Ticketmaster Can Suck It

March 10, 2009

I’m very excited about this:

TAL ticket

But I was not very excited about this:

TAL ticket receipt

The ten dollar “convenience charge” is a load of crisp bull hockey. I want to say they should just hide that and make it part of the ticket price from the get-go, but I would have been much less apt to go through the whole process thinking the ticket was $60 instead of $45.

To add insult to injury, their convenience didn’t end with a two-stadium-hotdog charge for what should be free, they promptly start sending you unsolicited emails for crap you have no interest in. When you try to remove yourself from the list, they respond with a vague “please be aware that you’ll still get emails with offers from folks we already shared your email with.” Thanks!
