I guess people purchase through mobile aren't getting prompted for their member ID.  I see an issue coming in the near future.
I noticed this as well...

Yeah, I was surprised by that. Was never prompted for my member ID. I see a storm coming...

My GF and I both have AHA memberships.  I ordered both sets of members only tickets with the same credit card, different AHA member numbers.  Anyone think this will be a problem?  2 on each member number.

Made it through the regular site, finally.  Two tix for each session   ;D .  Fortunately, when the countdown timer for each transaction timed out, it let me "save for later".  Then once it started working, it actually just let me click through them one at a time.

I'm not sure about the Colorado Convention Center, but a many venues have exclusivity agreements with TicketMaster.  So the Brewers Association may not have a choice unless they want to switch venues.

I can't imagine they'll revoke any tickets sold this far.  Or at least I don't know how they'd go about verifying all the tickets sold thus far.  Ticketmaster doesn't exactly scream customer service.  If they do go after people who purchased on mobile and didn't enter their AHA #, I hope they do it in a convenient way... I mean, we did pay convenience fees right??  ;)

Don't they have some kind of package deal for buying tickets to all of the sessions at once this year?

Given that non-members could purchase through the mobile site, I expect a lot of scalpers probably expected that if they know the system, and bought it out.  I was lucky, I got mine but most of my friends missed out on the Sat afternoon.  Total mess with Ticketmast, spent 20 mins on the phone to be told I had to buy online, except online didn't work.  And separate transaction fees for each session?

Between Ticketmaster headaches, prices going up again, and non-members bumrushing the mobile site, GABF isnt what it used to be.
