timer and she finally gives me the all clear. Yay! SUBMIT! Problem with the credit card, "contact your bank." WHAT?! I triple check my info and submit again. No dice. I'm kicked back to the ticket selection page as time expires and 3 Days show as sold out again. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

    So I just keep refreshing and eventually they show back up as available and I get in again. YES! I enter my info and submit. SUCCESS!

    That was tense..

    Managed to get a 3-Day pass for my boyfriend! I was walking to CVS with my friends when I saw the tweet, so I had to do it on my phone.
