What is the best way to purchase tickets?? Appart from going direct to ticketmaster and buying the day they come out, I believe its buying from peer to peer sites like StubHub or Ebay. The challenge with ebay being that you don't know for sure until the auction ends that you have bought the tickets. But a site like Stubhub is not a bidding auction. The price is posted and then people buy the tickets.
After doing some research - asking some ticket brokers over the phone and then reviewing the closing bids of online bid sites. We determined that the lowest purchase price on average was from a peer to peer ticket site. Meaning you won't ever be in competition for tickets and you won't have to wait to find out if you won the bidding. I don't like waiting for anything... Plus, if I didn't win - the cost would increase for the next bidding.
