My regular member number is not working either.  The affiliate number for my wife worked just fine though...

Why does this BS happen every year?

Starting to think that the AHA organizers really don't know what they are doing...

Ditto, dammit. I was on the second it opened up, and the Members-Only tickets don't work.

Mine did the same after purchasing the first set for Friday night and wouldn't authorize my code for Saturday afternoon.  Just clear your browser's history, close the browser, reopen and go back to the ticket sale.  This worked for me and it should let your password authorize.

I actually didn't do any of that, but just kept trying, and it eventually worked! So, keep trying everybody!

In other words, it was failing due to capacity issues & interpreting that as a bad code. One again, the system designers did a crummy job. You'd think they could get this right.

Same happened to me.  Now says high demand, no matches and cannot proceed.  Is it already sold out for Sat afternoon?

Keep trying, for me it said sold out, sold out, sold out.  I just kept refreshing my browser, and it all worked.

I can't believe they and ticket bastard keep screwing this up.  My AHA number didn't work for about 15 minutes, then finally let me buy Sat member ticket, but Friday was already gone.

I'm sooo pissed!

Is anyone having luck buying saturday session tickets?.... or are they sold out?  Please post something here if you get tickets to let us know to keep trying.

Thanks!

I had the same issue with the Sat afternoon session, so I decided to just buy Fri night tickets. The good news is I could buy 4 tickets instead of just 2, so my wife and I can bring some friends.

I wouldn't blame these issues on AHA, but on Ticketmaster. Selling tickets online is supposed to be their area of expertise, but it seems like there are lots of little problems with their system. First, the system tells me my member number is wrong when it clearly was not. Then, when I decided to try for a Fri ticket instead, it accepted my member number and told me I was approved for the Fri might tickets with the farm to table option, which I had not selected. Fortunately when I got to the payment page, farm to table wasn't on my bill. Also, why is ticketmaster the only site that I visit that has that extra credit card verification password? I use Ticketmaster once every couple of years and can never remember it.

I'm not able to get tickets for Thursday, Friday or Saturday afternoon. This is the second year I've been squeezed out. Damn this really sucks. GABF Saturday session is the biggest reason I am a member.

I am pissed!

Hey guys and gals, first post.

I got two tickets for Thursday using the code, but I was not able to get any for Friday.  Just try again tomorrow when they go on sale to the public.  Not all the tickets are put up for pre-sale.

I hate Ticketmaster as much as the next person, but reality is that this is an immensely popular event and tickets are going to sell out fast as it gets more and more popular.
