    Default Red Box - Beginning To Sell "Event Tickets" For $1.00 Service Fee

    So I thought this was somewhat interesting. A buddy snapped this photo at a local Red Box.

    I wouldn't think twice but after reading the $1.00 Fee (Really) phrase - it caught my attention.

    Looked a little further and found that some events are now up @ http://tickets.redbox.com/ (not the greatest selection).

    I believe that Red Box has the locations, logistics, range of recipients who would go to events, etc., to step into a huge playing field where Ticketmaster dominates the market. Hopefully, maybe, one day, you know?!

    $1.00 fee (Really)

    A dollar? All they need is a wide range of shows. I'd totally buy tickets there.

    Shit, they could charge 5 and they'd have my money. I'm not anti-corporation/capitalism but TicketMaster is a scam.

    Capitalism is one thing, greed is another.

    Don't get too excited yet. I notice they are selling NASCAR tickets. A ticket for a race in Phoenix costs 31.88 with Red Box (plus $1?), while at the raceway site, it is $20 plus $7 for printing. (Better deal at NASCAR site)

    However, a ticket for race qualifying in Fontana costs 20.00 with Red Box (plus $1?), while at the raceway site, it is $20 plus shipping. (Better deal at Red Box).

    Note that both are GA events.

    So, compare prices before buying.

    Sometimes it is worth the extra for a hard ticket

    I was noticing that as well. In the long run though, I'm hoping this becomes one of the very few exceptions where a business goes from an online resource to a brick and mortar establishment. For example where most stores only had either in store or online now it is more prevalent to have "buy online, pick up in store". That is until shipping companies can same-day everything.

    I agree. When I purchased my NASCAR tickets for Phoenix a while back, I paid $10 for mail, instead of $7 for print at home.
