Sitting With Friends Doesn't Have to Be a Privilege

One of the biggest obstacles to enjoying live entertainment is financial: tickets often cost a lot, and few people want to take the risk of paying up front for a whole package of tickets so friends can sit together at an event. I just found out that now has a solution for both those problems.

The site, which I've written about several times before, offers half-price (and free) tickets to popular live entertainment events in more than 20 major U.S. cities for sports lovers, theater goers, and performing arts fans to enjoy.

And now it also has a ‘Sit with Friends’ feature that lets people buy their half-price Goldstar tickets separately from the group but still be automatically seated together…eliminating the days of buying big expensive packages of tickets for a girls night out or a trip with your friends to see your favorite sports team, not knowing if you’ll ever be paid back.

The Sit with Friends feature is easy to use. After members (registration is free) purchase a ticket to an event they get a personalized URL to share on Facebook or via email. When the URL is used to buy other tickets, Goldstar automatically groups all the seats together— great news for people who are eager to go out more often and socialize with friends, but don’t want to spend a fortune to do it.
