New flex ticket packages on sale
Our colleague Stephen Nohlgren wrote all about the new flex ticket packages being offered and why the Rays are doing so in Tuesday's paper.
The team put out official details today, and here is that release:
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.-The Tampa Bay Rays have introduced new Flex Packs for the 2014 season including special Holiday Flex Packs now on sale through raysbaseball.com. Flex Packs are available in three-, six- or nine-game voucher packages and offer savings of up to 60 percent off the single-game ticket price. Three-game packs start at just $49, and for a limited time, all holiday Flex Packs include a special Wil Myers Rookie of the Year cap.
In addition to substantial savings, Flex Packs offer fans the flexibility to select the games of their choice and earn rewards throughout the season. Flex Pack buyers will have game vouchers loaded into an online account which may be exchanged online for any game during the 2014 regular season, subject to availability. Vouchers can be redeemed beginning February 10, 2014, before the general on sale for single game tickets, and up until six hours before the desired game. This redemption window gives fans added convenience in choosing the games they wish to attend.
All fans who purchase a Flex Pack will receive a special Rays Card (one card per Flex Pack purchased). The card will serve as their ticket to the game (paper tickets will not be issued). Card holders will also be able to load funds to the card that can be used to purchase concessions and merchandise throughout Tropicana Field. In using the Rays Cards, Flex Pack purchasers will also earn Blue membership status with the team. Blue members will earn a 5 percent bonus on all funds loaded to their Rays Cards and will receive other rewards and special promotions throughout the 2014 season. More Flex Pack details are available at raysbaseball.com.
Rays Season Ticket Holders will continue to have access to the best seat locations and receive exclusive benefits including the opportunity to purchase postseason ticket packages. Season Ticket Holders also receive larger bonuses on funds loaded to their Rays Cards as part of their Gold member status, with select premium seat locations receiving Elite member status.
Reservations for 2014 ticket plans may be made by calling 888-FAN-RAYS, online at raysbaseball.com or by visiting the Rays Executive Offices at Tropicana Field open 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
