San Diego Comic-Con News


Don't forget: The hotel lottery for San Diego Comic Con opens on March 29 at 9:00 a.m. Pacific/noon Eastern time. Good luck to everyone...may you get the hotel you want, and may the system work flawlessly.

Also up this week: the second chance badge resale, which opens tomorrow, March 27, at 8:00 a.m. Pacific time. Here's the info Comic-Con released about it:

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.
