Any news on when playoff tickets will arrive?
« Topic Start: September 27, 2012, 10:43:34 AM »
Between worrying about magic numbers and Clippard and if it's going to rain on the day tickets arrive at my door and a million other Nat-related topics...

I am a mess.

But boy, isn't it great to have these kind of worries the last week of September?   :D

I've already got the tickets I bought from the STH presale. They came via regular mail like all other tickets you purchase through you rep if you're a STH. The scrips have not arrived and I understand they are being mailed as we speak and you will have to sign for them.

Has anyone gotten a confirmation email with a tracking number for the strip shipments?  My rep said we should be getting that, but I haven't.  It's sort of a pain to have to be home to receive the tickets, so I'm hoping at least to be able to follow online when they might be arriving.

How are we supposed to sign for them if they come during the day when we're at work?

Usually they'll leave a tag on your door indicating they attempted delivery and will try again - there will normally be a contact number on the tag as well.

I started getting them delivered to my work address years ago.

And now FedEx will let you go online and ask them to deliver a package to the nearest FedEx office and you can pick up the package when you want. Check the notice they leave for directions. If they deliver it via FedEx, that is.

Good suggestion.  Thanks.

I really hope I get to use 3 of the World Series tickets. I don't think my heart can take using the 4th.

Mine were supposed to arrive via UPS by 15.00 today at my office but thus far have not turned up...heck, I didn't even get the tracking E-mail (spoke with someone at the ticket office earlier today who said I should have gotten one - she checked her records and mine are supposed to be on their way).

EDIT - just arrived now (delivered to the wrong office - two offices share our room number) and they do look nice!

Got mine today. Odd, only tickets for 3 NLCS games. What if we have the home field advantage. That's four games. Am I missing something?

How are we supposed to sign for them if they come during the day when we're at work?

UPS is really pissing me off.  Our dumb driver attempted delivery yesterday, but didn't leave a slip (he's done this many times in the past).  He left one today with the 2nd notice box checked - I went online to try to see if I could get it held at the Chantilly UPS office (which I've done in the past for many items) for pickup this evening, but the InfoNotice number wasn't recognized online.  So I called them and they told me there's nothing I can do and that someone has to be home to sign when they try again tomorrow.  He said they can't pull it aside.  He did say that they would keep it at the office after the third and final delivery attempt (tomorrow), but the InfoNotice says that it will be returned to the sender after the final attempt.  If my playoff tickets go into UPS limbo, I am going to be furious.  I can't take a day off work to sit on my ass and wait for this bozo, so I don't know what to do :panic:

EDIT:  I decided to call back and I spoke to a different agent who couldn't have been more helpful.  He couldn't get the InfoNotice number to come up either (so I'm not sure what the first rep was going off of).  I never got an email from the Nats, but my rep responded to my request for a tracking number (glad I did that!) so I gave the UPS guy that number and I just got a call back that my package is ready for me to pick up tonight.  Woohoo!
