Good morning everyone. I am taking a page out of Miles Per Day’s book and sharing my success with ticket reselling. Long story short, I purchased 2 tickets to the WW Presents Oprah’s 2020 Vision: Your Life in Focus Live on Tour from Ticketmaster during an American Express presale. Due to a scheduling conflict, I couldn’t use the tickets, so I decided to sell them back on Ticketmaster. By sheer dumb luck, I ended up making $476.58 after the tickets sold. Here’s what happened…
I purchased 2 tickets in section 213 at the new Chase Center in San Francisco. Section 213 is the upper level that looks straight onto the stage. I got in early with an American Express presale and paid a total of $293 for 2 tickets on September 13.
Several other tickets were listed for sale, but none in my section. The tickets in Section 212, Row 8 were probably the most comparable tickets. Since the event was a few months out (February 22, 2020), I priced the tickets at $449 each and expected them to sit for a while.
Surprisingly, a few days later, the tickets sold and my net proceeds after Ticketmaster fees came to $769.58, which represents a $476.58 profit.
I figured Oprah tickets were hot tickets and just got lucky on this resale. I am not planning on reselling any other event tickets in the near future, I will leave that to Vinh and the other professionals. Like they say, I would rather be lucky than good. If you have the opportunity to purchase Oprah tickets at a good price, it could be a good money maker. If you have any questions about reselling tickets on Ticketmaster, please leave a comment below. Have a great day everyone!
