OK, I don't want to rock the boat here but why was a Sunday 2 day admission more expensive then a Saturday 2 day admission.? Yes I know Sunday is only one day.

Also I didn't think to ask but if your pay for an extra admission are you entitled to get another Vamp promo from the NSU Table? I guess I missed out as I just thougt of it.

I hope i am correct in saying this but your admission and the cards that go with it have nothing to do with cards given out at the NSU table.

Yes I did have the dollar off coupon otherwise it would have cost me $16 rather then $15. I guess even though I was only able to go for one day that I was charged a one day admission and when I asked for an extra admission it was for another one day admission price. Could I have then used 2 dollar off coupons?

I don't want to make a big deal out of this as I want to support this show and hobby. Next year can I pay ahead for a 2 day admission and just go the one day? Anything to save some $.

Were more promos given to people who paid for an extra admission on Sunday?

Surely on Sunday you were charged for 2 one day admisions - you can hardly buy a 2 day pass when there is only 1 day left. Whereas a 2 day pass purchased on Saturday got you 1 admission on Saturday and 1 on Sunday and a slight discount. Makes sense to me Big Grin

there shouldn't be a Sunday 2 day admission
as there is no second day after Sunday

Saturday I bought a one day admission and used the $1 off coupon
I then asked for a second admission and also used a $1 off coupon for that
- they only allow one extra admission per person

this extra admission gives you an extra pack of the promo cards they give out with admission
- promo's given out with in the show are at the discretion of those giving out the promo;s

I did the same thing on Sunday - using another 2 $1 off coupons

I know they have a discounted rate for buying a 2 day pass - but I never saw anything posted

I thought they had a rule you had to pay for the one day in order to get the extra admission
and couldn't use the 2 day

either way I don't mind supporting them

Hammer did you get my PM ?

OK so that answers one of my questions. I could have used a discount card for the one extra admission. I really didn't even want to start this topic but I was curious. There was a sign at the desk 2 day admission $12. (I paid $15-it would have been $16 but I had my $1 off flyer) Being that it was the Sunday they charged the daily rate of admission. I actually had a postcard on me for another $1 off but did not think to use it--stupid of me!

The whole reason for the extra admission was to get an extra set of promos to trade since so many people were requesting them. I originally picked them up for someone who is getting them elsewhere. So I have one extra of each except for the NSU Sonja card which I did pick up for my 1 admission but didn't think to ask for on the extra admission I bought. Not sure if they would allow it anyway. Did someone pay for the extra admission and get an extra set of all the promos? Not just the ones at the door.

Hi Frank, have a look at my website (in my profile) for what I have in stock. I am interested in getting your promos.

A 2-day admission ticket does not get you two packs of promos on the first day, only one. On day 2, when/if you come back, is when you would be given your 2nd set. I manned the front desk for the first time ever on Saturday for a little while. The admission prices were clearly posted on the table along with a sign stating that a 2nd admission purchase was allowed, but the limit was two.
