2011 Ticket Info

2011 Ticket Info

Postby SnowBlind » Fri Dec 17, 2010 12:20 am

Just found the 2011 ticket postcard in the mail. Looks like the website hasn't been updated yet, but here is the info from the post card.
Am I remembering wrong, or are those the same prices as last year? That would be the first year in a while that the price hasn't changed.

Tier 1: $210 - 9000 tickets (limit 2 per person, online only)
Tier 2: $240 - 9000 tickets (limit 2 per person)
Tier 3: $280 - 9000 tickets (or until 3/31)
Tier 4: $320 - while supplies last

Who will be the first person to post a picture of the 2011 ticket here? I'z guts ta see it!

In the spirit of the holidays, I will mail free of charge and postage paid one of my deluxe, super duper, laser cut necklaces to the first person to post a picture of the 2011 ticket.*

* If you work for BMorg and have the ticket in advance, then that's not fair!

you're on...lol ( no it probably won't be me. I would have to run home from work, scan it, load it, transfer it and I am kind of inept at that sort of thing) But I'm gonna try.

Will you accept a link from flickr/photobucket?

Keep the faith---you may be the only person reading my offer here!
To post a photo, just click the IMG button above, then past the image link and close the tags. It will look like this. I added a "." so it would post.

No luck with the picture yet? Super curious as to what they'll look like too.. other than coming pre-perforated in cute little 1/4" squares.

The presale tickets were to ship by December 19th, so they would be in hand for a Christmas gift. I think this is why there is a premium in the price.

Be the first to scan and post a picture of the ticket on this thread, and a stainless steel Burning Man necklace will be in your mailbox before you know it. As an added bonus, I will be sure that it had actually been to the playa and has a dusting of playa dust on it. What better way to start off the New Year!! :D

Wow, that's cutting it a bit too close.. especially if they are charging a premium so that people could have them for Christmas presents. Look that poor Tamara paid extra and still doesn't have them on the 23rd. Not cool..

REally? I think it was so that they didn't get snatched up by people trying to jump the whole low price thing in January.

Still no tickets. bm says shipped on the 20th. doesn't look good for under the tree. oh well, we just bought early so we wouldn't scare ourselves away from going. Don't really need them for the tree, but DARN IT, i want that necklace

Because there's a shortage of tickets and we're in danger of selling out by February?

No. Because they want the tickets to be under the tree (or whatever, Kwanzaa, Secular Humanism, Hindu.) If they were first tier, they'd be in the pockets of those who take off the day in January so they can have a shot at the lower price tickets, not "gifted" for the season.


Do you suppose there's now some sort of "Gifted of the Magi" variant for this subj-culture?

Ordered ours on 11/20 and still haven't received them! XMAS has come and gone. Spoke to a "Marylin" in ticket sales and she basically said "tough luck" and hung up on me. I paid a premium for this?

This is all my tracking number got me:

Label/Receipt Number: **********
Class: First-Class Mail®
Service(s): Signature Confirmationâ„¢
Status: Electronic Shipping Info Received

The U.S. Postal Service was electronically notified by the shipper on December 18, 2010 to expect your package for mailing. This does not indicate receipt by the USPS or the actual mailing date. Delivery status information will be provided if / when available. Information, if available, is updated periodically throughout the day. Please check again later.

so it never did say it was actually mailed, just they were notified of the intent to mail LOL. Wish i could do that. Hey boss, i intend to work sometime this month. hmmm, don't think it will fly

I think next year, a full color printed IOU given as a Christmas gift would be in order. As a fun bonus, you will be saving $70 per ticket that you can use for yourself, instead of giving it to these numb nuts at InTicket!

True Shambala... But no quite like having the actual official ticket in you hand. Kinda loses the WOW factor. But, yes, instead I get the OUCH factor. It sucks.

I saw a picture of the ticket on FB. It has rainbow gold foil lettering and what looks like a dust storm scene in the middle.

Looks like the tickets are starting to arrive. This was for a person in CA so YRMV.

I have seen the most spectacular rainbows while on the playa. That is a cool image to have on the ticket this year.

No, they mailed them. I'm just sad to hear that once InTicket has your money, the important part of actually mailing the ticket to you on time, is not followed through. Also, there is a $12 "secure mailing fee" which in the past was called insured shipping. BULLSHIT! It's mailed as "First Class" with signiture confirmation and NO postal insurance. A fireball candy is added to the package, not as a treat, but to keep the cost of shipping DOWN. A weird clitch in postal rates make it MUCH cheaper to send an envelope 1/2 inch thick, than a flat envelope when adding the signiture option.
Further, a lost envelope with $500 worth of tickets is not the same as a $500 gold and diamond necklace lost in mailing. It's only a few pieces of paper with under $2.00 in postage to send them. That's why there is no postal insurance on the envelope. They still charge $12 for shipping charges, but no longer call it insured, and will bust your balls if it gets lost in mailing, despite collecting the $12 fee from thousands upon thousands of participants.
There is also a $4.75 FEE per ticket and a $1.00 FEE per order in addition to the inflated shipping charges.
I guess InTicket was Burning Man's choice, but it's stinky having to deal with them.

As I recall, when the llc was doing its own tickets, things were a right royal mess.
And they didn't want to go with Bass or Ticketron or whatever the big company(ies) is. Does seem that in this case, they didn't perform too well.
