An Olympic Overspend...

...or the chance of a lifetime?

On your marks, get set...

GO!

Yesterday 2012 London Olympic tickets went on sale yesterday; or rather applications to purchase. You go into a lottery to get them.

I wasted no time:

Your merchandise requests:
Ticketing pin badge - exclusive
Price: £7.00
Quantity: 4
Total cost: £28.00

£6.00 charge for fulfilment and secure delivery to an address in the UK

Maximum cost of application*: £7,359.00

* This is the maximum amount you could be charged. It includes the cost of tickets, merchandise and delivery. It is based on the highest ticket price(s) you have indicated you are willing to pay. Please ensure you have sufficient funds available on your Visa card between 10 May and 10 June 2011.

In theory I could end up with a bill for £7,359.00. But that of course assumes I will get every single ticket that I apply for.

Even then it is still a bargain. With a wheelchair ticket, you get a +1 for free - so I saved 25%.

I think you hear June 24.

There will be hundreds of thousands of people going for them, so I doubt I'll be spending £7k+!!
