Your NOT making 13%? I have a great opportunity for you then. Its not a pyramid scheme, but I was recruited to sell these cards, and now im recruiting you. And if you think this is a quick rich scheme, well Yes! You will get rich quick. We all will!

I don't see what the big deal is. I think they would be dumb for not asking for payment now.

I'm just really glad to see they're not laying employees off like other clubs are.

I just checked Money Market Accounts and Savings Accounts APY for Houston and the highest I found was 1%.

If you got creative with investing, sure, its easy to earn greater than 1%. But not with 0% risk. 1% seems to be pretty reasonable considering the current rates
Not to mention you pay now and if there's no season you get your money back plus that 1%.... SIX months from now, not a year! Good luck finding a 6 month CD with that rate.

What may to be lost here is that, the way the economy is going, in 6 months your money will be worth less. Some would rather have that money now to be able to spend their money on things they want/need now at probably a better return on that cash purchase.

I think if people have to worry about how much intrest they are going to get in return if there is a lock out, they might not want to be investing in football at all! No one is making anyone invest in football it's a luxury!

If you didn't pay for your tickets as a normally year, would you have the money set aside to pay for all of it at once, once the lockout is over. I don't think so.

Haha most likely higher!

I still just don't really see the big deal of paying for your tickets in advance, as in now, likely when you normally would. Has anyone tried to collect money from people for an event? It's hell when you wait right before the even starts.

Sure there's the risk that a season may not occur, but quite frankly I find that extremely unlikely. Even if that were to happen (worst case scenario), you would get your money back or at least pro rata on the number games played/lost. No season? Boom I get my money back... sucks but at least I'm not out anything.

Then add on the talk about the Texans actually paying you 1% of the price as interest!!?? I think that's pretty cool of them to do. I was meerily commenting on the fact that you pay them in May/June and there's no season, you get paid back 6 months later. That's 1% for 6 months... not a whole year. Could you invest that money in something else and make more? Sure possibly. With today's market you also run the risk of losing some of your initial investment and then you'd be stuck having to come up with extra money right before the season starts to pay for your season tickets... which at that point you might just say 'eff it'.

Is $10 back six months down the road going help me? Not really. I think its somewhat of a nice gesture when they could just say, "sorry OMT, no season here's your money back."

I just find it kind of funny people getting upset not only that they're being asked to pay for their season tickets but that they only get an extra 1% refund in the unlikely event no season occurs.

I admire Nitro's stance on this. If more fans were like him this organization would be in much better shape.

You can try Texas Citizens Bank or Founders Bank here in Houston. They have rewards checking accounts at about 2-2.5%. (used to be 5%, but alas...) Only catch is you have to use the debit card x number of times a month and have direct deposit (basically, they want you to use it like a normal checking account). For Founders, it's 10x a month and for Citizens it is 12x a month I believe.

But ya...point me in the direction of the 13% checking accounts plz.

Now you guys need to stop with the "telephone pole game" everchanging messages. I never said I had a 13% checking account. Enough please. I said my money makes 13% where its at. I was trying to make a statement but to my surprise, nobody can focus on the message behind it. Some of you guys just made up stuff and started running with the savings accounts and whatnot. If y'all want to make fun, that's fine with me... but I definitely wish I had said nothing... that really was too personal information for me to divulge on my part. In my mind and post, I was talking to one person (who I happen to know is a very financial person) but sometimes I forget this is an open forum... oh well. It happens...

I just got off the phone with the Texans ticket office and they said that the lockout has not impacted their projected sales.... Apparently everyone with Platinum lot passes and lower Bull pen tickets have renewed their season tickets.... :-(

I wish more Platinum lot people would get upset about the lockout!

It is obvious that the owners' own self-induced business insecurity led to policies that were meant to purposely generate insecurity on their loyal season ticket holders..........something that in many other contexts would be referred to as out and out "blackmail."
