This site charged me over $300 more than the tickets I bought were worth. My only downfall was trusting that TicketLuck.com was charging fair market value. Customer service hid behind the policy that all sales are final. This site is a total scam.

    TicketLuck.com is owned by the For Less Corporation. They also own:
    IXS.net
    Ticketmayor.com
    TicketNest.com
    TicketNest.net

    Avoid these sites at all costs.

    They are a scamming company. They need to be stopped. Read this article in my local news in Ohio.

    Apparently they are selling tickets for events in this local club, when the club doesn't even sell tickets online. You have to actually go there to purchase them. So, basically they are selling fake tickets for fake and real events.

    "Ticket Luck Discount Code" is a good search that can help reel you the Ticket Luck (http://www.TicketLuck.com) scam.

    This company works hard on their search engine rankings so true posts like this don't show up. Unless you want to spend ridiculous prices, don't buy from Ticket Luck - go directly to the venue.

    Customers are sometimes disappointed to find that the face value of the ordered tickets is much lower than the price they paid. However, the prices are set by brokers who themselves acquire and consolidate the tickets through E-Bay, customers selling tickets. These brokers, often add a markup based on demand for the tickets. Our site basically allows the brokers a place to sell the tickets, and therefore our site acts as a marketplace. The actual prices can be considered to be the "market value" of these tickets at any point in time.

    Please keep in mind that TicketLuck and its sister websites do not act as PRIMARY sale box office. We only act as intermediary between buyers and ticket brokers. To know how our websites work, please visit following link: http://www.ticketluck.com/how-ticketluck-works.php

    Tickets on our websites are posted from secondary ticket market brokers who are reselling them, sometimes, above the face value. It is brokers who determine the sales price for a ticket that depends on such factors as the difficulty and cost of obtaining tickets from the primary sale box office, and price fluctuations etc.

    TicketLuck cannot confirm the price of an item until customers order. However, the Fulfilling Brokers do NOT charge credit card until after the ticket has been secured. Despite our best efforts, if any ticket is priced higher than the stated price, the Fulfilling Broker will, at their discretion, contact the customer for instructions before shipping.

    Regardless of who fulfills the tickets and who sets the prices, is TicketLuck.com providing a service of value? No.

    Ticket Luck enables scalpers to take advantage of consumers.

    Wow, I almost used this site... but then I realized the the tickets for the concert I wanted weren't even sold out. I would have paid almost twice as much to use this site than just order the tickets from the box office. The tickets sold on this site are not even close to "market price."

    Would a morally responsible company find themselves writing these kinds of public letters in response to being outted by the BBC?

    You just need to shop around, I think. I found tickets for $19 at Ticket Luck and they're $50 anywhere else.

    well, apparently no one has had a bad experience with stubhub enough to talk about it. Ticket Luck on the other hand has screwed several people. Why are you searching out complaints about Ticket Luck, Mark James? You really created an account just to write that one comment?

    I just fell victim to ticketluck which was my misfortune for the day! It is pathetic that there are vultures out there lurking to take advantage of honest and hard working people who may have acted in haste. Also their organization is so insulated that it is next to impossible to pursue any equity. BUYER BEWARE!!!

    Literally they have tickets on their site which are listed for $430. Price from the venue $16.50. I called the venue and the row that they are listing is at the very back of the balcony and hasn't even been bought yet. So as near as I can tell the broker must list the tickets then when they sell go and purchase them from the theater. Ridiculous. Always go to the theater, arena etc.'s website first.
