If you’re like me, waiting until the last minute either to decide you’re going to go to a game – or in my case, waiting to find out whether you’ll even be in town to be ABLE to go to the game – tickets in a location that you would like to sit can sometimes be hard to come by.
That’s why I’m hopeful some of you dedicated readers (I’ll take two out of three) will enjoy the opportunity to use TiqIQ’s robust purchasing system through PH8 to get tickets anytime, including last minute.
For those of you who book travel often and are familiar with the site Kayak – think of TiqIQ as sort of a Kayak for sports tickets. They search sites selling tickets to the events you are looking for – in this case, Cardinals games both home and away – and provide you both average price information and the best deals available.
We’ll be getting periodic information from the folks at TiqIQ throughout the season as well, to keep you up-to-date on the ticket market. For instance, a couple weeks ago, the top ten Cards games in terms of available ticket prices looked like this:
Great news Cards fans – as of today, Opening Day tickets have apparently come down…
This is just one example of how you can use the data provided from TiqIQ (and we’ll keep passing along anything we receive from them) to track ticket prices and jump at just the right time to see the games you most want to see in 2011.
More features of TiqIQ:
1. Aggregated Listings: They aggregate all major sellers in the market so you can find the best deal.
2. TiqZone Categorization: They break each venue up into TiqZones, which are groupings of sections that we’ve determined are comparable in value.
3. TiqIQ Statistics: They provide ticket-level buying intelligence through their IQ rating and TiqIQ Statistics.
4. E-Ticket Filter: Want tickets last minute? You can find all the available e-tickets so you can print your tickets from home or the office.
5. All-in Pricing Option: Before you complete your sale you’ll be able to tell exactly how much your tickets will cost including all service and shipping fees.
So please, before you buy tickets for the next Cards, take a second and check PH8 Tickets (and there’s a sidebar widget for the upcoming game too) to see if you can find a deal!
