So ticketmaster isn't recognizing my voucher code. And apparently, the twitterverse is having the same problem. Sigh, doesn't surprise me at this point

Why are you questioning whether or not this makes me a "fan"? As far as I'm concerned most "fans" aren't going to the games, which is a reflection of how most people feel about your buds up there

Because to some "fans" it's now fashionable to blame the owners, hate on them and quit on the team. Even for the littlest inconvenience. Instead of taking a second first and asking questions (or just be patient), it's just easier to blame it on Harris and Blitzer even though they have nothing to do with it. My "buds" saved MY team from imploding in on itself and God knows what else....

Have to really agree here.. Every issue, big or little, is being blamed on new ownership.. Really doesn't make any sense as they are not actually involved in any day to day activities.. Now making a thread about the issue is fine, but making a thread directed at complaining about ownership for this issue solves nothing

And sure it's an inconvenience but I'm also sure it'll be worked out one way or another.. I'll be shocked if they do nothing about it.. So just relax and use this thread as a place to share news once they announce how it's being rectified, not a place to just berate ownership

Who said i'm quitting on the team? You make me sound like a Rangers fan when they lose 2 games in a row. I just think that these owners aren't putting in the effort like Vanderbeek did. Even when Vanderbeek didn't have money, you could still tell that he cared deeply for the fans

Well whoever conceived of this voucher really screwed the pooch.  If you figure the team has 10-11000 sth/plan holder tickets sold for this game, that only leaves about 5000 tickets available when you take out the club section (obviously not available through this).  They absolutely gave out more than 5000 vouchers the other night and everyone could get a max of four.   You do the math as to how many people are actually going to get what they want.

 

At least the other offer split it over two games.

Rectify what?  It was clearly a first-come first-serve voucher.  They didn't actually promise tickets.  Most people didn't 'pay' much for them and the money went to a good cause.  It's just an unneccesary inconvenience for the people that didn't get bupkus (which was clearly the majority at this rate) and more bad will the sales department/owners didn't need.  Maybe if enough people make a stink about it they'll have the codes be good for another game, but I'm not holding my breath waiting for that.

I think it's ridiculous to blame the owners for this.

 

BTW, where are you putting in your voucher code RangersSuck23?

I'm definitely calling to complain to someone.

This board, while it doesn't represent every fan, it's a good way to get an idea of how fans feel or the experience they're having, a poll of sorts. If no one here is saying they got 4, I really doubt there's a lot of people that did. Right now I only got 2 tickets out of each voucher for a total of 4 tickets, in different sections of course. There were multiple times I had seats in the lower bowl pop up for me, only to get that unable to process screen when I tried to buy them. Happened like 3 times. Now I have 2 in the goal bar and 2 in 230.

While I did get to see a game, I bought tickets to the LA game under the impression I'd at least have a shot at getting 4 tickets out of my voucher, so long as I was ready when they opened up the process. That's money I wouldn't have spent otherwise and that I could use right now, but with the thought I'd get the extra tickets, I told myself it was worth it.

Getting to see a whole extra game is nice and I would have been happy with that if they just gave vouchers for 2 seats instead. They must have known almost no one would get 4 at all, much less together and still marketed the LA game as if that were the case. The marketing was intentionally misleading imo and that is what has left me to feel like they pulled the wool over my eyes a bit here.

In their defense, the vouchers do say "Tickets subject to availability".. I mean you're definitely going to have unused vouchers so it makes sense to give out more vouchers than you have tix for.. It's basically first come first serve for redemption, and the point was to donate cans to charity, so I mean if the tickets run out then you just weren't quick enough but it's not like you've lost something you were given

I put that much in my post later...but really this is just something else that was predictably going to blow up on them and did.  When you make people wait a couple weeks to rectify the vouchers you better not have any bugs in the system at least.

They gave anyone who showed up with 5 or more canned goods for the LA game on the 15th 1 voucher good for up to 4 tickets.
