Default Preseason tickets wanted. Texans vs Vikings

I am looking for some field level sideline preseason tickets for the Texans vs Vikings game. Yea I know, PRESEASON! My little brother's birthday is on that day and he wants to go to the game. I already gave my tickets away to my brother, because he wanted to use them as part of a promotion for his store. If there is anyone that isn't asking a ridiculous amount for the tickets let me know. I saw some for $30 on stubhub but they were the by the tunnel, I was hoping for something closer to the 50 yard line. If you have anything at a reasonable price let me know. But I am guessing the $30 tickets are probably the best deal I will get.

What's considered ridiculous?

Ridiculous is 50% of face value for me. Preseason tickets just aren't worth anything in my opinion. I was thinking something around $30-$50 should get me pretty close to the 50 yard line, but I might be wrong about that.

I see. I agree that preseason tickets aren't "worth" the same as regular season, however, if you want a ticket from the Texans organization the cost is the same as a regular season ticket. Those start at about $45 for seats in the 600's probably in a location near obstructed views and not mid field. Field level end zone seats are $79.

There are ticket holders that aren't interested in attending preseason games and may choose to give them away or sell at a discount to recoup a part of their investment. After looking at tickets available on Ticketmaster today, all I can say preseason and all, I am sure glad I own PSLs and season tickets.

I have Bullpen tickets for the game I will sell for $80 each, 8 rows from the field. If you can get tunnel lower lever tickets for $30 you need to buy them.

This is my third year as a season ticket holder, so I know about the pricing of preseason games. I hate the fact we have to pay full price for tickets and they are worth nothing, at least mine are (600 level) which is why I just gave them to my brother. I know a lot of people give preseason tickets away, which is why I thought I come and ask on the forum before buying from stubhub.

There are already some bullpen tickets for around 20-30 bucks on stubhub. They are about 30 rows up though.

It's probably best if I just wait it out, until the gameday gets closer, I'm sure people will be just about giving the tickets away by then.

If you can get Bullpen seats for $20-$30 for ANY GAME, you need to buy them.

I have been in the BullPen once, it was...an experience. But I really want to be around midfield. But I might just jump on this oppurtunity now. Thanks

Just buy the cheapest seats you can find and move around to where you want to because those games always have a lot of empty seats down low.
