I would like this type of service. I think $5 - $19 is reasonable
considering the prices of some of the show tickets. Currently, we may see
only 1 show per trip to Las Vegas because we can't get the tickets sooner
that 7 days in advance. Jackie Haile
* Might be
convenient for some ... don't let the surcharge be high.... $5 to $10 per

tickets a year... PatBoytos

B.) Depends on whether the tickets are discounted enough. If not, no. If
C.) None, but will buy two this year. EEPerdue
* Yes I would like
to have this service although 5 - 10 dollars is more reasonable for a
service charge unless this would also include mailing them. When we

5 shows MSobjak

* I appreciate you
starting this service. It would be ideal to know that a company like
yours would be sending my tickets. I would have no worry about
dealing with your company. The service charge seems very reasonable,
when I buy tickets for other events around the United States there is
always service charge of at least this amount. Dr.

* a. No, I wouldn't care
for this service.
b. No, the surcharge is extreme.
c. Varies--1-3 per Las Vegas trip
* A.) No. When I can call ahead to almost all of the
showrooms, using an 800 number, to purchase tickets via credit card. Then
I just have to pick them up at the box-office on the day of the show.
Calling on the telephone also lets me choose which seats I want where this
service is available.
B.) No. What are they providing for that service? If they allow you to get
better seats. Or, if they can get you tickets ahead of when they are
available to the general public.

nights per visit. We try to see a show every night -- comedy shop to
review to headliner. Richard Pinter
