Default Talk about a shipping overcharges...

I am prefacing this post by saying I knew the shipping price when I ordered and agreed to pay it. Just found it amusing given all the shipping price complaint threads I read here.

Pre-ordered my autograph tickets for Tri-Star's Houston show (Peterson and Foster) and got charged $5 for shipping. As expected they came today in a PWE with a $.44 stamp. Even worse? If you buy them online and option to pick them up at the show, they still charge you the $5. Obvious lesson is buy them at the show and save the extra $5.

I also just noticed something odd. Both the autograph and inscription tickets are numbered. The weird part is that my Peterson auto ticket is number 8 and the inscription ticket is number 14. So, that makes it seem like someone purchased inscription tickets with no autograph... Odd

Now where are those DSR ratings on the tri-star site?

What about paying for multiple inscriptions?

hahah good point fish, thats what I was about to post

to op, that does suck that they hit you up for $5 and take .50 cents to ship it...maybe shoot them an email or a phone call to complain, maybe they'll hook you up!

Doesn't it just cost $10 flat at the show as opposed to the $8 plus 5 to ship? I saw that earlier too and was going to buy online until I saw the shipping. I'd imagine you won't have to wait in line then.

I wanted to make sure I was early in the autograph lines, so I was going to ordering the autograph and authentication tickets. I was going to get hit with $5 no matter what else I added, so getting the admit ticket really didn't cost anymore.
