Boston Red Sox Waive Ticket Fees, Today Only!

UPDATE: EXTENDED THROUGH THE WEEKEND!

If you are interested in buying Boston Red Sox Tickets for the remaining 2016 season, you may want to do so today!

All Red Sox Ticket fees will be waived today, Thursday, August 11, 2016 (and all weekend now too!) when purchased directly through the Red Sox ticketing site.

What does this mean? It means you save $4.50 per ticket and $7 per transaction in ticket fees, so if you bought two tickets to a Red Sox game you would save $16 today.

I love when the Red Sox waive their ticketing fees because it’s an easy way to save money directly through the source.
