Ticketmaster Sucks

I needed to buy some tickets to a show today. Seu Jorge is coming to town and me and the Scarymommy need to go.

I get to the ticket delivery options and am faced with this:

How insane is this. To print out my tickets, saving me a wait and Ticketmaster the costs of printing and mailing, they want to charge $2.50. If I am willing to wait, and Tickemaster pays the cost of printing and mailing, it's free.

What kind of insanity is this? They should be paying me to print out the tickets...

I mean it's not like they aren't getting paid. Between the Building Facility Charge, the Total Convenience Charge, and the Order Processing Charge, they are soaking me for an extra $22.05 just to buy the damn tickets.

Crappy monopolistic Ticketmaster. They suck.

Amen. I bought some Nine Inch Nails tickets and had the same problem. They suck big time. You should rate them on Check a Biz like I did! (plug plug) :)

Maybe if they were Gwar tickets it would be totally worth all the fees.

I'm hatin' on TicketMobster. I have many stories, like the time I went to the door to get Rev. Horton Heat tix @ $15 ea. and was told I could only get 'em from TicketMobster and they took me for $20 = 25% of the price was their take.
TicketMobster is all bad, but can't live without 'em. They liqidated the competition.
