Yo, anyone ever done this?  New York Blood Center is giving out free mets tickets if you donate platelets, and I have b+ blood so I figure I might as well.  I heard its a little more painful than giving blood, any experiences?

if this is the same thing as donating plasma, I've done it.  When I was in college there was a place down the street that would give you 30 bucks to do it.  I was a poor college kid 

it's not painful really, but uncomfortable and kind of a long process.  you're also not allowed to close/rest your eyes while the blood is being drawn.  IMO, buy the tickets if you wanna go see the mets.  that is, unless you're a poor college kid
