Yes.

If you bought an extra ticket, sell it for cost.  You shouldnt be making a market in this.
thank you for telling me what to do.

there should be shuls that bought chunks and have still to sell, shouldn't need to pay a premium on them. Ask around.

Then how come we didn't hear yet from any shul stating that? It's not like they are trying to keep it a secret from their members.

Looking for transportation options to Metlife. My only priority is to be able to exit the parking lot after the siyum in the shortest time possible. Thought Uber, but a lot of discouraging stuff written online about that. Thought train, but I don't know if the special stadium service will be running for the siyum, and a lot written about packed platform.

Last time there was special service.  The siyum ran late a and they kept announcing that the last train will leave at 11:00

They make you purchase a round trip ticket on the way going so that there shouldn't be a mad rush to purchase tickets when everyone wants to leave the same time.

I'm gonna assume that special service train will be running all day by the time the siyum hashas comes around. Usually they run special service for games and events, but the mall will be open then which I assume means they will run a train to that platform all day, everyday.

Eta: according to this NJ Ttansit is a typical governmental mess and may not have service up and running in time.

https://www.nj.com/traffic/2019/07/american-dream-had-to-reveal-its-transit-plan-problem-is-it-doesnt-have-one-yet.html
But will have buses to secaucus.
And maybe this too "A special express bus from Port Authority: NJ Transit announced they will run a special direct express bus from Port Authority to American Dream. The #355 expresses from Port Authority to the mall, and vice versa, with no other stops. It begins October 25. This is to take New York City shoppers back and forth to American Dream. It will depart every 30 minutes. NJ Transit wants to charge customers a new premium fare for this "frequent, express bus service." NJ Transit is not yet revealing what they want this premium fare to be."

Yes.
Last time i received a free ticket from a casual acquaintance because he had an extra. I believe most people in my community would definitely not offer their extra tickets at more than cost, even if there is a demand for it.
I'm not who you think I am.

cuz no one has a ticket in hand yet.

If things are being sold above face, shouldn't it be in the goods for sale board?

You can do what ever you like, just because there are those that woke up now too bad on them, you snooze you loose.
 
  Yes theoretically speaking don't know if they want people buying and flipping at a profit. Vs by Agudah it's all going towards AIOA (Agudah Israel of America).
       They very well knew that many people will be buying to resell and hard to prevent such acts, many bought for family and siblings and ....
      Definitely some money to made here should one have bought hundreds of tickets for resale.
   Good luck on all you 300 ticket sales!

Yes someone already created such a thread, but in the context of the thread people went and offered their tickets for sale.

Why not? Do you find it gross that the Aguda makes this into a market?

Considering they are paying 10s of thousands to rent and staff metlife, I don't think they are raking it in.

They're definitely making money. Regardless, there's nothing wrong with buying and reselling for profit.

Anyone know that their shul bought for their members?
The idea of the group code was to avoid a shul having to layout the money.

They seem to be making more tickets available. Two weeks ago, all the $100 tickets were sold out. Now there are $100 tickets available. https://app.tixter.io/e/nR?
