FYI: My season ticket invoice just arrived for 2019

Recommended Posts

I go  to a couple of games a year but never had season tickets myself. How much are the heated seats?

They start at $1600 or $1700 (depending on a 1 or 3 year term) & go up to about $3k.

As much as the Bills can sucker out of wimps like @mead107 and @BringBackFergy  No need for real men to sit there.

Just read they increased first row of the 300s by $500/seat. That’d be a little tough to swallow if that’s my seat.

Last years December proved why having seasons many of time is a losing venture if your concerned with money. My wife and I use to love those insanely cheap games because you could get great seats for virtually nothing and still have fun without the massive investment. I loved having seasons in 2016 we were section 143 and paid $1300 for both which I thought was fair and having seasons for sure worked out better money wise that season even with three straight December home games given the price for the Jets night game and Steelers home game alone.

 

Our big thing why we didn't renew was the time commitment. September and October you could get back to Rochester by 6ish most of the time, but once Nov/Dec hit it was 7:30-8 and that just killed the day. I still think at some point we may return to seasons though it was a great experience.

Thats pretty much where I'm at. I love going to games, but in December I was worn out and couldnt get anyone to buy tickets to the Bills Lions barn burner we were all treated to. I sold 4 lower bowl tickets for $90 total. They are roughly 70 a piece normally. I cant keep taking hits like that. 

 

It would be cheaper to just buy 4 games over the year and pick which ones I want to go to and I'm leaning that direction

Upper level 50s (334) went up $2 per game. I'll renew. Relocation happens in Mid-April. We'll see if anything is worth upgrading to.

You can always slide down a railing and move down a level as the game progresses...🤔

It's a shame you wasted your 15,000th post on a plebe like me.

wow, where did you read that? That would make them the most expensive seat in the house outside of clubs no? 

 

I am just a few back, always wanted to get to front row..maybe not so much anymore LOL

 

Agh.. I think I see what happened. The first row even in the outer sections not between the '30s is still a very desirable seat, and think those are the seats that came up to the true value. I did find the note about the $500 dollar increase bringing that guy's two tickets up to $1834, and that's what I am paying fro two..paid like $1784 last year..so $50 more per seat..eh ?

That's where I have been for years and we have saved money because of it. For example 2017:

Pre-Season vs. Vikings: $30 total with fees

Raiders: $150 with fees

Saints: $165 with fees

Colts: $100 with fees bought before season

 

Total: Spent $445 for 4 of the 10 games and mind you that the Raiders and Saints game were two of the most expensive that season. I think we did well.

I cant mathematically reconcile this information. I am sure there is a detail that I am missing. If the price per ticket went up by $3 and it was an increase of $60, this would lead me to believe that you have 20 season tickets. But then you say 'for the pair', which would imply an increase of $6, not $60. What caused the additional $54 increase for the two tickets?

 

Edit - This sort of feels like one of those 'Jimmy has 12 pies' situations...

You are more of a ABC than a 123.

This is exactly what we’ve been talking about for the last few years. It’s simple supply and demand. The people in the 1st row of the 300’s have 3 options. 1) Pay the extra money 2) Cancel and someone else will pay the money 3) Move to another location and someone else fills that seat

 

The Bills are starting to “right size.” They have been WAY underpriced in certain areas for a long, long time. You see more and more price codes as analytics have picked up. Teams are trying maximize revenue and the Bills are laying the groundwork for the new stadium (or whatever is on the horizon).

Trying to figure out the new pricing chart is a bit dizzying.  There's actually some pretty big bumps in certain areas.  Row 1 of the upper deck sees a big jump in price.  Notice the color for 300 level one extends left and right in a thin yellow line.

That salmon colored section seems like a great deal. Only $450, and the alcohol is free!

Just want to point out as someone mentioned above, I misread the article, it was +$500 total for two seats in the front row of the 300s.

 

So, $250/seat, which is still a pretty big hike all at once.

They can try to set up PSLs....

 

when the Leafs moved to the new arena they wanted to inflict it on the upper tier and it was rejected in a mass revolt by patrons

..if the Bills built a Lucas Oil Field type stadium ($700 mil in 2008 which is approx $840 mil today), doubt Pegula would pony up the money.......so I cannot see where PSL's and increased tickets prices are ruled out......our corporate suite is 75 grand a year for 20 people...would be $225k in Jurrah's or Boy Danny Snyder's house...we'd be out as would others....food & beverage as well as transportation brings us north of $100 grand....

If it's a dome/covered stadium, I'll probably end up dropping my seats and just buy on the secondary market for the few games I make it to a year. The major reason I keep what I have currently is that I'm covered by the 300's above me.

Putting a $15,000 license on the equivalent of the RockPile seats would be fine?

 

 

Suites and lower tier between the 20s would like it or lump it
