Default Pre season tickets Cowboys

I saw a few at Cheaptickets.com for $8 (upper level, of course).

Is it for real?
Has anybody used that site before?

Also, I saw $5 ticket for the Cowboys - Bengals game the week ahead of the Texans game.

The parking costs many times more than that, LOL!

I don't know what preseason tickets go for in Houston, but when I lived in Dallas, it wasn't uncommon to be able to get a ticket for $5 or so up to the date of the game from just about any major ticket reseller.

The NFL should be embarrassed for charging season ticket holders full price for preseason games...

This game sounds like the one that starters will probably play for a quarter, so I probably won't make that trip. With the video board, even the cheap seats will be ok for a preseason. Actually for those who like standing, the party pass would be better. I won't decide until mid July what I will be doing with my tickets, but any info that I think would be interesting, I will pass along.

Looks like you have the easy access to the team shop. The only downside to my location is the team shop is on the opposite side. We park at Jack in the Box on Collins.

I have family in Dallas who will probably use tickets for the Texans preseason.

Hey Paul, I got your FB message. Wish I could have helped you, they sold pretty quick. Let me know next year if you need any games.

Some people are probably unloading the worthless preseason tickets at bargain basement because $8 is better than nothing. But, who really will even be sitting in nose bleed when over half the stadium will be empty? Sounds better to come up with a set ticket price $1000 for 10 tickets @ $100per instead of $1000 for 8 tickets at $125 per. Selling the preseason as a package somehow minimizes the true sticker shock.

The owners already made their money on the pre-season games when they sold season tickets to buyers. That was part of the package and this is why you see people selling them for super duper cheap.

They might turn 2 of the preseason games into regular season games (extending the season from 16 games to 18 games) but I doubt they will get rid of the preseason entirely when they are still making loads of money off of those tickets.

Your argument makes no sense. The only reason you have preseason tickets to sell (especially if times are hard) is because you are a season ticket holder. $8 bucks for a preseason game (taking a $42 loss) makes zero difference financially compared to the $500 commitment for the season. Whohoo, for 2 seats I spent $1000 and I am so desperate getting $32 back for the preseason is a life saving deal. Might want to reconsider the financial planning because you might as well go to the game. Now you lost $168 bucks on games you didn't get to see.

Your theory also doesn't fly since folks have been giving away or selling preseason tickets at a severe discount throughout the existence of the Texans and I am sure that is true with other teams as well. Obviously that includes a much broader time period than recent economic events (that and Texas has been least effected by those events).

I'm only speaking for myself on this response. My tickets aren't on impulse and I have made significant sacrifices in part time jobs to pay for my entertainment. If something comes up that I can no longer afford ticket on a year by year basis, I will sell the entire season ticket hopefully for a profit. Then if I can afford one of two games I would purchase in the cheap seats. My Cowboys tickets are $125 a pop, and even if I sold at a reduced rate, it would be nowhere near $8, which IMO would be pointless. In that situation I would take a slight reduction or gift a relative or charity. But, an opposing fan will not be relaxing in my seat for 8 bucks. I will probably place 2 or 4 tickets on Ticket Exchange for the season's opener against the Giants "Hookem?".

Preseason tickets suck, it doesn't matter what team or market you follow. I am in the Bullpen for the Texans and I look at it at $87.50 for 8 games, not 10 games. I know it won't happen, but I wish they would just charge season ticket buyers for the "regular season"...... and then sell the preseason to whoever wanted to buy them. Just my 2 cents......

My 2 cents as well. First game against Miami will probably showcase starters for a quarter, and three quarters to look at who will possibly make the final 53 for the same ticket price as the Texans vs. the Colts on Sunday night football. That is a problem with me, but I know if I want the tickets that's the price I pay.

It would be nice to have a fixed price for the eight regular games, and fill stadium preseason at a discount for regulars as well as those who can't afford the ticket price for the regular but still get a feel for the atmosphere of professional football, somewhat. Of course that would decrease the yearly Forbes value/profits slightly.
