    Well, our chief went to the single store in this area that was supposed to have the free tickets and they knew nothing about it. He even had to go on the internet to show them that they were supposed to have them, but they were still clueless about it. Needless to say, it doesn't look like anyone in this area will be getting the free tickets.....

    If you went to a store on the list that didn't know anything about it, please email the store location to ladder49tickets@firehouse.com and we'll take care of that.

    Thumbs down No one here....

    Or in this state, apparently. I was VERY disappointed. I know that Nextel has a very limited market area in Iowa, but I tried under every city in the area that I know Nextel covers. Des Moines, Cedar Rapids, Iowa City, none of them showed tickets. This was almost false advertising. They weren't available here, so it really wasn't "Nationwide." If a giveaway like this isn't truely nationwide, don't say it is. I am sure there are other states like Iowa that didn't have any available. I was saddened, and embarassed as I told my partner, and he wanted a ticket, too. If I knew we were excluded, I wouldn't have shown him the info on Firehouse.

    No Nextel stores anywhere in the U.P. of Michigan. I stopped by a store on my way to the state's firemen festival, but they didn't have them.

    Folks

    The tickets are/were available at over 200 Nextel owned stores nationwide. Keep in mind alot of Nextel stores are resellers, which don't have the promotion for the most part. It would be impossible for every store to have tickets..otherwise each would only have a handful. Tens of thousands of firefighters nationwide are receiving free tickets. If there was a way for every Firehouse.com visitor (a half million a month) to get a free ticket, we would have found a way. But ya have to be a little realistic that that would be impossible. There were several thousand tickets available online for those with no store near them (via the zip code search) but they were gone within a matter of hours.

    Thanks

    I did the zip code search too. Guess if you are in the Baton Rouge area you are not getting one either. Oh well, I guess I'll just have to save my pennies. See you opening weekend.
