    I submitted my second show at the 11th hour (literally) on the 15th to get the free tote bag. This morning I got a email saying my show was on hold because of a cc error. I corrected it immediately. Will this affect me getting my free tote since the show won't be processed till after the 15th?

    As long as it was held and submitted on time, and resolved promptly, you're fine.

    I feel your pain, I had the same thing happen. It seems to be more and more I am having credit cards issues and problems resolving declined payment cards. I wish there was a way to get around this, it is frustrating.

    I work with two groups, military & school employees. I schedule my shows near their payday ONLY! I tell my hosts that if they hold the show near a payday, they will get better sales & it's proven to be true. If the show is the weekend before, we don't close until after the paychecks hit the bank accounts. This pay period fell on Tuesday (2PM on Wednesday for us here in Japan), so I held open the 2 shows from last weekend & submitted them at 6PM when everyone's paycheck has just hit their account. It really makes a difference! If we hold the show open over a week past payday, I start having issues. In the states, I know it's more difficult to have a group who all get paid simultaneously, but if you know it's a bunch of co-workers, try encouraging the host to hold & close the show ASAP after payday. It will help their host benefits & you'll have less headaches. ;)
