“Once more into the breach dear friends…” -King Henry the V, Shakespeare
TicketLeap sent out an information email reminding fans that SDCC tickets go on sale this Saturday. They have apparently partnered with Amazon’s servers to ensure that a crash doesn’t happen again. So hopefully third time will be a charm. They also included some tips on how to best complete the registration. Below is from their blog page:
Comic-Con fans, rejoice! The announcement you have been waiting for is finally here – tickets are going on sale for the 2011 International Comic-Con in San Diego. Mark your calendar for Saturday, February 5 at 9 a.m. PST when the ticketing link will go live on Comic-Con’s registration page.
Want to make sure you snag tickets to the largest comic book and pop culture convention in the world? Here’s our tips for ticket buyers on Saturday:
- Do NOT create a TicketLeap account at any time. These accounts are only for people hosting events. We don’t pre-store credit card information for ticket buyers, you will have to enter it manually on Saturday when you purchase tickets. By not creating an account before, during or after tickets go on sale this leaves our Support Team free to help those who need assistance.
- Have your information ready. Be sure your credit card billing information and each badge holder’s information is 100% accurate. If you enter your credit card information incorrectly, a pending charge will be placed on your card and your tickets will NOT be purchased. You will need the first name, last name and email address of each badge holder to complete your purchase.
- Don’t time out your session. Once you have successfully put tickets in your shopping cart, you have 15 minutes to complete the necessary buyer information. If you take longer than 15 minutes your tickets will be released.
- There are no phone sales. Comic-Con tickets can only be purchased online, so have your computer ready at 9 a.m. PST on Saturday.
After you complete your ticket registration and submit payment information, you will receive one e-mail confirmation from us. Then starting on February 8, EPIC Registration will begin to send out bar coded e-mail confirmations. You should expect to receive your confirmation from EPIC within 3 to 4 business days of your initial TicketLeap purchase. You will receive one bar coded confirmation for each badge/admission type. This is your “ticket” to Comic-Con International.
Please add the epicreg.com domain to your safe senders list so your confirmation will not go to your spam folder. If you do not receive a confirmation within the time frame above, please contact EPIC by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. Your email should include your TicketLeap confirmation number and the names for which you did not receive a bar coded confirmation.
Good luck to everyone purchasing tickets on Saturday!
