My good friends over at Bloguin have hooked the blog up with a new ticket purchasing service called TiqIQ. A lot of the other Bloguin blogs are using this and swear by it.
TiqIQ is a an event ticket aggregator that tracks prices and individual ticket listings to get you guys the lowest prices.
From the TiqIQ website…
We have developed an event ticket aggregation platform that tracks prices and individual ticket listings in the dynamically changing event ticket market. There are four major components to what we do:
2. TiqZone Categorization: We break each venue up into TiqZones, which are groupings of sections that we’ve determined are comparable in value. For more info on TiqZones, click here.
3. TiqIQ Statistics: We provide ticket-level buying intelligence through our IQ rating and TiqIQ Statistics. For more info on TiqIQ Statistics, click here.
4. Event Details: We give you time and location information on the event.
They aggregate listings from StubHub, eBay, TicketNetwork and TicketsNow.
To give you an example, the Rangers next home game is this Sunday against the Capitals and TiqIQ is showing there 3,500 available tickets for the game and that there are numerous tickets available for well below face value.
There is also a tab for online auctions. I just saw two tickets for Sunday in the 100s go for $64 each!!! Those are at least $350 seats.
I definitely recommend you guys check this out. I also have a widget for TiqIQ that will always be on my sidebar and I’ll try to give you guys headsup on any great deals I see.
