San Diego Padres tickets can certainly get pricey. That doesn’t mean fans have to blow their summer savings trying to catch a game. Here are the top 5 best ways to save money on Padres tickets this summer.

#1. Head to a Weekday Game

Not too surprisingly, Padres games that fall on a weekend are almost always more expensive than those that happen during the week. For example, tickets start at just $6 to see the Padres’ athletics away against the Brewers on Thursday, August 9. But minimum ticket prices will jump to $32 when they take on the Phillies at home Saturday, August 11. The time of the game is another factor that contributes to price. Typically, afternoon games are the most affordable.

#2. Utilize SeatGeek’s Deal Score Feature

When spending hard-earned cash on San Diego Padres tickets, their fans no doubt want to make sure they’ll get their money’s worth. SeatGeek developed Deal Score to help sports fans save money. The tool works by ranking the value of a ticket based on historical prices for the team and venue, the expected sightline from the section, the row location, and the quality of the other available tickets for the event. By using this feature, fans can be sure they get the best bang-for-their-buck when purchasing Padres tickets.

#3. Wait Until the Last Minute

Don’t mind living on the edge? Waiting for last-minute tickets might be your best money-saving option. Just like supermarkets mark down food about to expire, sellers hoping to offload tickets will often sell them at a discount right before the game. If you don’t mind the lower inventory, you can definitely save some cash. This might not be a good option for someone buying tickets for a large group of people. Fewer remaining tickets mean it will be hard to guarantee everyone can sit together.

#4. Check Out the Away Games

Yes, it’s often more exciting to see your favorite team on their local turf. Still, choosing to travel for games can save fans some serious cash. Currently, the Padres’ away games are about $10-$50 less than their games at Petco Park. By saving money on away games, that just means you’ll have more cash to splash the next time the Padres face-off with the Dodgers.. or extra cash on a fun trip. Who doesn’t love options?
