I'm not afraid to admit it, I love a good deal. The only problem is I'm a terrible haggler. So, I love it when companies just make it easy and offer me a bargain from the get-go. That's why I was excited to stumble across Goldstar when I was surfing the Web the other day.
The site offers tickets to a wide variety of events such as concerts, plays, sports, films, comedy nights, spa treatments, and more. And, here's the best part, tickets are priced below face value—frequently up to half off!
When you visit for the first time you just need to register, but it's completely free. I did and there weren't any catches or hidden ads (If you've ever ordered from Vista Print, you know what I mean). As I surfed around, I saw that you can earn ticket credits for referring your friends to events. There's also info on parking availability, food and beverage options, dress codes, and assorted tips from other members. I even noticed user reviews, which was a nice surprise. Nothing against the entertainment critics, but it's nice to read what ordinary people think.
If you like to get your deals in real time, just search Goldstar on Twitter and you can sign up for tweets in your area (they have a presence in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Las Vegas, New York, Orange County, San Diego, Washington D.C., Chicago, San Jose, and Boston). Its Facebook page also offers contests where you can win tickets.
If you love an evening out on the town, but lack the dinero to pay those astronomical prices, it's worth checking out. As for me, there's a Murder Mystery Dinner with my name on it.
