For those of you who have unloaded some of your tickets on Stubhub, Ebay, Craiglist, or plan on forwarding them to friends and family, you should be aware of some changes to the "My Yankees" account. The Dodgers' ticket holders experienced the same changes, and the following email was sent to their ticket holders:
UPDATES TO TICKET FORWARDING SERVICEThe option to pass the e-ticket printing fee on to the recipient and to recall the tickets are welcome changes.
Dear Dodgers Plan Holders,
As we begin another exciting season of Dodger baseball, we would like to point out some changes to the ticket forwarding process available on MY DODGERS ACCOUNT.
When Forwarding Tickets:
1. An invitation will be sent to the recipient to accept or decline forwarded tickets.
2. You will have the option to set the time frame in which the tickets must be accepted.
o An email reminder will be sent to the recipient 24 hours from your selected cutoff time.
o If the tickets are not accepted within your time frame, the tickets will not be forwarded and the original tickets will still be valid.
o You may also cancel the pending invitation as long as the recipient has not yet accepted the tickets.
3. Select who pays the $2 per ticket forwarding fee.
o You now have the option to pass the fee on to the recipient of the tickets.
As the Recipient of Forwarded Tickets:
1. Open your email notification and click Accept Tickets.
2. Log in to MY DODGERS ACCOUNT.
o If you do not have an existing account, you must now create one.
3. Confirm your delivery selection and select Accept Offer.
o If the original ticket holder paid your forwarding fee, then you are done.
o If they have asked you to do so, then you'll be prompted to enter your credit card number.
Another welcome change for Yankee season ticket holders are changes involving the connection between the"My Yankees" account and Stubhub. As we mentioned previously, Stubhub and the MLB have a ticket sales agreement. Now, the two have combined to make coughing up your 15% commission even easier. A new link has appeared in the "My Yankees" account that allows the season ticket holder to sell their tickets:
Clicking the sell button prompts you to link your Stubhub account to your "My Yankees" Ticketmaster account. It must really kill Ticketmaster to send potential customers over to the competition, but everyone is making tons of money and the egos are pushed to the side.
Remember, once you receive those tickets, BE CAREFUL WITH YOUR BARCODES!
