    Meant to get tickets to Boys 2 Men for Jan 16. Got them for this Friday. Won't be anywhere near Vegas. If you have a ticketmaster account and know how I can transfer them to you and you can take advantage of it, let me know. 2 tickets. Nothing like learning from a $150 mistake. :thumbsdown:

    I would set up a stubhub account or try and list them on eBay besides offering them to the VMB'rs out there.

    In a similar vein, I booked a hotel room near Atlantic City for the wrong Saturday and didn't realize it till after the fact (but before my actual date). I was out $165, ouch! Tried my best to schmooze the manager to crediting me for the correct date, but no go, the property was sold out and my room was empty. Experience is the best teacher.

    Brother booked return flight tickets for a day earlier than he thought. Airline said tough crap. But, we will sell you a walk up fare for a gazillion bucks.

    Hadn't thought about stubhub, but with them being at will call, didn't know how that would work. Time frame is way short, so I was going for some good karma. Figured if I gave them away, the blackjack gods would smile kindly on me when the wife and I made our trip in a few weeks.

    I am pretty sure that the names are going to have to match for pick up at will call.

    Not sure about those tickets but many times at will call you have to present the same card you used to purchase the tickets with.

    There is an option though to "Transfer to a Friend" on the website.

    Really sorry about this.

    We really try to NOT book anything in advance. Not so much for this easy mistake, but because we too often change our mind.
