If your a parent you know how it is when there’s that newest boy band coming to town for a concert, those tickets are a MUST HAVE for your kids. My house is no exception, however, I really refuse to pay concert ticket prices for an 8 and 10 year old to go see the latest boy band. As much as my youngest daughter wanted to see her favorite group One Direction, even if I wanted to get her tickets, at this point, both shows in Detroit were sold out, and she wasn’t going, which made her very sad.
However, there was a saving grace in our life where I could …. ScoreBig!
ScoreBig allows you to search for the latest concert, sporting event and more in your local area and you can name your own price for your tickets. That One Direction concert, if I don’t want to pay more than $50 a ticket, I don’t have to, I get to name my own price and make an offer if there are tickets available.
ScoreBig is easy to use, you simply search for your area and see what’s available right now. If it’s a baseball game your looking for, you can search through the sports tickets available, and if you’re like me and it’s a One Direction ticket your on the hunt for, simply check out the music tickets available.
I was amazed that I actually could find One Direction tickets available, and there were a few options of tickets that I could choose from. You can purchase tickets based on the seating area, and/or price point you’d like. I found tickets for $53 available, being that my daughter is 8 there’s not a whole lot of expectations on seating for her, she’s just happy to go, so at this price point, this was in upper level seating which was fine with me. I hit the quantity of tickets that I wanted to purchase, and was lucky that 2 were available, I then ‘offered’ my price of $50 per ticket. ScoreBig will then tell you the chances of getting your tickets for that price. Next, you’ll put in your credit card information (which is not charged if your offer isn’t accepted).
Before I found this most recent offer, I had tried a few times before for higher priced tickets, still offering $50 a piece, and did get rejected, my credit card was NEVER charged, however, this time I got lucky and my offer of $50 ($100 total) was accepted!!! I was now going to be the best mom ever and take my daughter to her very first concert to see her favorite guys ever!
I found out my offer was accepted in a timely manner, (really it was almost instant) and I got a surprise of a discount where my tickets came out to be even less than what I had offered, which was a welcome surprise.
Once my credit card was charged, I got an email confirmation about my ticket purchase and a few days later, my tickets were in hand, Fedex delivered them right to my home.
What I also love about ScoreBig is that there were NO additional fees on my tickets! I wanted to spend $100, that’s all I spent, in fact, I even spent less!
I’ll be using ScoreBig for a few more concerts this summer I’m sure, I love how it works, and how I can pick what I want to pay for the concert without fees and hassles.
I was provided with a code to use on ScoreBig in return for my honest review, all opinions are of my own. Please see my disclosure policy for more info.
