From NESN:

The success that Boston sports teams have enjoyed in recent years has had the unfortunate effect of driving up ticket prices a bit. The Philadelphia 76ers do not have that problem, as one Sixers fan proved Wednesday night.

The fan, who goes by the Twitter handle @mleif, purchased a full row at the Wells Fargo Center — that’s 18 tickets — for just $0.04 cents per seat on StubHub. He did get hit with a few service charges, but the whole bill still came out to under 11 dollars. That’s a good thing for this fan, since 17 of those seats remained unoccupied during the Sixers’ 88-69 loss to the Pacers.

Check out the ultimate example of bargain shopping in the tweets below:
