National Tax Reports Lists 5 Ways to Save on Sporting Events

“Five Ways to Save on Your Next Sporting Event” details how people can save money if they decide to venture out to see their favorite team in person. It reveals that people can avoid spending a fortune. Five tips are listed with detailed explanations of each.

First, the author recommends buying cheap seats. Cheap seating, promotional tickets, and student or military discounts are often available. Promotions are just one way to save but there are other ways explained in this section as well. Other tips here include picking up tickets in person, which avoids shipping and other fees.

The article also suggests attending mid-week games, which are less expensive than weekend tickets. Pricing also depends on the team and the opponent they are playing against. Another perk is having a selection of seats in a less crowded stadium.

Other cost-saving tips include finding alternatives to stadium parking or taking public transportation. In addition, spectators can save buy purchasing souvenirs online or at an online sports apparel store , rather than at the game area. A few other suggestions about buying team-related jerseys are provided by the author.  Also, it’s suggested to eat at home rather than at the event, unless there are food promotions that cut down on the prices.

Lastly, the author mentions football ticket tax deductions. He explains the IRS offers limited deductions for entertainment and gifts, with a link to more information on entertainment tax deductions from H&R Block.
