That's messed up.  I would report that pr*ck to management.

You are right, they should be kissing your *ss right now, not to mention every STH's *ss.

I am looking to upgrade as well.  My rep is Roberto who is very courteous and professional.

When he is not in I just call the ticket office and ask whoever picks up the phone to check inventory for me.  Never had an issue.

 

 

Roberto is my rep too and I agree, he's great

I walked away about 4 years ago and it was the best decision.  I had 2 good seats in section 109 on the 15 yard line.  Like others have mentioned the people around me were always changing, never the same fans and they were buying tickets for $40-$60 while I was paying full price $140 per ticket and the cost of the PSL $10,000 ($5000 per seat).  When you look at what people were paying last year in a bad season $10-$15 with a parking pass on stub hub it really was a no brainer.  I also now use that money take a family weekend to visit a different city and watch our Jets at an away game.  

I believe the vision Woody Johnson had with his own stadium in Manhattan would have been top notch and had Jets Home field advantage, but Silver and  Crooked politics got in the way.  Having to jump back in with the Giants at Met Life was a knee jerk reaction and unfortunately the stadium is really not fun or nice to watch a game with home field advantage.  Now I pick up a game ticket once in a while to take my kids to the game but prefer watching at home now.

Very grateful I wound up selling my PSL for "pennies on the dollar" 2 weeks ago instead of paying "dollars for pennies" on season tickets this year.

I'm an original season ticket holder from 1964, I paid for 2 PSL's and when I called my ticket agent from the Jets this year and asked if I did not renew my tickets for one year will I lose my tickets. he said yes!!! So I renewed my tickets for this year but am very frustrated with the direction and that I had to pay $7500.00 for each PSL!! I would love to try and recoup some of my PSL money and walk away for good. This is how you treat a season ticket holder for 53 years!!!

Has anyone had any success getting some of their monies back from the PSL?? Thanks

How did and where did you sell your PSL's? Thanks

Pslsource.com

Very painless and simple process. After I sold the tickets, I wasn't sure how smoothly the process would be working with the Jets. Per the PSLsource rep I worked with.. "I have been working directly with someone on the Jets very frequently." I received the payout about 2 weeks after I accepted the buyer's bid and about a week after the transfer was finalized with the Jets.

Obviously I took a substantial hit on selling the tickets, but I was already walking away from the PSL. I have the money, but have no interest buying a product (2017 season tickets) that has virtually no resale value.

Yes. PSLsource.com. 

I did not work with any of their reps until after I sold the PSL.

Honestly if you are trying to bail out of you PSL's at this point you just were either delusional when you bought them or are terrible at financial decisions.

PSL's were never and will never be an investment.

The odds of owning PSL's to a winning team are less than 38%

The odds of owning PSL's to a superbowl team are slim to none

The odds of feeling like you got a good value after 7 years was about 5% (if you thought otherwise shame on you)

I spent $30,000 (psl) on two seats and still pay $3,500 a year for tickets. I knew this cost in 2009 when we bought them and I knew it would be the cost for 1 win or 16 wins... if you thought anything else of the purchase or the JETS you were lying to yourself. 

I am happy to have some amazing seats, have had some great times and will have many more memories. It is a luxury purchase and I am glad to have the luxury.

Who said they were an investment? Was curious to see who was walking away this season. When I got the seats 5+ years ago I was not traveling overseas 10+ times a year for work and unable to make games. People's commitments change over the course of their lives. Glad you have the next 30 years of your life planned out for you. Not my fault for wanting anything but upper deck season tickets for the few years I have been in the area while my father has been able to go to games with me, and I paid the PSL premium for it. But when I can't make half the games the next 2-3 years, can't sell them for 50% less the face value, or even GIVE THEM AWAY, what is the purpose of owning season tickets? Not everyone has the luxury of being able to go for the next 30 years. I do not understand why some people on this forum do not get that.

The odds of YOU feeling good about your $30k purchase 7 years later are about 0%. I could buy a PSL and sit right next to you for 1/10th of what you paid. 

Enjoy the 2017 season. Go Jets!

What section are you 111A/115A?  If so curious of the view from there in case I want to cut my price of tickets per year in half down the road when kid gets a little older, and can brave the elements.
