Chicago Cubs tickets can be pricey. Luckily you don’t have to break the bank to see the big game. Here are 5 great tips to help you save money on Cubs tickets this summer.

#1. Catch a Weekday Game

It’s true Cubs games that fall on a weekend are almost always more expensive than those that happen during the week. For example, it’ll only cost $11 to see the Braves against the Pittsburgh Pirates on their Thursday, August 16 game, the cheapest tickets will cost $49 when they take on the Cincinnati Reds at home on Saturday, August 25.

Another thing to keep in mind is the game time, another factor that often affects ticket prices.

#2. Utilize Deal Score By SeatGeek

When buying Cubs tickets, fans will probably want to make sure they’re getting the best savings possible. Deal Score is SeatGeek developed to help rank the value of a ticket based on historical prices for the team and venue, the row location, the expected sightline from the section, and the quality of the other available tickets for the event. Using the Deal Score feature will ensure that Cubs fans get the most bang-for-their-buck when buying tickets.

#3. Buy at the Last Minute

You know how supermarkets try to get rid of food at discount prices right before they expire? Something similar happens with tickets to events right before the big day. Sellers hoping to make a profit will mark down ticket prices in an effort to make a profit, resulting in savings for patient fans. It’s worth noting this might not be the best option if you’re buying tickets for a large group. A smaller inventory could mean it’s really tough to get tickets allowing everyone to sit together.

#4. Check Out the Away Games

It’s true that catching a game at Wrigley Field is the ideal for Cubs fans, but choosing to travel for games has its money-saving perks, too! Currently, the starting prices for tickets to the Cubs’ away games average about $20 less than their games at home. It’s also best to consider the opponent. Sometimes prices rise–or fall–based on who the Cubs are up against.
