It’s been a huge week for Grateful Dead and Phish fans alike. The announcement of Grateful Dead’s 50th anniversary reunion concert over Fourth of July weekend featuring Trey Anastasio just took everyone’s summer concert expectations through the roof. And to give it even more hype, pre-order tickets had to be purchased old-school style with decorated mail-order envelopes and money orders. Who’s even used a money order before? With an overwhelming number of submissions, the mail-order officially closed today a 10 am, just two days after it began. With Instagram and Twitter, Dead art has been plastered all over social media the past couple days giving fans a chance to see instantly what everyone else had created. What happens if you don’t get those “I need a miracle” mail-order tickets? CashorTrade.org. I’ve been a huge fan of CashorTrade.org since we discovered each other over social media. It’s really unbelievable what ticket scalpers can get away with for selling tickets. Take for instance $1300 Fleetwood Mac tickets at the Forum in Los Angeles just this past November. CashorTrade.org is the world’s first social ticketing platform where fans buy, sell, & trade tickets for face value.
How it works: Members reply to enter a discussion about a ticket sale or trade then commit to secure it. They post payment via PayPal, post shipping & tracking info, & finalize with leaving each other a review. Gaining reviews on a member’s profile helps them score tickets in the future as it builds creditability & strengthens the community. Super easy and win-win for all knowing that you’re getting tickets for face value and it’s obviously good karma to not be ripping someone off to profit money on a ticket you’re not gonna use. And with the CashorTrade.org app, you can score tickets anywhere, even at the venue! And for $2/month you can become a CashorTrade.org gold member and receive text & email notification the second tickets are posted. Logged into the site or the app, gold members also see posts 10 minutes before others.
A fellow Phish and Dead fan, Brando of CashorTrade.org started a Dead 50 Facebook group for Face Value Tickets specifically for the Fare Thee Well shows. Our own Team Fun group that we’ve been rolling with to Phish and other festival shows over the past year sent us their amazing mail order envelopes….
OMG, Paul, is the skeleton grabbing his crotch?!
