    StubHub NBA 10% Off Scam

    This one is fucking amazing...

    So looking for Knicks tickets for me and a buddy and when I go to the stubhub website I see that they're offering 10% off an order when you buy on the app...I think, 'great' since I was looking to get $300-400 tickets that'd be a nice $60-80 back to me...

    so I look and find some tickets that are at midcourt for $341 each...

    so go on the app and search for my tickets and the tickets that I was looking at on the website were $371 on the app...and all the other tickets in that section were roughly 10ish% more than what they are listed for on the website...

    I tried to click on those seats in both the app and website, but for some reason the seat numbers didn't come up on the app...so I clicked on the row 17 seats on both the website and app and sure enough they were a match...so on the website the final price is $1050 or so and on the app the final price is $1125 or so...

    good job with the bait and switch stubhub...guess i'll be using vivid seats from now on...

    That's awful, and borderline illegal.

    Stubhub is pretty reputable, so this surprises me.

    Next time this happens, call them up and get a manager on the phone. They will probably honor the real 10%.

    really surprised this isn't illegal...I mean that's total bullshit to mark up prices like that...

    also haven't used stubhub in awhile, but last time I did they were doing all in prices (fees included) on the ticket prices they showed...on these tickets fees aren't included so that was another nice sticker shock...

    They did away with that awhile ago. First they showed without fees, then they showed with fees, now they're back to without fees again.

    However, you can get the actual price by just going into the Filters menu and selecting the option to show with fees. That's what I always do.
