My buddy at work gets all these Travelzoo discount emails. Usually the only sports related discounts are the Knicks begging people to come watch their piss poor basketball teams. But as we all have seen the Yankees this season have been struggling to fill up the stadium as well. However, I never thought it would get to the point where they were massively discounting everything and not just the overpriced luxury seats. But it apparently has regressed to that point as tickets in the entire ballpark are not a hot commodity on Ticketmaster's secondary market.
This ad on Travelzoo offers tickets ranging from 6-11$, and they are waving the shipping fee. Additionally some of the Main Level tickets are selling at a 50% reduced rate. Essentially anyone selling their tickets on this market is going to take a loss, even tickets against the defending AL Champions.
