There's nothing quite like attending a professional sporting event. However, the cost associated with seeing a live sporting event in-person often prohibits those wanting to go from actually going.One way to decrease the price of attending a game is getting free tickets. Unfortunately, obtaining such in this manner is easier said than done. Another option is to try your hand in getting a deal in the secondary market. For most people, this means hoping on the internet and navigating to StubHub. But I would like to introduce you guys to a new option called ScoreBig.What's unique about ScoreBig.com is it allows customers to set their own price for seats, always paying less than box office prices, and without being surprisingly hit by additional fees. ScoreBig offers more than just tickets to professional sporting events too. The site also boast tickets for concerts, attractions, theater events, and virtually any live sporting event you can think of.With that said, there was once a time when I was skeptical about the whole idea of literally naming your price for seats. I mean, we've always been told that, "if it's too good to be true, it probably is." Well, there may be an exception with ScoreBig. I've personally used the site multiple times to purchase tickets for MLB games and I've been satisfied every single time.Here's a brief breakdown on how the process works:Once you find the game and seat area you want, ScoreBig will prompt you to enter the number of tickets you need and an offer per ticket. One feature I found to be pretty helpful was the "Offer Success Potential" bar located below the price offer box. It ranges from red to green depending on how likely it thinks your offer will accepted. If you put in a $1 offer for great seats, expect your odds of getting them to be low. But rest assured you always have a chance to snag tickets below the price you would pay through the box office.Once you're happy with your offer, ScoreBig walks you through a few more steps before letting you know whether or not your offer has been accepted. One of the great things about ScoreBig is it immediately rejects or accepts your offer. So, there's little suspense or drama in that respect. If your offer is rejected, ScoreBig will automatically try and suggest another deal for you. If your offer is accepted, you will receive a confirmation landing page and then an email letting you know that your offer has been approved, and that you will receive your tickets shortly. It's as easy as that, folks.If you haven't already, I'd recommend giving ScoreBig.com a try when purchasing tickets for an upcoming event, regardless of whether it's for a Reds game or not. The allure of no fees and being able to pick your price is such a great concept for business. Let me know what you think!
