    Hi! Assuming I want to purchase tickets in advance for shows, what sites have the best prices? I have noticed some pricing differences between Vegas.com and Tickemaster. I'm leaning toward Absinthe, based on recommendations here, but "O" is also in the running. Thanks!

    There is no one best site. Vegas.com is one. Las Vegas Advisors website has a nice list of various coupons/promotions for shows. Groupon sometimes has shows. Travelzoo. GoldStar. BestofVegas. And check the casinos own website (which usually, but not always, use Ticketmaster). Not only will ticket prices vary but the various fees/surcharges will vary as well. The initial price you see won't include the fees. If you are willing to wait until last minute the Tix4Tonight booths SOMETIMES have the best deals on tickets. Many like to have their plans made and tickets bought in advance so use all of the sites mentioned (and I"m sure I'm forgetting some). For one show one particular site might yield the best price and for another show it might be another site.

    Some sites will allow you to print your tickets at home (or use your phone), others will provide a voucher that you use at the box office.

    "O" does not run specials or discounts that often - so probably not.

    They sometimes have people giving out coupons near the ABS ticket booth.

    Absinthe they are usually handing out $20 coupons by the box office but you can (USUALLY) get the same deal online. But that's the only discounts I've seen on that show. Great show though, don't sweat the cost.

    The wife bought our tickets for Celine and Beatles Love right through their sites - everyone else was within $10 or so of the site price.

    If you or anyone your traveling with happens to be a college student / post grad, etc... some have a student discount if your looking to try to save some money. We got our Love tickets last time with her college ID and saved $30 or $40 a ticket I think? Just FYI.

    We used Tix4Tonight last time also for a show (don't remember which one) - didn't have a problem with them.

    The last couple of times I booked Love tickets I got a nice break on the price by buying through my MLife account.

    Best of Vegas came up at the best deal, closely followed by Vegas.com for Absinthe tickets. Thanks for the suggestions.
