Although I hope there is an option to opt-out of the rebate.

 

I would happily pay full price for my STs next year even if I was allowed into 5 games this season.

Or might be better tax-wise for Hearts to pay say £75 less to Hearts for the ST and then donate the £75 to the FoH

I agree, ultimately the fans make the club and whilst there are many things in life I like to save cash on... Hearts aren't one of them.

That's a great idea.  I know a lot on here are saying they don't care about a refund or a discount on next season's ticket.  

 

Your suggestion would keep things simple for the club (i.e. not having to put in place alternative arrangements for fans who wish to waive their refund / credit) and would, as you say, be a more tax efficient way of foregoing the refund.  The fans would also see their FOH points boosted, what's not to like about that?

Sounds good in theory and I'd willingly do that apart from the fact that I've already bought my ST.

In practice, it'll make little difference in the short/medium term because the club will have losses to c/f.  Also HMRC might see the £75 FoH contribution as Hearts' income paid via a 3rd party instead of directly.

myself and the wife popped in this afternoon and renewed ours after having major issues trying to renew online. many thanks to Lynsey who tried to resolve our issues and it was nice to thank her in person this afternoon. quite liked the look of the Hearts facemasks the staff were wearing seemingly you can buy them online.

 

FTH.

That's what I ordered,received something bordering on pink with a wee badge on the side with a white and orange trim.

Yuck 🤷

The facemasks in the shop and online for sale are totally different to the ones the staff had on. The staff facemasks had the Hearts badge on both sides and were black and maroon looked better that the ones for sale.

A few folk I've spoken to haven't got theirs  yet but are intending  to . Me and my daughters haven't got round to renewing yet either . I reckon we'll be well over 10k before our season starts . Absolutely incredible backing considering our predicament as it stands .

Agree.

 

Heading for around 12,000.

 

Other things are going to happen too. Including fan ownership that will help.

Don’t think we’ll hit that.  10k max.

It’s scandalous for Hearts. Does nobody at the club look at stuff like that and think ‘that’s unacceptable, charging that delivery cost for a piece of cloth’.

Exactly.  This is an item that weighs a few ounces and fits into an A5 padded envelope.

 

One of the big UK manufacturers is offering masks with 1st class Royal Mail delivery at 1.99.

Depends on their business model I suppose. Clearly not competing with Amazon or other online operators.

Think that's Hearts fault by sending them out Special Delivery instead of first class.

Aye, hearts obviously won’t get the rates that amazon get but sending it special delivery is overkill imo. Not too big a deal I suppose but I’d have thought someone at the club would’ve noticed the mad postal cost.

Certainly a disincentive for people to order small cost Items online. Being supporters a lot will likely buy over £60 at a time to get free delivery so maybe not so daft. 😎

Regarding renewing I'm aware there's a booking fee when renewing on line but does anyone know if there's an additional charge for paying with credit card ?

Is it not due to resume when the season starts, if games are without fans?

No idea. 

 

There was an email sent out saying the free thing was at an end as they gad to prepare for the new season (whatever that might entail) but nothing since.

 

I suppose itll all depend on what happens over the next week or so.

The extension for renewals will be affecting sales aswell. There needs to be a firm date put in place for people to decide either way.  4 people in my family looking to buy tickets, hopefully close to ones we already have, but only options available are mostly in front couple of rows.

I'm currently on both sides of this atm 😂

 

I need to get around to renewing but also minded to get a season ticket for a wee one at the same, which isn't possible for my current seat.

Agreed.

We are all moving seats this season .

Those who are keeping their seats will have done so.
