so if you were a season ticket holder last year you get the 25% off on the playoff guarantee plus an additional 10% if we renew before January 23rd? so we would get 35% off?
also, we get one extra ticket for each home game?
I so hope everyone takes em up on it.
Looks like it viewtopic.php?f=5&t=33695
Here is how Ticat senior account executive Joe Gallagher explained the 25% discount for the 2008 Ticat season ticket holders in his post on ticats.ca a month or so ago (before the recent announcement of an additional 10% discount for early season ticket renewals by Jan 23/09):

is it really a 25% discount? ted michaels was figuring it out on the fifth quarter two weeks ago when a fan asked him about it. If its after tax discount then doesnt the discount shrink down to about 12%? and if you paid for the playoff ticket and that was added to your reciept its about another 10% isnt it? which means the discount is only about 2 or 3%? maybe someone can check this as it was ted michaels who I first heard it from in response to a caller on his show.
Far as raising single games go it all depends how much they raise them
Here is an example using a $700 Platinum Level seat holder that purchased the playoff ticket (an additional $70 on top of the $700 season ticket cost) thus is eligible for the 25% credit for their 2009 season ticket. The 25% is based on the net cost of the $700 seat.
$608.70 is the net cost of the $700 ticket.
25% of the $608.70 is $152.18
Add the $152.18 to the $70 paid for the playoff ticket.
The customer would see a credit of $222.18 to their account for 2009 and would be responsible for paying the $477.82 balance for their 2009 Platinum Level season ticket.

Using Joe's calculation of the 2009 Platinum Level season ticket cost including the 25% discount to 2008 season ticket holders for the team not making the 2008 playoffs, the adjusted early bird ticket price for 2009 Platinum Level season tickets would seem to calculate as follows:
$630.00 if season ticket paid in full by Jan 23/09
$547.83 is the net cost of the $630 ticket.
25% of the $547.83 is $136.96
Add the $136.96 to the $70 paid for the playoff ticket.
The customer would see a credit of $206.96 to their account for 2009 and would be responsible for paying the $423.04 balance for their 2009 Platinum Level season ticket.
This formula can be applied to 2009 season ticket renewals by 2008 season ticket holders at any price point by plugging in the relevant numbers.
