Half price admission...really?
« on: August 06, 2013, 02:25:09 PM »
Greetings all! 
Has anyone ever bought admission passes off of "RealDeal.clickondetroit"?  Half price....sounds too good to be legit.

I purchased all my tickets to RenFest last year through CBS Local Offers.  They are running the same deal this year through Sunday.  Adult tickets are just $10.

I should add that with the CBS Local Offer, the voucher is only good through Labor Day 9/2 according to the website.  The past two years I believe the vouchers were good for the entire run of the fest.  The Click On Detroit offer appears to be good for the entire fest through 9/29 (according to their website).  In past years you simply needed to hand in the voucher at the gate and there was no need to exchange for a ticket at the ticket window.
Fare thee Well.

Thanks for the details! We're planning on going for Labor Day weekend, so we're covered either way. See you all there!

Tried to get these tickets last night, but it won't allow my Canadian address... Any ideas?

 Know anyone in the states you can send it to?  Failing that,  the cheapest way to go is to have a  college id  card and bring 4  canned goods so you can get 5  dollars off the student price.

As far as I can tell, this deal would get emailed to me, so I don't have to actually have the tickets mailed there. The address seems to be a billing address, but as I plan to use my credit card, I don't see that anything would actually get sent there - all charges would go thru the credit card.

I think the address is just to verify that you are a "local" which is what the deal is inteded for.... but would welcome other ideas!

I just purchased and yes, the vouchers are a link that is emailed to you.

When I put in my billing address (which also an Ohio zip code), their system added "US" afterward. I would guess you are correct in that the offer is targeted at local addresses.

Do you have a relative or know a friend (with a US billing address) that could make the purchase for you? They could forward you the link so you could print it and go.

No, not really. I may try a generic address, and see if I can make it work....

Ok, so I managed to purchase tickets, using my Canadian address at the first link mentioned, realdeal. The CBS one is expired, but wouldn't accept a Canadian address.

Thanks for posting this deal! It allows us to keep our costs low!

Looking forward to seeing all you fine folk on the labour day weekend!

 On the other hand,  with the Detroit one,  you can get half off the  student admission as well.  just have to have id  at gate.
