If you are going to sporting events, oftentimes the first names you will hear for places to buy tickets include Stubhub, Vivid, Seatgeek, Ticketmaster, etc.; however, one name that is not consistently mentioned much is Tickpick.
While Tickpick is a relative newcomer to the ticket space, it has been around since 2011; I have started to hear about it on some podcasts though, so maybe they have only begun to pick up their advertising in recent years.
When buying sports tickets, oftentimes the most important factor (and oftentimes the only factor) is how much the tickets cost. While most websites are usually around the same area, I have found that Tickpick seems to be the most consistently cheap website. Tickpick does not charge fees, and all the prices shown on its website reflect the price you will actually pay (compared to websites like Stubhub and others where you will oftentimes be charged at least a 10% fee).
In addition to having the lowest ticket prices for most events, Tickpick also has a great, easy to use UI. I personally hate the experience of having to shop for tickets on Stubhub, as I don’t like the interface or process of buying tickets from them (also Stubhub will often show listings that no longer exist). Tickpick has a really clean interface that is always up to date, as well as showing a grading system for how good of a value tickets are (which is normally pretty accurate). This is in addition to offering the ability to track an event and see how many tickets are being sold and how the price has varied over time; all in all, there are just so many great features on Tickpick that make the user experience a lot better.
If you have never heard of Tickpick and don’t like the experience of checking out on other ticketing websites, be sure to use Tickpick for your next sporting event/concert!
