Submission + - SPAM: ZigaBid A Bid Website to Negotiate Tickets

zigabid writes: "This is a story about Zigabid and front row ZZ Top seats at The Shoreline in Mountain View, but it starts with Rush.
On Monday August 9th 2001 at 3pm I got news that my grandfather just died. At 3:30 pm my old friend John calls me up and says he has an extra ticket to Rush at the Shoreline."

Submission + - Craigslist is a great one-stop hub for many things (

zigabid writes: "Craigslist is a great one-stop hub for many things including concert, sports, and event tickets.

zigabid writes: The network allowed me to speak a couple of sellers whose tickets I was interested in. I settled on tickets to the seats in Field box at last and bought them at a discount to their face value price. Tickets were delivered on time; in fact my grandson received them & I still remember the smile on his face. Since then Zigabid’s been my only place to buy tickets. And I recommend both naive and savvy users to use this network for ticket trading.
