Tickets being posted on Facebook?

#1 Post by farhan232323 » Thu Jul 11, 2013 2:38 pm

Am I the only one slightly annoyed when ticket codes are posted onto Facebook by a certain group, to about a quarter of a million people? The worst part is the fact that they are obv copied from here, its gotten to the point where I have to check this site on the hour to make sure I don't miss out on tickets.

I guess my rant is over.

About 60% of my tickets are from the good folks on this site - to which I'd like to take the opportunity to say "THANK YOU!". Like you farhan232323 I'm rarely quick enough to snap up tix for the locations I want.

You can subscribe to the Free Films forum so you receive an alert in your email when a new code is posted. That way you don't have to check on the hour ;)

If you mean 10 ways, then they actually harvest their codes from MSE. However, MSE usually get the majority of codes from here.

If you have an iPhone, you can also set aybg@fmuk as a VIP so it will give you a push notification when the message comes! :)

By that same argument this site can be annoying for those that receive the specific email from SFF as the tickets are snapped up quickly.

As a matter of interest, just how many emails do you receive from SFF on a regular basis? From my experience, SFF only send emails out for hard to 'sell' films.
