Okay, so I got my season ticket renewal notice already. It had no deadline for submission, so I sent them an email asking when it was. I got a call telling me that the notice I got has the wrong prices on it, that I should ignore it, and new ones are being sent out. Nice job, MSU!

Multiple "premium" games?

No, they just sent out a flyer with prices that were wrong. Apparently somebody just took a flyer from the tickets for another sport, changed it to hockey, but forgot to change the prices.

Apparently, they use the same proof reader (none) that the Freep uses.

I quickly sent in my $155.00. I'm guessing I'm going to have to pay a tad more.

On a brighter note, I did get a thank you call for your support of the Mavericks from Chandler Madry.

If someone took them to court on the $155, they might just win. A contract is created when an offer is made and accepted. Their screwup could cost them some money if someone wanted to go through the trouble of litigation.

Your error is in analyzing the "offer and acceptance" part.

The offer wasn't made when they sent out the flyer. The offer is made when the customer offers to buy the product (in this case the tickets) for $155. Until the seller accepts that offer, there is no contract. Their flyer is just an advertisement, or a solicitation to make offers if you will.

It gets a little tricky if you were to pay them online with a credit card and the transaction goes through. However, they probably have somewhere in their "terms" the right to void these electronic transactions.

One of my saddest days in law school was when we read cases of newspaper ad misprints, and how a store wasn't bound by them.

But boy, $155 season tickets would have been sweet!

B)Why are you upset about this?I'm not upset. It's just a little inept that no one proofread the flyers before they were sent out.

I'll certainly take your word for it. I didn't know that offer/acceptance had to be initiated by the purchaser.

Sadly, that price is about what you pay for UAH season tickets. :(

Someone posted on the St. Cloud thread that the Huskies will be in Kato October 7-8. I'm assuming we'll take a trip to the new Omaha arena to play them in October as a return for their trip up last year, and we'll have a weekend series with the Gophers since we're not in the Cup. That would leave us with one more non-conference opportunity if we want to schedule it. Any rumors?
