99¢ Giants Tickets
What’s the cheapest you ever thought you’d pay for Giants tickets? How about 99¢?
For tonight’s Giants/Padres game at 7:15pm at AT&T Park, there’s lots of super-discounted tickets on StubHub – as little as $0.01- and there’s about 10 pair for less than $1.
Why are the tickets so cheap? It’s not a special promotion, just good ol’ supply and demand since the Padres suck and the Giants are well out of the race.
The Fine Print – Evil service charges!
how a 99 cent ticket becomes $6
- You have to pay a service fee of 10% of the order (a minimum of $5)
- You do have to pay an “instant download fee” of around $5.20
- So if you found two 99¢ tickets, you’d have pay: 99¢ x 2 plus $5 service charge, plus $5.20 download fee for a total of $12.18 – but that’s for two tickets and you get to go straight to the gate so looking at the total price it’s really a screaming deal.
Now most of these seats are nosebleeds, in the View Reserve – usually in sections 328 and 330, (with some being bleachers) but who cares when you’ve paid less for tickets than your muni fare to get to the game?
