It used to be that you could walk up to the box office window and buy a ticket for a baseball game or concert you wanted to see
But today, tickets are in high demand – and getting your hands on a pair isn’t as easy as it used to be. Even MOVIES are selling out.
So – what’s the shortest distance between you and the event you want to see? Here’s a guide to
- For a big blockbuster movie. Bypass the line at the theatre and order movie tickets online. "Fandango.com" and "Movie Tickets.com" are your best options. And most of the time you can just print the tickets at home. There’s usually a small fee, but when you’re cruising past the 50 people waiting in line, and getting your pick of the seats - it’ll be worth it.
- Your favorite sporting event. Check out the website 'Stubhub.com'. It’s one of the best ticket marketplaces for all kinds of games. Tickets are sold by both professional retailers and regular folks who just need to get rid of them. And they have great fraud protect in place, so you don’t have to worry about being ripped off.And get this - if your tickets don’t arrive in time, or they’re not valid for some reason, Stub Hub will refund your money or replace the tickets with seats that are equally as good as, or better, than the ones you originally bought.
- Wanna go see taping of your favorite TV show? Scoring tickets is easy – if you do it early enough. A company called "Audiences Unlimited" is the authorized distributor for most TV production companies in New York and Los Angeles. And you can order tickets online to shows like America’s Funniest Videos, Reba and According To Jim. Just go to TVTickets.com, and best of all – they’re free! But a lot of shows have minimum age requirements, so just make sure you know the rules.
