Found out about this new ticket package that the Cubs
are offering this morning. Attendance has been pretty dismal so far, so I guess the team is doing whatever it can to fill seats. You pretty much can go to a game for free on some dates - at $10/ticket it's like buying a beer and a hot dog with a free ticket. Interesting to see that bleachers against the Cardinals
are available too ($40-$60 per ticket). All in all, it's not a bad deal. With a name like "Best Buy", maybe they'll throw in a flat screen TV too... :)
It's pretty obvious that ticket sales are poor for many teams this year...I live in Seattle and got a Groupon for the Mariners
today. $60 for a seat in a luxury box with a $10 food voucher. I don't think I've ever seen suite seats sold like that before.
Anyways, the deal is below.
The Cubs have introduced the Best Buy Pack, which includes four tickets to any April or May home game, four Vienna Beef Hot Dogs and four Bud Light, Budweiser or Pepsi fountain beverages starting at just $40. Best Buy Packs may be purchased in different sections within Wrigley Field, subject to ticket availability.
Best Buy Packs start at $40 for Upper Deck Reserved Outfield, or $48 for Upper Deck Reserved Infield during Bronze home games. Terrace Reserved Outfield or Infield Packs start at $56 and $60, respectively, while Upper Deck Box Outfield or Infield start at $84 and $108, respectively. Terrace Box Outfield and Bud Light Bleacher Best Buy Packs start at $88. Prices do not include convenience fees or City of Chicago and Cook County amusement tax.
