Do you enjoy going to concerts, live sport events, attractions and theater shows? Do you like saving money? Then you will love ScoreBig.com. At ScoreBig.com you can save 10%- 60% off tickets to your favorite events. ScoreBig.com is the first and only opaque sales channel to move unsold ticket inventory in a way that protects the ticket owner’s brand and full-price sales. Headquartered in Los Angeles, Calif., ScoreBig.com was founded in 2009 and is backed by Bain Capital Ventures and U.S. Venture Partners. ScoreBig.com was recently recognized by Forbes as one of America’s Most Promising Companies and by Billboard as one of the 10 Best Start-ups of 2012.
ScoreBig has a great selection and is really easy to use. You can choose your own price on seats from the floor to the rafters, and you will ALWAYS pay less than the box office price and will NEVER pay and fees.
After perusing through the selection for Atlanta I decided to purchase Disney On Ice Frozen tickets. I am going to take my daughter out for a mother and daughter date. Other ticket options included Atlanta Falcons, Brad Paisley, LEGOLAND Discovery Center, Nascar, Aerosmith, Atlanta Braves and more.
Ordering the tickets is super easy:
1st you choose your city and your event.
Next you choose the show date and time. Ticket prices will vary depending on the day of the week and time of day.
After you choose a date and time you will then be able to choose your seating and ticket quantity. Seating charts are provided along with a star system. We choose to go with one star seating for our show. By choosing a seating area rather than an exact seat, you give the ticket providers the flexibility they need to give you a great deal.
Now comes the fun part naming your ticket price. It is quiet thrilling to have some control over what you pay! Simply enter a bid and get an instant answer. There is a little meter which will show you your bid success potential. In the screen shot on the left you can see the potential for my bid was not great and my bid did get denied. I then decided to go with a different date and time and the 1 star seating and the bid was accepted. After playing around more with the website I realized that I could have probably made my bid a little lower (around $40) and saved even more. I definitely suggest starting at the low end and working your way up. As a rule of thumb green means go and read means stop when gauging your bid success potential.
My favorite thing about ScoreBig.com is that they don't charge any fees. If you have ordered tickets online in the past you know most ticketing agencies charge on average $10+ in fees. When everything looks good with your order simply enter your payment information and submit your bid. You will get an instant response as to whether or not your bid is accepted. If your bid is not accepted, your card is not charged and you can increase your bid and resubmit or select a different seat, date or time.
The full price of our tickets was around $60.65 each and my bid of $50.00 each was accepted. So we saved about $21.30. The website also works great on a mobile device. Below is a screen shot of the pricing off the venues website. It appears we may have saved even more than $21.30 on our tickets!
ScoreBig tickets are backed by a guarantee. For instance if the tickets you received from a confirmed Instant Bid order are not below Box Office Price you can contact ScoreBig Customer Service at least 24 hours before the event to get the difference refunded.
