Discount Tickets to The Big Apple Circus in Boston

Discounts to the Big Apple Circus in Boston

The Big Apple Circus is back!

Enjoy The Big Apple Circus in an intimate setting at Assembly Row in Somerville from April 7, 2018 to May 6, 2018.

Tickets for The Big Apple Circus start range from $19 to $100 + service fees through Ticketmaster and prices will range depending on the show date and time.

However, Goldstar currently has discount tickets for the Big Apple Circus starting at $12 + service fees for select dates, although you may not be able to select your exact seats but you will be able to see the section.

Keep in mind there’s a big difference in service fees between the two ticket sources. I was playing around with tickets and prices and found that Ticketmaster charged at least $7+ per ticket in fees + a $5.15 total order processing fee, so for two tickets it would be roughly an extra $20 on top of the regular ticket price.

Goldstar ticket fees vary depending on tickets but the average would be around $4-5 per ticket for fees, so you see the savings in the ticket fees as well. However, the price difference may vary depending on dates and seats you select as I was looking at ticket fees for the cheaper ticket options mostly.

Buying discount tickets through Goldstar is a great option if you are looking for ways to save on ticket costs!

Rare Shaw’s Monolopy Pieces for 2018!

monopoly game 2018

Are you looking for the rare game pieces for the 2018 Monopoly game at Shaw’s?

The Monopoly Game is back with over $250 million in prizes and money saving offers. Game tickets are distributed until May 8, 2018 or when all tickets are gone. You will also have until May 29, 2018 to claim your prize(s) at the customer service desk.

Every time you shop at Shaw’s, Star Market, or another participating store you will receive a game ticket at checkout. Look for BONUS items to receive even more game tickets from your shopping trip.

Keep in mind that the game is available at over 2000+ stores in 34 different states (Shaw’s, Star Market, Albertsons, Safeway, Jewel Osco, Acme Markets, Pavilions, Carrs, Vons, Randalls, Tom Thumb, Market Street, United Supermarkets, and Amigos) and chances are winning are pretty slim because people this is not local to the Northeast supermarket chain.

There are over ONE BILLION tickets created so you probably don’t want to buy things you wouldn’t ordinary buy or go out of your way to shop at Shaw’s just for the tickets because there’s such a small chance to win, especially a big prize.
