Got my e-mail too.  I promptly took no action.   :D
I’m a big procrastinator. I’ll probably forget to take no action until it’s too late.

At least this was done correctly, it would've been a double slap having show cancelled and not getting a chance to transfer, they knew it would've created a lots of problems any other way.

My friends and I will be requesting transfers, but for my friends, they’re kinda screwed. This year they could only make one day, since they have a newborn. So they only got Sunday. They were gonna skip altogether, but they wanted to be able to do Returning Reg next year. But now they will only have Sunday for next year, unless there will be another badge sale and they get really lucky.

Of course, there was no way they could’ve anticipated this scenario or prepared for it. But still, I do feel bad for them.

It looks like there will be very low refunds so chances are extremely low for your friends to get an additional day. I'm telling people that because 2020 is canceled, the badges we got are simply what we'll have for 2021, no more, no less.

Just wanted to take a moment to give a HUGE shout-out to CCI.  This situation sucks for a myriad of reasons out of all of our control, and CCI handled canceling both WonderCon & SDCCI EXCEPTIONALLY well!  They essentially delivered what the majority of its attendees wanted for SDCCI, and have seemingly made this process as EZPZ as possible.  Whether you're a 2020 badge-buyer, or a Pro CCI has taken care of us and I appreciate everything they do, have done in the 20+ years of me attending their events, and continue to do to make their experience as great and attendee-friendly as possible!!

Bravo, CCI: I look forward to your next WonderCon, Comic-Con, and the Museum - all hopefully coming spring-summer 2021!!

Out of our entire 15+ buying group, I only had to refund one. The form was easy, and I already received an email receipt for my refund. I will keep an eye on my credit card.

i think we will have to wait and see what peoples plans are for 2021. A lot of stuff has not been dialed in yet, weddings/family stuff/international travel etc. I believe a lot of folks are indeed rolling their badges over right now BUT as we get into next fall/winter and the reality of a trip sets is, we may see some folks deciding to not attend sdcc '21.

But they have to decide to rollover by July 1. After that, I believe the badges are non-refundable...?

I think that they will have the normal refund policy (the less 10% restocking fee) came into affect sometime after August or maybe even in the new year, I think that the July 1 date is only for a complete refund.

You may be right, but that's is not what it implies on their refund page.

All refund requests must be submitted by July 1, 2020. Your Comic-Con badge purchase is non-refundable after this date and will be transferred to Comic-Con 2021.

Well that's true, I guess we can only wait and see.

good catch... curious tho, tbh, i'd expect cci to revert to the 10% penalty scenario, just so they'd be able to resell those badges. I can certainly understand not being able to deal with the ramifications of the 10% refund policy tho.
that's the nice thing about CCI and ReedPop tho, they are capable of making running changes to policy if there's a good logical reason.

July 1 may be the deadline to refund 2020 badges, but at that point they’ll become 2021 badges. I’d expect 2021 badges will have a different timeline for refunds (and probably the 10% fee.)
