While people usually view ticket brokers as the devil since the prices are so high, Ticketmaster actually does a really decent job of helping us save some money along the way, at least on the base-price of the tickets. Good luck with those fees! Why do they always sneak up on us like those airline fees do?! And why are they so high?! Overall, we’ve found that Ticketmaster is always running some kind of sale or short-term deal. We’ve been successful at finding at least 2-to-3 active promo codes each month that help us save some cash on a variety of events. We may not always get front-row deals but, hey, every little bit counts. If you’re looking for overall sales at Ticketmaster, this is the best place to start.
Where You Can Enter Your Code
We’re not going to lie to you, finding where you can test out your promo code at Ticketmaster isn’t really the easiest. We actually signed up for an account, made it to the final part in the checkout process and still didn’t see where we could add our code. That’s the bad news. The good news is that it’s actually insanely easy once you find it. And the best part? You don’t have to sign up, be logged in, or even add your tickets to your cart to see if your code is active and working! What’s better than that? Check out the steps below on how to test yours out.
Once you’ve chosen the concert, event, show (etc, etc) you’re interested in going to, directly to the right of the price slider you’ll see the box titled “Enter Offer Code” with a little lock button next to it. That’s your promo code box! You can actually test out your code even before you select your tickets! What’s better than that?! While you may think the promo code box is in plain site, like we said, we’re used to going through the checkout process to add ours. Don’t make the same mistake we did! If your code works, they’ll let you know. If it doesn’t you’ll get a message to let you know to try it again.

So Many Questions, So Little Time
When purchasing tickets online, we always have a ton of questions. Hopefully we’ve answered for you (above) how to save on your tickets when buying online. Here are more common questions people have.
What the Deal is With Presale Tickets and How You Can Get Your Hands on Them
Everyone wants to get their hands on presale tickets. At Ticketmaster they presale tickets refer to a set of tickets set aside and made available to a certain groups of people before they’re made available to the general buying public. Usually, these kind of tickets are for specific credit-card holders, people with VIP status, radio station presale members, and a variety of others. Regardless of the presale, one thing is for sure, you’ll need a specific code to unlock these special early-access deals.
How to Get a Code for Presale Tickets
This, for sure, isn’t the easiest to find online. To be honest, most likely, you won’t end up stumbling across a password. These passwords are usually reserved for fans with specific credit cards where this is one of the perks, etc. If you’re lucky enough to get a password please note that this doesn’t guarantee you’ll get your tickets at Ticketmaster. If simply gives you the chance to gain access to tickets before the general public. Here are some additional ways to increase the chances you could get a passcode:
- Sign Up for Ticketmaster Presale: Once you sign up, ‘favorite’ your favorite bands, artists, teams, etc and you can then get emails alerting you of possible presale deals.
- Sign Up at LiveNation: You can also sign up at LiveNation here. You’ll get alerts about presale tickets as well. Why not increase those chances!?
- Follow Your Favorites on Social Media: When you follow your favorite bands, artists, entertainers, teams and more on social media outlets like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Snap you’ll sometimes notice they’ll share with you the special password for their show or event.
- Check With Your Credit Card Company: Some credit card companies have perks for their loyal and valued customers in which they’ll give you presale early access codes just for having their card. We’ve seen this most recently with Chase, but also with Amex, and Citibank. If you’re a big concert or event goer, it may make total sense to go with one of these cards to help increase your chances.
It May Actually Cheaper to Buy Your Tickets Direct from the Box Office Instead of Ticketmaster?
We know you’re here to find all the ways to score tickets for cheap at Ticketmaster but, truth be told, in some case it actually may be cheaper just to purchase them direct from the box office. You may not be able to get presale access there and if your venue doesn’t have their own box office you’re, of course, out of luck. However, if there is a box office we always recommend calling them first. If you head down there to score some tickets, in most cases you’ll be able to save by not having to pay that insane service fee that places like Ticketmaster charges. We know it’s the cost of doing business but still, it hurts!
What If You Have Tickets With Someone Else’s Name On Them?
We made this rookie mistake where we freaked out when we bought our tickets online and then printed them out at home only to see someone else’s name on them. Of course we panicked and contacted Ticketmaster directly. They calmed us down by letting us know that it’s totally common and we’ll have no problem using them when entering the event. Apparently we purchased the tickets that someone else re-sold. So the bad news is that we probably spent even more than we should have, but the good news is that having that persons name on the ticket and not ours is totally fine.
