If you're experiencing an invalid promo code error message, it may be cached data from having entered the code before the sale began. Refresh the page and clear your cache, and you should be good to go.

I didn't ever hit enter until two minutes after sale was to begin.

Same here, code invalid, attempting not to panic so I'm glad/sad to hear we're all experiencing it.

Chrome is telling me the code is invalid, and IE is in the waiting room.

Tried thru the email and thru my profile page.

Had a friend try flushing cache and all. I suggested a reboot PC and that seemed to get her in the waiting room.

cleared cookies in safari and am still receiving the invalid code message. One would think the guys who sell thousands of tickets could build a website that knows how to handle cookies, its not like its new technology...

Promo code was invalid before 12pm as expected, at 12pm it got me into the Waiting Room, then told the code was invalid again at 12:06pm.

Did directed sale sell out in 6 minutes? I cleared my cookies and am in the Waiting Room again (thanks Nipple), but it would be good to know if the sale's effectively over.

If you have two browsers open maybe the code has been used on the one, so it won't open in another browser?

Ok that is just bull, I was in the waiting room and then it kicked me back to the enter code screen with the error that the code was invalid. Cleared the cache and entered the code again, I'm going to be mad if this caused me to lose my spot in the queue.

@SLOKnightfall - ticket on-sales for popular events are always kind of a mess, through any ticket provider.

@A-RockLeFrench it's not a cookie issue, it's a cache issue. Clear your cache and reload the page.

That just happened to me too plunk so I re-submitted back into Opera browser and I'm back into the waiting room but can't get in on Firefox now.
