Money Monitor: How to get concert tickets for a better price

Anyone who's been to a concert recently is well aware that there's no such thing as cheap seats anymore. But, music fans looking for a break do have a few options. Experts say srtists are increasingly using "dynamic pricing," in which ticket and fee prices adjust over time based on demand. Under this pricing model, the initial price may not be the lowest price. Fan club members often get access to ticket presales and promotions or discounts for upcoming shows. Many companies such as banks, telcos or credit card providers offer exclusive or discounted event tickets, including concerts, in a bid to bring in new clients. Prices for concert tickets vary between venues for reasons including fees, location and demand. Purchasing tickets online may be more convenient, but that ease can come with extra fees, such as a charge to print those tickets at home If you decide to take the resale route, it's in your best interest to meet the ticket seller at the venue beforehand to verify the tickets before entry. Wait last minute and buy tickets within minutes of the start time, or even after. The value of the tickets plummets once the event has started. Radio stations and other media outlets often give concert tickets away in contests, and the pool of entries is smaller than one would think.
