I know that tickets purchased at the box office, by phone, and online are eligible for audience rewards points.
What about rush tickets? Can you get points when you buy a rush ticket?

Only tickets purchased online or by phone are eligible. Therefore, rush tickets do not apply.

I second Cupid Boy2 - you can't get points by buying at the box office. You only earn points by buying them or buying online or by phone. You can only redeem by buying online or by phone.

They only reward you for paying full price when you buy through the AR site online or on the phone. The rewards can be quite generous for pre-sales and sometimes after opening - Matilda and Pippin were two examples, but Pippin got even better and doubled their original reward once the show started previews. Redeeming points and cash through AR in advance pulls the price of the tickets down to what you would pay at rush anyway, and the seats are in better locations. Well, save for when you get front row on rush, but if you can't stand in line for hours, AR is a great resources.

Rainbowhigh23 - you can earn points when buying with discounts online. You just put in your Audience Rewards account number and you earn 2 points per dollar spent, I believe. So, if you buy a discount ticket online for $75, you get 150 points. Both Ticketmaster and Telecharge will let you give your account number to earn points.

^ Oh, I didn't know that! I like getting those giant bonuses so I always go through the AR site, but if a show isn't offering a bonus you can still earn. That's great!
