Well, it is last minute and you are sure they are legit so I'd say it's a fair price.

Money card wrote:I called the signature concierge to get LA Dodgers at New York Mets tickets for July 20th, which is a Friday night. They want 115.00 per ticket plus 25.00 shipping and handling. I told the account mgr that's to much. He understood

Section 424, he told me they go through the box office, ticketmaster and 2nd party to get tickets. but they don't go through third party like ticket zoom, he said they may be selling legitimate tickets, but they don't want to take a chance in case they don't have real tickets.

everybody agree that 115.00 per ticket for the 400's plus a 25.00 shipping and handling is expensive?


yankee fan here so to me those tickets are dirt cheap. 115.00 will get you nose bleed seats in yankee's stadium.

Just came back from a long weekend getaway from Newport Rhode Island. Whenever I'm there I always make sure I dine at The Mooring at least once with outdoor seating overlooking the harbor. I enjoy the restaurant but it can get a bit crowded especially during the 4th of July week visit. Called concierge and made reservations for a table that has less foot traffic, with harbor view and fireworks view. The restaurant was booked for the entire week.

- Got a 7:00pm reservation with outdoor seating
- Got a table with a perfect view of yachts and sailboats
- Tables in front, back, left and right had a reserved sign with my name on it
- Was moved to a different table at 8:45pm for an ideal view of the fireworks that started at 9pm

Yes, Amex Concierge. This was a huge surprise to me since I thought they would have arranged a table away from the kitchen, restrooms and busy walkways. For something like this to happen I'm sure the restaurant has a huge hand in it. The Mooring, from my experiences have always been extremely accommodating.

How come I've never heard of this place? Narragansette and Newport are places I frequent when it comes to vacations.

I always go to the Coast Guard House on Narragansette beach. I love the juxtaposition of people in hundred thousand dollar cars wearing bespoke suits on the first floor who talk about golfing and yachting and 21 year olds in gym shorts and t shirts on the second floor who can barely talk because they are getting hammered off of cheap drinks.

Main Card: Amex Platinum
For gas: Penfed Platinum Cash Rewards
For travel & dining: Chase Sapphire Preferred

I wonder that too. I also wondered how it would have played out of I got a less seasoned rep or a rep that was having a bad day. The cards played out in this one. A good Amex/Circles concierge rep along with an accommodating restaurant and restaurant staff.
