Like TicketMaster and Ticketfly, Goldstar is an e-commerce site that offers customers tickets to live entertainment. Some of the types of entertainment events that members can get tickets to on Goldstar include theater, comedy, performing arts, sports, music, rodeos, wine tasting, sushi making and other events. Unlike its competitors, though, Goldstar is not a ticket broker. Instead, it is a website that allows venues to list any unsold seats on its website at discounted prices so that the venues don't ever have to experience any unsold seats. This helps ensure that entertainment events are always packed out, even if a few of the tickets are sold at discounted prices.
The way that Goldstar works is relatively simple. You simply sign up for a free account, and create a profile. Members can sign up with their email accounts, or they can use their Facebook or Twitter accounts to sign up. When you sign up, you can connect with other friends who are signed up to Goldstar, and you can even invite your friends to sign up as well. There are numerous benefits to connecting with friends on Goldstar. Perhaps the most prominent benefit is that you can see the entertainment events that your friends are going to, and if you all wish to go to the same event, then when you purchase available tickets at the event, then you can request to be seated by your friends.
Although Goldstar doesn't assign the seats to members when they purchase tickets at an event, Goldstar does guarantee that you'll be seated in the section for which you bought seats. Furthermore, if you purchase a group of seats, then all those seats will be grouped together, and if you later decided that you need to add an additional seat to your group, then all you have to do is sign into your account and click on the 'Add a Ticket' link to get another seat by your current seats. In this manner, Goldstar makes it extremely easy to manage your tickets and seating all from one convenient account.
Plus, after you've attended an event, you can get onto your Goldstar account and submit a review of the event that your friends and followers can see. Many members find this feature to be extremely advantageous because it allows them to see what fellow Goldstar members are saying about certain entertainment events before they invest in them themselves. When you choose to follow another Goldstar member, you'll be able to see all his or her reviews as well as the entertainment events that he or she has attended.
Additionally, Goldstar is also beneficial for those people who have special needs because once you purchase your tickets, all you have to do is contact Goldstar and inform them of any special needs that you have, and they'll get in contact with the entertainment venue for you to ensure that your special needs are met. This cuts down on the amount of time and hassle that you have to go through to ensure that you receive seating arrangements that accommodate your specific condition.
To top it all off, if you're looking for events on a certain date or tickets to a certain venue, then you can choose to place a 'Star' next to your selection. Placing a 'Star' next to a selection makes it so that you'll receive an email notification when your selection becomes available so that you can book your seats as soon as possible before they're gone. Additionally, all members of Goldstar are automatically signed up for the Goldstar weekly newsletter that notifies you of any upcoming events as well as provides you with any special information that you might need to know. You can also elect to be signed up for 'Featured Today' emails that are sent out numerous times a week and feature the most notable events, special prices and even complimentary tickets being given away in your area.
For those members who want to be the very first to know about everything going on with Goldstar, you can sign up to become a Red Velvet member. Red Velvet members get the first look at everything happening on the site throughout the week before traditional members ever receive their weekly newsletters. Red Velvet memberships come complete with sneak previews on Monday nights as well as various other perks and special discounts that regular members don't have access to.
Additionally, all members can also sign up for a special email list that is sent out usually once or twice a month and contains information about any special contests and chances to win tickets to popular events. Even without winning any contests, though, tickets obtained on Goldstar are said to be at least half price or better off their original purchase prices, which is one of the primary reasons that many people choose to join Goldstar.
When you choose to become a member of Goldstar, you'll not only get to enjoy tickets to popular entertainment events, but you'll also get to save money at the same time.
