different name on credit card make a difference?

Postby riverrunner » Sun Aug 05, 2012 12:41 pm

I used my brother's credit card to purchase a ticket on the open sale just now.
Will that be an issue at will call when I arrive to get the ticket?
We have the same last name...

Thanks,
-nick

have you contacted bmorg? it's required that you have an ID and confirmation number with you to pick up tickets. there's also this:
Q: Can I buy a ticket in the limited sale and then do a name change?
A: No. Tickets bought in the limited sale are non-transferrable and can only be used by the person who buys them.

They're looking for the name on the ticket, not the credit card used. You're fine.

It sounds iffy - either way.

Thanks for your input. I'll try bmorg and see if they can shed any light of clarification.

It'll only be a problem if your brother's not planning to go to Burning Man, since his ticket purchase isn't transferable.
