A Guide to Buying Super Bowl Tickets | When to Buy Super Bowl Tickets


Howdy, my name is Brett, one of the Founders of TickPick, and I want to take a second to tell you how this blog post started.

Obviously as an owner and founder of a ticket marketplace, I have had a lot of friends and family reach out to me for advice. I kept writing the same email, telling everyone to hold off on buying Super Bowl tickets. There’s good reason for this: prices will continue to decrease as the event gets closer. I started sending out a daily update on Super Bowl tickets to one family member and one friend, that list has now grown to 500 people

Super Bowl Ticket Prices 2015

Now in our second year, we will once again be sending out weekly and then daily updates as the Super Bowl draws closer.

Below is our first update on Super Bowl Tickets for 2015, with that said, right now, I think it’s most helpful to look at how things progressed in 2014. Take a look at the daily snapshot down below, it’s very telling.

Please note it is important to recognize that every year is different, it is possible for prices to increase as the event approaches, but in general we tend to see prices decrease as the event nears.

If you have any questions about Super Bowl tickets please email us at [email protected] or call us at 845-538-4567.

2014 Super Bowl Ticket Prices

I am not saying to wait till day of but at a minimum wait until the week of (and of course let’s monitor tickets on a regular basis). Here’s a blog that we wrote that has some helpful information on Current & Historical Super Bowl ticket prices (if you are not interested, you don’t need to read it…):

Ask in the comments if you have any other specific questions and I look forward to continuing to help you.

The price for the best seat in the house is still high, nearly $15,000 a ticket, but that, my friends, is misleading. Notice here that the price for the 2nd best seat in the house is nearly half that of the ticket shown above.

The 2nd Best Seats

“Good Deal” Grade: D-

Location: Section 139, Row 8

Seating Quality: 5/5

Quantity: 2 OR 4

Price: $7590

As you can see, the prices for the cheapest seats are plummeting, and are rapidly reaching our expected price-floor of $1,500 a ticket. The price for the best deal in the house jumped 7.2%, but is almost assuredly going to come down over the weekend. Speaking of the weekend, we’ll keep these updates coming Saturday and Sunday, so prepare yourself for some more good ol’ fashioned Super Bowl ticket prices. We like to think they’re almost as good as the commercials.

Beautiful weather we’re having here in the Tri-State Area, and to celebrate, we thought we’d try something a little different. Instead of just showing you the best deal, the best seats, and the cheapest tickets, we’re giving you that on top of the best deal for every seat rating. That’s right, ladies and gentlemen, you get seven ticket listings for the price of three. If only we could do so well for the actual Super Bowl! The listing highlighted in orange is our best deal overall.

Suite-tastic

Now I know the weather has been gorgeous lately, but just in case you were thinking about oh . . . I don’t know, watching the game from a weather-protected room with an award-winning wine selection and fireside dining, you should know that there are some unlisted Super Bowl Suite tickets up for grabs. Six standing room passes for $15,000 each and four seats for $25,000 each. In the words of our friendly ticket broker, these tickets are “super expensive, but nobody has [them].” Reply to this email if you’re interested, and check out our blog post on Super Bowl Luxury Suites to learn more.

Super Bowl Ticket Update #4 – January 26th, 2014

One week to go. Are you ready?

7 days until the Super Bowl.
Today was a dream for ticket buyers everywhere. Why? Over 2,000 extra Super Bowl tickets flooded the market, slashing prices. Not taking into account the very best tickets, which skyrocketed 19% and the very cheapest, which more or less stayed at their $1500 level, the price of every ticket in this email fell by a significant amount. Not to mention the extra surprise for you that we have listed down at the bottom. Let’s just say that if you’re looking for Super Bowl Ticket Deals, today’s your lucky day.

5,600 tickets are left. Over 400 have sold in the last 24 hours.

6 days until the Super Bowl.

If you’re thinking about buying or bidding on Super Bowl Tickets, now is the time. A ticket for $1,430 was nabbed before I could get this email out, a seller just hit a bid for $1,250, and the tickets accidentally listed at $1,000 less than their original asking price are gone. The past couple of days have been clear: Once a ticket sinks below $1,500, it gets nabbed immediately. If you’re still not 100% happy with the prices you see here, consider placing a bid. Even the lowest ones are getting hit.

Hedge Your Bets . . .

While we’re hesitant to say that Super Bowl Ticket prices are going to skyrocket like some journalists are suggesting, we did stumble on a very good article by Forbes on why Super Bowl Ticket prices may very well increase in the upcoming days.

Super Bowl Ticket Update #6 – January 27th, 2014 (2nd update of the day)

It’s a madhouse over here.

5 days until the Super Bowl.
Yesterday got messy. These emails only go out to 100 people, yet 10 people purchased Super Bowl tickets following our last email. On top of that, roughly 700 Super Bowl tickets have been purchased across multiple ticket sites in the last 24 hours. This caused havoc for ticket brokers. Many brokers sold the same tickets twice within a few seconds of each other, leaving them unable to fulfill orders.
This has created upward pressure on ticket prices. We expect this momentum to last until Thursday, and after that it’s a 50/50 shot what will happen. If you are risk taker, we presume you won’t settle today, but if you are risk averse, prices really haven’t gone up all that much and we would suggest you lock up your tickets today.
