Not to belabor the point, but I came across this solid post on the value of the membership program (from Devils Dominion on HFBoards):
Who's invited to the Devils Flex Membership presentation tonight?
There is really not that much to cover, you pay a minimum of $2,500 with the option of making 12 monthly payments.
When the schedule is released, you call your rep and choose your games, amount of tickets (up to 8 per game) and seat locations based on availability.
You can add games/seats as the season progresses as long as you still have funds in your account. Ticket prices will be lower than box office but slightly higher than what full STHers pay.
You will be entitled to most of the membership benefits too including access to player events.
Great flexibility, should be a real game changer.
It's not for the "cost conscious" fan who scours the cheap seats on StubHub or offers to buy tix on Facebook Group pages for 1/4 of the sellers' cost.
But IMO it is a great fit for these types of fans:
*The Devils fan that had had full season tix at some point, enjoys the STH benefits and attending a lot of games but just cannot commit to most of them anymore and does not want to deal with the time & effort of finding buyers for the games they cannot make. Typically they find that they cannot sell them unless they drop the price below their cost or they end of eating them which causes anger & frustration and leads to many venting posts on Devils fan message boards.
*Small biz owners or sales professional who usually attends around 10-20 games per season to entertain clients, prefers lower level or premium areas, but it's too costly to get full season in those areas. Boom, Flex Membership to the rescue.
*The diehard Devils fan who likes to hit about half of the games and enjoys the player events. He/She now has the flexibility of buying a single ticket to weeknight games to sit with friends in the balcony & drink brews & yell YS! and then 4 tickets for certain weekend games to sit with his/her family in lets say the lower level. Full season tickets was not a good fit for this type of fan.
*The older fan that only likes to sit in the calmer lower level, will go to a fair share of games, never tries or knows how to re-sell their tickets, money/ticket pricing is not an obstacle in their post retirement/golden years.
But they are in Florida or a warmer climate for a few months out of the winter.
Flex Membership fits like a glove as they can now pick the lot of the early & late season games and even a few in between to give as Christmas gifts to their kids and grandchildren. They also want to feel appreciated and a part of something and Flex Membership will do so.
