You may be asking yourself why the tickets from MegaSeats are so much cheaper than the official seller. Well, the answer lies in the hidden fees.

At the official website Ticketmaster, additional servicing and processing fees are added. When you start the process for purchasing, the price for the tickets is not the price you end with. The total ticket price mystery is not clear until you have entered your credit card information near the end of the checkout process, where tickets can and have increased by thirty to fifty percent.

With MEGASeats.com, the mystery is taken out of the process. The ticketing website advertises itself as a no fees ticket seller, and they live up to that claim. Though at first glance the tickets available at Ticketmaster and MEGASeats in the same area of the arena may seem similar in price, by the end of the checkout process you see a huge difference in prices.

If you want to get Mets tickets at a better price, or any other MLB game, your best bet is to purchase them at MEGASeats.
