To dispell a common myth. Ticket master do not hold tickets over to sell on Get me in. It's much more insideous than that.
Please follow this.... They sell a £40 ticket. They Take a percentage from the ticket cost for sale, they then Add their fees when selling. So now the ticket is, say £45 to the buyer. By now they've already made at least £10.
They then encorouge people to sell the same ticket on their sister website Getmein. They add on 10 % to the sellers sale price And advertise a sellers ticket of £50 as £55. When the new buyer enters the purchase process they then add 20%!!! Pluss over £10 postage!! Making the sellers £50 ticket worth £76.75
Think about it? From a ticket worth £40 sold by ticketmaster then on getmein, ticketmaster can make over £35!!!!!!!! Where as the poor person wanting to buy a ticket is left with these stupid prices and the person with a spare ticket barely sees his money back. And is made to look the bad guy.
In my view, they are a complete rip off!!!!! If you want value for money on a resold ticket go to eBay. At least their a £55 ticket is exactly that! It won't cost you £55 plus 20% plus £10.50 postage.
And a further point! How in gods name does delivery of a ticket cost over £10???
