You must retain your Comic-Con 2014 badge to be eligible for 2015 badge preregistration. Please do not throw away, give away, or lose your Comic-Con 2014 badge as it contains valuable information required to participate in preregistration. Plus, it’s cool to frame after the show!

Thank you very much for your support of Comic-Con International! Stay tuned for additional Comic-Con 2015 preregistration information.
Long story short?
YOU MUST KEEP THIS YEARS COMIC CON BADGE IN ORDER TO QUALIFY FOR PREREGISTRATION FOR NEXT YEAR.
Technically, to preregistration for this years convention (2014) you had to save the previous badge as well (2013)- but so many people forgot about this tidbit and raised hell, that Comic Con lifted that qualification for this year. Personally, I’m keeping my fingers crossed that Comic Con will hold ONTO this policy for this year, because it helps boots my chances of getting my 4 day (with preview night!) badges. Comic Con will most likely do open sales/general public See you Geeks at Comic Con, and may the odds ever be in your favor for SDCC 2015.
