January 9, 2015 at 10:14 AM | by | ()

For football fanatics, this will be a nail-biter weekend as the NFL Divisional Playoffs do their thing on both Saturday and Sunday. This is the final weekend where there will be four games, as next week there will be only two—as teams play for a final shot to get to the Super Bowl on February 1.

If you're feeling good about your team making it to the big game in Arizona, then you may want to hit up Costco for tickets. Yes, Costco.

Aside from ten packs of socks and giant jars of mayonnaise, the bulk warehouse store has plenty of big event tickets. Just as in years past Costco is ready to get you to the game, but that only assumes that you have some deep pockets.

If You're Looking For Super Bowl Tickets, You Might Just Score A 'Deal'

January 29, 2014 at 9:50 AM | by | ()

In case you didn’t hear—this year’s Super Bowl is going to be played outdoors in the cold weather and the elements. If you’re prepared to sit in the stadium all bundled up there’s good news, as apparently resale ticket prices for the big game continue to drop. We don’t know if it’s the weather, the teams, or that fact that people don’t to travel to New Jersey, but it’s clear that things are getting somewhat more affordable.

As soon as the conference championship games were over and the matchup was set, some seating experts were reporting that average tickets were going for around $3,000. But just a week into the hype and festivities, average prices are roughly 40 percent lower, and it sounds like tickets to this year’s game could be the lowest on average since 2002.

Need a Ticket to the Super Bowl? Costco Has You Covered

January 16, 2013 at 11:11 AM | by | ()

If your team is still alive and kicking during this year’s National Football League playoffs—congratulations—our team hasn’t made it to the postseason in years.

However, it’s never too soon—or too late—to start planning on attending this year’s big game.

There’s playoff packages and ticket deals all over the internet up for sale, but for some reason the offerings by Costco just seemed like a good option as well as kind of funny. They’ve got gallons of mayonnaise, socks and underwear in bulk, and now they have tickets, hotel packages, and everything else you need for a weekend at the game.

How to Cancel an Airline Ticket Within 24 Hours, Without Fees

November 14, 2012 at 11:53 AM | by | ()

We’ve all been there—you enter the credit card digits on what you think is awesome airfare, but just moments later you realize that really wasn’t the case. Thankfully Uncle Sam has got your back more than ever, as now cancelling flights within 24 hours of booking is pretty much the law. So if you realize your best friend can’t skip out of work, or if you see an even better fare less than a day later you can cancel your purchase—hassle free. We’ve rounded up some of the policies below to ensure that you can book first and figure things out later.

· Delta
They call it their “risk-free guarantee” and they actually had this pretty generous policy before the new rules and regulations went into effect. Refunds are allowed for most tickets purchased directly through their website, as long as you are leaving from the United States, US Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, and Canada. Again, you can do it all online, and you will be credited back with a full refund—including any prepaid fees and direct ticketing charges—with no cancellation fee.

Delta Might Just Give You A Refund If You're Afraid of the TSA

November 29, 2010 at 3:50 PM | by | ()

If all that touchy feely security stuff has you a little intimidated about flying this holiday season, you might want to consider buying your ticket with Delta. There’s no guarantees, but the airline has stated that they would consider refunds to anyone that chooses not to fly due to TSA-a-phobia.

Several airlines—like American and US Airways—have come out to confirm that new TSA procedures won’t change their refund policies, but as of now, it seems like Delta is the only airline willing to budge on instances where customers request a refund resulting from TSA troubles. If you’re really concerned you can always book a fully refundable ticket; however, those are probably at least twice as expensive as the traditional non-refundable ticket options.

Virgin America Launches Refundable Main Cabin Tickets With 'Hangover Clause'

October 9, 2009 at 2:51 PM | by | ()

Virgin America, the California-based airline that paid too much for their ubiquitously-plastered slogan "on a mission to make flying good again," is launching a new class of fully-refundable, fully-transferable flight options. The "Main Cabin Refundable" fares will obviously cost a little bit more but, in addition to allowing you a wide range of ticket changes, they come with perks like checking in a bag for free (no small perk these days). This is basically a travel insurance-plus fare.

Main Cabin Refundable tickets are fully refundable up to the literal minute of departure. Ditto for transferring the tickets to a different name. There are no blackout dates, no minimum or maximum stay requirements, and no advanced purchases required. They really seem to be going out of their way to make these fares usable and attractive, even refunding the differences between old and new tickets to your credit card.

White House Easter Egg Roll Now Selling Tickets Online

Where: 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., Washington DC, United States
March 26, 2009 at 9:52 AM | by | ()

Why shouldn't a trip to the nation's best known address be a mouse click away? For the first time ever the White House announced tickets to its annual Easter Egg Roll would be available online, and harried parents with Blackberrys everywhere rejoiced.

The annual and largely secular event attracts thousands of kids to push hard-boiled eggs through the normally sedate White House lawn in a tradition originally begun by First Lady Dolley Madison. This year's Roll, held on April 13, has been given the tech treatment with tickets available here right now through Front Gate, as well as a fitness gloss emphasizing healthy living.

Whether that includes a balanced diet involving eggs is hard to say, but families who are already headed to Washington D.C. for spring break should snatch up a spot and the chance to meet the President and First Lady, who normally preside over the event. But luck has to be on your side: Unfortunately, when we were finally able to load Front Gate's dedicated page, it told us tickets would be available "at various times" and to keep checking back.
