Tips for Buying Cheap NFL Football Tickets
1) Don't Pay Service Fees
Honestly, buying football tickets has changed dramatically in the last five to ten years. What used to be a hard ticket to get your hands on has now become widely available to the masses in a very transparent matter. For example, here on TickPick, the price you see is the price you pay. Unlike every other NFL ticket exchange / ticket marketplace, Tickpick shows all-in prices. And not only do we show all-in prices, but we also have no service fees on our football tickets. What this means for you is that we guarantee we have the most affordable NFL tickets available.
How do we do it? Simple, we only charge sellers a modest 10% commission, whereas most other ticket sites charge sellers 10% on top of hidden buyer fees of 15%. So, if you're ever comparing football ticket prices, make sure to pay attention at the final checkout page, which is where other sites tack on their additional 10-20% hidden service fee. TickPick was founded back in 2011, and the cost to create and run an online business is cheaper than it's ever been and thus has made it easier than ever to accomplish our mission: to create a more efficient and transparent ticket industry; and in simpler terms, to make it super easy to buy the best and most affordable NFL tickets.
2) Best Time to Buy NFL Tickets
Trying to time the market to make sure you buy NFL tickets at the cheapest prices is near impossible, but there are a couple things one can do to minimize costs.
When the NFL schedule is first announced in the spring, we typically see prices at their highest they'll be. You can try to jump the gun and buy them immediately, but we find that waiting is the best option. About one-to-two months in advance of the season, the number of available tickets from which to choose peaks and prices will typically normalize, so if you're making big plans to take the family or clients to a game, this is a great time to buy tickets.
If you do wait until the season starts and your team is playing great, you can certainly expect prices to increase and vice versa if the team is struggling. In general, roughly 75% of NFL tickets decrease in price as you get closer to game day. A week-to-two weeks in advance of the game will offer enough ticket inventory and ample time to have your tickets delivered. It's possible that the longer you wait, the more likely you'll be able to get NFL tickets at a more moderate price, but we recommend buying tickets at least one-to-four days in advance.
3) Where you Should Sit at an NFL Game
Most NFL fans know that the best seats in the house are the ones closest to the 50-yard line. Those seats will also be the most expensive, so when you're browsing NFL tickets, be sure to take advantage of TickPick's Score Report, which will show you where the best deals are. If you're on a budget, but still want to sit in the lower level, the seats in the end zones will be your best bet. Typically, the most inexpensive seats for any NFL game are in the corners and end zones in the upper levels. If you're looking for tickets in the upper levels, try to sit in as low of a row as possible within your budget. The difference in rows will be felt more in the upper level than it would in the lower level.
4) Discount NFL Tickets
The idea of dicsount NFL football tickets doesn't really exist. Unlike most sports, the majority of football games sell out and the teams have no reason to sell tickets at a discount. However, ticket sites like TickPick do run promotions to get new users, and we guarantee that in conjunction with our No Fee tickets and our $10 off discount (for new customers), we offer the cheapest nfl tickets on the web.

5) Bid On NFL Tickets
If you are looking at football ticket prices and they are just too expensive then TickPick's bidding platform is the perfect product for you. Most people don't really realize this, but ticket prices are constantly changing. So let's say you are looking at Super Bowl tickets
, and the cheapest price is $2,000, using the bidding platform you can set a bid for $1,500 on specific seats you are interested in. Then if a seller lowers their prices to $1,500, you'd be the first person to get that great deal. You can find out more on how to bid on nfl tickets here
6) Last Minute NFL Tickets
Buying last minute NFL tickets is easier than ever now, especially when using TickPick's app. Now for the most part, most NFL stadiums allow fans to enter the venue with mobile entry. In theory this means you can buy tickets right outside the stadium and than show your phone to get in. Although this is possible, we do recommend trying to buy your tickets a little in advance. The reason for this is because the number of tickets to choose from significantly decreases as the event approaches.
7) Trust and Authentic Football Tickets
This goes without saying, but it's obviously important to trust the source of where you are getting tickets. If you are looking at tickets on craigslist and it seems to good to be true, that's because it is too good to be true. Although buying NFL tickets on the cheap is important, it's even more important to get authentic tickets. TickPick has a 100% BuyerTrust Guarantee
, and ensures every ticket is authentic.
