From an email sent out to members of the San Diego Comic-Con for 2012 – there have been some issues with the Comic-Con memberships, so there’s going to be a small second chance time window for getting badges. Other sites have been carrying the letter with the link, but most have removed or redacted that. Since unfortunately we missed the window ourselves and are not members, we don’t have the link either, unfortunately. However, if you know somebody who does, this is what the letter said:
As you may be aware, badge sales on March 3rd did not proceed as we had hoped. All of us at Comic-Con have been working on trying to make registration as stress free as possible, even delaying badge sales to accommodate new and updated information. Obviously we still had issues that resulted in some people not being able to purchase the number of badges they had hoped. For those who missed an opportunity to purchase a badge due to the email link delay, we will have a very special second chance badge resale of returned and refunded badges!
The Comic-Con second chance resale will be open only to those who had a valid and confirmed Member ID as of February 29th, 2012. Additionally, anyone who has already purchased a 4-day badge (with or without Preview Night) or a Saturday badge will not be allowed to participate in this resale. This special badge resale is only for those who missed a chance at purchasing a badge, not those who wish to upgrade or change their badge selections.
The purpose behind not allowing anyone who purchased a Saturday badge to participate is that Saturday badges were the first single day badge to sell-out, so those who purchased a Saturday badge had the opportunity to purchase a Thursday, Friday, and/or Sunday badge during the online sale, but voluntarily chose not to. This special second chance resale is only for those who did not already have the option to purchase all 4 days.
The special resale will begin on March 27th, 2012 at 8:00 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time (PDT). There will be no link provided on our website or any social media sites to access the sale directly. Comic-Con cannot however, stop people from posting this link if they receive this email. Posting this link will only decrease your own chances of obtaining a badge by encouraging people to access the waiting room even though they do not have a qualifying Member ID.
Please note, this link will not be active until 8:00 a.m. PDT. If you click this link early, you will receive a “404 – NOT FOUND” error page and you will need to close your browser window and click the link again at or after 8:00 a.m. PDT. We recommend that you bookmark this link prior to the sale, copy and paste it into your browser, or manually type in the URL.
The badge purchase process will be exactly the same as the March 3rd sale, however, you will only be able to register up to TWO people total during your online registration session, and you must have the unique Member ID and last name for each individual.
