Rangers Ticketexchange site

Has Ticketmaster started adding a huge mark-up to whatever the season holders are selling tickets for? Or are people actually selling $105 per ticket in the 400s (the cheapest ones available) to a Rangers/Islanders game at the end of the month?

Hell I usually get tix in the 100s/200s for 150ish a pop this seems kind of off. Come to think of it I've gotten 400s cheaper from scalpers when the game was sold out.

I believe they add a 15% surcharge to whatever price a seller lists his/her tickets at. Then they also take 5% of the sellers price as well. So if a ticket is listed for $150 that's because the seller is asking $130 for it.

That game seems to be the biggest selling game of the year. Luckily for me, I acquired tickets and can't wait to be there. That's going to be a great game.

If you can get tickets for face anywhere, consider yourself damn lucky. Even if you get club gold for face, it's better to pay that and sit in great seats then pay a little less to sit in the 400's.

I bought tickets to a Pens @ Bruins game for my gf and everything was super expensive. I ended up having to spend 125 per ticket for $30 face value seats. Its outrageous.

Yup, despite the low demand in general this was the one date I was constantly getting emails about. I should have held out for more. lol

It seems like the demand for tickets has really picked up in the past 2 weeks. Except for the coyotes game which I couldn,t make due to my work party I have recieved about 10 different e-mails inquiring about various games. That is not counting about 20 a piece for the Lightning and Islanders game. I think that fans would rather pay $60-$75 to sit in good seats in the 300,s than the $100 overpriced crap behind the nets in the $200,s that the Rangers keep pushing (ie.Holiday Packs)

Absolutely, nice 300s are way better than 200's on the bad end. And I have noticed the demand picking up. This generally happens just before the Holidays. And it's about time...nice to finally move some extra tickets after a very slow start to the year.
