    Several (maybe all) of the show tickets available through the Mlife site have a service charge ($11.99 or more per ticket for the shows I was looking at). Is there any way to avoid this fee? Does it matter if I order by phone?

    Also, is the Mlife discount a flat amount, regardless of card tier?

    Not sure, but I am thinking the service charge if part of the ticketmaster kingdom.

    There's a bunch of taxes and fees tacked on. I think the only way you could avoid one of the processing fees would be to purchase in person at the box office. It could vary slightly depending on the specific act.

    I don't believe they apply any tier discount to any shows. Everybody gets the same discount on an offer.

    Do you think if I purchased directly at the hotel box office I could still apply rate offers as well?

    Yes, I think you should be able to, I don't see any reason why not. I've never bought them in person at the box office, but I have called the box office phone numbers (it was an MGM Resorts phone number, not Ticketmaster, etc) a couple of times, and they applied a 50% Travelzoo code in one instance and I forget what the other was, some other discount code, possibly a Cirque code. Calling probably gets you into a call center as opposed to the actual physical box office/desk in a hotel, but I imagine they work off the same system.
