    2 Hillside Tickets for UNI @ Iowa State

    Looking to get 2 hillside tickets to watch ISU and UNI play. I am not willing or able to "pay market value" like so many others. Will try to scalp at the game if no sellers here. $55 for a pair. Thanks.

    Priced gouged? Good luck finding two hill sides for 55 Dollars. Supply and Demand man..... I buy season ticket so I don't get put in this position. I think 100 bucks for hillsides is stupid as well, but our team is creating that demand. A very good problem to have

    Exactly. You had all summer to buy season tickets if you wanted to get into UNI for cheap. The market is above face right now. Thats not 'gouging' that just is what it is when supply is smaller than demand, just like it wasnt screwing over a ticketholder when they couldnt even sell tickets for face (hell, some games you couldnt give them away!) to a lot of games just a few years ago.

    The only way you are getting a pair of hillside tickets for $55 is if you know that person. You're basically asking someone to pay for almost half your ticket.

    Also as an Iowa state fan you should be happy to see tickets going for double and triple face value. The fan support for this year has been awesome!

    Re: 2 Hillside Tickets for UNI @ Iowa State

    What I really hate is when I go to a grocery store to buy a steak and they are charging over $9.00/lb. I know they bought that cow from the wholesaler for $1.50/lb. How dare they price gouge me. Where do they get off making a profit? I'll just wait until meat is past it's expiration date and buy it then.

    Price gouging is when one person holds the entire supply of something that is NEEDED to be obtained by the purchaser and demand a price higher than what the product is actually worth. Free market capitalism is when many sellers have a product and have a price set at a point where purchasers have a choice and are willing buy at that price.

    I believe many people are selling tickets and many are purchasing. Nobody is forcing anybody to over pay for tickets. That is just what they think they are worth.

    You have a every right to set your purchase price at and try to get the tickets at that price. I don't think $55-$60 for a pair of tickets is a bad goal to shoot for and I think you might be able to get them for that on game day, but I don't think it's fair to call people price gougers if people are willing to pay more for tickets than that.

    I'm not trying to bash on you personally, but it seems like there has been a lot of bantering back and forth on this the last couple weeks.

    I know, I know, "Thank you" and You're welcome.

    Apple stock was $169 5 years ago, and it is over $500 today. I wish I would have bought more stock 5 years ago.

    Again, best of luck to you. Go Cyclones.

    Edit: Thanks for changing your OP verbage. I will stop harassing you now.

    The secondary market value for hillside against UNI right now is around $50 so yes you are. I sold my extra pair for $110 with minimal effort. That might drop come gameday or it might not.

    Re: 2 Hillside Tickets for UNI @ Iowa State

    Wait until a few minutes till kickoff if need be. Looking at some of the prices for tickets there will be some left holding the bag because they are a little too greedy. As a Cyclone fan I don't have a problem selling my season ticket for face value but going out and trying to make a profit, a profit ISU doesn't see, out of my ticket goes against my grain. Obviously others feel different but it leaves a bad taste trying to profit off fellow Cyclone fans. If you get what you gave for it I think you should feel good.

    The problem is while some will be able to get a deal close to kickoff, if a large number tried to do that there would either be no supply or the sellers would see the demand and prices would go up on location. And yes, if you look at just the currently listed stubhub prices some of them are priced way too high, but then again some of those might not be serious sales. A number of fans put up their tickets at 'price at which its worth it for me to watch the game on tv' pricing. They plan on going, but if someones willing to throw them enough cash they'll change their mind. Those tickets wont be available at fire-sale rates. Also when you look at the actual sales figures, tickets are selling at a decent clip at the 50-70\ticket rate right now.

    And who says ISU doesnt see that profit? Id bet a lot of people who sell tickets return money to ISU in other ways.
