    I use Stubhub a ton here in the Northeast to purchase sports and show tickets. I know they have a ton of surcharges, but I often can still find a great deal. I was shocked to see how horrible the site is for anything Las Vegas. Ticket prices on there are ridiculous and I can definitely find better bargains elsewhere. Is there another site similar to Stubhub that people use in that area to sell tickets that suddenly they can't use?

    Thanks!

    Not really, craigslist I guess. Yea I've found the same thing. I think most people don't buy tickets that much in advance... so there wouldn't be a ton to resell. Also they don't usually have e-tickets, which is mainly how stubhub deals tickets out.

    *Almost* every show in Vegas is heavily discounted anyways, I don't feel like I need something like stubhub... (except for a concert maybe)

    nope and stubhub is great for vegas u have to rember most people purchase shows for vegas when there out there so its a game of chicken you deal will come at the last minute, also there are so many casino comps, local comps and half price deals groupon, living social that most brookers dont buy for vegas.

    most people either dont pay for tickets or pay usualy 40 percent off

    Yea not sure of the last time I paid full price for anything except Britney.

    You can't play chicken when there is no e-tickets though.

    yup in fact the cheapest ticket for gaga last friday were hard tickets , they were pick up , they were down to 40$ and never sold

    stub hub has alot of places for pickup and if its a major event they actualy rent hotels to do pickups as a will call office.

    if its a eticket they dont have to its loaded in there sytem but if its a psyhiscal hard ticket its actualy in there office for pick up.

    brokers from all over send them there tickets to sell.
