Consider the following two discounts via the deal platform LivingSocial.
Tickets to Brooklyn Nets games versus the Miami Heat and Chicago Bulls were apparently jacked up too much.
So now they're on a significant discount, from 24% to 37.5% for the cheap seats, and 26% to 35% (plus a $75 credit at the 40/40 Club) for the more expensive seats.
Keep in mind that, according to various accounts, Living Social takes 40% of the sale price, so the Nets actually reap far less than the discounted ticket price.
Tickets to the Progressive Legends Classic on Monday, November 24 or Tuesday, November 25 are 46% off, at least if you think $76 is a reasonable face value for college hoops.
Actually, they're selling seats directly for $15 (plus service charge, as noted at right), and for the lower bowl.
In other words, they're trying to move some of the higher priced seats even as there are lots of good seats cheap.
Why didn't they lower the price of some seats in the first place?
