AFTER: Moms want your time, not money, this Mother’s Day, poll finds

If you’re planning on buying Mommy tickets this Mother’s Day weekend or hoping to catch a concert this summer, we’ve found a few secrets to save you money.

“Particularly in the summer, people are looking to travel and see their favorite bands and artists, so the prices are high,” said Rebecca Gramuglia of TopCashBack.com.


To reduce these escalating costs, Rebecca Gramuglia of TopCashBack.com suggests following the artist’s or band’s website or social media pages.

“Presales really are your best friend. It’s going to give you the pre-show ground to get the best seats you want at the price you’re hoping for,” she explained.

You can also check out ticketing sites, such as Ticketmaster, StubHub, and SeatGeek. When buying tickets online, use a cashback site, such as Rakuten or TopCashBack.

“We have over 7,000 retailers on site, places like Ticketmaster, StubHub, Expedia, Hotels.com,” she said. “If you make a whole trip out of it, you can get a percentage of your purchase back.”

Use credit cards that offer pre-sale access to concert tickets.

“American Express or Citi cardholders will get increased presale access, as well as cash back on your purchase, depending on your card terms,” Gramuglia said.

And plan ahead. Find cheap parking options that you can book in advance on sites like SpotHero and SpotAngels, as well as research cheap hotels and restaurants using sites like TripAdvisor or Yelp.

Concert promoter Live Nation is hosting a Concert Week event through May 10, allowing you to purchase concert tickets for $25 for up to 3,700 shows across the country.
