People ask me if they can use a presale password to get a discount on tickets – I told them the same thing I always do: Nothing worth seeing ever gets put on sale, and rarely do you get a discount during a presale. Your best bet is to take advantage of promotions like a 4-pack or just enjoy some nice seats by buying them during a presale using a presale password.

GoldStar has Half Price Tickets!!

Recently though, all of that has changed. Groupon signed a deal with LiveNation to put unsold Inventory on the discount block. A few other companies have been quietly working on the sidelines to build agreements with venues and promoters…

With more and more performers going on tour to make up for a smaller share of digital album sales there was bound to be some excess inventory and a couple of years ago GoldStar appeared to help move that inventory at a discounted rate of %50 off.

In a nutshell: GoldStar has half-price event tickets, and membership is FREE (as in beer).

I got an email a few days ago from a friend of mine, Kim S. and MAN am I pumped… Kim told me about a little known site that is HUGE NEWS for everyone looking for great deals on entertainment: as in HALF-PRICE tickets to concerts, theater and sporting events, plus loads of member reviews, tips on what to wear, what to do about snacks and food, even transportation (when parking is an issue, you get the heads up).

But I had to ask myself, is this too good to be true? What kind of events can we find on GoldStar? Is there enough variety, and most importantly, QUALITY to justify giving out my email address?

YES. YES and YES. Join Now to see for yourself

Join right now. Don’t even read the rest of this article – the deals are too good to miss, the whole site is easy to use, if a little slow at times (be patient while the signup page loads).

It is worth pointing out that until you join you can’t really see what you’re getting we have links to some of the cities that GoldStar covers:
