You only get points for ticket purchases, buying a shirt wouldn't help.

Mine are now bought so I’m glad I bought the cheap flights within 10 minutes of the draw (though I’d have been a mug if I’d done that for the Cypriot club, I didn’t realise they played behind closed doors :shock: )

For info we seem to have ours before number 700, which seem to be sequential. Don’t take this as gospel, but it implies to me there are plenty left.

Yeah, on the day of the draw I could get there for £40, but couldn't get back for less than £100

Hotels are still reasonably ok as there is a lot of choice around the town but I'd rather go up and down in a day I think.

Yes. Getting back was pricey. Worked out cheaper to train up and fly back...

Sympathies to those who rip off Britain affects.

When we got the draw I got 2 flights for £100. By the time I put my credit card in, I was told they had gone up to £260, so paid it. Checked now, they are close to £1000 (return) for two of us. I have no doubt that FlyMayBe are abusing their monopoly over this route (I fly with them about 40 times a year I am sad to say. A tip - if you want your blood pressure to stay low, do not check the fees for things like name changes (if someone decides they can’t get a match ticket and choose to sell their flight to a mate).

I have never understood how these companies haven’t had legislation to stop this dynamic pricing practice. The ECJ have been asked to look at it in the past but have never done anything.

We were ready to move quickly and were going to book flights but one of our group said he didn't want to go if we were flying up. As it happened, he's not going, but we are going by car, leaving Wednesday and coming back Friday.

It is only 60 miles further than Gillingham that we did and lost on a Tuesday night not many years ago.

But this will be a tad more exciting.

If you see something in the sale, do you insist on giving the retailer full price? Just seeing how deep your commitment to this principle is? Do you insist on paying more for holidays off season to even things up? Insist on paying full price for drinks during happy hour?

Got 2 of ours today. Don’t hold out much hope for the other two children of mine with 5500 points.

Driving to Glasgow on Wed then the train up on Thursday morning and back to Glasgow on the Fri. Then a weekend near the Lakes which has been booked for ages. All worked out OK. Train part off peak return only £60. Night out in Glasgow as a bonus.

They have tweeted to say they have stopped sales.

To count the tickets....

I kid you not. Technology fully implemented at Turf Moor!

Seems very sinister that posts are being deleted on here.The post where someone mentioned a freedom of information request and my response that it only applied It only applied to certain government departments have been deleted.
How can the club take action against supporters whi have transferred their ticket in good faitb,may have not been sble to go at the last minute,when it is fairly obvious that people eill travel with the supporters when they clearly havr not got the required loyalty points.
Also those who have got a ticket through contacts in the ticket office.

Didnt see them all,in what way shocking.
The post I saw was somebody saying they were going to do a freedom of information request to ask who the tickets had been allocated to,
I replied saying FOI did not apply to football clubs only certain government departments.
Yet both those posts got deleted.
Never mind freedom of information what happened to freedom of speech,
