[Expired] Retailmenot: $50 off $100 at Stubhub [Today Only]

Deal has expired, view more Retailmenot deals here.

The Offer

Direct Link to offer

  • Retailmenot is offering $50 cashback with a $100 Stubhub purchase.

 

The Fine Print

  • Excludes gift cards.
  • Purchases must meet the minimum amount before fees, taxes, shipping, and handling and after any other discounts are applied.
  • Limited quantities available.
  • Turn off all ad-blocking software.
  • Provide your email address so we know where to send updates. (I think this just means that you have to signup first for a Retailmenot account.)
  • Once approved, the cash back reward will be available to be redeemed from your RetailMeNot wallet 45 days from purchase date.

Our Verdict

Retailmenot comes out with some nice deals semi-regularly. Looks like this is today only, Monday, January 28th.

Hat tip to my friend Mike

Any advice on how to make this a moneymaker? Service fees for two ~$50 tickets on Stubhub come out to about $30 which makes me nervous even with a possible $50 back

Historically, retailmenot has not hard enforced the ‘no gift cards’ rule, although this offer is different than the others that we have seen where the cash back was also offered for in-store purchases as well. I’d imagine if you tried to go the gift card route on this offer, it is much more likely to be enforced, so unless you’re feeling particularly risky today for a 50% discount on stubhub gift cards, I’d imagine it’d be hard to turn this into a moneymaker.

Bummer. No concerts I’ve had my eye on, and tough to say what tickets would be able to resale for higher. Probably will pass on this

I was thinking about possible resale, but I’m not sure how viable that option would be. Most tickets that are good for resale are typically hot tickets in the first place which are more expensive than just $100 to begin with. The best goal would be to find tickets as close to $100 as possible, but with the flat service fee, it just doesn’t seem viable.

How does retailmenot cash back work?

Can you redeem this offer twice on one account in separate purchases?

No

I did 3 same GNC offers in one day last time, all pending now. I believe you can only do 3 offers at one seller in a month.

Will this work buying tickets with StubHub GC credit or do I have to use a CC? I have $300 worth of credit on my account to use up at some point and could use this opportunity to buy some MLB tickets for the upcoming summer.

Same question. Otherwise I was buying tickets anyway, and I will BTDPYWTS

I just bought a $100 StubHub GC via Gyft and used it for $116 payment. However, I don’t think the offer is going to work because the “purchase” amount comes out as $16 since the $100 GC is considered a “Discount”, which is probably the amount that StubHub sends to RetailMeNot. Should’ve just used a CC, but we’ll see.

AJS

Would have to agree with this reasoning, I didn’t put enough time into a dummy booking before I posted that. In any case I chickened out and my total purchase price is still over $100 after the same “discounts” that Carl mentioned, so I will not be the data point I wanted to see.

When buying from StubHub I always use a cashback portal, and more often than not I make at least a portion of the payment via SH gift cards and/or SH Fan Codes. When getting the cashback I’ve NEVER gotten it on the full purchase price but rather only on the portion of the purchase that I actually paid for using a credit card.

Stubhub will report the ticket prices before fees regardless of gift cards used. It should work for you

It’s crazy they charge $30 fee and then another $6 fee to the buyer. This is on top of the fee they charge sellers. Definitely would not buy from them unless I’m desperate. 🙄

Is there another resale market you prefer? Obviously it’s usually best to buy direct from the ticket office, but assuming I need to buy from the secondary market, I generally have found Stubhub reasonable compared to other sites (Vividseats, Seatgeek, etc.)

TickPick has no buyer’s fees.

Is the service fee considered as handling?

Jeff

Yes. I would go by ticket price straight up before all the tacked on fees.

This was huge for me. Anderson Paak has been sold out in Chicago for months. The price was perfect at $105, totaling $135 after fees. $85 bucks isn’t a great deal, but certainly better than any other option. Craigslist sellers were only skeezy 2nd hand ticket seller companies. We doubled up with Player 2 as well. Thanks DoC!

Also, try not to be a schmuck and do this as a moneymaker for reselling. Scalpers are loathsome individuals. Just one man’s opinion…

William Charles

Enoy Paak!

RetailMeNot has pretty good deals every Monday. They had $15 back on $30 at Barnes & Noble and $15 back on $30 at Staples. Sorry forgot to share. I have an alarm now set for every Monday to check RetailMeNot Monday Deals.

William Charles

Thanks, please share in future <3

Do you have to buy all $100 in one transaction or can you buy in multiple transactions where it adds up to $100+? Looking to buy tickets to two separate events and totals would be $66 and $45 (before taxes, fees ,etc)

One transaction.

Well that sucks. Deal is useless. Thanks.
