Two years ago I went on a much-needed vacation to Monterey Bay and fell in love with the aquarium there. I love to go back and look at the pictures of the seahorses and remember how much I wanted to take T to an aquarium. I just know he would love it!
Problem? We don’t have an aquarium in Reno.
Since it wasn’t a quick and easy type of trip, it was easy to put off. And put off. And, eventually, kind of forget about.
Then I was approached by ScoreBig. I was hesitant at first to give it a try. I’m not a sports fan, and I honestly thought it was a place to buy tickets for sporting events.
I logged on and saw immediately that you can get tickets to attractions like Legoland and Knott’s Berry Farm, the theater (Broadway, anyone?), concerts (even Vans Warped Tour), and Aquarium of the Bay. In San Francisco.
The great thing about ScoreBig is that you can negotiate your own price and are guaranteed to save on every ticket you purchase through the site. There are no additional fees and the tickets are delivered for free. When you order through ScoreBig, you can choose your seating area and all the seats you order together will be next to each other. No more worrying that your date will have to sit three rows over, or that your kids won’t be seated next to you.
I selected Aquarium of the Bay and was pleased to see that I could buy tickets that would be good through December 2014. That meant I didn’t have to plan a specific day to take T. I could just buy the tickets, and then use them on our next trip to the Bay Area. The website showed me how much the tickets would typically cost and then asked me to suggest a price I was willing to pay. After I entered my amount, I got an instant decision on whether they would accept my price or not. No waiting.
ScoreBig is super easy to use and navigate. I was a little disappointed at the selection, but only because I don’t live in a big enough city to be featured (yet?). There are a lot more options for people who live in places like New York City, Los Angeles, or Miami. But that’s to be expected, right? They have offers in at least one city in 47 of the 50 states. They even have offers in Las Vegas to represent Nevada, but San Francisco is a shorter drive for me.
ScoreBig ships the tickets for free, so in less than a week I’ll have tickets in hand. I love that they are flexible for the aquarium so we can go at any time. I’m sure a trip to the aquarium (and maybe some more fun in San Francisco!) will be a great way to get away from the heat this summer.
I received credit to purchase tickets and review my experience from ScoreBig.com. No other compensation was received and the opinions above are 100% my own. The links on this page contain a referral code so I get credit if you sign up and purchase tickets.
