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.
