Never thought I'd say this but I just bought a PSL...

Today I bought 2 PSLs in the LLEZ, for $250 each (6.25 cents on the dollar from original face value).

The original owner must have been really disgusted and highly motivated to unload them.

I am going from Row 8 in the UD to 17 rows off the field for an additional $17 per ticket.

Someone please tell me this is a good move.  Everyone in my inner circle thinks I'm out of my mind.

It's been a love/hate relationship with the Jets for me recently but I felt this deal was too good to pass up.

I've been going to Jet games for the last 48 years.

Continuing the commitment to the Jets is somehow like a bad habit that I can't seem to shake.

 

 

 

If you don't mind the view from the EZ, I will say you came up ahead. Upper Deck view is terrible no matter how you slice it. You are never in the game as the action is too far away from you. When you are in LL, you are in the action non stop. Endzone experience might be slightly different but still lower level will always be much better than upper deck. $17 per ticket isn't really a deal breaker if you ask me. $340 more per year for 2 tickets and you will be able to sell them for much higher than an upper deck seat when you can't go. 

Congrats on your purchase FR.

Congrats!  For that price, I love the move.  That is a crazy deal.

You obviously like going to the games.  I know you can do better financially most of the time on the secondary market.  But if you like the seats you bought, being an STH makes the default action of going to games trivially simple.  Also, you may get a little easier in and out experience from the LL.  I know many folks complain about this at MetLife.  I am in the LSL, and it's really easy to get in and out.

If you're unhappy, flip them for $300 each and you've made yourself a nice little profit :)

Congrats! I think it was a good move and may do the same if the prices are reasonable in the Feb-Mar time frame. Buy low/Sell high.

A one-time cost of $500 is nothing (particularly over time); if $500 was tremendously meaningful you wouldn't be paying for season tickets in the first place. You'd be watching games on your TV and gushing over the money you saved.

If you love going to the games, and it sounds like you do (despite the on-field product lol) then make the experience as enjoyable as you can. Don't worry about what others say. If it's worth it to you then it's worth it. 

Enjoy your new seats!

Stupid question, but serious. Can you buy a PSL and NOT but tickets....as in a "futures" investment? 

 

If the prices are really low right now, can I buy a PSL(s) but not buy STs until I retire and return to an area closer to the Big AC in the swamp? I'm still in FLORIDA now, but dont plan on being in this sweltering land of sh*tbags forever.

Nothing to lose except $500 which is what you could probably get back re-selling in a year from now if you are unhappy.

Excellent move, congratulations.

You are getting in at the bottom of the market as they say, you are set up for some nice years of suffering and bonding with your new section-mates to then be rewarded when we host the Cleveland Browns in the 2025 AFC Championship Game.

That soon? Lol.

The "being in the game" part is what put me over the top.

I had tickets to Rutgers B Ball at the Rac years ago with the same type of location, caddy corner behind the hoop, 3 rows off the floor.

Felt like I was "in the game" and it was pretty cool.

I'm going for the same experience here.

Thank you for your input and now let's get that QB from Clemson!

This was also in my thought process...

My seats in the UD were good but it was a sprint to the finish line to get out of there after games to beat the traffic.

Great move.  Would've definitely gone the PSL route if not for the fact I was moving.

You stand a very good chance of striking investment gold with your strategy.

Good times ahead for the team, it'll take a few years but Belichick and Brady will retire and the AFC East will be wide open.

no.  Once you sign the PSL contract with the Jets (yes... even PSL secondary market private sales and transfers require the purchaser to sign a contract with the Jets committing to purchasing all regular season and pre season games).  If you fail to purchase your season tickets, the Jets have the right to revoke the PSLs with no refund.

The seats I have now come from a mixture of my original purchase through the Jets plus a secondary market purchase (heavily discounted).  I put it all together and moved to a new section a few years ago.

No. You are obligated to buy the season tickets or you will lose your PSL.
