Our Deal Score feature is of our most helpful to users, but most complex aspects of the site. We launched it in a primitive form and our continually evolving it's capabilities e.g. absolute deal score. As a result, we have quite a few disparate posts on the topic so I am using this blog post as gateway to information about Deal Score moving forward. Any new post on the topic will be link to from here and we will update our definition of Deal Score accordingly as it continues to evolve.
What is Deal Score?
Deal Score is SeatGeek’s proprietary system that provides a way to make simple apples-to-apples comparisons between a set of ticket listings for a given event. Deal Score assigns a 1 to 100 value score to every ticket listing in the stadium, weighing a bundle of factors from price and row location to expected sightlines and broader ticket availability. Deal Score provides an easy way to judge whether a given ticket in a venue is a “good deal” or not, and to compare listings from all parts of the venue.
