Boston - Sept 30, 2010 -TixList, a free daily email listing awesome ticket deals around Boston at face value or below, today announced that over 1000 pairs of tickets have been listed through the service. Using a network of season ticket holders, Craigslist, and ticket brokers, TixList filters through the scams and scalpers often associated with sporting events and concert tickets, delivering a daily dose of value directly to the inbox. TixList is free to join and free to list tickets for sale thanks to email sponsorships.

“Who wants to pay over face value? Not me. Subscribers of TixList are able to quickly identify awesome ticket deals saving hours of frustration, and best of all, every ticket is either face value or below," said Founder Christian Galvin. "TixList subscribers have sat in field box seats at Fenway, floor seats at the Garden, sideline seats at Gillette, and orchestra seats at the Wang Theatre, without ever paying a dollar over face value."

A Red Sox season ticket holder since 2002, Galvin grew increasingly frustrated by the state of the ticket resale marketplace. Initially launched as a service to friends and family who were interested in seeing a few games per year at Fenway, the list has grown from 25 subscribers to over 2500 mostly via word-of-mouth. "Since it's nearly impossible to attend 81 baseball games per year, I had to find ways to distribute tickets, and email was always the easiest for me." This simplicity, combined with the deterioration of Craigslist and the increasing cost of using Stubhub, forced the entrepreneur to scratch his own back and launch a new platform. "Legitimate fans buying and selling tickets is being replaced by far too much noise in the online ticket marketplace, including fake listings, scams, and scalpers, which can often turn searching for the best ticket deal into a part-time job," Galvin noted. "Something needed to change and TixList was born. Think of it as Craigslist with a filter, delivered directly to your inbox. I want everyone in Boston to sit a few rows from the action without paying over face."

TixList was launched for less than $500 and is currently evaluating New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, and Dallas for possibly expansion. For sponsors, TixList provides an engaged, local audience with email open rates and click through rates that are smashing industry norms.
