    I attempted to purchase two tickets last night and both times received this error.

    "Sorry, the order you are attempting to view either failed or does not exist."

    I purchased 2 tickets again and received the same error again.

    They billed my card twice and I received no tickets at all. I could not print tickets as there was nothing to print from the error page.

    I get home after purchasing tickets at the box office to find the billed me twice anyway.

    I got on there live chat to and waited two hours only to be booted of when the que got down to 1.

    There were so many complaints on facebook last night that they scrubber their page in the early morning

    I purchased 5 tickets and was charged $1.25 each for a convenience fee and was inconvenienced. We attended Carmike 12-Westwood in Fayetteville, NC. The ticket window was closed and we had to wait in the concession stand line behind others that were just purchasing their tickets and also behind those ordering popcorn, soda, candy, etc. just to pick up our pre-paid tickets. I asked the Theater Manager if he could open a line just for tickets and he said no because he was short staffed. I would have left but we had already purchased our tickets.

    I requested a $6.25 refund from Fandango and they denied my request. It's unfortunate that they don't care about customer service.

    I WILL NEVER USE FANDANGO AGAIN AND I AM ASKING THAT YOU DON'T EITHER!

    Your credit card company should take care of you. Just dispute the charges with them.

    Doesn't excuse the horrible customer service from Fandango, though...

    Lol that is pretty entertaining. Those customer no service minions are tireless with their various incarnations of "we can't".

    I went to see an early movie at the Palms Casino IMAX, but, after having bought my tickets from Fandango, I was pretty shocked to find out that I would have to go stand in the ticket line anyway to get my 3D glasses. So, because of Fandango, I was late getting into the theatre because I was stupid enough to assume that paying extra for the tickets online would somehow be faster. Of course, they said it wasn't their problem when I complained. Then I thought that maybe their crappy service was just a fluke, that is until I read all the complaints on Amazon from people who bought Fandango gift cards. It's a horrible company and I wish I had known this sooner, now I just want to help spread the word about how worthless they are.

    Who owns Fandango?

    "Typically", but not always, companies with this bad of service are owned by "folks from another country". They don't have a miniscule clue as to customer service, and could care less anyway.

    I could mention the typical mid east countries, but then I'd be labeled a racer, er, rocker, er racistor...yeah, that's it.

    Definition;
    A Rasistor. A person who is a Racist, or maybe not.

    Thanks for the heads up. I HATE these kinds of companies!

    Apparently Fandago was caught doing shady business with their customer's credit card info back in 09.
