I have not used any of those services, honestly I did not understand how they worked.  Viola Bowers  KY

To see a show like Mamma Mia or Mystere, I have paid top[ dollar because I wanted our group to have a great experience.

But for some shows I have gone and just purchased tickets for a review show and had a great time , I just don't want to spend my precious vacation time on long lines. In NYC I get the half-priced Broadway show tickets frequently and have no problem.  Art Stackpole  Surprise AZ

 Yes, I have purchased half price and discounted tickets. They were well worth the wait on line and the trip to the hotel to exchange the voucher ticket for a "real ticket". I would absolutely continue to purchase tickets in this manner.  bonnie perlmutter  mount sinai, ny

Yes, I have used half price ticket broker. It was very simple, quick and got really good seats. I would definitely use it again. I am coming to Vegas in December and plan on using it again then.  Cynthia Zelenack  Drums, PA

* Last trip to Vegas I used one of those brokers, the price was great, but taking  taxi from my casino to their location, then standing in line for 50 minutes was not enjoyable.  Probably will not use again, my precious time in Vegas is not going to be spent standing in lines.  Roger Shack  WV

*  The pricing is good and the idea is great to buy left over seats, but I have used in other cities and Vegas and the weather of standing in a line to buy a ticket is a joke.  The inconvenience was far more than the savings.  Thomas Kincade NY

Have not used this before but plan to give it a try when visiting Vegas for the first time Dec. 15 - 19.   Susan Puls  Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin

*   Yes.  John And Ingrid Pfeiffer  Riverdale, New York

 I have used half price ticket brokers several times to save money on shows while in Vegas as well as other cities. It helps to have a number of shows that you would like to see and be flexible about what is available for that night. Also, don't expect the most popular, limited engagement shows to be available. Your best bet are the many "ongoing" shows such as George Wallace, Clint Homes, Anthony Cools or even some of the big production shows on a week-night. Be Flexible!  Bill McDonough  Boston, MA

Half Price Ticket Brokers are an excellent way to see some of the "lower end" shows in Vegas. Get there early and enjoy a nice selection of shows from a variety of casinos. Don't expect to find Cirque, Celine, or other high dollar tickets at these brokers. (Or if you do they will be discounted approximately 10% instead of 50%) Also take advantage of being a repeat customer. Most Half Price Ticket Brokers offer VIP line passes and discounts on the follow day after you buy tickets!  David Wade  Sugarcreek OH

Great idea.....& have bought half price tickets.....didn't like the long line to purchase the tickets.  Mardelle Farrow  Post Falls, ID

*   I have not used a half price ticket booth in Vegas. My husband and I plan to be there in December and will look to see how it works and what shows are actually available. Now that the shows have increased in price, we haven't been going to any shows the last 3 times we visited Vegas. Hopefully, there are 1/2 price tickets available for a show or 2 that we like this time around. I am not afraid to purchase tickets at the 1/2 price booth. Spoke to many about the tickets before.  Nancy DeAngelis  Norristown/Pa

Have visited Las Vegas twice. Both times My wife and I stayed for seven days. Once at the Jockey Club, once at the Polo towers. Each time we used 2 for 1 coupons for meals, shows, and gambling. Stretching our money long enough to last a week. We took in Crazy Girls, V, X, Folies, Jubliee. Ate at the Hilton, Rivera, Sahara, Alladin, Green Valley Ranch.  Ernest Hodges

I wouldn't pay full or half price to see 90% of the preformers out there today. sooner or later they will have a tv appearence if there anybody. Ralph DiDomonic

*   never pay full price! I usually use a 2 for 1 coupon from tourist magazine. The half price tickets work well too, especially when there are an uneven number in your party. I used them on my last visit for 3 of us. Good selection of shows and broker attendants are helpful.  Sue Bovee  White Bear Lake, MN

Yes, we always buy 1/2 price tkts in Las Vegas and New York. Why not? Same show, just pay less. Its very pricey otherwise.  Rosie Sherman  Toronto Canada

If a person is lucky enough to find a reputable ticket broker, and can buy tickets for the day of show performance for half ... why not? However, you have to be in the right place at the right time, and take your chances that the ticket is a good one. Would rather that the theater offer the same deal at their box office - safer and easier! That's been my experience; have never been disappointed because I can see exactly where seat I am purchasing is located, and if bad, I can complain!  Carmie Frey Henderson, NV
