Save time by searching Best Available, which scans all sections fast – it’s quicker than searching sections one at a time.

Use only one browser window or risk losing your tickets! We bar multiple windows to stop unfair automated programs that shut you out. (Hint: you can use more than one computer…your laptop perhaps?)

Don’t refresh your browser every second or your computer will be blocked (another automated program prevention measure). Yes, you should refresh during the onsale, but no more than every 2 – 3 seconds.
