Tampa Bay Rays tickets can get pricey. That doesn’t mean you have to blow your summer savings just to catch a game. Here are 5 helpful tips to save money on Rays tickets this summer.

#1. Check Out a Weekday Game

With baseball fans more likely to have a day off during the weekend, it’s no surprise that weekend ticket prices tend to cost more. If you’re hoping to save money on Rays tickets, a weekday game might be your best bet. For example, the weekend away games against the Red Sox cost $30-$40 dollars more than midweek away matchups against the Yankees.

It’s also important to consider the game’s starting time, as that can impact ticket prices, too!

#2. Try SeatGeek’s Deal Score Feature

Rays fans will want to make sure they’re getting their money’s worth on tickets. Deal Score is a tool developed by SeatGeek 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. By using this feature, Rays fans will ensure that they’re getting the most bang-for-your-buck when purchasing tickets.

#3. Wait Until the Very Last Minute

If you’re willing to wait until just before the big game, you might be able to get a great deal on your tickets. Sellers routinely drop ticket prices before an event to offload unsold tickets. The inventory might not be so great, but the potential for a discount is high. It’s important to remember this works best when you aren’t buying tickets for a large group. The fewer tickets on hand to choose from, the less likely everyone would be able to sit together.

#4. Head to the Away Games

Unsurprisingly, Rays fans love the chance to watch their team’s athletics at Tropicana Field. But choosing to see an away game has its cost-saving advantages. Starting ticket prices for the Sunday, August 12 game against the Blue Jays are about $20 less than tickets for the Sunday, August 26 home game against Red Sox. Not only would you save money on tickets, you could use those savings to embark on a Canadian sightseeing adventure.
