    I'm a season ticket holder and I can tell you that your best bet would be craigslist if you wait until the week of the game. However, if you are looking at spending a total of $200 you are going to have a hard time finding tickets. The cheapest seats in the house besides the standing ones are $94 a seat face value and NOBODY will sell them for face value. If you are talking $200 a ticket, then you can find something.

    If you can't wait until the week of the game then ebay or stubhub would be your best bet. Be careful on stubhub because they have a ton of fees at the end of the transaction.

    Look at Stubhub.com or nflticketexchange.com, which is ticket master. Craiglist too.
    I have season tickets, and may be out of town for that game, but can't let them go for $200, mine are $340 each, face value.
    Sold them last year for Redskins game for $800 each. Was out of town, but I did get home for Thanksgiving, but tickets were already sold, or I would have went.

    For the most bang for your buck, I recommend eBay. Make sure the person has a high positive feedback rating though (at least 500).

    fansnap.com is a great website to compare prices of every website. Also, there is an app called seatgeek which is also awesome when it comes to finding seat value.

    I'm a fan of the NFL Ticket Exchange. They have lower seller fees than StubHub so you can generally get a better deal, and you can print right away knowing you have authentic tickets. StubHub will refund you if you ever bought counterfeit tickets, so they aren't a worry, but it's nice to me to have one less thing to worry about. I also advocate waiting as long as possible to buy tickets as prices tend to go down closer to game time.

    Tickets get shipped in late July or early August. The Ticket Exchange is the safest method to purchase, because it's linked directly to the ticket holder's account. A refund isn't going to make you happy if you travel to a football game and your tickets aren't legit.

    Mine were first week in August last year too but I was told that this year it will 100% be in mid to late July. For sure won't be August this year.
    Also every other year was in July as well.

    I got confirmation they are shipping last week in July.. so that means they the Cowboys will ship them out to the season ticket holders and then they will ship to you. No worries man... you will have them soon.
