Just got an email to purchase my Trade Pro badge

I got mine too.  Wow, doing it BEFORE open registration.

That makes sense, but I don't believe they did it that way last year.

I thought I had read that it was after Open Reg last year. Its kind of throwing me for a loop...does anyone know if I buy a trade badge will they still let me do Open Reg to buy for others? The email says I may not do Returning Reg next year but there is nothing about Open.

They could always change their policy, but I believe you should be able to do it.  I just bought my Trade Pro badge for myself and a guest.  I may still participate in a buying group to help others.  Since I just got renewed, I have a few years to worry about getting back on the regular badge list.

I can only speculate because it's a new thing having Trade Pro registration before Open Registration. But I *believe* that you can register as a Trade Pro now and add your guest later if they haven't run out. The Trade Pro badges will likely last through the deadline date but Guest badges won't. In the past, the purchased Guest badges have been available long after the window opened. It's the complimentary Creative Pro badges that are most limited.

I will wait to get my Trade badge -- our results with Open Registration will determine which way we go. Guest badge would go to someone we can't get in during Open. I'm eligible for a senior discount plus I can't attend on Sunday, so I'd save real $ if I get in through the lottery.

I am not sure you can add a guest later - for Creative Pros it is my understanding that you had to add your Guest at the time of registration - you might want to get a clarification from Comic-con.

I really hope I can still do Open Reg to helo my group. We did so poorly in Ret Reg that I ended up just buying the guest badge now instead of waiting. Don't want to take any chances!
