Tips on Finding Hard to Find Seat Tickets Online

Sep 16, 2008
There was a time when tickets to events such as Broadway theatre plays, football games, baseball games, hotel tickets and even air tickets were available in the black market for exorbitant prices.

People were willing to stand in the street for hours before the event just in the hope of getting one ticket even at a 50% surcharge. With the advent of technology the scene has changed. Now you can browse the Net and find that hard to find seat ticket online at the market price or less!

The Internet has amazing sites which is browsed with determination reveal a haven for deal makers so here are a couple of tips to help you find your dream ticket online.

1. If you want a ticket to a Broadway show or sports event and the actual box office is closed or sold out before the day of the event has come then go through various forums and blogs related to the site and leave your name and contact information stating how desperate you are for tickets. It will surprise you how helpful people can be and fans are always willing to help out so you may get a ticket from someone who is not as desperate as you to go to the event. Just communicate your enthusiasm properly.

2. Some sites work as broker sites to the original sales agent. So if Ticketmaster is selling tickets to the Eagles game you are desperate to see their site may be sold out but the brokers may still have tickets. This is how it works-if TicketMaster had 1000 tickets for the game, they would retain 800 and give 200 to various brokers. So if 800 tickets are sold Ticketmaster may say they are sold out but browse to other sites and you may get tickets that are still unsold by the legitimate brokers.

3. EBay is a great way to get tickets. Some people who have bought a ticket may decide to cancel their program and you may find the ticket online. It may be a bit pricier before the actual event date but on the event date the price may go down or up...all depending on the demand of the ticket.

4. Sites like FoundTicket are working on all of the above ways to gather tickets to those hard to find seats. They keep in mind that customers want the best and aim for the best seat tickets to the most popular events. You can get a wide variety of hard to get tickets at this site and buy well in time for the event; from sports to concerts and hotel to limo tickets they have a great selection.

While the above listed ways to get tickets work out well a piece of advice would be not to opt for tickets at the last minute if you live well away from the event. A local show is fine but last minute tickets to an event 50 miles from your home means stress and that means the show will just be more work than it's worth.

Also, make sure you do your research about the seat arrangement you do not want to spend money and effort on a ticket that seats you behind a pillar, behind a camera or at an angle where the show is watched from the TV screen above you.

The whole concept of getting hard to find seat tickets online is for the convenience and if the ticket is not worth the seat you get well then, the search was worthless. So the best option would be going to a ticket site like that do the legwork for you.
