Today’s Groupon is your ticket to tickets: for $25, you’ll get $50 to spend toward any purchase on savedseats.com. This deal also includes 10% off all future purchases made through savedseats.com for a year, but does not cover service fees and shipping and handling. From now on, when friends asks how you got those discounted tickets, you can tell them, “I know a guy...” in a sly voice to imply that he might be a Mafioso or dracula, when he is, in fact, a B2B collaboration between websites.
This is one of the most versatile Groupons you can get: it’s good for thousands of events, many of which haven’t yet breached the choppy waters of the space-time continuum. Sports nuts can choose to use their tickets towards Celtics, Bruins, Red Sox, and Patriots games, if only to gain access to delicious ballpark nachos until finally cracking the recipe; front rows, back rows, middle rows are all yours for the taking. If you prefer a more elegant show, check out upcoming theater events: current offerings include The Nutcracker, Cats, Grease, Blue Man Group, and a proposed Thespian Wars show where the casts of all rumble in the ultimate battle for stage dominance (coming in 2011). Check specific shows for prices and availability. You can also pick up concert tickets for artists spanning all genres. Don’t think you’re limited to tickets in the Boston area either: Saved Seats gets around like the Tooth Fairy stapled to Rudolph.
If you plan on traveling or want to make plans to travel, step outside the city's limits with tickets in hand; your Groupon is valid for any purchase on the site. Get cheap seats for a Broadway show, including Rent, Mamma Mia!, or The Lion King. Grab some rival Yankee tickets for the sole purpose of booing the whole time and garnering the proximity needed to place more potent hexes.
Note: This deal expires in one year.
Saving a seat in real life can be difficult for meek individuals who aren’t comfortable decking a pushy stranger and ending up on an off-duty police officer’s camera phone. It’s much easier to fend off would-be seat poachers with one of our surefire seat-saving excuses:
- “Sorry, this is my government-mandated pyrokinesis buffer.”
- “Yes, this seat is available…to anyone immune to my raging Disease Pox.”
- “Pleased to meet you! My name is Mr. Strangergrab, but all my friends call me Fartley.”
- “I’m sorry, this seat is taken by my best friend, the bad guy from Terminator 2. Oh, here he is now.” (Note: requires access to Robert Patrick or serviceable 1992-era look-alike.)
- “Sorry about all the afterbirth. Are you interested in a puppy?”
