  1. 2017-18 Season Tickets Thread

    Due to unfortunate circumstances I had to cancel my purchase of Vegas season tickets. I’ll definitely look into securing a pair of seats for the Seattle franchise. It’s gonna be a great rivalry, and I like the idea of having double the opportunity of seeing some of my other favorite teams.

    The introduction of the variable pricing model as well as all the different game categories have made it difficult to calculate the game-to-game STH discount. For an entire season ticket package the discount is roughly 20%. If someone is considering purchasing season tickets, basing their decision on last seasons secondary market single game prices isn’t smart. It’s been almost 20 years since the dawn of the Burke era and the franchise began its climb out of the league basement. Last seasons secondary market prices were among the lowest I’ve seen in those 20 years, and most certainly not an accurate representation of the norm. No doubt about it, last year was a great time for the average fan. $20 for a pair of upper bowl tickets is an amazing deal. Unfortunately those prices weren’t available during the period of early 2000s up until a couple years ago. When the team becomes a legitimate division and playoff contender again, the wait list will start over and those $20 pairs might not be there anymore. My friend is happy not owning season tickets today but he’s the same friend that was offering $5000+ for a stanley cup finals ticket, that’s the trade off. Personally I love my seats, and I plan on enjoying them for many seasons to come regardless how well or how poorly the team is performing.

    If you feel up to the task there’s another thread discussing how to set up a StubHub account with direct deposit in Canada. It was agonizing but we got it figured out. Saves the extra step of going through PayPal to get your money, might save some fees also.

    I agree, if you don’t attend you shouldn’t be held responsible for whoever used the tickets. I also understand that this happened during a time when there was still a wait list for season tickets. I don’t see them enforcing something like that now where there’s no wait list, renewals have plummeted and average attendance is the lowest it’s been in over a decade.

    Jovo’s right. If you’re going to unload tickets it’s best to stick with Ticket Exchange. It’s the only method of re-sale endorsed by the NHL. It’s also the only method that provides security for the seller. For example a few seasons back, in a desperate attempt to unload a pair of tickets after getting a late call-in for work, I used Craigslist. I received a call from my rep a couple weeks later asking if I attended that game, I replied no and was honest and explained why and what I did with the tickets. Turns out the douchebags in my seats got trashed, were physically thrown out, snuck back in and got into a very physical confrontation with police officers and were thrown out a second time. Due to having a good standing and this was an extremely rare occurance, my tickets were not revoked. The rep explained in the future to stick with Ticket Exchange because when sold that way liability falls on the buyer. Using any other avenue it’s still on the original owner.

    Just to clarify, did you post tickets for sale on StubHub but upload the wrong .pdf?
  7. StubHub Canada Direct Deposit

    I just checked my account and my payments were finally received earlier today. It turns out the account information RBC gave me initially was wrong, and the StubHub instructions for setting up direct deposit in Canada need to be updated. I’ve told them but we’ll see if they actually make the changes. The account you need is the RBC US High Interest eSavings account. StubHub is allegedly working on developing partnerships with other Canadian banks but currently, this account is the one you need. On StubHub you must enter your full name exactly as it appears on the RBC account. Although it’s called a savings account it is in fact a chequing account so make sure you designate it as such during the set-up process. The correct ABA/Routing number is 026004093 not 021000021 which is the number RBC initially gave me. When I inquired about this the rep I spoke with couldn’t tell me why the latter didn’t work. She said one or the other should work but in my case it was the former. Lastly, when it asks for your account number you must include the transit number of your branch in front of it. Enter the 5-digit transit number followed by your 7-digit account number. Without the transit number the bank doesn’t know which branch to send your money to. I hope this helps. I’m questioning whether this was worth the hastle but at least I got it figured out, I was getting really irritated lol. Receiving payments will be easier from now on. This is a link to the page I found that helped me, big thanks to this guy. https://bradt.ca/blog/transfer-from-paypal-to-a-us-dollar-account-at-a-canadian-bank/

    Smart move. I make it a habit every September to pick the games I’m keeping and share/gift/post the rest before opening night. Last minute posts as we see regularly don’t work. The seats really need to be attractive to catch the eye of last minute buyers (aisle, row 1-9, club section...). $10-$15 USD seats on StubHub are a good deal but not everyone wants to sit in the middle of row 12-15 upstairs. Despite losing Monday and last night, they’re still playing well. 140 shot attempts in those games lol, that’s crazy. They’re getting more exciting to watch. Dedicated fans are already attending, casual fans will soon take notice. I’m confident we’re gonna look back and feel relieved that we stuck it out during the tough seasons. With the great seats I have now, I’m already grateful.

    I don’t know about others but I plan on bringing a couple family members. They can take advantage of my 30% discount and buy some Christmas gifts. In that regard it’s nice to have the extra tickets.

    Because despite the owners claims that they’re hockey fans, they’re still businessmen first and foremost. They’re very smart, they marketed cheaper tickets this year but in reality it was just a big price shuffle between all the new categories. A lot of STHs are still paying the same amount as 2011, despite the drastic drop in on-ice product since then. The only way we’d see a significant drop in pricing is if the renewal rate for next season crashes. I won’t be part of it though, I love this team and I believe we’re experiencing the early stages of something great.

    Great tip, thanks for sharing.
  12. StubHub Canada Direct Deposit

    Yeah Curt, if my last attempt to fix the issue doesn’t work I’ll do the same. This was supposed to make things easier and cheaper but it just hasn’t been worth all the trouble.
  13. StubHub Canada Direct Deposit

    Yes they should, or at the very least provide us with more details as to why a deposit was declined. It would make fixing the issue much easier. I checked out the RBC website and found the correct ABA/Routing number for receiving US funds, it’s 021000021. Re-enter your direct deposit information in your profile then contact SH and ask them to re-send your payment. I talk to them through chat support on the app, wait times aren’t long and it’s available 24/7.

    I’ll definitely keep this in mind, thank-you.
  15. StubHub Canada Direct Deposit

    Yes, I figured that was the reason for it. It makes complete sense from a business standpoint. It would be nice if they could allow more flexibility for Canadians though. Let us list in CAD, and not restrict us to one bank.
