  • new tradition with a packers fan - question on tickets



    sadly my sister passed away recently. Her husband is a great guy and is a die hard packers fan. Looking at old pictures when he was20 and just started to date her, he was 1/2 age, and 1/2 weight, as his current statsbut still had a packers shirt on.




    we have decided to meet each year to see a game together, depending on the schedule. This year the packers will be in NY 11/25 so he'll be visiting me for thanksgiving and then the game.




    hopefully we dont get raped trying to buy tickets. The past few years i've used NFL exchange to get tickets. Is that the best option or places like stub hub?

    Sorry for your loss.




    I prefer stubhub, but Packers/Giants tickets will cost you no matter where you get them from . . . .

      Yeah, thats gonna be a tough one to get reasonable tickets for. Stubhub, Ebay...all of them are going to be tough to come by. Just keep looking for the best deal and take what you can get.

      Sincere condolences for your recent loss.

        Best deal is usually right outside the stadium on game day.

            I have season tickets, but have used both NFL Ticket Exchange and Stub Hub when I needed extras. I haven't had any issues with either one.

                Sorry for your lost. I do find that stub hub usually have reasonable prices. I usually get tickets at the last minute, and usually pay face value or a shade under.

                Lets go, Giants!

                  Football has been very, very good to us.
                  After losing seasons 2013-15, the giants put up 11 wins in 16.. they are on way Back
                  But for now we can console ourselves with this fact-

                  # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

                  1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
                  2-Washington, Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
                  3-San Francisco, Dallas, Denver
                  4-New York Giants!!!
                  5-NE
                  Let's make it 5 in 2016 so we can be on a LINE NE again!!!

                    Condolences friend. I lost my sister a year ago and understand what you are going through.




                    On the NFL Ticket exchange, I have tried to sell my tickets once or twice but they don't allow me to drop the prices below my face amount to al level where I can find buyers. Maybe it is because I have Club Level seats and the Giants are trying to keep the world from knowing how little demand there is. I suspect that at Stub Hub they allow you to sell them for any price which tells me that you can probably find a better deal on Stub Hub.




                    That said, you will always find the best price outside the stadium just before game time but you will have to deal with all the uncertainty that goes with that.




                    Hang in there.

                    No one remembers who came in second.

                      sorry for your loss....i dont have much to add to the other posts on here but i'd offer the comment that prices may be a bit lower as its a holiday weekend game, and maybe more tix will be up for sale, but will still be on the pricey side...

                          My condolences. Prayers go out to you and your family.

                          If you're going to the Packers Giants, I would say tickets will be about 150 each. In fact, when I went to the Falcons Giants game last year, they were about 125 off of ticketmaster, so i would say 150 off of stubhub is understandable.

                          If you're going to go to a game, you might as well pick one worth going to because a game against the Cleveland Browns will cost 110-120. I'd say the 150 is worth it and you should go for it.

                          I would wait a little. As the date approaches, more tickets are put on stubhub and the ones that are up there will decrease. It gets cheapest a day or two before the game but i don't know if you would want to take that risk. Like someone said, it's cheapest when people are trying to get rid of them so a couple of hours before the game on stubhub OR in person at the stadium will be your best bet.

                            thanks for all replies. will wait until season is underway and check stubhub and exchange for best deals. Not sure i want to risk trying outside the stadium since i am not local.
