With constant reminders that the credit crunch is upon us it’s always refreshing to hear of ways to save time and money. Ticket-Text.com has come up with an ingenious plan to do just that – setting out to save you pounds.
Here’s the deal.
Log onto Ticket-Text.com, make your selection and pay via credit card; they will then send your event tickets directly to your mobile phone as a 2d barcode and email a print-at-home version, cutting out unnecessary postage & packing fees. On arrival at your choice venue, show your mobile screen which will be scanned, cutting down on queuing time at the box office.
Don’t panic if you are anything like me and are prone to forgetting your phone at home, you can use your print out instead – just don’t forget that.
This service is set to revolutionise the way in which we buy and receive event tickets, offering consumers choice and savings.
When a direct price comparison is carried out the savings are clear:
|Grandmaster Flash – Jazz Cafe||£32.80||–||£35.60||£2.80|
|Chris Rock – Hammersmith Apollo||£44.00||£50.50||£50.50||£6.50|
This may not seem like a big saving but if you are a regular concert or theatre goer ever penny counts and you could use the difference to buy yourself an extra pint, or help towards the taxi home.
Mark McLaughlin, CEO of Ticket-Text.com, commented, “For too long the major ticketing agencies have had consumers over a barrel, ripping them off with high postage and packaging on top of their booking fee, sometimes even when simply providing an e-ticket. This isn’t fair to consumers and can send the cost of live music and sporting events through the roof. During these tough economic times it’s more important than ever for people to let their hair down and enjoy themselves. At Ticket-Text.com we are committed to offering value for money, often saving people enough to buy themselves a pint when they get to the event!”
This service is great as it does not just extend to buying tickets for your favourite music gig but also selected football matches, theatres, arts events etc.
