Today’s side deal is your ticket to tickets: for $25, you 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 ask how you got those discounted tickets, you can tell them, “I know a guy...” in a sly voice that implies he might be a mafioso or Dracula, though 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 toward this season's Rochester Red Wings road games, if only to gain access to delicious concession 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 such as A Chorus Line, Young Frankenstein, Lion King, and a proposed Thespian Wars show in which 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 Rochester area either: savedseats.com 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 Wicked, Mamma Mia!, and Jersey Boys, as well as the off-off-Broadway flops Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Napping and Godot's Here, but He Looks Disinterested.
This deal expires in one year.
