Who's got their e-mail saying their tickets are on the way? Who's got their tickets?

It's getting close. Santa (FedEx guy) will soon be on the way.

For more of a tease, here are the dates that MY tickets came the last 4 years.

'04 - July 16
'05 - July 18
'06 - July 31
'07 - July 12

Could be only a week away!!!!!:splits:

For me "Christmas in July" would have been finding out that Pac Man Jones was harrassing a little old lady who turned out to be a martial arts grand master and she gave him a tornado kick to the face. The comish would have learned of his badgering the elderly and made his ban life long.

Why worry about Adam (don't call me Pacman) Jones? We don't play them in the regular season and they are not in our division. Lets just pick on Vince and Peyton.:thinking:

I got this today

Thank you for your inquiry. The 2008 Houston Texans Season Tickets will be sent via FedEx to most season ticket holders beginning July 10th. All accounts that had a physical address and an email address will receive an email shortly before delivery with your FedEx tracking number for your season ticket package. If your address on file with the Texans is a post office box, then you can expect to see your season ticket package by USPS priority mail around the same time. Most people should expect to receive their tickets in the next 7-10 business days.

I also called them and found out it is too late to change the address. Last year my tickets got delivered to the warehouse in back of our offices and I had to hunt them down to get my tickets. So this year I called the Texans and asked what did I need to do to change the delivery address. They said to fax in a change of delivery address, so I did. But then yesterday they told me they still had the same delivery address as last year. Guess I will have to go hunting for my tickets again this year.

The flag is the best gift evaaar.

Instead of sitting in your desk or being used by a few random corporate types, a flag symbolizes that not only are you a Texan fan, but you are dang proud to be a Texan fan.

I like taking mine into games and waving it at the beginning of games and after TDs.

A few guys in Iraq emailed me to see if I could get some shipped over there, and some awesome Texan fans I knew had some extras that we sent.

/yet an another illustration why I adore Texan fans and why they are the bestest.

To better understand the rationale for the gifts over the years, visit the supplier's website and read the Texans case study. The Texans were looking for a rigid mailer/gift combo that would prevent tickets from getting damaged - and I'm sure it had to be lightweight. I guess you can only get so creative with those requirements. I'd settle for tickets between two slices of 1/4 inch cardboard with the cost savings going toward cheaper beer or parking.

In considering the number of ticket holders the gifts probably don't cost more than $5 each wholesale. I look at them as a token of appreciation. Even the flag was attractive, but in feeling the fabric, it couldn't have cost in the two figures. A gift card probably wouldn't go too far in the Texans store.

Ahhhh, nut the flag was long desired by fans ever since the 2002 short live rogue flag maker - they're unique and can't get them any where else.

Received mine yesterday and put it on the kitchen table. Well I got sidetracked and forgot they were there until about 10 minutes before I left for work...
Well after already knowing what the gift was, I was like, WTH is this thing...looks like a deflated ball flattend out and opened up..Well I tell my wife, that this year, she can do whatever she wants with it, as I have no use for it...she looks at me and says, "thanks alot" and puts it back on the table after a quick once over...
I guess what they say is true, it is the thought that counts....

And if the Texans wants something to protect the tickets..I mean the tickets are paper and so is the parking....Other than a bubble envelope, what else to ya need...Oh well, tickets in hand, and I am a happy camper !!

FedEx guy was nice enough to put mine behind my storm door so noone could see them. When I drove up I thought, DAMN, still no tickets, until I opened the door. NICE feeling, and definitely felt like Christmas in July!!

BTW: I like the gift. No complaints on my part.

Wish MORE people would be a little more appreciative of something that is meant to be a generous presentation for our beloved tickets.
Gosh people, what would the conversation be if we were delivered USPS a
8 1/2 x 11 white standard envelope shoved into our mailboxes as Dallas does every year!

Thanks Texans, It will keep my tickets safe and sound!:texflag:

That wouldn't bother me any...as I said, it is the thought that counts. Not sure how many season ticket holders will use it though....

While I certainly appreciate any 'free' gift, I'm just not sure what to do with it.

What is the gift? I read the last two pages but unless I missed something, no one has actually described said gift.

I wish I could explain it..Well it has the look and feel of a football. It's kind of like a carry bag that one of the older binders we received would fit into. It has a pen holder in it with a pocket for a cell or calculator, and the logo on it.

I am sure someone can describe it better than I did..but thats nuts and bolts of it.

I am not a big fan of extra value (built in by marketing) that I, the customer, do not see the value in - such as these type of gifts regardless of the entity doling them out. I also have only liked the flag as the gift provided, and have used the gifts I did not like as season ticket holders. In fact, if I got a flag every year I would be very happy. Which brings us to this year's gift.

When I first got it I gave it a Vulcan/Belushi stare, then touched it and soon got a whiff of the chemicals. First thought was - nice try, but it is a season ticket holder in 2008. My second thought was a stroke of brilliance on my part or an amazing disply of Marketing brilliance by the Texans - when I remembered I have been wanting a sleeve for my notebook that is very different, as in simple and unique. I then looked at my computer and then looked at the gift. I believe I then fell asleep and over coffee the following morning remembered that I had a decision to make - get busy livin' or get busy dyin'. Well I chose to live and found the ultimate bad arse Texans' Notebook Sleeve. Not sure if that is what it is, but all I know is that I am using it for something that I will proudly strut around with.

Great job Texans, but I honestly do not think others will like it as much as me. :texflag:

Well that doesn't sound too bad to me! Like you I love the flag (my dad let me have it), but I am sure I would be able to find a use for that satchel. I have Texans stuff all over the place and I always find a way to show it off.

Just a few weeks ago I was in my parents room and I found dads leather Texans binder up there on a dresser covered in dust. I have half a mind to sneak it out of there, I doubt he would notice.

Excellent idea for a notebok sleeve, but I have a 17" screen and I don't think my laptop would fit..Hey, good call on using it that way !!

I looks like a bank bag or something a document messenger would use.

I guess I'll just use it to protect my Texans leather notebook from a previous season....even though it'll be storage for both of them.

I'm not knocking any of the gifts, but the only one I have really used is the flag.

I use the notebook folder things all the time when I go to meetings. It often starts up a conversation about the Texans.
