    Hey guys, I want to go to the opener again this year, and want to get tickets early to avoid paying a 200% upcharge on the resell.

    My question is what is the best way? They go on sale Fri at 10am, but it looks like I need to have an account to order from, does anyone know how to create one (I dont see anything that says sign up) or what methods you have used before to order tickets at face value. Should I go the old fashioned route and call them?

    Thanks in advance for any input.

    Buy season tickets by getting a seat license. That's about the only way you are going to get tix at face value as long as we don't suck, horribly.

    I have tried to use my friends account (season ticket holder) and they still sell out before I can buy them. Oh, and the site will probably crash

    Lol. I feel and respect any pain you're feeling but you're in the same single game ticket boat as any other non season ticket holder. Supply and demand. Limited supply. And great demand that both innocently and intentionally exploits the supply. Economics can be a real you-know-what sometimes.

    I was hoping to get some tickets on the primary market as well. What a waste of money to have to buy them on the secondary market.

    I was going to shoot for the Packers game but I would suspect that game to be one of the more popular games of the season due to the playoff rematch and the Packers fan base. I believe it might be best to try my luck with the LA Rams if I'm going to roll the dice.

    Try scouring the parking lot in the late fourth quarter.

    I'm a STH and I will probably sell mine for that game for about $200 ea.
    I could probably get more than that as we get closer.
    Face Value is $79 but I add the cost of Pre-Season tickets since I have to sell those for $20 each, if I am able to sell them. That brings them to approximately $90 Face Value

    I'm looking at tickets for the Falcons game. My wife isn't going to be happy about this.

    I'm guessing the Falcons have already sold this game out and secondary is the only way to go.
    For two very average seats I'm looking at 700$. Lucky I'm rich!

    Sacrifices will be made. "Sorry son Disney World caught fire.!" "We can't go"

    You can wait till the last minute but don't wait too long.

    I went to the NYG game in New Jersey last season and the week of the game, prices dropped but the morning of the game, the prices dropped substantially but my friend and I still waited it out hoping to get the best deal. Two hours before the game the market regained traction and we had to pay 400 dollars a piece in the parking lot on stub hub. Seats were very good but still it's pretty crazy considering your living room is really the best seat in the house.

    Yes. I know my living room is better.

    I've already paid for my hotel. So there's no turning back. I will wait it out. Maybe until game morning or Saturday night unless I see some decent ones pop up.
    Guess I'll be checking StubHub everyday for the next 5-6 months.

    Thanks for the advice. I wondered how it worked waiting for NFL tickets. I've done that with the NBA before.

    "Good" seats at "face value" I don't see that as anywhere near the norm.

    I don't think you're ever going to get Cowboys tickets for "face value" unless you're a season ticket holder, or a season ticket holder is nice enough to hook you up. I've paid over $200 for every Cowboys game I've ever gone to since the 90's.... Texas Stadium, Cowboys Stadium, even in Baltimore. I usually expect to pay $200 - $250 per ticket, for seats in the upper level, between the 20 yard lines. If you want cheaper than that, and don't want a party pass, you're gonna have to sit in the end zone or in a corner.

    Actually, I don't really feel sorry for people who don't have season tickets. If it costs you three times face value for a seat, that's what it costs. You pay it one time, but you pick where, and when, and who they are playing, and how it fits into your schedule.

    As a season ticket holder you don't know who we will play, and when, and what will be going on in your life outside of the football world when the game is played, you don't HAVE to buy all of the preseason games, and we won't know if the Cowboys will be good or not since we are paying in advance. You can decide, in advance, if Thanksgiving is important to your family, since the Cowboys play at home every Thanksgiving.

    This isn't a rant against no-season ticket holders, and I'm not disappointed I am a season ticket holder. But its the cost of going to a game, snowflakes.

    Im a STH and will also sell all of my tickets, as I live in Germany. My tix are 40 yard line 400 section and they normally go for about 150-200 each.

    BTW I will caution everyone that when I wanted to buy extra tickets on the STH presale for the playoff game, the ticket rep told me the stadium is 99% sold out to season ticket holders. It sounded to be to be BS, but that could explain the low inventory of single game tickets.

    Yes. The stadium is mostly sold out, and the remaining tickets aren't very good seats. Just FYI.

    And you probably won't even be able to find 2 seats together.

    Huh? Why do you have season tickets if you live in Germany? Does anyone who I see posting as a season ticket holder actually attend the games?

    I don't get it.
