I was rather confused when my second season ticket came through in the post this morning and immediate thoughts were that it was a mistake and I wondered who I could flog it to. 

Anyway, I won't be going on to the Ticketdisaster website if I need any extra tickets, not after the Pro12 final debacle, being charged £3.25 to use my own paper and ink to print off tickets at home; I'll still be using the ticket office.

Thats my thought.  If you need to pre-load the card tehn come the last game of the season you'll be forcing down beers to ensure no money is left on the card.  Or, you'd just continue using cash to avoid running out or over loading the card.
Agree to a point but you never load that much. The whole reloadable concept is widely use now at concerts, festivals where you don't want to carry a wallet/purse. Just have a wristband or similar. It also ties the wearer to the club so it's guaranteeing the sales Smile

There's no reason why you can't keep the card from one season to another !!!!

If you don't renew for next season, then the card gets disabled to stop you from using it.

This is an idea. i'm NOT saying that this is what will happen.

Got mine this morning. Not a chip, just a barcode printed on the back. Last years had a barcode so no different.

Personally wouldn’t load it up for drinks etc, I’d use contactless card/Apple Pay if tills had the tech. Now if it was 10p a pint cheaper for ST holders I might consider it.

Come on scarlets get a grip . How about st holders discount at the bar . All the technology is there . When we were in saracens last season they had a great scheme in place . Arm band with chip on , scan your pre loaded arm band in all outlets .
as all the coaches left stradey , bound for nottingham , a sign on the m4 at hendy said , please can the last person close the door behind them , memories

They won't be doing away with stewards, some of the people on the turnstiles perhaps. There will still have to be someone available for any problems with cards, plus no stewards would equal no match.

Website says it's recommended you activate the card before the Bath game to get all the benefits of being a season ticket holder. What is this activation all about?

Scarlets said on Facebook that you don't HAVE to activate the card.

They will still get you into the ground without activation.

But you won't get the additional benefits. 

And we don't know what these benefits will be.

I think it said visit a website and enter the number on the back of the card (details on the Scarlets website)

Personally I'm glad the Scarlets are introducing new technology with these Season ticket cards.

Every match I been to this season I have been so surprised of the lack of checks on these ticket cards. With a quick show of the card at the turnstiles they let you in no questions asked and don't check the cards for authenticity or validation. I expected at the very least to be questioned or have the card physically checked by the ticket staff or stewards. 

I joked with a friend about the situation and said that anybody could just make one of these cards at home and most probably get in and watch the game scot free, particularly the enclosure. 

I am very glad that this new system is been put into place and the Scarlets are using up to date tech and facilities for season tickets. By using this new system more accurate attendances can be calculated including the amount ST holders attending.
