So excited for everyone to have a chance at these badges.  If anyone is able to get an extra Thursday badge, please let me know.  A friend of mine has a Saturday badge and is unable to purchase Thursday because of this.  Please let me know!

This made me so happy. My roommate for the last two years only had a Thursday badge but is still coming and is Australian so she was totally shut out of the resale, so I was frantically texting her to get online.

Hope she ended up getting a Sunday. This was a great win for fans who were shut out.

She did! Took me spamming her with about five different links, but eventually we got one that worked for Canada where she's living.

So true! Because I bet most of the people who were on SDCC's  facebook today were the people asking for guest spots. Lot's of people on their site today - the comments sections are very cheerful :)

Yes I am aware they are not transferable and perhaps I should have clarified that we will be there on Thursday so IF there is some way to get a Thursday badge, please contact me!  Thanks so much and congrats to all who are going now!

Thank you so much but unfortunately he only has a Saturday badge which makes him ineligible to purchase for Thursday :(

Badges are STILL AVAILABLE!  Correct me if I'm wrong...but that must be a new record since they started doing the online sales!

Goes to show how a soft openings work much better and the truly dedicated can get rewarded!  Just my humble opinion on that though.

Cheerful indeed!  Very nice to see!  Might change after the badges are all gone though!  Lol! Very happy to see this working out for everyone!  I hope all on here who wanted a badge ends up with one!  :)

I get this nagging feeling that Epic lost count of how many badges are actually available and are just gonna keep selling.

Odd to go from sold out to how old, let's check inventory to some transactions didn't complete so there are now badges to several hours of open registration.

Guess we'll know come July when there are 300,000 people trying to get into Hall H. ;)

I wonder if they've also increased the allotment for Thursday.  Even though all days, sold out, Thursday was still WAY less crowded than Friday or Saturday.

I just got a Sunday ticket. Wouldn't let me buy a second ticket for my son. So then I attempt to use his ID to register only to find out he never confirmed his Member ID! I need one more Sunday (junior or adult) ticket. I am a newbie to this process... Was locked out for hours during the sale day. Can anyone help me with buying a single Sunday ticket? The notice said "Your Comic-Con Member ID is ineligible to purchase another badge for today’s sale." Anyone know if it reset at midnight?

If we just show up at the show on the Sunday, is there any chance of getting in? We will be coming from Seattle so would love it if there was at least a chance!

THANK YOU!!!

Since badges are tied to individual member ids, there's no way for you to buy two of the same day without a second id.

Unless your son is young enough to be eligible for a child badge, not really. Even if badges haven't yet sold out, there's basically no way they won't be by the time SDCC actually starts.

They do not sell badges on site. Is your son under 12? I believe he can get in with you if he is, and not need his own paid badge.

If your son does not have a Member ID, he cannot get a badge. However if he is 13 or under (i.e. age 12 on August 1, 2012) then he can accompany you for free and does not need a badge in advance.

I hope everyone that wanted tickets was able to get them. I have a strange feeling that they lost count of how many tickets the sold because they seem to have pulled tens of thousands of tickets ou of thin air.

Yup. Only Sundays are left now! I guess a bunch of lottery winners only wanted Saturday and/or Friday...

Unfortunately, my work server has been unable to connect to Friends of CCI since we added the shoutbox so I wasn't able to get a Thursday for my sister  :-\ but fortunately, FoCCI is usually one of the first sites that I check when I get home so I was at least able to get her a Sunday badge!  ;D

Either the lotto winners only wanted Fri. or Sat., or CCI was holding the badges for whatever reason and did not need them anymore.

Sunday badges are all that's left.
It's probably because some people don't want to go Sunday sine it's the shortest day.

Oh, definitely.  Given that it's the 50th anniversary, I'm really surprised more Whovians haven't snatched up those Sunday badges.  I think member ids are definitely part of the issue though--I keep seeing people on Twitter/Tumblr mad over friends/relatives not having ids and thus not being able to purchase badges.

It was the revelation that completely snuck under the radar that the Thursday / Sunday badges were available to anyone worldwide that sent the UK Attendees Group into a tizzy - they totally kept that quiet at the end. Cue: us, messaging EVERYBODY that had said they didn't have any badges whatsoever in a mad panic...!!

Just got on on a moment ago and Sunday is still available.
This somewhat surprises me. I'd have thought the Internationals would've already snatched 'em all up.

I'm not big into Dr. Who(never watched the show) but Sunday is definitely worth it to attend.

I just logged in with my son's id (he's not going) and it still lists Sunday badges available.  Of course he's still a Junior not adult...but still it amazes me that there are still ANY badges left at all! 

Took a screenshot...but not sure how to add it to this post.

I am not sure why everyone is so suprised that there are still Sunday badges... CCI said there were 3100 Saturday badges for the resale, there were likely 5 times that amount or more of Sunday badges. At this point, people are not going to spend $600 on a flight domestically. $1000+ internationsal to come in for one day. Then hundresds of dollars for a hotel... Pretty much the Sunday badges left are going to locals or people within driving distance. I'm guessing most of the locals already have their badge(s).

Oh, it would not surprise me if CCI decided to sell more Thursday and Sunday badges because they are the lightest volume days and they can probably count on a good 20% of the 4-day badge holders not to show on  1or both of those days.

Congrats to everyone else!

I'm surprised, because given how much hype surrounds SDCC these days, and for every sale for the past few years you had to be in the waiting room within minutes to even get a chance to get any ticket--it seems like the type of event that would have tens of thousands, even hundreds of thousands of people that would be willing to drop everything at a minute's notice, let alone a month's notice, just to get a piece.  Apparently that's not the case.  Or maybe they really have gone over the hump of their 15 minutes of fame.
Title: Re: Thursday and Sunday Badges Still Available until Sold Out
Post by: Transmute Jun on June 19, 2013, 11:39:31 AM
Agreed. In the general sales, Sunday badges are the last to go, but they do go, and relatively fast.

I think there are 2 big differences here: first, we are now less than a month before the Con, which is very late to make travel plans if you aren't in the local area. Second, the availability of Sunday-only badges was not advertised, so 'locals' from the LA/SD area who might be interested in a one day trip haven't necessarily heard about the badges.

Post by: Jim Watari on June 19, 2013, 12:21:13 PM

I think one reason was the fact that anyone who had 4 Day or Saturday was being blocked from even logging on to the site, that's want happen to some friends of mine and then they realized they were leaving on Sunday anyway so they did not pursue it . I'm a programmer by trade and I can see this as being a bug that nobody really wanted to fix. They pretty much went quick and dirty with the code change to allow international memberIDs into the system , but forgot about the code for blocking the 4 day and Saturday badge holders.
Title: Re: Thursday and Sunday Badges Still Available until Sold Out
Post by: susanml10881 on June 19, 2013, 12:30:44 PM

I'm surprised because Con has consistently sold out and there are never tickets left at this late stage. Plus there are many people complaining that they could not get badges and offering to sell their first born for badges in online posts. Yeah Sunday is not like the other days but there is still stuff going on. Any day is better than no day at this point -

I think the membership id reg closing down probably shut out many people. Yeah maybe Sunday only would shut out people from out of state but there are a lot of locals and some people that could only get one other day badges. But it said Sat badge people were shut out of this sale. Maybe if they had been allowed to buy them, they could have gone faster. Some of them probably couldn't get other days.
