Get smart about buying tickets!

Getting the best tickets is all about smart shopping -- and we're here to help! If you're thinking of buying tickets to a concert, sporting, or theater event, here are some tips to enhance your shopping experience, and help you save money!

  (1)  Buy your tickets from a reputable distributor. If you opt to
       purchase your tickets from an unknown vendor, be sure to research
       customer reviews and/or call their customer service line to get
       a sense of their level of service. Any reputable vendor should
       provide customer service Mon-Fri 9 a.m.-5 p.m., at minimum. The
       TicketNetwork customer service center is open seven days a week
       from 7 a.m. - 1 a.m.
  (2)  Confirm the website check-out is secure. It is not enough for an
       online retailer to "say" their website is secure - it needs to be
       certified by an approved scanning vendor (ASV). TicketNetwork, for
       example, is certified by ControlScan. In addition, it has added
       EVSSL (Extended Verification Secure Socket Layer) check-out
       security. You know a site is EVSSL secure when the URL bar at the
       top turns GREEN.
  (3)  Always check the purchase guarantee. Any online purchase, from a
       toaster to a car, has some type of purchase guarantee. While it may
       seem tedious, it is in every shopper's interest to read the fine
       print. When purchasing tickets through TicketNetwork.com, customers
       are guaranteed a 100% refund in the event the requested seats are
       no longer available.
