Got a flyer in the mail today offering waver of all $100 per seat activation fees. Buy 4 or more seats and get an autographed jersey from the #2 overall draft choice. They can't acknowledge RG3 just yet, but I wonder if he knows they already have work cut out for him off the field. :cool:
Conclusion: the $100 per seat activation fee now exists only to be waved; in an attempt to make the consumer think they're getting a discount of sort. Seems like this baiting tactic was reserved for later in the offseason in recent years, now it happens in March.
Wow, that actually pisses me off. 2 years ago I filled a complaint with the BBB because of the $100 per seat fee they charged. Nothing really came of it except a bad note on their BBB file and an email from their VP of sales asking me to tell them the matter was resolved (which I never did because it wasn't).
this shouldn't really upset you. i think by now everyone realizes the team is having trouble selling tickets. the only way to fix that is to adjust the cost, or justify the cost by producing a winning team. they can adjust cost now, they can't produce a winning team in march.
they can't just lower prices, because if they do then when they're winning they'll take bad press for raising prices. so they waive fees to try to get people to sign up. standard business practice, nothing to get upset about.
