My name is Brendan Reilly and Anytixx is my mission and passion.
Since my partners and I started Anytixx in the fall of 2017, thousands of sports fans and concert goers have visited Anytixx to find cheaper tickets, avoid paying ridiculous fees on their tickets, and have the peace of mind they aren’t getting scammed by a greedy ticket website.
There is something exciting happening right now. You see, we started Anytixx because we realized there are ticketing companies making BILLIONS of dollars off you and me by marking up tickets and tacking on extremely high fees. They are banking on the fact that we’ll just “deal with it” and buy the tickets anyway. But ever since we rolled out Anytixx, I’ve had so many people call me and say, “Just want you to know, I can now bring my family to a ballgame.” You have no idea how cool that is to hear that we are helping people save money.
The ticket industry doesn’t want you to know this, but most of the tickets you see on the “big boys” sites like Stubhub, Seatgeek, Ticketmaster, and Vivid Seats are the EXACT SAME TICKETS that are for sale on our site. I have a background working for an MLB team in their ticketing office. I know how the industry works, and I simply couldn’t sit on my hands any longer. I couldn’t stand the thought of someone just gouging me for a higher price…”just because they can”. The more the other founders and myself dove into the industry, the more we realized…it’s insane how much money is made at my and your expense.
My passion isn’t cheap tickets. Actually, the “ticket industry” isn’t a passion of mine at all. But I do have a lot of great memories as a kid of my dad taking my brother and I to a ballgame (I still remember when the Chiefs kicked a field goal to beat John Elway’s Broncos in the freezing cold :), and I’ve had equally as many great times with my friends going to ballgames and concerts now that I’m an adult. If we can make the access to these events cheaper, we can help you go and make more memories of your own….and that is special.
The number one email we get is “How do I know this is real? It sounds too good to be true?” What a great question to get. There are no gimmicks or sneaky fees, we are able to “keep the lights on” through the $1.99 subscription you contribute. Everything else is basically pass through costs from the sports team, concert venue, artist, etc that you are going to see perform. Basically the $24 a year total you will pay (which is usually less than the fees you would pay on just 1 ticket with everyone else!!!) ensures you get the cheapest ticket on the internet for whatever event you want to go to.
Heck, we are so pumped about it, we even guarantee we will pay you cash if you find a better deal online. My advisors tell me this isn’t a good business idea, but I really don’t care….we are putting our money where our mouth is and ensuring our members get the best deal possible.
Another thing Anytixx has enabled us to do is help make the world a better place. Every ticket that is purchased on our website gives someone in a developing country safe water for one whole year! Think about that! You get a cheaper ticket, you will never pay fees on your tickets again, AND you get to make a real difference in someone’s life. That’s pretty cool. Special thanks to Water.org for letting us contribute to your mission.
This has been a fun start for us, and we are thrilled to see what 2018 is going to bring.
