"Flippers" of any kind are the absolute worst. That's bad racer and you should feel bad.
Weirdos being weird about one person reselling tickets in a thread about a lady taking in *checks notes* over a billion in revenue from tickets this week alone
Holy shit what a dumb post
It’s racer. Hi. He’s the problem, it’s racer.
Florida Man shouldn’t chime in
My wife will kill me if I don’t get these tickets
And flip them for a tidy profit
I love Taylor just as much as the rest of you but if someone offers me 5x what I paid for tickets you’re damn right I’m selling them.
pick up an economics101 book.
editors note: I also don’t have a wife or kids to please so there’s that.
But what if I have a chance to see Taylor get no hit at home?
Astros still won imo.
Everyone who does what you did is being scummy. Hope that clears it up.
Buying them solely for the sake of ripping somebody else off is some gross ass shit
Also, no reason to keep posting screenshots of StubHub with ridiculously high listings. I want to see what they're actually being sold at secondary, I've been tracking the Detroit ones today and very few secondary tickets seem to be moving.
Agreed. But if someone offered you 2k per ticket you would say thanks but no thanks?
If I bought the tickets for myself because I really wanted to attend the concert? Yes, probably.
Fair. To each their own. I hate big crowds and actually going to concerts/games.
At this point, same for me. I haven't attempted to get tickets to this.
If you aren’t going to go to a show, don’t buy tickets so someone else has the opportunity to get them. If you have to resell, do it for face.
How can you not comprehend the difference in her selling her 1/billion talent and folks exploiting a shitty oligopoly for their own personal gain?
It blows my mind how many astounding noble men we have when it comes to a Taylor Swift concert. Keep in mind we are all 30 years+ Men and well not her target audience.
If it’s okay for Taylor Swift to make money off of Taylor Swift’s music, why can’t I make money off of Taylor Swift’s music?
I've been bitching about capitalism for five pages thank you very much
Why are you guys upset that I cynically participated in this zero sum game at everyone else's expense for my own personal gain?
I even gave people the opportunity to be Swift Socialists and help out people you've spent time with for years who didn't have the luck you did. But nah lemme get that paper instead
I once bought a PS3 on release day with the sole intent to flip it on the secondary market.
I camped out the night prior, got mugged at gunpoint while being very high on knife hits and it became part of the national news in 2006. They didn't steal anything from me besides my empty wallet and dorm meal card so I bought a PS3 anyway for $700 but I couldn't flip it for a profit.... I still have it.
Moral of the story, scalpers are shitty and bad things happen to you. Lesson learned.
I mean we are all the same age as her and her targeted audience is probably most of the posters ITT wives/girlfriends/daughters soooooooo
I loved the idea fwiw
update: apparently half the group wants to go to the friday and saturday show which will likely cost us thousands in profit.
Resale market for high demand shows is gross. Hate that people pay it and hate that people do it. Let the fans get the tix for what they were originally priced at.
Scalping is a really interesting phenomenon. Historically it has been ruled by the endowment effect. There have been psychological studies on value of tickets comparing what Cameron Crazies value tickets at after camping out and winning tickets v missing out and winners valued them 3x higher
I think COVID, inflation, and social media have created a fomo epidemic that has turned everything on its ear
Shout out to the Swiftys that got them at face and refuse to let greed keep them from going.
I'd feel even a sliver of bad for my hope to profit if ticketmaster wasn't a monopoly robbing people and in bed with big time resellers. I lucked into a few extra tickets.
If anyone comes across some ATL extras please let me know.
Reminder that Taylor could stop it but doesn't. Which is an opinion I got yelled at for earlier today
She can stop the resale market? Legit question
Well that was a shit show, but my daughter was able to get 2 tickets in Atlanta, and 2 more in LA. Going for Capital One presale tomorrow.
no way to absolutely stop the black market resale but doesn't have to partner with ticketmaster to feed into the current system.
Garth brooks went mobile-only, no transfer, on TM. The only way to sell was to sell your login.
I ate 2 seats recently that I bought thinking more people might go, thinking I could at least dump them.
I’ve always like the idea of only allowing transfers through the ticket app and max allowed to sell is face plus fees. It’s a simple solution
That’s how StubHub works, though. It just says here is the email/account to transfer tickets to on TM.
We're gonna have 2 extras for our Tampa show. Kind of want to be selective about who we sell to because I could absolutely see some scumbag buying them from us at face and turning around and pulling a racer
If anyone wants nosebleed in Philly on mother's day let me know. We can sing along together
Are you sure that's how that works? I thought Ticketmaster has the contracts with the venues, not the artists. Meaning if there's an event there or basically anywhere, then they are the official ticketing company that has to be used.
The prices seem to have shifted. My sister got floor-K for slightly less than that about 20 mins after presale opened. I guess maybe dynamic pricing after all?
Hmm, what's worse than scummy people preying on Swift fans by buying up tickets they don't even want, just to flip them at exorbitant prices to people that feel they have no choice but to pay that much?
Scummy people that then post on a TS thread bragging about how well they did, but also complaining that they left some money on the table.
The other posters are right - you are the worst kind of shitty scum.
buddy, Taylor Swift has the leverage. she could dictate terms like Garth did, or throw a concert in a non-traditional venue and sell out 100 nights in a row.
Oh honey. Do you live in a padded room?
