- Order your tickets from them and quote your discount code
|How do I know where the seat is ?
After you sign up for our Broadway Ticket
Guide, you login and read the guide -- we give you instructions in the
guide on how you order your tickets from Ticketmaster or TeleCharge. You
decide on the location of your seat when you call them, they will tell
you what seats they have available -- they are the same seats that the
public buys, but you are just paying much less.
|How many tickets can I buy ?
As many tickets as you want! Some shows put caps at 8 tickets per
person, but you can usually call back and get more if you need them.
|Can you guarantee that the Broadway Ticket Guide will have a discount for the exact performance of the show I want to see?
We can make no guarantees that there will be a discount for any show in
particular. People who wish to purchase the Broadway Ticket Guide should
do so with this in mind. We simply furnish our customers with all
available discount information for a very modest fee. If there is a
discount available for the show of interest, you'll have access to the
code. If there is no discount available, there is nothing we can do. We
update our database three times daily.
|Do restrictions apply to any of the Broadway discounts?
Broadway theaters reserve the right to place restrictions on the use of
discount codes when purchasing tickets. In some cases they decide to
exercise this right. We usually see most restrictions on discounts
around the Xmas / New Year holidays and various official holidays.
Occasionally a Broadway show may exclude Saturday night, but these are
usually only the top shows and the exclusion is most often short-lived.
When you call the ticket sales number, they can give you the very latest
discount code restrictions (If any) applicable to that Broadway show.
|How do we receive our discounted Broadway tickets ?
Exactly the same way you would get a regular priced ticket: You can pick
it up at the box office or have it mailed to you. It is a regular
ticket -- just discounted!
does it take to receive the tickets ?
It takes the usual few days to receive the ticket. It is a regular ticket, just at a discounted
Ask them when you order how long it is for delivery (it will usually be
just a few days). You can also pick up the tickets at the Box Office.
|How often are the guides updated ?
The Broadway Guide is updated as soon as we receive changes from the
theatres, which sometimes can be three times a day. The TV guide is
updated every couple of weeks.
|How close to my trip should I get access to the guide ?
For the Broadway Guide, usually a couple months before
your trip is about the earliest you should get it. Assuming that the
Broadway show still has tickets available, the night before the show is
the very latest. The discount codes are usually valid for the next 60 -
90 days, although sometimes it is less, and other times we often have
codes that cover up to 120 days in advance. You get 30 days of access to
the guide, so during that period the Broadway shows that you intend to
see will pop up with discounts that are applicable to your trip.
Also keep in mind that the Broadway Ticket Guide is only $4, so you can
afford to get it a bit earlier just to understand how everything works,
even though you might need to pay again to get the date you actually
want. The student discounts and standing room only ticket information in
the guide applies regardless of the date.
For the TV Guide we suggest at the earliest is 6 months
and the night before is the very latest. (Although there may not be a
lot of choice at that time.)
|How many Broadway shows can I buy tickets for using the guide ?
As many as you want!
You can see almost every show on Broadway if you like -- the
online guide will give you access to all the show discounts that are
available, not just one or two.
|Are there any other charges incurred with purchasing tickets (taxes, shipping), and what are the charges ?
Just the same as regular ticket. It is a regular ticket, just
discounted. If you need to see the statutory charges that TicketMaster
or TeleCharge make, go to their web sites and attempt to make a sale --
the charges will be outlined. (Don't actually put the sale through,
though, unless you really want them.)
|Is there any way I can avoid paying the Ticketmaster or Tele-Charge fees ?
(Currently $6.00 per ticket)
You can avoid the fees by taking our codes directly to the box office and buying your tickets there.
The problem is, though, how do you know if any tickets are available for
the show you want and will the codes be honored for the show you want
before going there ?
Some people call Ticketmaster or Tele-Charge first to find out those
details but then don't actually buy them from them. This is one way to
be certain that there are no restrictions on the discount code for the
date you want to use it -- however, between the time calling and
actually going there, there is always the possibility that the tickets
could have been sold out.
|Are tickets to TV show tapings purchased the same way that Broadway show tickets are?
No. TV tickets are typically free and for that reason obtaining these
tickets is a very different (and less certain) process than purchasing
Broadway tickets. Getting them often involves calling a reservation line
or waiting in line for standby tickets. Our TV Ticket Guide gives you
the inside scoop on the best way to snag tickets for the New York City
TV shows that you want to see.
|What are the charges for the online guide ?
Online access to our Broadway Ticket Guide is $4, the TV Show Ticket
Guide is $3, and our Parking Discount is $2. You can get all three for
$7. We charge you only once, and your access will expire at the end of
30 days. We will e-mail you notice when your account is about to expire,
but we do not automatically re-bill you. We figure that you will find
the guide invaluable, so we want you to come back to us and re-subscribe
when you want to go to other shows in the future.
I don't like using credit cards to pay for things on the web because of security issues.
Is there any other way of paying for a subscription ?
Our web site only accepts payment through Paypal or 2Checkout.
Both services process your credit card number completely
independently of us - so your credit card info never comes to us --
they just tell us when you have paid.
If you are really concerned with giving those
companies your credit card number then another way of paying online is
to use a CitiBank credit card. For all Citi card members, they have a
special service called "Virtual Account Numbers" - This service allows
you to create a unique credit card number for every transaction, so the
card number is useless after the transaction has gone through -- it only
lasts for one transaction, so if someone steals it, it doesn't matter
because it's useless! The downside is that you need an Citibank credit
card. But it is a great way to foil the credit card bandits out there
and so far we cannot find a fault with it. The URL for CitiBank Virtual
Account Numbers is: CitiBank Virtual Account Numbers
|What is the TKTS discount ticket booth ?
(It is also known as the Half Price Ticket Stand and Twofers)
This is a ticket booth where discount tickets are sold on the day of the
performance. The line can be very long and it is in the open air
(summer and winter are pretty extreme in New York). Tickets are sold at
25% or 50% off and there is limited availability of tickets.
NYTix.com combines the ease of regular advanced orders with the
attractive discounts of the TKTS booth.
