Do you want to attend Comic-Con 2013?

Badges will go on sale in early 2013.
To participate in online badge sales,
please read the instructions below carefully.
STEP ONE: SIGN UP FOR A MEMBER ID. Click here. Anyone who wishes to purchase a badge for Comic-Con 2013 must have a valid and confirmed Member ID. Member IDs are free and available to all juniors and adults (age 13 and up). Children (age 12 and under) may not sign up for a Member ID, but may register for a badge onsite with a paying adult. For more information on child badge registration, click here.

STEP TWO: CHECK YOUR OPT-OUTS! Once you have signed up for a Member ID account and confirmed your email, log in to your Member ID account and confirm that you did not opt-out of email correspondence. This information is found in the "Change My Preferences/Unsubscribe" section once you have logged in. If you "opt-out" of email correspondence from Comic-Con International, you will not receive notification when badges go on sale for 2013.

STEP THREE: WAIT PATIENTLY. Comic-Con badges will go on sale in early 2013. You will be notified of the sale date and time via email at least one week prior to badge sales. This should allow you enough time to receive the email and plan ahead. Comic-Con will not announce the badge sale date and time on Facebook or Twitter.

Tips and Tricks to Obtain a Comic-Con 2013 Badge:

We strongly recommend that you read all of the information about badge sales on our website. General badge sale information — including pricing — can be found here. A helpful FAQ can be found here.

Monitor your email carefully. The badge sale date and time will be sent to you via email only. Check your email frequently and be sure to check your SPAM folder just in case.

Subscribe to the Comic-Con and WonderCon RSS feed.

Follow us on Facebook and Twitter.

If you are planning to purchase badges for friends or family, be sure to collect their LAST NAME and MEMBER ID. You will need this information to purchase a badge for someone else.

Comic-Con badges sell out very quickly. All badge inventory was sold out in 80 minutes last year. You must log on to the badge sales website as soon as registration opens to increase your chances of purchasing a badge. You will not be able to purchase a badge if you log on several minutes after registration opens.

Work with a team! Those who are most successful in obtaining a Comic-Con badge are those who work together. If you are a family of four who want to attend Comic-Con, we strongly recommend that all four family members attempt to access the online badge sales system when registration begins. This will increase your chances of purchasing a badge.
Although we are continually working to improve the speed and efficiency of our online registration system, purchasing a badge can often be a challenge if you are not prepared. We recommend that you read our helpful online Badge Purchase FAQ. The FAQ contains valuable information that may give you an advantage in purchasing a badge over those who choose not to read it.

Although SDCC makes efforts to ensure the purchase of badges is easy, efficient, and equitable, SDCC makes no guarantee, warranty, or representation that, by logging onto the Web site with a Comic-Con Member ID, you are entitled to or be able to purchase a badge. Due to the limited number of badges and the large volume of Comic-Con Member ID holders, badges are sold as long as they are available. Please be advised that SDCC badges sell out very quickly. Not all persons eligible to purchase a badge will be able to purchase a badge. Additionally, SDCC makes no guarantee, warranty, or representation that the Web site will function properly throughout the badge sales process. In the event that the Web site malfunctions, SDCC will try to rectify the problem in a timely fashion. Notwithstanding, by using the Web site you agree that IN NO EVENT SHALL COMIC-CON, ITS PRINCIPALS, AGENTS, REPRESENTATIVES OR AFFILIATES BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OF ANY KIND WHATSOEVER, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO DAMAGES RESULTING FROM THE USE OF THE WEB SITE OR THE BADGE SALE AND REGISTRATION PROCESS.
