In the event that the program needs to end or be updated we will send an advanced warning to users and give them the opportunity to redeem points prior to their expiration.
I believe there was an error in my points calculation, what should I do?
Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will work to quickly address the problem.
What can I do with my points?
Points may be redeemed for two different types of rewards: (1) Auction prizes and (2) Marketplace items. To acquire these rewards Compadres can bid for Auctions and buy Marketplace items.
What sorts of items are available through the auctions, marketplace and sweepstakes?
New items are added regularly to My Compadres Rewards. Here are some examples of rewards:
Auction: Auction prizes could include an exclusive Padres experience such as: an inning in the broadcast booth, honorary first pitch, social media takeover and autographed memorabilia.

Can I win an auction multiple times?
Compadres may not bid on experiences that you have already won. This allows as many unique Compadres as possible to enjoy each experience.
Do I lose points used to bid if I dont win an Auction?
No, points are only deducted from the Compadre who wins the Auction.
What are membership tiers?
Membership Tiers represent the Compadre level and specific eligible rewards. Some rewards items may only be available for certain levels or categories of Season Ticket Membership, for example.
What is E-Cash?
E-cash is a fast, easy and rewarding way to purchase concessions and merchandise at Petco Park. All Compadres are automatically eligible to use e-cash. Load e-cash by logging into the Compadres portal and selecting a credit card and amount to transfer to e-cash. Compadres earn 5% cash back in additional e-cash when you preload funds to your account. By signing up for auto-reload, Season Ticket Members will earn a $25 bonus the first time your account reloads. Earn points for each increment of $10 in e-cash spent.
Where can I use E-cash?
E-cash may be spent at all general concession and merchandise locations at Petco Park. Some in-stadium restaurants and premium areas currently do not have e-cash available.
How does my concessions discount work?
By showing and scanning your Membership card or digital barcode at any location in Petco, you receive a 10% discount. If you use stored value e-cash on your Membership card to make your purchase, your discount automatically jump to 15%. Either way, all you need to do as a Member is scan your card with one of the new digital readers at each location.
Will people using my tickets receive a discount as well?
A Membership card is required to receive the discount. If you have nominated someone as a share partner and she/he has their own Membership card, they will receive the same discount. Anyone using tickets who doesn't have a Membership card will not receive the discount.
How do I load funds to my card to receive the larger discount?
Through the new online portal, there is a section labeled "e-cash" that allows you to load funds to your Membership card via any credit or debit card. You can also select auto-reload and never worry about the balance on your card.
What is auto-reload?
Auto re-load automatically adds value to your Membership card whenever it dips below a certain level, for the most convenient experience possible. The values are fully customizable and just for selecting auto-reload, the Padres will give you a $25 bonus the first time you use it!
Can I use e-cash at non-baseball events?
Yes, Season Ticket Members can use e-cash at Petco Park for non-baseball events.
Is there a minimum or maximum e-cash balance?
Will my e-cash be available after the end of the season?
E-cash will be stored on the account and the value will not expire.
What are the Padres doing to protect my credit card information?
Credit card information is not stored on the Compadres Fan Rewards portal. We use a credible PCI compliant payment gateway (Sage) to ensure that information is secure. All prompts to enter payment information are being redirected to Sage.
How do I correct an erroneous charge made to my e-cash balance?
A concessions employee will have the ability to refund any incorrect charges. If a possible erroneous charge is discovered after the game please send an email to email@example.com and we will work to quickly address the problem.
