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, customers
     are guaranteed a 100% refund in the event the requested seats are
     no longer available.
