ScoreBig Review

I got the chance to review ScoreBig, which is a new ticketing website (like StubHub). It works a little differently in that you aren't necessarily purchasing a specific ticket - you bid on tickets in certain sections, and then either get the bid or don't get the bid. You also get an instant answer, which is nice.

I bid on tickets for the a Minnesota Twins vs Colorado Rockies game, and it went well and was actually a little fun. I bid for two tickets - once I put my tickets and corresponding section, it told me roughly how likely I was to get the tickets. Then I pressed the button, and right away it told me my bid was successful!

Also, there were no fees at all, which was pretty nice, because those have a tendency to gouge you! Just for fun, I compared my tickets and pricing to stubhub, and my tickets were cheaper than they would have been on stubhub for that particular area. So, I would recommend trying out ScoreBig, and I will likely try it out again. I can't speak to their amount of tickets or ubiquity of events, but I can say that my experience was a successful one!

Here is some more information on them: enables consumers to get great tickets for live sports, concert and theater events – at guaranteed savings of up to 60 percent. customers pick their own price on seats from the floor to the rafters, always pay less than box office price, and never pay any fees.
