Hurricane Sandy made it impossible for my party of 8 to use our Army-Airforce tickets due to no electricity, no water, no heat on our northwest NJ area. However the 125% guarantee doesn't cover acts of nature as long as the game goes on. To heck with the safety of getting there!!! Therefore I not only am losing money daily because of this disaster, Ticket Liquidator chooses to flush
Ianother $500.00 out of my pocket, with their sympathies of course!!!
Our Response on Wednesday, Nov 07, 2012 at 5:55 PM:
Hello Linda! Thank you very much for your email. We're so very sorry to hear about the difficulties you have experienced in regards to the hurricane that recently hit the East Coast. Hurricane Sandy caused a great deal of hardship for a lot people. We at TL are located in Connecticut and our friends and family suffered along with everyone else. We have attempted to assist customers impacted by the hurricane as best as we possibly can.
In your case, you were unable to attend the event for which you purchased tickets due to travel difficulties. The event was scheduled for 11/3 and the hurricane hit on 10/29.. Your ticket seller would not have been able to access a refund from the venue because the event promoter decided to proceed with the event as-is. The fact that you did not purchase event insurance when you placed your order also means that you were unable to use that avenue for pursuing a refund.
In your situation, we at TL have tried our best to help by offering you a large discount off any new purchase through our website. The discount is equal to roughly half of your order total. This discount comes at a complete loss to ourselves. We made less than $80 off your initial order and are offering a discount $180 more than the money we made. We would lose money on any subsequent order you place. We're certainly willing to do that to try and assist you.
On another issue, the 125% guarantee you reference is a guarantee that applies to orders that aren't delivered due to laxity on the part of the ticket seller supplying the purchase. The guarantee does not apply to natural events. A ticket seller would not be responsible for a hurricane and so it wouldn't be fair for us to penalize them monetarily for that.
Despite the trouble, we sincerely hope that the discount offer assists you and that you and your family will be able to take advantage of it when life calms down a bit!

DO NOT BUY FROM TICKETLIQUIDATOR!!!!!!!!!!!!! I purchased two tickets for a concert for me and my sister. And a week from the concert date, we found better more tickets for better deals. We call to ask why the tickets were so inflated when we purchase the ticket and if we could get adjustment or refund, but all we got is NO and that is their policy. I would never make another purchase through them. If you want tickets for anything I would wait to purchase the ticket somewhere else.
Our Response on Wednesday, Nov 07, 2012 at 5:30 PM:
Hello Kim! Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback via our feedback tool. The tickets listed on our exchange are not actually owned, priced, and shipped by TL, but by independent sellers who list the tickets concerned. The various sellers who use our network also price tickets based on what they think the tickets are objectively worth on the free market. We at TL mention this fact throughout our website and also above every single event listing on our exchange (check out our "Lowdown"). Our basic role is to provide ticket sellers with the freedom to sell tickets and ticket buyers with the freedom to buy tickets. We are unable to monitor ticket availability from every single possible source for every single ticket on our exchange. We have over 82,000 events listed at any given time (!). We therefore encourage consumers to shop around and compare ticket prices as best they can.
In your case, we're sorry to hear if cheaper tickets were available from another source. We at TL want customers to receive the best deal possible when it comes to buying tickets - even if that means they don't buy through us. It's nevertheless true that we cannot unilaterally cancel a ticket order once it's placed on our exchange - a fact which we mention many times on our site. No person or company would feel comfortable listing tickets on our network if we could unilaterally consider an order cancelled and force the seller to give up all the money they made on the purchase.
Regardless, we're sorry for your unhappiness and have extended a discount to you on a future purchase. We hope you enjoy your event despite the ticketing confusions!

You called and told me my choice reservations tickets were no longer available, after I paid for them and you mention all tickets are guaranteed. I asked for my money back...You told me some story that tickets were no longer available...Why sell them then.
Our Response on Wednesday, Nov 07, 2012 at 5:23 PM:
Hello Juan! We're very sorry for your unhappiness with your ticket purchase. The ticket sellers on our website (and on our competitors' sites, too) generally have a small window of time during which they're free to accept or reject a ticket order. This is because the sellers listing tickets on our exchange are likely listing tickets (for higher prices) on other networks. It's therefore possible that they might sell a ticket group on one network before being able to remove it from our website. Ticket sellers are thus allowed a brief window during which they can accept or reject an order for X, Y, or Z reasons.It would appear that your seller was sold your tickets right before you purchased them and were subsequently unable to fulfill your purchase.
On that note, we take order fulfillment very seriously and we penalize any ticket seller that has to reject a customer's order. We also act to provide customers whose orders have been rejected with generous discounts off of a new order. We have done this in your case, too...
Please nevertheless know that order rejection is very, very rare through our exchange. Over 99.2% of all orders placed on our site are fulfilled by their respective sellers.
We hope your discount helps you to access new tickets to the event!

I hate the fact that I had to go thru a company like yours to get my tickets to Pink in Phx Az. I tried to go thru the venues website because they advertise thier seats for 50.00 -100.00 dollars. But of course you cant do that on thier website, I'll be taking that up with them. I needed 5 tickets together, I was not able to find any on your website at the time of purchase in any good seats for 100.00 a piece. What I ended up with from your site and company was "NOSE BLEED SEATS" for my daughters first concert experience. Now my wife says they are better seats available on your site for 100.00 a piece, but yeh, I'm stuck with the nose bleeds. I find it totally ridiculous and insane that decent seats go for 200.00 on up for a concert. I'd like to say I wont use your site again, but unfortunately I will probably have too, I will probably have to take out a small loan to buy good seats though.
Our Response on Monday, Oct 08, 2012 at 3:33 PM:
Hello Robert! Thanks for your feedback! We're sorry to hear about your unhappiness with ticket availability from the venue and also for your unhappiness with ticket pricing
In regards to ticket produce, the tickets you see listed for sale on our website are all being listed by hundreds of trusted ticket-selling companies. The prices for the tickets are all set by individual sellers based on what the sellers feel the tickets are worth and based on the individual overhead burdening the sellers from accessing the tickets concerned. The prices for tickets on our website therefore vary substantially from listing to listing and can also vary over time as an event's popularity (or the number of tickets available for the event) alters. We at TL can thus only promise tickets are available at certain prices at the time you purchase the tickets.
On the ticket availability issue, it isn't uncommon for customers to have difficult accessing event tickets (at least 'good' event tickets) from primary ticketing sources - for reasons other than ticket brokers. The percentage of tickets that go to ticket brokers is actually very small because ticket brokers don't purchase tickets differently from anyone else and because primary ticket sellers have built-in restrictions to prevent a mass buy-up of tickets. It's also true that, for many events, event promoters only release a small number of tickets to the public for sale and keep a huge chunk of the tickets for behind-the-scenes distribution to fan clubs, industry insiders, businesses, and so forth - so tickets often sell quickly because they're not as many of them onsale as many people think.
We're sorry for the confusion and sincerely hope your daughter enjoys her first concert! She's bound to have a great time no matter where she's seated! :-)

I was the victim of FALSE ADVERTISEMENT - i recently purchased tickets to a GaTech football game and the ticket liquidator site said it was a night game starting at 7pm. The information in the emails, and enclosed information with the tickets said the start time was 7pm. Once we got to Atlanta at 5pm we discovered the game was over.
I do not recommend using this service, advertising and sending incorrect times for events on tickets is inexcusable.
Our Response on Thursday, Oct 04, 2012 at 5:02 PM:
Hello Deborah! Thank you for leaving feedback in regards to your event experience. We're very sorry to hear about all the trouble you encountered with your order. We see here that our event experts did note a change in event time on September 24th. You would have received an email at that time from us with the event time change information. The game did indeed change from being an evening event to a 12pm event. It is occasionally true that sporting events change event time to accommodate team needs and/or television schedules.
In your case, it sounds like your spam folder may have trapped the email we sent off to you. We'd nevertheless be happy to extend you a discount code equal to your past order total. That way you'd be able to make sure your money is ultimately used to attend a fun event! Please just email our manager Molly at firstname.lastname@example.org.

I bought two tickets for me and my 84 year old grandmother to go see the celtic thunder at the wang theater in boston from your company. The morning of the event i could not find the tickets so i called ticket liquidator. I was on hold for nearly an hour and when i finally talked to someone they said they could not help me and told me to call the company that they had purchased the tickets from. I believe that since i bought the tickets off of ticket liquidator and i am their customer and they would feel some obligation to answer my questions and help me out but this was not the case. All i got from ticket liquidator was overpriced tickets, poor customer service, and an inbox filled with annoying emails.
Our Response on Wednesday, Sep 26, 2012 at 9:37 AM:
Hello Daniel! Thank you very much for your feedback! We're very sorry to hear about your unhappiness in regards to your order. We would not meant to make you fell put-off or otherwise ignored in regards to your tickets. The reason our representative referred you to the seller of your ticket order is because we at TL don't directly own, ship, or price the tickets on our site. We're rather like an Ebay for tickets that helps connect ticket buyers and ticket sellers and then subsequently monitors any resultant transactions. Your ticket seller is the actual one who originally accessed the tickets and so they're the only ones who might have any ability to access new copies of the tickets for you.
Added to that, it's also important to note that the ability to reaccess event tickets once they're lost depends substantially on the policy of the event promoter handling the event. Some tickets are not reprintable or re-accessible at all - some are. Your ticket seller would be the one who could provide further information for you about whether the tickets you purchased could be reaccessed by them. It is also good to speak with the seller directly because they might have had other ways of assisting you even if they couldn't reaccess the tickets for you.
In cases where ticket sellers are unable to assist customers, we're always happy to offer a generous discount on new tickets - but it actually looks like your seller was able to help out... which is great!

It has literally been over three months since I ordered my tickets and I have still yet to receive them. I emailed the seller because the expected delivery date changed... to the date of the concert. I have been assured that I will receive them in time, but I don't like not being informed especially since the ticket order has been processing since the end of May.
Our Response on Wednesday, Sep 05, 2012 at 5:16 PM:
Hello Logan! Thank you very much for your feedback. We're very sorry to hear about the problems and concerns you've experienced in regards to your ticket order through our site. It is indeed true that event tickets are not guaranteed to ship immediately after an order is placed. We mention this above every event listing in "The Ticket Liquidator Lowdown."
In your case, it also would appear that your ticket seller specifically mentioned on their ticket listing:
Seller's Note: Tickets will ship by Sep 24, 2012.
In short, your seller advertised a delayed shipdate prior to your order and they haven't since changed their delivery expectations. We're therefore unsure what you mean when you mention that the delayed shipdate changed.
Either way, we're sorry for the confusion, but your tickets are indeed guaranteed for the event! Please feel free to touch base again later in September if you have any additional questions or concerns about your ticket order.

I wouldn't necessarily say it's Ticket Luquidator's fault, but I will not purchase tix through here again. I was told over the phone that Sky Box seats were great seats on the main level so I purchased them. 10mins letter I get a call from a "restricted Number" on my cell from someone who does not identify himself. Even through the end of the call he did not identify himself, I only knew bc of the receipt I printed when I confirmed my order. I asked about the seats and were told they are in a box for 50 people at the abslute very top of the arena (nose bleed). The order said SA1, so I asked if this means the 1st row so that we can at least attempt to see with binoculars. He said NO - that's the Box #. He has no idea if there are seats. He thinks there may be some seats, but not 50 so we may have to stand!
WHAT?!?!?! How does he not know if he is selling these seats? He won't give me my money back and only offered to change them for $65 per tix. If he has these seats he should know exactly where they are and what they are like. That is absolutely ridiculous. Why would you, Ticket Liquidator allow someone like this to sell through your site? You should not.
I will NEVER USE THIS SERVICE OR ALLSTARTIC.COM, 19 Barnett Drive,North Haven, CT again.
Our Response on Wednesday, Sep 05, 2012 at 5:26 PM:
Hello Graceann! Thank you very much for your feedback the other day. We're very sorry to hear about the confusion in regards to your ticket order. We expect all of our ticket sellers to treat customers with infinite respect and to provide the high level of service that suits and defines our business expectations.
On that note, it seems that there may have been some confusion in regards to the tickets that you purchase.
You purchased tickets through us registered as being for the following:
Event: Zac Brown Band Sep 1 2012 7:00PM
Venue: Mohegan Sun Arena - CT in Uncasville, CT, United States of America
Section: SKY BOX Row: SA1
On that note, the seller is correct that you purchased box tickets and not actual reserved seating for the event concerned. Reserved seating means you get a ticket that puts you in a specific seat in a specific section and in a specific row of the venue. Box seating (or suite seating) usually involves a seller buying a suite or a box (ie: a private room) to which they can invite a certain number of individual event-goers. (For instance: many businesses may rent event boxes when they want to have a special meeting at a fun event.) Suites and boxes are almost always higher up in the venue - typically looking farther down on the action.
In your case, what you basically purchase is the right to access the Sky Box concerned rather than a specific seat in teh Sky Box. Boxes and suites usually also have some chairs provided by the venue. The difference is that you don't have a specific seat but would rather sit or stand wherever you could manage. That's the reason why the seller couldn't promise that you'd get an actual seat. Your likelihood of getting a seat is dependent on how soon you access the event. It seems you were under the impression that you actually purchased a ticket to a specific set of seats.
Either way, we're sorry for the confusion and will see what we can do to help you out!

I am very upset that I was charged $219.00 each for tickets with a face value of $50.00, plus a service fee of $81.04. You should post the face value of the tickets you are selling so the customer would know what they are getting. While your price was similar to prices found on other websites, not knowing the face value of the ticket made it difficult to determine how the price compared to the value. I don't think a scalper would have sold these tickets for the price you charged.
Our Response on Wednesday, Sep 05, 2012 at 5:43 PM:
Hello Mary Ellen! Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback on our site. We've addressed the face value and the service fee issue in the past (see below) but would like to address the issue you mentioned about not advertising the face value of tickets.
There are a few reasons for this...
First, we at TL don't directly own event tickets and therefore don't have inside knowledge about ticket face value. There are over 70,000 events listed on our exchange, too, so we couldn't possibly research the face value of every single ticket for every single event. We don't believe it would be a good use of our resources to spend time and money researching ticket face values - especially since we'd have to pass those costs off to consumers.
Second, the face value of a given ticket is not necessarily what your ticket seller paid to access the ticket. Sometimes venues part with tickets below face value (season ticket sales) and other times ticket sellers access event tickets from other third-party suppliers. The end result is that the face value of a ticket can give customers the wrong idea about the profit margins of their seller.
Third, the face value of a given ticket is not always representative of what that ticket is really worth. Almost any other product you can buy is priced by its owner based on the rule of supply and demand - market value and so forth. Event tickets have traditionally been stamped with a fiat price that bears little relation to the real worth of an event experience (from the customer's perspective).
And, of course, it's worth pointing out that hardly any product in the marketplace advertises its initial sale price... No one knows how much their local clothing store really paid for that dress in the window. No one knows how much their local florist really paid for those flowers.
The fact that the initial sale price of event tickets isn't printed for all to see is thus not an unusual thing.

I found and bought 2 tickets for my boyfriend and I. Of course, narturally and very obviously if someone buys 2 tickets they would ecxpect to recieve the seats to be next to one another. No not in my case, I have received 2 tickets with a seat between us. I didn't see anything on the notes that the seats would be separated and I don't see anything on the shipping invoice/paperwork indicating that. Whatever reason there is would not be acceptable in my opinion unless the shipper accidently sent ta wrong ticket wrong printout by mistake.
Our Response on Sunday, Aug 26, 2012 at 5:01 PM:
Hello Michele! Thanks so much for your feedback - but no worries! It is indeed true that all tickets on our site are guaranteed to be together unless explicitly stated otherwise. The tickets you received from your ticket seller should therefore be juxtaposed. Please nevertheless know that some venues label seats in odd or even chunks rather than straightly consecutive. So, for instance, one side of the venue may contain only odd- or even-numbered seating. This results in seats (2, 4, 6 - etc) that appear to be separated but that are actually together. There’s no need to worry about the consecutivity of our seats in such situations.
In your case, we checked and your event is in a theater venue (theater venues tend to have the odd- and even-numbered seating). You can double-check with the venue, but you should be all set!
