here is another: If you have a half season plan and are paying the tickets in installments over 8 months, you will have been billed already for 3 installments, or 3/8 of your bill for next year. On 10/10, or the date of the first home game, you will also be billed for your world series tickets. World series tickets alone are about 50% of the 2013 season balance. I'm pretty sure that if the team does not make the NLCS, you will have paid more for unplayed playoff games than your balance for 2013. At that point, will the team refund the excess over the 2013 balance?
The written policy in mailings and on the Web site is no refunds whatsoever, credit will only be applied to 2013 ticket plans. I was told by a rep that they would refund any extra money over the renewal cost, but I requested that she put that policy in an email and received no response. My guess is that the team will send out refunds but like the Stinger, I don't believe that the Lerner family is credit worthy, which is why I passed on my strips and I'm buying individual game tickets.
