I’d like to thank ScoreBig.com for sending me a promotional gift of $100 to try out on their website.  I had never heard of ScoreBig so I was intrigued to see how it was different from StubHub or other websites where you can purchase tickets to events and shows.

A little about how ScoreBig works:

Choose your event - It is easy to browse for shows or events by searching for the artist or by looking at dates, times, or by location.  ScoreBig offers tickets for sports, concerts, theater, Broadway, family shows, and attractions.

Choose your seating area - Select the area you want to sit in for the event you’ll be attending.  Although, you can’t select the exact seat or row you want you will be guaranteed the tickets purchased together will be next to each other.

Purchase your tickets - There are two ways to buy tickets on ScoreBig.  You can either pay a fixed price or make an offer and possibly save more money.

Other facts about ScoreBig!

  • No fees - free delivery
  • Get an instant answer - you find out right away if your offer has been accepted
  • You can pay what you want to pay

My experience with ScoreBig has been a little struggle because at first I tried to get tickets and my offer was declined so I got locked out of the event for 24 hours.  I tried to purchase (3) tickets for the San Diego Zoo.  I’ve always wanted to go to this Zoo but never pulled the trigger so I decided this was the perfect chance to do that.  Tickets to the San Diego Zoo are around $46/adult ticket.  My offer was $100 for 3 tickets.  Since my offer was declined I will try with another offer tomorrow.  I must say I dislike that I have to wait 24 hours to make another offer on this purchase.
