We’ve found a way to get discounted tickets to the Miami Heat and some other events, too, most of them sporting events so far.
A new deal site, ScoreBig, has set up shop in the Miami-Fort Lauderdale area with tickets discounted 10% to 60%. The ticket deals change all the time, but the last time we checked we found tickets to a variety of Miami Heat and Florida Panthers games, with discounts ranging from 10% to more than 50% off.
ScoreBig is not a ticket broker but a company that works directly with venues, teams and promoters to sell off excess tickets. It’s a little like Priceline for entertainment and sports tickets.
Here’s how it works:
- Select the event you want and where you want to sit.
- Bid how much you are willing to pay. You’ll have to enter your credit card information here.
- If your bid is accepted, you’re notified instantly, and the company charges your credit card.
- If your bid is rejected, you can place a new bid.
- Sometimes you’ll get a counter offer, which you are free to accept or reject.
No additional fees are added to the price you agree on.
ScoreBig offers concert and theater tickets, too, but there are none available right now in South Florida.
To get the deals, you have to join ScoreBig, but that’s free. You have to be invited to join and normally there is a waiting list. However, you can join immediately if you register here.
ScoreBig is an advertising partner of On the Cheap.
