Our sale does not have the same restriction as Burning Man’s. The same credit card can be used to make multiple purchases.

You are getting an error “Promotion code has already been used or is locked temporarily for an active checkout session” – here’s what’s going on: Whenever the purchase link with the code is opened, the code will lock for 30 minutes to allow enough time to enter your purchase information. You may be getting this error because you accidentally closed your browser window, or something else happened to close your current session. Do not panic, just wait for 30 minutes and try the link again.

There is no restrictions on purchasing tickets across multiple sales. We understand you’re likely buying for friends and family, so we do not cross-check for similar names or credit cards.
