There was a time when getting tickets to the big game or concert was nearly impossible, unless you were willing to spend the night sleeping in front of the ticket window. Luckily, the internet has changed all of that and "sold out"doesn't mean sold out anymore. Even though there are lots of choices of where to buy event tickets online, I had to share one with you that I found particularly exciting: FanPrice.com

Along with being able to buy tickets immediately, at FanPrice.com you also get to set the price you want to pay. They do it in an interesting way. Once you've searched and found the event you want to attend, you can either make an offer, by clicking the "Make Offer" link or buy it now, by clicking the "Buy Now" link.

Let's say you want to make an offer and set your price. You find your event and click on the Make Offer link. Now, you scan through the seating chart and choose where you want to sit by clicking on seating zones (these are groups of seats that have similar views). You select the zones and then the system tells you what the average price is on other websites. Remember, you can buy the tickets right now for that price by clicking on the "Buy Now" link! However, we are here to make an offer.

As you set your price the Chance-O-Meter comes to life to tell you the odds that someone will accept the offer and you will get your tickets. You set the price, input the payment and shipment information and you are all done. They do charge a 10% fee, but since you are setting your own price, it is better than the alternatives, were you are forced to pay their price AND are still charged a fee! They don't charge your credit card now, so it is not like it costs anything to place an offer. You just have to sit back and wait to see if someone accepts your offer. Remember, you can always go back and pay full price by using the buy now option on the website, but who wants to do that, right?

When someone accepts your offer, you will receive an e-mail that your credit card has been charged and when you will receive the tickets. Sometimes they are sent via Fedex, which costs around $15.00 or if the person who accepted your offer happens to have electronic tickets, they are delivered instantly and you are only charged $2.50. I like this better since not only does it cost less, but you can reprint them if you happen to accidentally let the dog get too close to them!

Well, that's it. Check it out. FanPrice.com. It is a company that allows the fans to set the price for concert, sports and event tickets, giving control back to the Fans
