Here are 4 ways to save money on entertainment tickets
HOUSTON – As concert halls and events reopen, many people are ready to go out. But when you buy tickets online, these service charges can really increase the cost of your seats. Our KPRC 2 consumer team is looking for ways to save money on tickets.
You can probably buy tickets for something and pay a lot more when you finally get to the cashier. For example, tickets for a comedy show start at $ 35 each, but once you pay the $ 13 service charge and taxes, the final bill goes over $ 100! There are several things you can do to reduce your bill:
Did you know that Vivid Seats offers a cash back program? You can get up to 9% cashback when you buy your tickets through the free program. Vivid Seats says you can redeem your money through the app at any time. You don’t have to wait for it to build up to a certain amount.
Look for cash back website offers. The Rakuten deals site can help you earn an additional 2% off the purchase of your entertainment ticket. In fact, Rakuten automatically reimburses you at over 2,500 online stores. It’s similar to the Ibotta app or browser extension which will also give you cash back on your purchases. With Ibotta, it’s harder to find deals on entertainment tickets. You can stack offers from Rakuten with the Vivid Seats Cashback rewards program.
You can find places that sell tickets with no fees included. The Tick Pick site is a toll-free ticketing site dedicated to the sale of free tickets. You can also search for discount codes to lower fees on popular ticket sales sites. Websites like megaseats.com and seat geek.com help you find active coupon codes to enter during checkout. We also found websites like Free Ticket and Tickets for Less, both promising no fees.
Some reward cards like Capital One’s Savor Rewards offer cash back on entertainment purchases, so be sure to use the card for the best perks for your purchases. American Express has a Blue Cash Preferred card that offers entertainment shopping offers.
Of course, you can still save money on these ticketing fees by going to the box office in person to purchase your tickets instead of purchasing them online. Let us know if you have any other tips for getting deals on entertainment tickets.
