We have a new addition to the sidebar on the left, across from our beloved George Kottaras Walk Rate Tracker. The addition is from our new partners at SeatGeek. They offer a variety of interesting services for finding great deals on tickets – I’ll leave it to them to explain how it all works.
If you haven’t yet noticed, Disciples of Uecker has added a SeatGeek widget, displaying tickets for upcoming Brewers games. Jack asked if I would explain how SeatGeek can help you in your search for Brewers tickets.
I’m sure there are many times when you want to go to a Brewers game but either the game is sold out, there are no good seats available, or you think you can get a better deal on the secondary ticket market. Craigslist can sometimes offer great deals but it is not a safe option and people are routinely scammed. That leaves ticket sites like Stubhub, TicketGator, and TicketNetwork, which offer money back guarantees but how do you decide which site to look on? SeatGeek solves this problem by aggregating all of the tickets for the given event so you can view all the tickets in one place, compare prices, and find the best deals. Just as you would not look at only one airline site when you buy a ticket to fly, why should you only look at one ticketing site? Think of SeatGeek as the Kayak of the secondary ticket market.
What sets SeatGeek apart though is our ticket price forecasts. Using a complex algorithm, we are able to predict whether ticket prices are going to go up or down. By telling you when prices are lowest, we make it cheaper for you to go to games and concerts. If the price is going down, you may want to wait to buy until the price reaches rock-bottom. If the price is going up, you can buy now and save money.
The widgets will display upcoming events and include our prediction about where prices are headed. All you have to do is click on the event you want to go to and you with be taken to a page with all available secondary market tickets to the event.
Say you want to go to the Brewers-Nationals game on July 23rd. The arrow shows that we are predicting no change in price so it is fine to buy now.
One you click on the link, you will be taken to our site where all the available tickets will be displayed.
