Yes they take debit cards, I never use cash at the stadium

At least the two or three times a year the credit card machines go down and the concessions stands are cash only until they get fixed.

I guess I'll bring some cash just in case.

And thanks all for the advice.  Heading out in a half hour!

Depends on whether a particular concession requires you to sign. The concessions in the 300 level don't, and things move reasonably smoothly (except of course when it's a near-sell-out and they don't open enough concessions)...the Scoreboard Walk does require signature, and that does gum up the works a bit.

What's worse: people on supermarket queues who pay with cheques (good thing Nats Park concessions don't accept them).

Why have four box office windows and only open two of them while the lines stretch down the block? Nats customer service is non existent.

This is an excellent question that could also be asked of pretty much every grocery store and movie theater I've ever entered.

Do concession stands take debit cards?  I hate carrying cash and if I have to I'd like to get some while I'm still here and avoid the $25 worth of fees the banks will charge me for ATM usage.

If it's a Visa debit card, yes, I'd think so. BUt a regular old school ATM card not tied to a major credit card, I'd doubt it.

I found that they speed them up.  I was a quick, "swipe and go."  :shrug:

No they don't, they pay in gold bullion they bought from a company recommended by Glenn Beck.

Clearly you have been too much of TheBlaze TV and late night infomercials. Next thing you will be telling me is that only small c revolutionaries raise alpacas and buy U.S. mint commemorative coins.

Thanks. What a great game! I'm so glad I picked to go to this game two months ago.

Nope. That was stopped about 3 years ago. Well, the shuttle buses at least.

222 is a great section for the price level.  That's where my tickets are and I have no problems, other than a little bit of the RF corner is out of view.  Still, a great view of the field and scoreboard.

I got 224 for the playoffs.  Those sections are the most affordable, so works for me.

If you count that white string thing coming off the baseball net maybe but nothing significant. I am uncertain where exactly it would be in the sight line from that particular row.
