Season Tickets! New Face Value Pricing Format...

Been out of town a few days and I just arrived home to find my season tickets waiting for me. One change that I'm happy about is they've place more "retail" pricing on the face value of the tickets, but I'm curious as to the process of assigning the prices.

I'm in Sec. 302 and my seats are $35 per game, so my two tickets total up to $700 for the season. In years past, each ticket would show a face value of exactly what you paid, so for me, all tickets would have a $35 price. I've never liked that because if I do have to sell my tickets, then my face value shows up less that what a single game ticket would be and someone might haggle, saying..."Hey, the face value is only $35 on these?" But, at the same time, a single game ticket in the same section would be priced much higher.

I'm guessing that management heard this feedback and adjusted the pricing. Now, I have tickets that visually show a range in price from $30, for the two pre-season games, to $65 for the Eagles Monday night game and $65 for the Saints home game. Others are hitting at $40 and $55. I didn't pay any price other than $35 each, but the Falcons are showing a higher value for certain games. It's an interesting change that I'm happy about.

didn't even look at mine but with the different prices it kind of smacks of a perceived value/ marketing b.s thing to make a season ticket holder(feel better about prices paid "money saved" and maybe not drop them) or the non- season ticket holder worry about pricing (like uh oh ) if i just want to go to "good" games it will cost almost as much as just buying season tickets

Kj, you might need to get a calculator out !!! Believe me your added value is not showing more than what you paid for them in total. As MOST seasons ticket holders of the NFL have made it very clear for some time now ,that they are not pleased with the pricing of preseason games costing the same as regular season games . No one wants to lose a dime:(players , owners & NFL) so who better to screw than the season ticket holder ! The 20% of total cost that went towards preseason is now 13% but the difference is not saved but to make the regular season games even more expensive to the season ticket holder.I don't get it!I do like the idea of charging different prices for premium games but don't pass the junk cost on us. Why not past the cost onto the individual ticket buyer that saves his money on not purchasing preseason and or all regular season games and quiet milking the faithful!!! Oh they are ...everyone is going to pay for it !!lol .McKay was all about giving options when they went to different payment options and about 20 different price range seating choices from years back when there was a lot fewer ( color coded seating locations ) to pay from. Give us another (Choice) ...to not purchase preseason games or should I say practice ( none counting ) games. There is absolutely no value in them . Season ticket holders continue to dump them for more than 50% off the cost. Restaurant.com has upper level seats at even a better deal than the upper level ticket holder gets. Anyone not agree, I have some valued preseason tickets just for you .

From my position, I find it nice to see a "higher" value placed on games so that if I do end up having to sell my tickets, I can easily say, "The face value is $65 on these." As for having to buy "practice" games, yeah, I agree they're not real games, but I usually will sell my two uppers and pick up four lowers to take my whole family to. My daughters love the experience, whether it's a real game or not.

There will always be some who view the price as too high and some won't bat an eye. I had four lowers on the 42 for a couple of years and paid a lot of money for those tickets, but I was living large then. Now, I can't imagine paying that much as my income has changed drastically. But, I'm very content with $35 per ticket...especially after paying $140+. It's all relative to your position.

The total comes to what you paid for a seat though. I paid $880 for each seat for the season. They have them marked in value as follows by game:

$60, $60, $130, $75, $100, $75, $100, $75, $75, $130

Add those up, it equals $880. So, the amount you paid is equal to the total - they just distributed based on value of the tickets - with the games against the Eagles and Saints being the highest at $130 each and the preseason games lowest at $60 each.
