I love watching sports. The energy, the thrill, just everything about it excites me. I love watching hockey, basketball, baseball – anything. Being a current student with no full-time job, I am not eager to buy tickets at full price. If there’s a way to buy tickets at a cheaper price, I’ll take it. As in $1 cheap.
To buy tickets for $1, you have to use third-party sites. I know it seems sketchy at first glance, but trust when I say that these sites are usually 95% reliable. The sites I trust are VividSeats, SeatGeek, and StubHub. Please note that none of the sites mentioned have reached out to me or asked me to mention them in any way.
The first thing you need to do to score $1 tickets is to buy tickets on an “off day.” An off day would be a game on a Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday. The reason for this is these days are generally when people have work, school, and other commitments. Note that the seats won’t be the best, but I mean for $1, what more can you ask? Buying $1 tickets on a Friday though will get you seats far up in the 500s, and only if you’re lucky.
The second thing you need to score $1 tickets in seats that don’t suck is to use a coupon code. This works on a first time purchase only. I’m talking seats in the 100s to 200s. Yup! You heard me right! It IS possible to score good seats for $1 tickets apiece. Now, how was I able to do this, you ask?
I used a third party platform and the site I used was SeatGeek. I used a YouTuber by the name of Monica Church’s coupon code, “MONICA.” I simply typed it in and got a $20 voucher. I bought tickets to a Blue Jays game on a Tuesday and was able to get seats in the 200s. What a deal! The tickets were originally $11 each (already cheap enough) but with the code, managed to get it down to $1.
So that’s how I managed to buy cheap MLB tickets! I would definitely recommend trying this out the next time you’re planning on watching a baseball game, and even though you may not get it for $1, you’d still be saving quite a bit of money.
