The 2012 NHL Stanley Cup playoff schedule is out and finding tickets won’t be a problem for fans, but paying too much for through online ticket sites may be. The fact is most websites selling NHL playoff tickets online have hidden service charges that can add 10% or much more to the final price of the ticket to confuse the fans into thinking they are getting a better deal, when more likely they are paying more than they should.
Here’s what you can do to save on service fees for Stanley Cup playoff tickets:
- Watch for fees that don’t show up until you select the shipping option. You may have to scroll up to see the extra charges.
- Make sure the website has both a phone number and a physical address. You’d be surprised to see how many don’t provide both.
- Check the companies record with the Better Business Bureau. Complaints about hidden fees usually show up there.
- Call and ask for the complete price if you’re not sure. You should be able to get exact seat numbers and a delivery date as well.
- If you’re going to compare playoff ticket prices don’t just look at the top three choices on Google. They pay dearly for those positions and must pass those costs on to the customer.
- Last, check with PreferredSeat.com before you buy 2012 NHL Stanley Cup playoff tickets. Fans have turned to Preferred Seating since 1987 for the best prices, no hidden service fees and service that is second to none.
