As most Heat fans are aware, since the arrival of the ‘Three' (or whatever you want to call them) in South Florida, tickets to see the Heat have become a very hot commodity. That being the case, it makes it more difficult to not only find tickets but also get them at the best possible price. With so many different places on the Internet to look, trying to find your ideal tickets can be very time consuming.
It's on that note that I announce a very exciting partnership that every Heat fan can benefit from. Peninsula Is Mightier is teaming up with TiqIQ to make it easier then ever for Miami Heat fans to find the best possible deals on Heat tickets anywhere on the Internet, and you can do it from right here on PIM.
How it works is very easy and quite awesome. Just like Orbitz/Hotwire/Expedia etc. TiqIQ does the hard work for you. They aggregate listings from sites like StubHub, TicketsNow, and eBay to make it an easy ‘one stop shopping' destination. They don't just let you know the best prices available and what sections they are in, TiqIQ takes it to another level.
They break up each venue into what are called TiqZones. Basically, they group together sections that are not just similar in price but are also comparable in value. That's right, TiqIQ lets you know what the best deals are. Here is an example of what their breakdown looks like:
As you can see, by clicking on a certain area of the arena it shows you the available ticket options, the current average ticket price for that area as well as how that price has fluctuated in recent weeks. That's not all they do for us. They can tell you what the best deals are for particular seats and the opportune time to purchase them to ensure that your getting the lowest price.
While TiqIQ searches through several different ticket vendor's to find you the best deals, they make it a point not to charge any extra markups or fees. Getting your tickets through TiqIQ will cost you the same as if you went straight to the vendor but it saves you the time of searching for the best tickets at the best price.
As you can see from the graphic above, they also keep track of the ‘best games' and how the prices change throughout the season. With all these features, it may seem like TiqIQ is too good to be true, but this is the real deal. They provide a very user-friendly service that makes the process of buying tickets easier without charging any additional fees.
Here is a quick recap of the features that TicIQ offers to their users:
- Aggregated Listings: They aggregate listings from sites like StubHub, eBay, Ticketsnow and TicketNetwork.
- TiqZone Categorization: They break each venue up into TiqZones, which are groupings of sections that we've determined are comparable in value.
- TiqIQ Statistics: They provide ticket-level buying intelligence through their IQ rating and TiqIQ Statistics.
- E-Ticket Filter: Want tickets last minute? You can find all the available e-tickets so you can print your tickets from home or the office.
There is a link to the Peninsula Is Mightier TiqIQ Tickets page on the top bar of PIM, next to the links for the Heat schedule, stats and roster (underneath where it says "Where we all live in Miami-Wade County"). Remember, even if a game is sold out you can still find tickets here. If you have any questions or anything else for me please don't hesitate to shoot me an e-mail.
