I know what you are thinking. "But how can you offer tickets to a game that isn't on sale yet and you aren't even sure will involve the Celtics?" I'm glad you asked!
OptionIt is an official partner with the Boston Celtics but they are not a ticket broker. Instead, they offer the option to buy tickets at face value at a future date. They offer options for playoff tickets as well as several key regular season games. So say you want tickets to the 2nd round of the playoffs but you want to make sure you can get tickets without having to pay the marked up rates in the secondary market. You go to OptionIt, buy an option to buy the tickets, and when they go on sale, you have the option to buy them at face value. You can even sell your option to someone else if you like. To learn more about OptionIt and how you can take advantage of their program, visit them at OptionIt.com or just look around while you are signing up for the giveaway.
