Instead of always paying set prices for sporting event tickets, what if you could make offers for seats that you want?
Actually, there's already a site that allows you to do this. ScoreBig.com lets you name your own price for tickets, and the process is pretty simple.
If the "name your own price" mantra sounds familiar, it's because the ScoreBig model works a lot like what Priceline.com does with travel and hotels. You're bidding on a general location of your seats based on rating, just like Priceline does with having you choose from 1-star up to 5-star hotels.
After you set up an account, you find your event. Then, it works like this:
- Select quantity of seats.
- Select seat rating (typically 1-star for nosebleeds and 5-star for club seats).
- Enter your bid price. You'll see a bar right under your offer that shows your probability of success.
- Enter credit card information and submit your bid.
- Receive an INSTANT answer.
- If bid is not accepted, review / accept counter-offer.
That's all there is to it! Of course, your credit card isn't charged unless your offer is accepted.
When reviewing prices, keep in mind that there are no additional fees or charges. What you see is your out the door final cost.
This is certainly a different process than other ticket selling sites, but ScoreBig is a tool I think you should add to your arsenal when you're shopping around for the best deal. Being in Buffalo, I've noticed some seats to Sabres and Bills games can be had for better prices than I've found elsewhere.
If you set up an account today, they'll give you a $10 discount on your first purchase.
