Yesterday, I told you about a resource where you could find donated tickets for free. But what if they don’t have what you are looking for? Then, I suggest you check out FNG Tickets. FNG Tickets is a veteran-owned business (with that name, how could it not be?) which offers tickets to sporting events, concerts, theater events, and events in Las Vegas and on Broadway.
The site itself is sparse, basically a large cartoon grunt and the ticket category tabs, so it is easy to navigate. Click on the category you want, then the event you want (the list is a bit of an eye chart but it’s alphabetical so, if you know what you are looking for, it’s easy enough to find), then on the date/venue you are looking for.
One you’ve made your choices, you’ll see a screen with the venue’s floorplan on the right. On the left will be listed the tickets available and their details – section, row, cost, and number of tickets left for each row/section. Click the “buy” button for the ticket you want. Then, on the next screen, select how many tickets you want, delivery method (options include standard or express shipping and, in some cases, will call and instant e-mail delivery), and your payment method.
At this point, you will have to check a button saying you’ve read the policies. (You can also read them by clicking on the teeny, tiny “policies” button at the top of the homepage.) I recommend reading them, if only because that’s where it tells you that the tickets are nonrefundable and why it’s a bad idea to pay for the tickets using a debit card.
I found the site easy to navigate. I haven’t purchased any tickets from them, so I can’t speak to how the purchasing/delivery part works. However, I did do a little price comparison, since FNG claims to have the lowest ticket prices “PERIOD!” I found tickets for some events to be cheaper at Ticketmaster. However, there were some events that Ticketmaster said it had no available tickets for and FNG did. So, as with everything, it pays to do your research.
Also, if you read yesterday’s post and signed up for Vet Tix, you can find a special code to help you save an additional 5% at FNG Tickets.
