Abby: Wife wants ticket payment sooner

0 Comments | Leave a Comment

Dear Abby: When purchasing concert tickets online for others, when should you expect reimbursement? I say the charge hits your credit card immediately, and so should the payment you’ve advanced for that person. My husband thinks it should be when the tickets are mailed to you — which can take two to four weeks — and you either bring the tickets to your friends or they pick them up.

What do you think? — Cautious Friend in Louisiana

Dear Cautious Friend: Your mistake was in not discussing payment arrangements before you bought the tickets. Unless immediate repayment was agreed upon at the time they were ordered, I agree with your husband that reimbursement when the tickets are delivered is appropriate.
