Planning a Trip to the Super Bowl? Don’t be Penalized by Ticket Scammers!

football field 150x150 Planning a Trip to the Super Bowl? Don’t be Penalized by Ticket Scammers!If you love football and are planning a trip to the big game, don’t become the victim of a scam when looking to score a Super Bowl XLVI game ticket. As the Super Bowl is one of the biggest sporting events of the year, fans can expect to pay a premium for their seats, anywhere from $2,000-$15,000! Follow your BBB’s tips to avoid being ripped-off:

  • Take the time to properly research and compare tickets. Visit www.bbb.org and search Business Reviews to find a trustworthy supplier or reseller.
  • Ask a ticket broker specific questions regarding the terms of the transaction. (whether tickets are guaranteed, how they will be sent, timeframe for delivery, refund, rescheduling and cancellation policies)
  • Think twice about purchasing tickets from internet sites that are not secure, lack a privacy policy, fail to disclose their refund, rescheduling and cancellation policies, do not provide a telephone number and fixed place of business or insist on cash payments.
  • Verify your seat location on a seating chart to avoid being misled into purchasing obstructed view seats or seats that don’t exist.
  • Pay with a credit card or third party processor, such as PayPal, which offers additional protection and allows you to track our purchase.
