Agreed - member since 2005 and the ability to buy extra tickets at a “discount” is worthless to me, since I have a full season plan and already can’t get rid of those that I can’t use without losing value.  What I lose trying to sell regular season tickets would more than make up the premium added to the price of any playoff tickets off of stubhub.  Now, if they gave me PNC club passes for each seat for each game for the rest of the season that would move the needle.  Other than that?   Can’t imagine being enticed.

So does this mean they're actually planning on raising the price of tickets for 2020? For a team that's almost certainly not making it to the playoffs again anytime soon, they might be shooting themselves in the foot.

If they gave everyone PNC access, it would soon make that benefit pretty worthless as well.  That being said, I get 10 passes a year, but they aren’t super stringent about keeping count.

You mean N&S Club, right?  I think he did as well...

Yes. If it were the diamond club, that would be some benefit..

They raised prices last year, so we can opt in for 2018 prices for one more year. As long as they are fielding a 2010 team, that's the price level that would bring me back.

I meant PNC club.  The Norfolk southern club we already get.   They want my money literally 10 months before the season starts, some free food and drink seems like decent incentive. 

Modified to add that the “benefit” is free tickets to 2 different games.

Seriously? Free tickets. I already have more tickets than I know what to do with. Also, where is our season plan holder gift. They sent an email a couple months ago promising one was in the works, but I've heard nothing.

Caps at least give you a couple hundred bucks in e-cash.

We got a pin.  You can pick it up at the season ticket holder lounge.

There is something else. It got put on back order. We will get it later this year when it comes in. I just got off phone with rep.

Bonus is also 4 tickets to the game on July 23 and 4 tickets to game on August 30 (Labor Day weekend).

The fact that they are giving away tickets instead of jerseys or paper weights shows that they set a lower value on the tickets.

They'll almost certainly be too damn cheap to ship it out, so we'll end up with just two dates to pick it up, and if you aren't going to either of those games, you're SOL. That's what happened with the All-Star Game complimentary gift.

Just remember. The customer is always wrong.

Got my second renewal notice this week. Maybe a phone call would be smart on their part. If I don't take the discount there is zero chance I'm renewing at a higher price. Of course who would call me, my rep from last year quit a couple months ago. Three in three years and now no one this year.

For $60 the Nats will sell you "Loyalty pricing" on tickets to their enchanted Christmas thing. $60 to buy a discount code for tickets where they have not yet announced the full or discount prices.

 My email to stcomments: "This is all well and good, but you know what would be really cool? If you made the 8/17 game not blacked out for RCR point redemption."
No reply, of course, and if they actually make that change I'll be stunned. The game is at least available for exchange.

It's the Corbin Bobblehead day. I imagine that's why it's blacked out.

Did you already opt in for 2020? I didn't and I don't have the option for playoff strips.
