For Super Bowl Tickets, There's Always Costco

We’re headed into the second weekend of the NFL playoff season, and we’ve already had our share of fake cheese products, fried this and that, and plenty of nachos. Despite our love for watching the games at home or with friends there’s something special—and expensive—about being there in person, so that’s why we’re here to help you check out this year’s big game in February.

The Super Bowl is scheduled to do its thing in the rain, snow, sleet, or whatever else, as this year things are taking place outdoors at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey. Obviously tickets have long been sold out, but there are certain chances to get to this big event as long as you have the funding.

There’s plenty of packages here or there, but if you ask us the best place to head is Costco. You trust them with your oversized mayonnaise and bulk purchase needs, so we think it only makes sense to order up a super-sized experience from them as well. Their basic package starts at $14,000 for two people, and that gets you all kinds of stuff. You get four nights accommodations for two at the W Hotel in Union Square between January 30 and February 3. After that there’s a souvenir gift bag, tickets to The Taste of the NFL, and a boat cruise before the game featuring a chat by NFL great—and quarterback dad—Archie Manning.

As for the most important part of the package is concerned, you’ll be getting a pair—as in two—of upper level tickets to the game on February 2. It sounds like things will be between the goal-line and 20-yard-line, so the exact ones may be slightly subject to change. All your transportation to and from the game appears to be included, so all you need to do is get yourself to New York City via plane, train, or automobile.

For those with $16,000 there’s a similar package that has different hotel accommodations—Westin Times Square—and features seats within the lower level for the big game. Sure this sounds like a lot of money, and it certainly is; however, these seem to sell out in advance of the game each and every year. So if you’re really thinking about going and throwing down this kind of cash—do it sooner than later.
