In anticipation of their Minneapolis launch the good folks at Goldstar are giving away four gift certificates. These gift certificates are available for any event from Goldstar’s many partners, it’s like a Choose Your Own Prize contest.
Our site and emails are filled with fun things to do, and the experience is customized to you using sophisticated technology.
We work with more than 4,000 venues and producers across the country, and offer the world’s largest selection of half price tickets.
Member reviews. We’re one of the world’s largest online sources of live entertainment user reviews. Everything else you need for a great night out.
Get everything from a venue map to tips on how to dress, where to eat and where to park.
How Do We Do That?Unlike so many ticket sellers online, we’re not brokers. We work directly with our 4,000 venue partners to connect them with our huge and growing Goldstar audience. Not every show sells out, so instead of letting seats go empty, venues list them with us to sell to our members.
Here’s a small list of partners
Northrop at the University of Minnesota
Minnesota Lynx (WNBA)
Children’s Theatre Company
Acme Comedy Company
The Schubert Club
Theatre in the Round
Great American Gem Show & Sale
Minnesota Opera (though season is dark at moment)

Ready to win?
Here’s all you have to do.
1st Place Prize: Best Photo - Include a link to your photo(s) in the comment section and I’ll select the top five photos and put a poll on the site to allow readers to vote for the winner. (Mn images only. Extra point for images from an event in Mn.)
2nd Place Prize- Best comment - Tell me where you’d go and who you’d like to take, make some stuff up, be crazy. Enter multiple comments, top others or top yourself with silliness. I will pick the most creative comment.
3rd Place Prize – Laziest comment - All you have to do is say who you’d take with you. (first name is enough). I’ll randomly pick two of you slackers and give you each a gift certificate.
The prizes are as follows: 1st place, $100 gift certificate and your winning photo featured. 2nd place, $50 gift certificate and the new Gorillaz CD Plastic Beach. 3rd place 2 winners of $25 dollar gift certificates.
The beauty is that these gift certificates are good for tickets that are already marked down 50 percent which means more bang for the buck.
It’s easy. It’s fun. It’s free.
And you don’t even have to annoy your tweet stream with a bunch of RT’s.
Don’t forget to head over to Goldstar,check out their events, and sign up for half priced notifications.
May the best, most creative, and the laziest win. I’ll keep the contest open until next Monday.
