I was looking at the cost of tickets to the upcoming Cricket World Cup group games at Manuka. $20 general admission seemed to be not too excessive. Standard mail delivery $7 – registered $10. Sounds a bit high but hey-ho. Or, I can print them at home – awesome, save on delivery costs. Wait a moment – if I choose to print them at home it’s going to cost me $6.
$6 for me to print them? Plus my paper and my ink. Aren’t I doing part of their job for them by saving them the effort of printing, packaging and posting?
Earlier this year AFL fans got upset about a $2.50 “service/delivery fee” for the same option. See – http://www.heraldsun.com.au/news/victoria/footy-fans-fuming-over-mcg-afl-match-ticket-delivery-fee-online/story-fni0fit3-1226837590261?nk=7b79ff8992ea1149de5801a794f30407/
Sounds like a rort to me. Boycott anyone?
