Tix 4 Tonite - your biggest score?

We'll be using T4T in April during our next trip and hope to pick up some great seats for Rock of Ages and maybe one other show. We're scheduled to be there Sunday - Tuesday and I know many shows are dark on Monday but this lead me wonder what great tickets/seats others might have scored and been truly elated with their decision to purchase from the discount ticketer versus booking in advance and paying premium price... would love to hear your experience.

Thanks... T-62

Only once have I seen a ticket there that I didn't expect. They had a Celine ticket one day. I think it was discounted 20%, and it was just a single ticket. It did not sell in the 20 minutes or so that I was there.

BTW: Tix4tonite does not assign seats. In fact they do not even give you a ticket. You receive a voucher, which must then be taken to the theatre and exchanged for tickets.

Tix4tonite offers moderate savings...you can even find many discounts on other sites that are on par with it. I use tix4tonite only when I see a show last minute. My last experience using them was to see the show you are asking about--Rock of Ages. We waited in line at the booth in the sun for about 30 minutes. We then had to take a voucher to the Venetian box office--they advised going ASAP to get the best seats, as the venue box office is assigning seats, not them. So, we waited in another line at the box office. The entire process took over an hour. Bottom line:if you know a specific show you want to see, buy the darn tickets ahead of time. The meager savings is not worth precious vacation time.

If you consider anything from Tix4Tonight a "big score" then you're just not doing your homework for discounts before you go (outside of the rare thing Ktinca mentioned above). Most tickets they have there can be found online for virtually the same discount, without the hassle of going to their location and then to the box office. When buying online, beforehand, you also get your choice of seating location and price level.

Heinz - I totally get what you're saying and no, I definitely don't expect that I'd get AMAZING seats for pennies - I was asking more figuratively... more along the lines of like what ktinca mentioned. For a solo traveler to get the Celine ticket when they were maybe just picking whatever might've been left over - that would be a very nice suprise!

Greenseahorse, thanks for sharing your experience with ROA tickets - and you're right - when you consider the time spent in lines and the whole process - is it really worth it in the end? I've never used the service before and hoped to get some insight to share down the road but I'm also considering trying the dinner package? So either way - with as many times as I've visited Vegas - I'm always looking to try something a different way - and this was one of those things.

Thanks all for your posts.

When I was in Vegas last March we booked our Rock of Ages tickets ahead of the trip as there was a BOGOF or buy one get one half price + tax deal. This worked out a better discount than buying at tickets4tonight. Deffo keep an eye out!

The nice thing about T4T is that if you don't know what your plans are for the day and don't want to buy ahead they offer a nice way to score some cheaper seats on day of show.

As others have said, you can often get as good (or better) deals online. Then you will usually know what seats you are buying, AND save the hassle of standing in lines and then also trudging to a far away casino box office to pick up the tickets.

Almost never the best deal out there. Probably why few are telling of their great finds at the booths but would love to hear of any.
