    My wife and I used 40,000 tokens each to get free Ka tickets. Seats were not together so I called box office and they moved hers beside mine. No problem. Easy.

    Wake up this morning and I get an email bill for a $12.95 service charge.

    My wife gets one for $28.89 + $12.95 service charge for $41.84.

    They don't have my credit card info so are they expecting me to pay this when I pick up my tickets?

    Perplexed.

    Wow! A play on words to the extreme. You get something for free as long as you pay money. What is the $28.89 charge for? I would argue that if they didn't tell you about it. The $12.95 might be somewhere in small print regarding using tokens. I just grumble about it and remember it if I use tokens next time.

    Called the box office the emails went out in error and there is no charge for the tickets. Nice helpful people. I realize I should have called before posting but I was confused.

    I do believe some folks have been charged a fee or tax recently on free MyVegas tickets. Entertainment tax?

    Glad that this was the case. You would hate to have any raw feelings about this while you're there.

    The note states and the person I spoke to also stated to pick them up no later than 4:00 the day of the show. It also states: Tickets may be picked up at ARIA, Bellagio, MGM Grand, Mandalay Bay, The Mirage, Monte Carlo,
    New York New York, Luxor or Excalibur Ticket Offices and Concierge Desks where available.

    I wouldn't leave it too late. If I remember correctly we picked up our Chris Angel tickets last year at Aria the day before the event.

    We just left Vegas we got tickets for Zarkana and Chris Angel really good seats for Chris Angel.. he appeared in the audience right in the row in front of us. The Zarkana were ok tickets no charge for either. I called and got both my husbands and my seats on the same phone call so our seats were together.

    After last nights Q&A with a MyVegas employee, it was clarified when you would be charged a fee for any reservations made by phone when online reservations is an option.
