I picked up a Thursday badge only, but it’s ok. I volunteer precon, And make Saturday my off day. I usually use Friday for offsite stuff, and head home on Sunday. So I guess I’m saying my minimum expectations were fulfilled.
Sdcc 2016,2017, and coming soon, 2019.

7 codes trying for 3 badges. One got in with Thurs/Sun left, but we were Saturday or bust, so didn't buy anything.

First year joining a larger group. About 20 computers up and only 3 got in. Sisters and I were able to complete our pass to include preview, 2 others were able to get 4 days and one for 2(I think) Still needed my cousins and uncle’s passes, which didn’t happen.

The You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login buying group was spectacular...again.  I couldn't believe I was able to get in twice and was able to help others as well.  Ben was cool and calm and that helped me be calm as I typed away.  I was running computers in 2 different rooms, and had to run between them (at work..shhhhh!)  I had my stash of Mallomars, which kept me hyped up, too.  This is the lifeblood of fandom.. helping, trusting...I love it! 

All hail the buying groups leaders, the tech gurus, the helpers who were there even though they already had their badges, and..heck..all hail us all.  Yes!!!

Our group of six got all the days we wanted! (4days for most of us, PN for a couple of us who were coming in early)

Even after we secured an extra couple of codes from friends not going, and made a pact with another group of six, AND was offered help from people here at FoCC (shout-out to @geargirl), I still had a bad feeling about today.

But one in our group got in st 9:09, and the moment she confirmed purchases, I got in. And then we had one more session get in, in which we were able to help a couple of my friends who were in a group of six. Unfortunately they got otherwise shut out, so it’ll be only them two.

So overall I’m happy, but I’m also sympathetic those who didn’t get in.

I already had my badge, but I was running codes for others and managed to help out 6 other people in our buying group. Made me feel really good!

After my entire group got shut out during Returning Registration, I was thrilled to get in right away at 9:07 PST. Got 4 day+PN for my group of three.

This will be my fifth year attending (out of 8 years trying), but this is the first and only time I've gotten PN, so I'm super excited!

Was hoping to help out others on the forum with our other two codes, but neither ended up getting in.

I was able to get 4Day+PN during return reg, but I logged on with a few personal reg codes to help out others. Our buying group did awesome! Managed to fill in a nice chunk of PNs for people in the group. If you discount PN, I think we got 100% of my group what they wanted (I need to double-check this, cause that sounds crazy) :o. I got in twice and was able to get 3 for my group plus another 3 for a different group. Wow!

We had 7 codes and were trying for 4 PN badges and 1 badge for any days (the extra codes were from people who didn't want PN) - no one got in. :( The rest of my buying group was covered with at least 4 days so only one person (who was new this year) was shut out.

Wow! My son and I have only attempted to go to SDCC twice, first in 2017 and again today, and both times thanks to the BenEatsRice buying group, we have gotten 4 day badges (no PN)!!!  For all those that have been trying for years and struck out, getting into a group is the only way to go!! Thanks Ben! You are THE MAN!

First timer here... we were able to get all 4+PN thanks to my husbands code... Never realized how hard it was to get tickets. Now I am looking at hotels and realizing there is still much to figure out...

Our group had 32 people looking for badges, 12 looking for PN-only (who had 4 days from the presale) then the rest looking for full weekend or various other days. Interestingly, we had a bunch of people get in at the beginning and were able to get PN for all 12 PN-only people & full weekend/PN for 4 others! But, our rate of entry slowed down after that so unfortunately missed Saturday for a few people. But we were able to get the other days for the rest of the list.
