What reviewers want you to know

Positive highlights

  • Great service and hopefully great experience on checking in to concert!
  • The first time was the best in 1996 in Florida with Linda Kodack and the Wings.

Critical highlights

  • They don't tell you about the outrageous "Service Fee" until checkout.
  • And it's ridiculous that I have to type at least 100 characters before being able to submit.

“Tickets we ordered were not those we received”

Mary C.

I ordered for a particular row in Schubert Theater and had my order changed. While this may have been beyond your control, if it was to give the tickets to someone more important than us, that is not a very acceptable way of handling customers. No explanation was ever given, which I feel should have been. I do appreciate that I got a call from the ticket office. We look forward to an enjoyable show!

“I was scammed...please stay away”

Bart S.

I bought two tickets for an NBA game in Portland scheduled on Nov 11, 2018. Downloaded the tickets only to realized on the gate that the tickets were already scanned meaning, somebody have already used it. Luckily, ticketmaster helped me by un-scanning the ticket to get entry. Upon finding my seats, they were already occupied and we're shown identical tickets as i have. The tickets i had was sold twice..

Many of us love our cultural Icons, but trying to see them in person is so disappointing because ticket venders such as this have us by the short hairs. The service charge per ticket was nearly $30. Are you kidding me? Someone is putting their 12 kids through college riding on the coattails of super stars. Pearl Jam tried to do something about this blatant exploitation a couple of decades ago and was unsuccessful. But I would dearly love it if performers banded together and put an end to the parasites.

While my experience ordering the tickets was easy the $80 x 2 "fees" left me with a bad feeling. Not cool.

I don't know about this review writing business inferring that if you don't complete you won't get the tickets...$70 service charges for three electronic tickets to a Lions' game is a lot...also in the terms "Seller's Note: Tickets will be ready for delivery by Dec 14, 2017"...that's more than two months away and it seems like a long time to wait...and then there is only a couple of days before the event to fix any unforeseen issues...hmmm...fool me once shame on you

No problem printing my tickets. The order came through quickly. Also was told I would get a $25 refund. Hope that goes as smoothly as the ticket purchases. The service fees are very high and would recommend lowering them to encourage more business.

Your process fees are too high, you are taking advantage of customers, the original ticket price was $159 I ended up paying double for each ticket with its a big profit on the ticket itself, then you charge me $109 for processing and $7 for electronic delivery, its absolutely overkill, it I didnt have limited time in New York to be able to see this show I would have never use your services.

Service was fast and easy, however I didnt realize I was not going to be able to get my tickets until 4 days before the concert. Slightly nervous about this to be honest, but after reading some reviews Im choosing to remain hopeful. Please dont let me down

The costs of the service and delivery fees are too high. This is very discouraging. The website is excellent. The ease of use is excellent. It is also very easy to order and print the ticket information with an order number. However, I do not know the costs that are incurred on behalf of ticket experts in order to make money.
$36.04 and $15.00.

The website is well laid out and easy to use and the service fee (at least in my case) seemed reasonable, but it was also hidden away on the last page. Transparency in these things always makes for a better customer experience! I would also prefer not to review until I actually have the tickets in hand... (which does not appear to be an option).

Aside from the massive service fee (20+ dollars PER ticket) the buying process is easy. The only thing I hated was the ticket printed out with the actual cost if I were to buy at the gate ($35) I paid $54.00 ea plus a 20 dollar service fee. Kinda crappy.

Easy to use, but sick of so many online purchasing fees! This one is the same as them all! Ticket price total for 2 tickets - $32.00. Total purchase price with Fees - $50! Fees suck!

Why is there a download fee? This should be FREE! I would understand a fee if you are mailing the tickets or hand delivering them to my door or overnighting them, but a FEE -for DOWNLOAD? Ridiculous!!! This is a rip off. I probably won't use this service again just due to the high fee, and sending me 5 emails afterward to confirm I got my tickets with junk mail too even though I opted out.

I can not believe the service charges. They are really expensive. And having this review mandatory before i can get my tickets

Q&A (32)


Most likely not. I ordered mine over a week ago and they still have not delivered them even though the delivery date passed several days ago. This website is a scam, save your money and frustration and buy from a reputable ticket vendor.
