FAQ’s

Can the same ticket code be used more than once?

No. Each code is unique and can be redeemed only once. If you have more than 10 great customers to invite, additional tickets can be purchased for only $3 each. Contact us to order additional tickets.

Can I send more than 1 ticket to a customer?

Yes! If you want to invite a customer with their spouse or a friend, simply include more than one ticket link in your email to them.

How are tickets redeemed?

Customers will click on the link, enter their email address, and they’re ready to shop!  We’ve made the process easy for them – redeemed tickets can be displayed on their smart phone at the gate or printed in advance. Be sure not to send the same code to more than one person; each link can only be redeemed once.

Do tickets need to be printed for entry?

No! Your customers can simply show their ticket on their smart phone at the door. If they choose to print their tickets we’ll accept that too.

How can I give away all of my tickets?
