When purchasing event tickets, you've either got to deal with an evil scalper, or worse, Ticketmaster, a betrayal of BFF-ship that'll break Eddie Vedder's tender heart. Get tix on your terms, at Fanprice.
FP lets you set your own willing-to-pay price for whatever you want to attend, then essentially proffers that offer to interested sellers -- guys who want to wash their hands of Tori Amos tickets as much as you crave to dirty yours. To start, find your desired event -- everything from sports, to concerts, to "Theatre" (a spelling which sadly precludes "movie"); you can even pick a specific section using their detailed venue maps, then tailor your offer to the goodness/suckness of the seats. Potential sellers can see all offers; if your measly proposal jives with them, they'll confirm, Price'll run your credit card, and the seller'll either FedEx you hard copies or email you e-tickets -- whose convenience is counterbalanced by their poor showing next to a lock of your hair in a scrapbook.
As with sites like StubHub, each seller's inventory is guaranteed by their credit card, so if they sketch on sending you the goods, Price'll buy you similar tickets using their plastic -- so your concert-going rapprochement with Eddie can only be spoiled by you refusing to foot the bill for his $8 Bud Light.
