Were your plans for the weekend cancelled last-minute? Are you out of fun date ideas? Do you just really love basketball or football?
Then get excited: this month, Scottsdale-based ReplyBuy Inc. signed a three-year contract with the Arizona Rattlers, Phoenix Suns, Phoenix Mercury, and Talking Stick Resort Arena. The partnership will let fans buy game tickets with a single text on their mobile phones.
You got it—no more outrageous fees from online ticket centers, and no more scoping out Craigslist and Facebook for last-minute tix. Instead, ReplyBuy will text you to let you know when tickets go on sale. You just have to reply with the word “BUY” to . . . well, you know.
Signing up for text message alerts takes less than five minutes (far less than you’ll ever spend on any ticket sales site). Just click the Arizona Rattlers, Phoenix Suns, Phoenix Mercury, or Talking Stick Resort Arena logo on ReplyBuy’s homepage. Then fill the follow-up form with your name, email address, and phone number.
As soon as you enter your information, you’ll receive a text message inviting you to confirm text message alerts. Once you confirm, ReplyBuy will send you a link for payment setup. You can link PayPal, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express, or Braintree to your account. After that, you’re done!
When tickets for your favorite team go on sale, ReplyBuy will let you know via text. You just have to reply with the word “BUY” to finish up the purchase. The sooner you respond, the better your seats will be. And you don’t have to have any special apps to display or print your tickets. ReplyBuy sends you a unique link to your tickets for you to print from or show at the gate.
Before its partnership with the Arizona Rattlers, Phoenix Suns, Phoenix Mercury, and Talking Stick Resort Arena, ReplyBuy sold University of Arizona game tickets on its platform. Now it just might be the easiest (and fastest) way to buy tickets in Arizona!
