Lakers Pre-Sale Ticket Victory for 2007-08 Season and a Free Code!

One of the most popular and favorite articles of readers of this blog was my article last year on how you can get Los Angeles Lakers tickets at face value. (Post here) Well for those of you who paid attention to my post back in January, today was the big day. Today was the Los Angeles Lakers season ticket holders pre-sale with Ticketmast for the 2007-08 NBA season.

If I look back at my experience last year, my ticket stash for Lakers games last year did not turn out anywhere like what I anticipated. First, Ticketmaster had and issue where a large number of folks could not access the pre-sale of the famed NBA tickets for 30 minutes. Those, like me -- missed the best games because of that -- meaning, only tickets were in the 300 level for game like the Phoenix Suns, Cleveland Cavaliers, and San Antonio Spurs were gone. I was left with a bunch of games like the Boston Celtics, Golden State Warriors, and the Portland Trailblazers. Nothing to write home about. The only saving grace? Ticketmaster refunded me $120 worth of fees for the 6 games I ended up with tickets for.

However, this year was different. Rathering that being left out in the cold by Ticketmaster, I was able to score two tickets to the top NBA - Lakers game this year. Here is what I ended up with, and I could have gotten more!

  • 11/16/07 - Detroit Pistons
  • 12/13/07 - San Antonio Spurs
  • 12/30/07 - Boston Celtics
  • 01/17/08 - Phoenix Suns
  • 01/27/08 - Cleveland Cavaliers
  • 03/02/08 - Dallas Mavericks
  • 03/23/08 - Golden State Warriors
  • 04/04/08 - Dallas Mavericks
  • 04/13/08 - San Antonio Spurs

The seats, for the most part are all in the Premier (PR) section, or the 100's level at Staples Center, generally what most folks pay well over face value for -- especially for these particular Lakers games.

Once again, the Lakers Season Ticket waitlist paid off for me. If you get on the wait-list, not only do you get a chance for these pre-sale tickets and codes, but you also get last minute deals and games and early pre-sale for playoff tickets!

It's the best $100 you'll spend. Also, there is another Los Angeles Lakers Pre-sale on Friday at 12:00pm -- if you are on the Los Angeles Lakers list, you should have received a pre-sale invitation as well as a code.
