“Fraudulent tickets and descriptions ”

Written on: 29/11/2015 by PeggyO5 (1 review written)

Purchased tickets on the vivid seats website for parking passes to a football game. Description very clearly stated Parking at Met Life stadium. Following the purchase being finalized the passes came up saying these were off site parking, with the only way to get to the stadium being an $8 each way shuttle back and forth to Met Life, which also was not included in the description.(It cost our family an extra $96 for the shuttle to and from the stadium) Immediately called Vivid Tickets for a… Read Full Review

“Customer Service”

Written on: 21/11/2015 by Traverse (1 review written)

I will be honest in stating my original experience as a first time buyer involved some hiccups. I was the frustrated customer any business would rather not deal with. I reached out to Vivid Seats, they also reached out to me and we came to a resolution to leave me as a satisfied customer. Customer Service is what allows a business to sustain and stand above the competitors. Thank you… Read Full Review

“WAY Overpriced!!”

Written on: 10/11/2015 by Leannai1978 (1 review written)

Recently bought 2 Richard Marx concert tickets. I just found out that my tickets where way overpriced. Genesse theater is selling the same tickets for 28$ for the same row and I bought mine for 54$ a piece not including tax and e-mail delivery price. Spent 149 $ altogether. So very unhappy and disappointed right now. Will never buy again… Read Full Review

“High Service and Delivery Fees.”

Written on: 26/09/2015 by IBenScammed (1 review written)

I purchased two Blackhawk tickets for a preseason game and was charged an extra $50 for special delivery. The problem was there was no special delivery I had to go myself and pick the tickets up at there office. So they charge a fee for my effort and extra mileage to navigate downtown Chicago. In addition I will need to be down there at exactly one hour before the event starts to get the tickets and then rush back to find parking, it's a joke. Oh of course if your late, they close 30 minutes… Read Full Review

“Beware of Vivid Seats”

Written on: 21/09/2015 by CarleyWalker256 (1 review written)

I ordered three tickets from Vivid Seats for the KSU/La Tech football game. The seats I picked out were in the bottom third of the upper deck of the stadium, on the 50 yard line, and were priced at $17 each. By the the time I got through the online ordering process, fees had evidently been added, and the price of the tickets was $37 each when I completed the order and clicked submit. I was irritated by this, but was just glad to get tickets, and did not consider it to be too much to pay… Read Full Review

“Have you ever paid more for a service charge than the...”

Written on: 15/09/2015 by tayemandan (1 review written)

Have you ever paid more for a service charge than the actual face value of a ticket? Well be prepared because at vividseats, that's pretty much the norm. Most service fees are over $100.00 per ticket! Oh and watch for the # of tickets in the dropdown menu at checkout,,,,we changed it to 2 yet when we paid it had reverted it back to 3 and charged us for all 3 tickets. Customer service then says, sorry NO REFUNDS.Buy anywhere but Vividseats… Read Full Review

“Never using again”

Written on: 14/09/2015 by Finley402 (1 review written)

I bought tickets to a baseball game and when I got to the gate to scan my tickets, it said the tickets were already in use. I went to the ticket gate and the lady said that what most likely happened was the seller sold the tickets twice and basically whoever got to the gate first got into the game. So the next day I called vivid seats to ask for a refund since I did not get into the game with those tickets and had to buy a whole new set of tickets. The customer service was awful. I was… Read Full Review

“Wish I would have read reviews before using Vivid Seats”

Written on: 13/09/2015

AbSolute CAM (not allowed to but the actual word in review)! I ordered Garth Brooks tickets for Dallas and soon realized I had another engagement that time & date that I couldn't miss. I called customer support to see if I could just switch tickets for the same show/seats/etc. for the previous evening. They said I had already bought the tickets in a legally binding fashion, and that the best they could do was send me tickets early so I might be able to find someone to swap with. I called… Read Full Review

“Huge service fees and customer service NIGHTMARE”

Written on: 21/08/2015 by Vivianr63 (1 review written)

Very very very disappointed - bought a parking pass listed for $15 which turned out to have a 2.95 processing fee and 6.95 for it to be Emailed to me. I was using paypal so the fees did not show up until the confirmation screen. I purchased anyway - then the confirmation showed that it was for the early show and I needed the late show. I immediately did on line chat to see if they would switch from the 3:30 show to the 7:30 show and they said - NOPE - I was in a binding contract but they… Read Full Review

“Absolute Crooks - Should be Put Out of Business”

Written on: 05/08/2015

There is nothing good about this enterprise. On July 9th, 2015 I ordered online two (2) lawn seats for a Steely Dan concert on August 1st, 2015 at the PNC Arts Center in NJ. I printed out the tickets a few days later. The face rate on the tickets was $39.50 each. I stashed them in my briefcase and went about my business. The night of the show I was a bit suspicious when I saw Section 403 Row G Seats 122 & 124 printed on the ticket.....these were lawn seats, open seating!!! Then I noticed… Read Full Review

“Never purchase tickets from this Company!”

Written on: 05/08/2015 by AnnoyedCustomer500 (1 review written)

"I attempted to purchased tickets on Aug 3, 2015 and still today, Aug 5 I am still receiving emails asking for information that has already been sent. First the claim was that the credit card was not clear and a digital copy was requested. Next email claimed the ID was not clear and again the request for a digital copy. Now the initial form has to be resubmitted. I'm done! Never have I had such a horrible experience purchasing tickets! I called the toll free number this morning and the person… Read Full Review

“unknown service charge”

Written on: 31/07/2015 by hdFuller214 (1 review written)

I bought Patriot tickets today for my boyfriend and I off this website. When I checked out, I was charged $100 more on my credit card for a "service charge". I did not see it before check out. When I called customer service, I was told that the charge was listed off to the side of the checkout page. Also, there are no ticket refunds. Very upset. Will not be purchasing from this site again… Read Full Review
