I have been contemplating heading back home to catch a Mets game, so I started researching my options to find the best prices. I remember when Citi Field was opened in 2009 and tickets were going for at least $20 and that did not guarantee you a seat. Now seats are going for as little as $10 on StubHub. Ever since the start of last season the team and tickets started going on a downward spiral. Last season, Mets tickets were going for as little at $2 on StubHub for weekday games so who knows where they will end up being priced by the end of this season. Click here to continue reading
As of 2010, the by far the best way to see a Mets game is the McFadden's VIP package. From my friend Kurt Smith's blog; "A VIP Package at McFadden's Citi Field includes: one hour of open bar, an order of chicken wings, a ticket for a free drink after the game, and a ticket to the game--and not just a ticket but a ticket to the 100 or 300 level! All for somewhere between $30 and $60, generally depending on whom the Mets are playing.
Buying directly from the Mets, a 100 or 300 level ticket alone costs more than that. At $60 this is a total steal, at $30, well, you start to think like me...wondering what the catch is."
Kurt goes onto say that there really is no catch, but there is a limited number and it is for select dates. Who knows if this will be an option for years to come, but here is the McFadden website for more information on dates and prices. My recommendation would be to plan ahead and take advantage of this phenomenal deal.
